Grilled Pizza with Pesto, Tomatoes and Feta

  Makes 4 servings
  Prep Time: 30 minutes
  Total Time: 30 minutes
  Ease of Preparation: Easy

 1 pound prepared pizza dough, preferably whole-wheat
 1/2 cup prepared pesto
 4 ripe plum tomatoes, thinly sliced
 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
 Freshly ground pepper, to taste
 1/4 cup lightly packed fresh basil leaves, torn


1. Heat grill to medium-high.

2. Meanwhile, place dough on a lightly floured surface. Divide into 4 pieces. Roll each piece into an 8-inch round crust, about 1/4 inch thick. Place crusts on a floured baking sheet. Carry crusts and toppings out to the grill.

3. Lay crusts on grill (they won’t stay perfectly round). Cover grill and cook until crusts are lightly puffed and undersides are lightly browned, about 3 minutes.

4. Using tongs, flip crusts. Immediately spread pesto over crusts. Top with tomatoes. Sprinkle with feta and pepper. Cover grill and cook until the undersides are lightly browned, about 3 minutes more. Sprinkle with basil and serve immediately.
