Ingredients

  • 1 pkg. (10.5 oz. ) Italian artisan pizza crust or naan flatbread
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1/2 cup kale pesto
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced
  • 1 pkg. (10 oz.) cherry heirloom tomatoes, chopped, 1 1/2 cups*
  • 1 tsp. balsamic vinegar

Instructions

  • Preheat grill for direct heat grilling.
  • Brush top of pizza crust with 1 Tbs. olive oil. Place, oiled side down, on grill. Grill until hot and just beginning to blacken, 2-3 minutes. Meanwhile, brush remaining olive oil on pizza crust that is facing up (this will be the bottom of your pizza once you turn it).
  • Turn pizza crust so top of pizza is now facing up. Top with pesto, mozzarella and tomatoes. Grill until pizza is heated through, 3-4 minutes.
  • Remove from grill and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.

Notes

Makes 6 servings or 12 appetizer servings.
*Can’t find heirloom tomatoes? 1 1/2 cups chopped plum or cherry tomatoes will be fabulously delicious too!
