Ingredients

Directions

  • Brush zucchini, summer squash, and sweet pepper with olive oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. For a charcoal grill, grill vegetables on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals until crisp-tender, turning once halfway through grilling. Allow 8 to 10 minutes for sweet pepper and 5 to 6 minutes for zucchini and summer squash. Remove vegetables from grill.

  • Chop grilled vegetables. In a medium bowl combine chopped vegetables, tomato, mayonnaise, and pesto. Spread vegetable mixture over one side of pitas. Sprinkle with shredded cheese. Place on grill rack. Cover and grill for 2 to 3 minutes or until pitas are lightly toasted, vegetables are heated, and cheese melts. Carefully remove from grill. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Cover and grill vegetables and pitas as above.) Makes 4 pizzas.
