Pizza is a food group, right? A staple in every household kitchen for long days when you don’t have the energy to cook, or when no one in the family can agree on what to have for dinner? But indulging in a childhood favorite doesn’t mean you and your family need to sacrifice on health! This grilled veggie pesto pizza puts a twist on a classic, making it feel fancy without any of the hassle. Just fire up the grill, grab some seasonings, and you’re nearly done.
Grilled Veggie Pesto Pizza
Heat grill to about 350 degrees. Put vegetables into a grill pan or foil on the grill. Leave for about 15-20 minutes, until soft and slightly burnt. At the same time, put the chicken on the grill, leaving for about 5 minutes or until cooked through on the bottom. Flip, and continue cooking for 5 more minutes, or until fully cooked.
While the vegetables and chicken are cooking, combine all ingredients for the pesto in a food processor, scraping down sides as necessary, until smooth. Add up to 1 tablespoon oil if needed, and adjust seasonings to taste.*
Grill the flatbread for about 5 minutes a side. Cut the chicken into smaller pieces. Spread pesto on the flatbread crust, then add the vegetables and chicken. Slice into wedges and enjoy!
*Alternatively, you can buy pesto from the store!
