    Delicious! No matter what combination of veggies you use this is going to be good. This is a great base to get creative and use what you may have on hand or fresh from your garden. I used portobello mushrooms, tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, red and green peppers, and red onion. I also used pizza sauce vs. pesto. You can also add different types of cheeses as well like fresh mozzarella, Asiago, Parmesan or Romano. Chopped fresh basil is a great addition too - YUM!  -  01 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good. I put a few different toppings on mine, because I didn't have squash, onions or portabella mushrooms. I did add sliced mushrooms to bf's pizza, but left it off mine because I don't like mushrooms. I added red peppers to mine. Only issue I had was with the times, but I think that's my grill--even the low setting is too high. Thanks for sharing the recipe!  -  05 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I loved it, I made my pizza dough and I added some onion. I also added some goat cheese on top along with the gorgonzola because I didn't have fontina and it was fantastic, thanks so much!  -  08 Oct 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
