Vegetarian: Grilled Alfredo Pizza

So one thing that I can never post enough of and I am constantly getting emails for is Vegetarian entrees that don't always have eggplant in them! hehe So I came up with this little recipe that satisfies your taste a vegetarian meal without being "Eggplant Parmesan"!

Grilled Alfredo Pizza
Grocery List:
1 tube refrigerated pizza crust
1 lb whole portobello mushrooms, stems removed
1 each red and yellow pepper, quartered and cored
1 each medium zucchini and yellow summer squash, cut lengthwise in 1⁄2-in.-thick slices
Nonstick spray
3⁄4 tsp salt
1 cup reduced-fat mushroom Alfredo sauce (or jarred Alfredo and a can of mushroom slices)
5 oz smoked mozzarella cheese, shredded (11⁄4 cups)

How to make it:
1. Heat barbecue grill. Lightly dust 2 baking sheets with flour.

2. On a lightly floured surface, press dough into a 15 x 11-in. rectangle. Cut in quarters; place 2 on each baking sheet.

3. Lightly coat veggies with nonstick spray; sprinkle with salt.

4. Grill vegetables, turning once: mushrooms and peppers 10 to 12 minutes (mushrooms should be tender and peppers charred), squashes 8 to 10 minutes until tender. Cut mushrooms and peppers in slices, squashes in half crosswise.

5. Grill 2 pieces pizza dough at a time, 1 minute or until undersides are browned. Using tongs, turn dough over and grill 30 seconds or until undersides stiffen. Return to baking sheets; repeat with remaining dough. Spread crusts with sauce. Top with vegetables and cheese.

6. Grill 2 pizzas at a time, covered, 2 to 3 minutes until cheese melts, making sure undersides of pizzas don’t burn.Take ingredients to the grill along with a cutting board and knife.
