The wonderful thing about grilled gourmet pizza recipes is that they are tasty enough not to need spices, herbs, or extra seasonings. Of course, people might add salt and pepper afterwards, according to their gourmet pizza taste preference.

Sometimes leaving the pizza simple, using just vegetables and cheese, means the flavor of the vegetables in your vegetable pizza recipe will really shine through. This gourmet pizza is very tasty, thanks to its mouthwatering combination of garlic, spinach, onion, tomato, corn, and two types of cheese.

As well as the pizza dough you will need spinach, onion, tomato and corn to provide the vegetable elements, feta and parmesan to add a cheesy taste, and olive oil and garlic to finish it off. The first thing to do is prepare the barbeque, and while it is heating up you can get on with preparing the other ingredients. Wilt the spinach and then make sure it is well-drained before you chop it. The dough can then be cooked on the barbeque for a few minutes before being brushed with oil and flipped over. This is a popular way of making vegetable pizza on the barbeque. The crust is cooked on one side then topped on the cooked side so the bottom has a chance to cook while your cheese melts and your veggies char in places. You can see how that makes the perfect pizza.

After you have added the spinach, garlic, feta, onion, tomato and corn, the pizza is ready to return to the barbeque to finish off. Put the lid down and cook it for a few minutes until the cheese has melted and the toppings are hot. You will then want to cut into it immediately, slice it into servings, and serve it to all your hungry family and friends, because the wonderful aroma will be driving you crazy! The slight smoky flavor is so good and of course having the lid of the barbeque down makes the smoky flavor more apparent.

Fantastic Fresh Ingredients

The freshness of the ingredients is what makes this pizza extra-special. You will be using spinach, onion, tomato and corn which are all fresh. It will not make much difference if the corn is canned or thawed, so use one of those if you like. The fantastic flavor of the finished pizza will definitely make you want to make it again, and if you have friends over they are sure to ask you for the recipe.

Homemade Pizza Always Wins

This is one of those meals that is always better when homemade. Along with pasta dishes and other Italian favorites, pizza is something you can make yourself at home using fresh ingredients to guarantee a brilliant result. Serve hot, perhaps with some salt and pepper ground over the top. This can be eaten with the hands, although you might wish to serve a small bowl of salad on the side with a fork to eat it. Some people like to serve garlic bread with their pizza, and that is another idea for you. If you want to serve that, it is sure to go down well.

Prep time:

Total time: 
Ingredients
  • 1 lb pizza dough
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • ½ lb spinach
  • 4 oz crumbled feta cheese
  • 8 shaved Parmesan strips
  • ½ onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tomato, not too ripe, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup cooked corn kernels
Instructions
  1. Start a medium hot fire in the grill. Steam the spinach for 3 minutes or until just wilted. Drain well. Taking a handful of spinach at a time, squeeze out all the water and chop it coarsely. Lightly oil the grill rack. Stretch the dough to fit the grill rack and place the rack over the fire. Grill the pizza dough until the bottom is browned. This will take about 5 minutes.
  2. Remove the grill rack and brush the top of the pizza with olive oil. Flip it over and brush oil on the other side. Scatter half the minced garlic over the browned crust. Sprinkle half the feta over, then half the onion, all the tomato slices, half the corn (see our) How to Grill Corn on the Cob recipe for a lovely grilled corn taste, (just grill per recipe then take a knife and scale the corn off the cob), and half the spinach.
  3. Return the pizza, still on the rack, to the grill. Cover and cook for 5 to 8 minutes, checking the crust after 5 minutes. If the pizza is cooking too fast, turn the heat down or move the rack to a cooler spot. Remove the pizza rack and add the remaining ingredients, finishing with the shaved Parmesan pieces, before returning to the grill until all the ingredients are hot and the cheese has started to melt.

Gourmet Spinach, Parmesan, and Tomato Pizza – This is another wonderful pizza that brings out the taste of fresh garden veggies and makes your fresh vegetables come alive with mouthwatering flavor and taste. For a wonderful twist try, it with some corn on the cob that has been grilled with the husk on to preserve the corn’s lovely moister and delicate taste. If you do this, then omit the corn from the toppings. This is a twist on vegetable pizza you will not find in many pizza recipes but is so good you will wonder why you never tried it before.
