This is a very healthy recipe. Vegetables including spinach are combined with garlic and feta to make this a wholesome and delicious vegetable pizza recipe. Spinach is high in vitamin A and vitamin C and vitamin K. Grilled vegetable recipes often use a combination of flavors, colors and textures and this recipe does the same.

Vinegar is used in this recipe to enhance the taste of the vegetables and to complement the slightly sharp flavor of the feta cheese. This vegetable pizza is very easy to make and will definitely be a hit with your family or guests. If you want to, you can use zucchini instead of eggplant in the recipe.

Save time by using readymade pizza crusts or, if you prefer, you can make your own dough. Pizza crusts are always handy though, and if you keep some in the refrigerator or freezer, along with some pizza sauce, you can rustle up a wonderful homemade pizza whenever you are in the mood for some. The following recipe offers a fresh and tasty result, because some of the ingredients are fresh, namely the garlic, spinach, eggplant and tomatoes, and then you have balsamic vinegar and crushed red pepper to liven up the flavor and make it extra-special. The combination of mozzarella, feta and parmesan offers a trio of wonderful cheese flavors which you will love. If you are looking for a vegetable pizza recipe which offers a range of special flavors but is not too spicy or heavy, this is a great one to consider.

Prepare It Like a Pro

The first thing you need to do is combine the garlic and balsamic vinegar and put this on the eggplant slices, then you can add salt and pepper and grill them. If you dislike the slight bitterness eggplant offers, you might wish to salt the slices and let them sit for half an hour first, before rinsing them, along with the moisture that comes out, and proceeding with the recipe. When the eggplant has been barbequed to tenderness, it is time to grill one of the crusts, and then you can top it. If you are lucky enough to have a huge grill you can do both at once, but many of us have a smaller surface so doing one at a time is the only option. The crusts take about 3 minutes to cook, as do the pizzas once you have topped them.

This easy recipe offers so much flavor, and the best way to discover this is to go ahead and make these pizzas. If 2 pizzas are going to be too many, then just make one, although this is lovely served cold the following day so you might just want to make the pair of them. The feta and spinach offer a hint of Greek flavor to the pizza, and this makes a change from pizza margarita or the standard ones you might usually have. So if you are new to cooking pizza on the barbeque, this recipe is highly recommended because the smoke from the barbeque really brings out the flavor of the fabulous veggies you are using.
