What Makes this Pizza So Special
This pizza is vegetarian and based on a selection of fresh vegetables. Although veggies can be added to seafood or meat pizza recipes, they can also be the focal point of the dish in their own right. The vegetables in this recipe are brushed with garlic and olive oil and then wrapped in foil and cooked on the barbeque. Roasting them in this way over the high heat means the garlic will infuse them while the oil keeps them moist, and the flavors will develop perfectly. Wrapping them in foil not only stops them from falling through the grate but it also means the flavors are sealed into the foil package and you will not be losing any of the juices.
Take care when opening those foil packets because steam is going to shoot out of them and you do not want that to get in your face, so let them cool for 10 minutes or so, and then open them but away from your face. The pizza crusts are then spread with pizza sauce, then you can add the roasted vegetables, spreading them out with your fingers, along with plenty of grated or shredded mozzarella cheese. The main flavors are the vegetables, tomato sauce and mozzarella, as well as the hint of garlic you used in the roasted vegetable packets. This keeps things simple and rustic, but yields an incredible flavor, and this pizza is wonderful for vegetarians and also carnivores who fancy a change of pace.
