by | Mar 9, 2018 | Articles, Life & Style, Nutrition

If you want a dish that will impress your friends and family this is the one. Not only does it have delicious flavor, but it is a pizza that is cooked on a grill! One whole pizza is only 455 calories, so don’t be afraid to grab a few extra slices.


What you will need

1 lb prepared pizza dough, preferably whole-wheat

½ cup prepared pesto

4 ripe plum tomatoes, thinly sliced

½ cup crumbled feta cheese

¼ cup lightly packed fresh basil leaves, torn

freshly ground pepper, to taste



Heat grill to medium-high.


Meanwhile, place dough on a lightly floured surface. Divide into 4 pieces. Roll each piece into an 8-inch round crust, about ¼ inch thick. Place crusts on a floured baking sheet. Carry crusts and toppings out to the grill.


Lay crusts on grill (they won’t stay perfectly round). Cover grill and cook until crusts are lightly puffed and undersides are lightly browned, about 3 minutes.


Using tongs, flip crusts. Immediately spread pesto over crusts. Top with tomatoes. Sprinkle with feta and pepper. Cover grill and cook until the undersides are lightly browned, about 3 minutes more. Sprinkle with basil and serve immediately.
