Grilled Vegetable Pizza with Feta and Spinach
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Any flavor of feta cheese will work in this pizza. The tangy, fresh spinach mixture is a nice contrast to the grilled veggies and cheese.
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 (1-1/4-pound) eggplant, cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 10-inch pizza crusts
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 cups chopped plum tomato (about 8 tomatoes)
1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled feta cheese with basil and tomato
2 tablespoons chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 cups thinly sliced spinach leaves
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1. Prepare grill.
2. Combine 3 tablespoons vinegar and garlic in a small bowl; brush over both sides of eggplant slices. Sprinkle both sides of eggplant with pepper and salt. Place eggplant on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 2 minutes per side or until tender. Remove from grill; set aside.
3. Place 1 crust on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 3 minutes or until puffy and golden. Turn crust, grill-mark side up; brush with 1 teaspoon oil. Arrange half of eggplant slices over crust, overlapping slightly. Top with half of tomato, cheese, and oregano. Cover and grill 3 to 4 minutes or until thoroughly heated; remove from heat. Combine spinach and 2 tablespoons vinegar in a small bowl. Top pizza with half of spinach mixture. Repeat with remaining crust and toppings.
Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1/3 pizza).
