Grilled Pizza with Pesto, Tomatoes & Feta
from South Beach Diet
Pizza isn't entirely off limits on The South Beach Diet. In fact, if it's piled high with a variety of vegetables, it can be a sensible option for dinner. Just choose a whole wheat crust whenever possible -- and make sure you don't overindulge. The next time you're planning a backyard barbecue, try this South Beach Diet.Phase 3 recipe, which can be made on the grill.
1 pound prepared pizza dough, preferably whole-wheat
1/2 cup prepared pesto
4 ripe plum tomatoes, thinly sliced
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 teaspoon paprika
Freshly ground pepper to taste
1/4 cup lightly packed fresh basil leaves, torn
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 1/4 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.
