As the weather heats up, keep your kitchen cool! Grilling goes beyond basic burgers and dogs with this homemade pizza cooked over an open flame. Its chewy, crispy crust and bold, wood-fired flavor beat oven-baked any night—and you can easily customize toppings with fresh-from-your garden herbs or veggies.
Pizza doesn’t have to be off limits just because you’ve gone gluten free. Make your own crisp, chewy crust with good-for-you ingredients such as teff (the world’s smallest gluten-free grain!), hemp seeds and a homemade flax “egg.” Top with your favorite fresh veggies, herbs and vegan cheese for a specialty pie with pizazz!
It’s been a delicious (and healthy) year! Plates were piled high with colorful salads. Meatless Mondays trickled over into Tuesdays (and Wednesdays and Thursdays…). You kicked gluten to the curb. Burned out your blender on micro-greens smoothies. Fell harder in love with chocolate than you ever thought possible, once you tasted it raw.

If you’ve run out of creativity before you’ve run out of squash, fear not. I’ve got a unique recipe your whole family will love.
Squash is deliciously versatile and can be prepared in casseroles, as croquettes, stir-fried, stuffed, baked, boiled or as the “crust” for my recipe for Summer Squash Pizza. It not only tastes great, but it’s good for you. Summer squash is low in calories and a good source of fiber, protein, vitamin A, vitamin C, several B vitamins and minerals, plus omega-3 fatty acids. But the nutrients are in the peel, so never peel summer squash.
This all-veggie pizza is full of flavor on its own, but you can add two or three ounces of sliced pepperoni, cooked sausage or cooked, diced, chicken, if you’d like. Any leftover sauce can be used on pasta, refrigerated for up to five days or frozen for three months.

If you love fresh vegetables and adore pizza, why not combine them on the grill? The best part is that you can change this recipe and use whatever vegetables you have on hand.
Although traditional Neapolitan pizza dough is made only with flour, yeast, salt, and oil, the recipe below has an American twist. This unique recipe uses bread flour for strength, all-purpose flour for tenderness, and cornmeal for flavor and texture. It makes a delicious, slightly crunchy dough. If you don’t want to make your own pizza dough, you can purchase commercially-made dough, dust your board with some cornmeal, and then roll out the dough so that the bottom will be coated with the cornmeal to give it that crispy texture. You can use any combination of the vegetables below on your pizza.

There’s this odd dance that always seems to take place at the birthday parties my kids are invited to:
-Ample pizza is ordered, enough for all of the invited children, their parents, and possibly a small village combined.
-The children eat the pizza.
-The parents do not.
