Pizza with Grilled Summer Squash and Ricotta

In researching the Mediterranean and Southeast Asian diets where people tend to live longer, meat is never the center of attention and usually is no more than 4 oz a serving. This pizza would be just as good without the sausage on it. I served it with salad and gazpacho. The photo features the crust I bought for my husband at Whole Foods. I also made a gluten free version for myself with this crust recipe. Making you own pizza is easy and much healthier than ordering out.

  • One pizza crust

  • 2 summer squash, thinly sliced

  • 1 cup fresh ricotta

  • 2 hot or sweet sausage links

  • 1 cup marinara

Preheat oven to 425. Pre-bake pizza crust to stiffen the crust for approximately 5 minutes. Meanwhile, slice sausage and cook in a grill pan. Remove from pan once browned, and add summer squash. Grill until tender. Top crust with sauce, cheese, squash and sausage. Bake in oven for 10-12 minutes.
