Use your grill to make this quick, easy, and delicious meal. (No grill? Use a grill pan instead.)


  • 1 pound pizza dough, thawed if frozen

  • Flour, for work surface

  • Extra-virgin olive oil

  • 4 ounces soft goat cheese, crumbled

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced ¼ inch thick

  • 1 cup baby spinach

  • 1 avocado, diced large

  • 3 tablespoons fresh oregano leaves

  • ¼ cup fresh basil leaves

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Heat a grill to medium. Clean and lightly oil hot grill. Divide pizza dough into 4 balls. On a lightly floured work surface, stretch or roll dough into 6-inch rounds. Lightly brush both sides of each with olive oil and transfer to grill. Cook until undersides are lightly charred and bubbles form all over top, 1 to 2 minutes. With tongs, flip dough and grill until lightly charred, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board. Top crusts with goat cheese, tomatoes, spinach, avocado, oregano, and basil. To serve, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
