Pizza with Blue Cheese and Grilled Summer Veggies

I made an extra large batch of Grilled Summer Squash and Onions last weekend and use it in a couple recipes over the course of the week.  Feel free to substitute other veggies (eggplant, tomatoes, red peppers once they come into season). This is a good one if you are a blue cheese lover like myself.

I liked this with the tomato sauce, but you could skip it and put the mozzarella on the bottom if you like, to emphasize the flavors of the veggies more.

1 14-inch pizza crust
olive oil
3/4 cup tomato sauce (optional)
2 cups Grilled Summer Squash and Onions
2-3 oz crumbled or diced blue cheese (Gorgonzola or local blue of your choice)
2-3 oz shredded mozzarella

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.  Lightly paint the pizza crust with olive oil.

Spread the sauce over the crust, then top with the grilled vegetables.  Sprinkle with blue cheese and mozzarella, then bake for 15-18 minutes, until the crust is done and the cheese begins to brown.

Serves 3-4.
