San Francisco Giants

The San Francisco Bay Area represents a colorful mosaic of diverse cultures, lifestyles and flavors. Our grilled vegetable flatbread is inspired by the city’s strong Italian food heritage, but also features a brilliant salsa verde that takes this non-traditional pizza over the top.

Let's get grilling

1 To make the salsa verde in a food processor or blender, combine all herbs, lemon zest, 2 teaspoons lemon juice, garlic, capers, anchovy (if using) and red pepper flakes. Process until leaves are finely minced. With machine running, slowly add 1/2 cup olive oil until sauce is a creamy yellow-green color. Salt and pepper to taste.
2 Build a two-zone fire, placing preheated Kingsford® Original Charcoal, briquets on one half of the bottom grill grate and leaving the other side void.
3 Toss zucchini, asparagus and red onions (can substitute 1½–2 pounds seasonal vegetables of choice) with 3 tablespoons olive oil, 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
4 Grill over direct heat, turning often, until tender and charred in spots, about 5 minutes; transfer to the void side of the grill.
5 Lightly oil grill grate and divide pizza dough in half. Gently roll and stretch each piece into a rectangle or oval about 14x8 inches and transfer to two lightly oiled baking sheets. (If it springs back, cover and let rest 10 minutes, then stretch again).
6 Transfer dough to grill over direct heat. Cook until first side is lightly charred and dough is dry and stiff; one to two minutes. Turn and cook just until reverse side has a few light grill marks; 30 to 60 seconds. Transfer to baking sheets and let cool slightly.
7 Top charred side of dough with the grilled vegetables, dividing evenly. Dollop ricotta over the vegetables on both flatbreads and drizzle with the salsa verde.
8 Cut each flatbread into three to four pieces and serve immediately.
