Grilled Pizzas With Ricotta, Summer Squash, and Scallions
Serves 4| Hands-On Time: | Total Time:
- 2 summer squash or zucchini (about 1 pound), thinly sliced lengthwise
- 2 bunches scallions
- 6 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for serving
- kosher salt and black pepper
- 1 pound pizza dough, at room temperature
- 1 15-ounce container ricotta
- 2 bunches arugula, thick stems removed (6 cups)
- 4 radishes, halved and thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- Heat grill to medium. In a shallow baking dish or large bowl, toss the squash and scallions with 2 tablespoons of the oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Grill the vegetables until cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes per side for the squash and 1 to 2 minutes per side for the scallions. Cut up the scallions; return the vegetables to the dish.
- Stretch the dough into four 8-inch rounds. Dividing evenly, brush the dough (on both sides) with 2 tablespoons of the oil. Grill the dough until puffed and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Dividing evenly, dollop the ricotta on the pizzas and top with the grilled vegetables.
- In a medium bowl, toss the arugula and radishes with the vinegar, the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Drizzle the pizzas with additional oil and serve with the salad.

The pizza dough cooks quickly, so have all your toppings ready to go before you put the rounds on the grill. To flip the dough more easily, skip the spatula and use tongs.
