Grilled Vegetable Pizza, covered with vegetables that have been grilled, with a slight char, and full of flavor. The cheese is Camembert and it compliments the vegetables on this pizza perfectly!
I love eating meals like this Grilled Vegetable Pizza! Grumpy was working out of town a little while back and when he works out of town, that is when I like to experiment and make recipes that I know he would probably give me resistance on. I have to admit, one of the hardest things about being a food blogger is loving to experiment and your partner giving you rife about it. (until he does eat it and realizes it is good!!
Grumpy would probably like the grilled vegetable part of this pizza (minus the tomatoes) but I highly doubt he would have approved of the Camembert cheese! Hey, this is the man who wanted me to put American Cheese Slices on his Grilled Asparagus, Taleggio, and Fried Egg Panini! My reasoning for choosing Camembert was because it was slightly mild and soft, and it would not overpower the grilled vegetable flavor I wanted on this pizza. If I were to make this for Grumpy, I'd have to use a cheese like colby jack which I think would go well with the veggies also. So if you don't like Camembert, you could probably go with colby jack cheese.In my opinion, this turned out absolutely delicious! It was a big pizza for just one person but I enjoyed this for dinner, breakfast (yes, breakfast!), and it produced a few lunches for me also! I love how the Camembert was creamy enough to just spread over the pizza, resulting in no need for a sauce of any kind. It also melted perfectly as you can see in the photo above!
The only part of this recipe that was not grilled were the sweet hot cherry peppers. They were added to give the recipe a little bit of that sweet heat that I love so much! This pizza can pretty much be whatever you want it to be using the veggies you love cooked on the grill the most! What veggies would you use on this pizza?
- 1 pre-baked pizza crust (I used store bought)
- Assorted grilled veggies - I used:
- Heirloom Tomatoes
- 6 ounces Camembert Cheese at room temperature
- Prep veggies by cooking on the grill over a medium heat. I brush my veggies with a little olive oil and then season with some grinder garlic salt. The corn will take the longest to grill, about 7 minutes.
- Spread Camembert Cheese over top of pre-baked pizza crust. Layer veggies on top of crust and place on grill over low heat. Grill about 7-10 minutes, until the cheese has melted and crust is hot.
- Serve immediately.

Dear Shelby, the camembert on this veggie pizza sounds amazing. (Perhaps Grumpy should go out of town more often.) Too bad I'm not closer, I'd totally dig sharing this pizza with you and a bottle of white along with!
Ha! I can totally relate! Bill would be picking at the veggies looking for sausage or some sort of meat! He gives me that "look" when I want to order mushrooms on half the pizza! I'd be delighted with your grilled veggie pizza and would be happy not to share 🙂

Aww lol. The hubs just takes what I give him and eats haha. Maybe eventually yours will give up the fight lol. This pizza sounds delish!
I love the idea of Camembert for the cheese/sauce. I get tired of typical tomato sauce all the time, and love how this still has the tomato flavor but it's not so dominant! Yum!

This looks so wonderful!! I love Camembert, but I've never tried it on pizza! Love all the veggies on this too; looks so good for you, but delicious!

I think the Camembert would be wonderful on this pizza! Just the kind of indulgence I want for dinner. As a fellow blogger - I want to send you solidarity -- I get resistance from my family too!
