If pizza is a family favourite in your house, this summery grilled version will be a hit. Take the dough out of the fridge about 15 minutes before using so it's easier to shape.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic finely grated or pressed
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
  • pinch each salt and pepper
  • 1 asparagus about 450 g, trimmed
  • 350 g prepared pizza dough
  • 1 1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup halved cherry tomato

Method

In small bowl, whisk together half of the oil, the garlic, oregano, lemon zest, hot pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Set aside.

Toss asparagus with 1 tsp of the remaining oil. Place on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning often, until grill-marked and tender-crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Set aside.

On lightly floured work surface, roll or press out dough to form 16- x 8 1/2-inch (40 x 22 cm) oval. Brush 1 side with 1 tsp of the remaining oil. Place, oiled side down, on greased grill over medium heat; grill, uncovered, until bubbles form on top and bottom is grill-marked, about 3 minutes. Brush with remaining oil.

Reduce heat to medium-low; flip crust and brush with garlic mixture. Top with mozzarella, asparagus and tomatoes. Close lid and grill until cheese is melted and bottom is browned, 5 to 8 minutes.

Tip from The Test Kitchen: Barbecue temperatures vary, so keep an eye on the bottom of the crust to make sure it doesn't burn.
