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.

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.
