Before you know it, your kids will be happily munching their veggies, and begging for more. These pizza's are simple, healthy and are sure to be a family favourite in no time!



  1. Brush sliced squash with olive oil, and season well with salt and pepper. Toss on a hot grill and cook until underside is golden brown and the squash begins to soften. Use a fork to flip squash over, top with cheddar cheese, or vegan cheese of your choice, and continue cooking until both sides are golden brown and the cheese melts. Set aside.
  2. Make a quick pan sauce for your pizzas by add the tomatoes, 3 tsp. olive oil, salt and pepper, garlic, and basil to a hot saute pan. cook until hot and bubbly, and the tomatoes begin to break down.
  3. Assemble your pizzas by topping the grilled yellow squash crusts with your favourite toppings. Give capsicum, onion and Kalamata olives a try!
