BEYOND SAUSAGE AND PEPPERONI

Let your inner cook have a little fun and experiment with flavor combinations you won't find at the local pizzeria. Here are some flavorful options we liked:

1. Zucchini: Olive oil (instead of red sauce), topped with slices of lightly grilled yellow and green zucchini (toss them with a little olive oil before grilling the zukes). Sprinkle with chopped fresh thyme and coarse salt. Top with shredded mozzarella.

2. Mushroom: Olive oil (instead of red sauce), topped with lightly sautéed mushrooms (a variety of them is especially nice). Sprinkle with chopped fresh thyme and crumbled feta cheese.

3. Pesto: Pesto sauce (instead of red sauce), topped with cherry tomatoes tossed in a little olive oil. Top with shredded mozzarella.

4. Smoked salmon: Cook both sides of crust first. Spread softened cream cheese (instead of red sauce) and top with smoked salmon. Sprinkle grated hard-cooked egg yolks, chopped fresh dill and capers. Do not return to heat.
