This smoky grilled pizza scores big with me for two rea­sons. It en­cour­ages my hus­band and son to eat greens, and it show­cases fresh pro­duce. —Sarah Gray, Erie, CO

5. Care­fully in­vert pizza crusts onto oiled grill rack; re­move foil. Grill, cov­ered, over medium heat un­til the bot­toms are lightly browned,

3-5 min­utes. Turn; grill un­til sec­ond side be­gins to brown, 1-2 min­utes.

6. Re­move from grill. Spread with pesto; top with beet greens, cheeses and toma­toes. Return piz­zas to grill. Cook, cov­ered, over medium heat un­til cheese is melted, 2-4 min­utes. Sprin­kle with basil.
