Ingredients

12 ounces raw spicy lamb sausage (ideally Merguez sausage)
1 small zucchini, cut lengthwise into thin ribbons with a vegetable peeler or mandoline
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided Kosher salt to taste
1/4 cup uncooked grits or polenta, for rolling the dough
1 ball prepared pizza dough, at room temperature
1/4 cup store-bought olive tapenade
1 1/2 cups grated smoked mozzarella cheese
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings
12 cherry tomatoes, quartered
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
Leaves from 4 sprigs fresh oregano or 2 teaspoons dried
Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat a medium sauté pan over medium-high heat for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove the sausage from the casing and “scramble” in the pan, breaking up any clumps, until fully cooked. Drain on paper towels and reserve for topping.
  2. Preheat the grill.
  3. Brush the zucchini with 1 tablespoon of the oil and lightly salt. Gently place on the cooking grate directly over the heat and grill until soft and well marked, about 3 minutes. Reserve for topping.
  4. Roll out and shape the dough, then grill the first side of the crust per the master instructions. Use tongs to transfer it from the grill to a peel or rimless baking sheet. Flip the crust to reveal the grilled side.
  5. Spread the entire surface with the olive puree, then top with the crumbled lamb.
  6. Sprinkle with the mozzarella, then add the onion rings, zucchini, and tomatoes. Sprinkle the feta over all.
  7. Finish grilling the pizza.
  8. Remove from the grill, sprinkle with the oregano, and season with salt and pepper. Slice and serve immediately.

I'll use my crookneck squash from my garden and send hubby to get that lamb sausage, but I assume I could sub ground lamb and spice it up a bit. Drooling big time!

Wish I had all the ingredients for this 'cause I'd make it for lunch right now. My mouth is watering! May have to try it for a party we're having in a few weeks. Would work great cut into bite sized pieces for everyone to grab a taste.
