1 12-inch whole-wheat pizza crust
2 tsp. olive oil
1/2 c. zesty pizza sauce
1 fresh tomato
10 1/2 oz. fresh goat cheese, sliced into medallions 1/8 inch thick
2 Tbsp. fresh basil, cut into thin slices
1 tsp. fresh parsley, torn into small pieces

Preheat grill to 425*. The easiest method for grilling pizza is to partially bake the crust. Grill one side just long enough to firm up the crust so you can move it easily about 3 minutes. Take the crust off the heat and flip it over to arrange the toppings on the baked side. First, spread the olive oil over the entire pizza crust to the edges, then add desired amount of the sauce in the middle, leaving a half inch for the crust. Add tomato slices and the goat cheese, followed by the basil and parsley. Return to the grill and cook for 6-8 minutes on medium or until the crust is golden brown and the goat cheese medallions begin to melt. As an option, grill for 5 minutes then broil for 2 more minutes to brown the goat cheese. Serves 4-6.
