Grilled Summer Vegetable Pizza with Sweet Onions

There’s always an abundance of veggies like Vidalia onions, tomatoes, zucchini and mushrooms during the summer. For the pizza recipe, we grill the veggies first to give them a delicious flavor then add to our pizza along with fresh mozzarella for a meal the whole family loves. Have different veggies on hand?
