Wondering what Chef Meg's been cooking up this month? She's continuing to grill up healthy favorites, from peppers and sausage to steak. She came up with a super easy whole-wheat flatbread recipe that can be paired with hummus or turned into a kid-friendly and adult-approved BBQ chicken pizza! Yum!

This hearty yet better-for-you dinner is perfect for a camping trip, a cookout with friends, or just dinner on a Wednesday night.
