1/2 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper

1. Heat a grill to high. Combine the tomatoes, onion, 3 tablespoons of the olive oil, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, salt and pepper to taste in a bowl, tossing to coat with your hands. Brush the remaining 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over both sides of the pizza crust.
2. Place the dough over a direct heat on grill; cook until puffy, about 2 minutes; turn over. Cook 2 minutes. Move crust to a cooler part of the grill; top with the tomato-olive mixture. Sprinkle the parsley, fontina and basil over the top. Cover grill; cook until cheese melts, about 8 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Cover; cook until cheese melts, about 2 minutes. Remove from grill; cut into wedges.
