Grilled Pizza

Good Morning! I hope everyone had a great weekend! We had a great one; we got to spend time with friends and Griffin got to go to a birthday party! It was a great time and I also learned that Capri Sun + a toddler = more energy than I’ve ever seen!  I’ve never seen him run so much in my life!  Ha!

So, I don’t know about you, but I’ve been struggling to come up with new, lighter dinners lately.  I’m loving all the fresh produce the summer offers, but after more salads than I can count, I feel like I need to mix it up a little. Enter grilled pizza. I experimented with different toppings-one was a margherita and the other fig jam, brie, and salad greens. They were actually really simple and the flavors were amazing. They were a hit with everyone-even the picky toddler! Here’s how they came together…

Ingredients:

store-bought pizza dough

olive oil

tomato paste

fresh mozzarella

fresh basil

fig jam

a soft cheese (I really like d’Affinois)

salad greens

lemon vinaigrette

Directions:

Stretch the pizza dough out onto a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Brush olive oil on the dough.

Transfer the dough, olive-oiled side down, onto a hot grill. Brush olive oil onto the second side. Cover and allow to cook for 5 minutes.  The dough will begin to bubble, this is when you’ll know to flip it over.

Have your prepared toppings nearby so you can begin assembling the pizzas.

After 5 minutes, transfer the pizzas to the upper grill grates so that the bottom does not burn.  Close the cover and allow to cook until the cheese has melted.

I added mixed greens dressed in lemon vinaigrette to the fig jam and brie pie. This was definitely the winner!
