summer pizza

By: Laura Collins

Summer is one of the busiest times of year around our house. I am always on the lookout for simple recipes I can throw together last minute. This is a perfect recipe for entertaining, it has a handful of ingredients, and only requires a few minutes on the grill, just make sure you have enough when guests ask for seconds!!! PIZZA copy 2 You will need: - Store bought naan. I prefer the garlic variety for added flavour, however plain is also amazing and you can season it if you would like with fresh herbs. - Toppings!!! I used prosciutto, tomato, goat cheese, fresh basil, pesto, and arugula. Step 1 Prepare the naan by brushing on a generous amount of olive oil for grilling. Step 2 Add the desired amount pesto and goat cheese onto each pizza, top with tomatoes, and prosciutto. Step 3 Place on the grill atop tin foil to control the rate of grilling. Check occasionally to monitor the level of crispiness, you will also want the cheese to melt, so pay attention to that. Step 4 Remove from grill, top with fresh basil, arugula and drizzle with olive oil! Enjoy with sparkling wine, prosecco, or bellini!! Other topping suggestions: Smoked Salmon Pizza: Smoked Salmon, capers, cream cheese, topped with olive oil and arugula. California: Shrimp, pesto, sun dried tomatoes, goat cheese, topped with lemon wedges, olive oil and arugula. Italian: Sausage, tomato sauce (use sparingly), pepperoni, parmesan, mozzarella, topped with olive oil and arugula. Caprese: The simplest and oh so delicious: Cherry tomatoes, fresh buffalo mozzarella, fresh basil, topped with olive oil and arugula. Serve an assortment for guest to sample!! Grill copy Leave the pizza to grill on top of the foil for about 5- 10 minutes. Keep an eye on the bread to make sure it is not burning! Remove when it is crispy on the surface!! Pizza2 Sprinkle freshly picked basil, as well as arugula to garnish. If you have lemon, thinly slice and serve on top, for drizzling! What is your favourite last minute dish when entertaining?
