I am pretty sure that this recipe was made for summer. Or maybe summer was made for this recipe? Either way- fresh tomatoes and basil (we also add squash, peppers, whatever is in our garden that week), homemade pesto, plus grilled pizza dough is perfection. Seriously.
I am also not exaggerating when I say that we make this once a month. In the summer, maybe even once a week. And I’m making it for dinner tonight.
Want to make pizza on the grill tonight (or some night soon) too?
Dough (we use my friend megan’s recipe and make it in the breadmaker)
2 1/4 teaspoons fast rising yeast
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons italian seasoning
1 1/2 cups warm water
3 1/2 cups flour
1 lb fresh mozzarella or goat cheese
Tomatoes, thinly sliced (or halved, if using grape/cherry tomatoes)
Fresh basil (the amount you use will depend on how much you like basil… we load up)
What’s your favorite ‘best of summer’ recipe?
