It’s no secret that my favorite food is pizza. And when it comes to pizza, I don’t discriminate. I’ve never had a bite of pizza that I didn’t think tasted delicious. I love thin crust, deep dish, homemade with wheat crust, freezer pizza (even, though I should be embarrassed to admit, the one baked hours ago and sitting on Al and Andie’s counter top,) calzones, pizza bread, you name it. Basically any carb form plus cheese, sauce and toppings and I’m game. Al and I even made a pretty bomb cauliflower crust pizza not too long ago and we loved that too!
Today’s version of pizza is a perfect summertime rendition. Al and I grilled up these Naan Pizzas on our grill at the lake house to feed all our friends. We had fun making them and choosing different toppings for each one, and I think everyone else had fun eating them too! They also felt light and not greasy..something you can eat in your bathing suit 🙂
The prep for these was really easy and they’re customizable. Use whatever toppings you like. Since I was the head chef here, we had veggie pizzas, which is always my choice. (Sorry boutcha meat lovers!) Al and I chopped up some yellow and orange bell peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, basil, arugula, and red onion. We used a blend of shredded asiago cheese, mozzarella, and parmesan. We also added red chili flakes to some of the pizzas to add some heat. For the sauce, we mixed it up and made some of the pizzas using standard pizza sauce, and on others we painted on an olive oil and garlic mixture. Here’s our prep set up outside by the grill:
Then, the troops came running and the slices of pizza were disappearing off the cutting board almost as fast as we could cut it! I’m surprised I got them to pause long enough for me to snap this quick photo. We’ll definitely be adding these quick and easy pizzas into our lake house food rotation. Try em out, you won’t be disappointed!
