As much as I love summer, I don’t love this 90-degree heat + 100% humidity. With the oppressive heat outside, I do not want to turn on my oven inside AT ALL. So when a pizza craving hit, I knew that I needed to be a little creative.
I grabbed all of summer’s finest ingredients and heated up the grill!
Yes, I grilled pizza.
And it was awesome.
One of my favorite pizzas is the Fig + Proscuitto Pizza. It is a pizza crust slathered in fig preserves, topped with mozzarella, and accented with proscuitto – it is baked until crispy and bubbly and then topped with a bunch of fresh arugula. I love the contrasts between sweet and salty, hot and cold. But I decided to put a spin on the traditional and used fresh peaches instead of the figs.
Bonus? The pizza literally takes 10 minutes to grill, which means minimal heat/humidity exposure and maximum dinner happiness.
