My husband LOVES making pizza – he grills it in the summer, bakes it in the winter, and comes up with a new flavor combo each time. In this monthly “guest post,” I’m going to sit back, relax, and maybe take the occasional photo while Jeff makes me a pizza and tells you about it. Here he is:
I love pizza. It is probably my favorite food. And, my favorite part about my favorite food is the crust. Just my little secret, the best way to get delicious crust is on a grill.
This week I had some good inspiration for getting that delicious crust I crave – I grilled a pizza with feta spread and cherry tomatoes. I got the idea a couple weeks ago when I decided to make some bruschetta I saw on the Barefoot Contessa.
My wife and I usually spend weekend mornings watching the Food Network because we get good cooking ideas while decompressing from a long week of work. On Saturday we saw Ina Garten making a meal for her husband Geoffrey. My wife saw these bruschetta that had a feta cheese spread and heirloom tomatoes marinated in olive oil, red wine vinegar, and shallots – she literally shrieked with joy and made me promise to make them for her.
Long story short, I made the bruschetta. They were so amazing I decided to make a pizza using similar toppings. I made the same feta cheese spread, substituted cherry tomatoes for heirloom, and threw in grilled chicken as a protein. I topped the pizza with arugula for some green color.
