One of the things I quickly realized during our last (first!) Italy vacation was the beauty of food’s simplicity. Quality ingredients can go a loooong way, and don’t need to be bogged down with superfluous oils and seasonings. If you use fresh ingredients, the natural taste of the food can truly shine. I learned a lot about the types of food I enjoy on that trip (in Italy this would be: all the foods) and new ways to enjoy and prepare certain dishes.
For example: pizza.
Nothing in the world will be as good as REAL Italian pizza, but I did learn that it’s more delicious at home with high-quality and simple ingredients.
Better: with a cracked egg on top.
Best: one pizza per person, no sharing allowed
I noticed that fellow diners would look at us kinda funny if we ordered a pizza to SHARE. (<– or maybe that was in my brain?) I guess you get your own pizza and nicely eat it with a fork and knife like a civilized person. My face plant probably alarmed some people.
Yesterday, the weather was beautiful, we knew we’d be enjoying some pizzas, and I cooked them on the grill. I suddenly decided I want to learn how to grill, so I’ve been all about testing the proverbial waters. Thank goodness the Pilot has been here to literally put out the fires.
(watch out now!)
Here’s the recipe: quick, simple and delicious for spring dinners and gatherings.
