This crust takes 5 minutes to mix and 4 minutes to grill – then throw on tomato, basil, mozzarella and you’ve got summer on the plate! ~ by Serena Ball, MS, RD
Sometimes, a recipe turns out just too yummy…and is too easy…and is perfect for a fleeting seasonal fruit…that I just have to do a quick share.
This Simple Tomato Basil Grilled Pizza recipe was literally whipped up while the kids were taking showers after a pool playdate. And it was even quicker than the homemade quick-dough pizza I usually make – because:
- They were grilled instead of baked
- The four individual pizzas took less time to cook than one large pizza
And can you go wrong with the tomato, basil, mozzarella combo? Never! In fact, we really like this Caprese combo – be it Cherry Caprese Panzanella Salad, Grilled Potato Zucchini Caprese Salad or even in this version of Caprese Pizza from Cooking Light using a few more ingredients on top – but with refrigerated fresh pizza dough.
So as I was considering what to top my pizzas as they grilled, it was the simplest of flavors that won out: The tomatoes sitting on my counter, the basil growing out back, and the mozzarella ball in the fridge. Because SIMPLE is what summer is all about…including eating these pizzas in our pajamas (to simplify the bedtime routine,) eating outside where the birds get the crumbs (to simplify clean-up,) and in bare feet (because we’re soaking up every bit of summer around here!)
Have you made anything with tomato, basil and mozzarella yet this summer?
