– three things I love to do. Come with!
One of my favorite summer activities is cooking outside. The kitchen’s too hot to hang out anyway, the backyard smells of basil, and you’ve got no worries about spills.
This week, I had the opportunity to cook pizzas on a wood-fired grill at a friend’s home in Napa Valley. While it’s not quite a brick pizza oven, an open grill closely approximates the high heat needed to make great pizza crust. It’s also an incredibly visual cooking method that draws people in, rather than shutting them out with a closed oven door.
This pizza includes prosciutto, goat cheese, figs, caramelized onions and arugula.
Here’s to summer!
