Fresh Summer Pizzas
Invite friends over, scoop up some superfresh ingredients, and throw an easy pie party.
When preparing our first recipe, if you're not in the mood to light up the outdoor grill, cook the vegetables in a grill pan.
This rich and hearty pizza is inspired by Tastebud, a food stand at the Portland Farmers' Market. They use a mobile wood-burning oven to make the most creative pizza slices in the region. A leggy cousin of broccoli, the delicate purple florets and thin stems of purple sprouting broccoli make an ideal topping for grilled pizza.
Sweet caramelized onions form a creamy pizza “sauce.” Intense spices make chicken kicken’. Peppery arugula dressed with lemon vinaigrette complements this rich pizza. Toss 4 cups arugula, 1 cup rinsed and drained unsalted canned chickpeas, and 1 shaved carrot with 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, 1½ tablespoons lemon juice, and 1/8 teaspoon each of salt and pepper.
