on summertime grilled pizza...

Summer time is upon us! With school and how busy I have been since February and will be until December, quick, easy yet healthy meals are what I focus on. Now that the nice weather is here I utilize the grill outside as much as I can. One of my favorite things to cook on the grill is pizza! So yummy. There's something about the end result that always makes us go back for seconds! 

It's all about the dough. Focaccia pizza dough is the best and is always my number one chose when making pizza at home. It just makes the pizza that much better! I usually prefer to make homemade dough (love this recipe) but I don't always have time (school night blues) so I just use one of Trader Joe's Focaccia doughs that I always keep on hand. I HIGHLY recommend it. 

The next part is really up to your imagination. It's my favorite part! I always play around with my pizza toppings. One of our usual go-to's are spinach, artichoke, mushroom, tomato with mozzarella cheese. My stomach has a hard time handling tomato sauce so usually I just drizzle some balsamic vinaigrette. 
This time I had some asparagus that I needed to use so I sautéed it up with some red onion and added spinach with tomatoes. A little cheese and the balsamic vinaigrette and there you have it. Super simple yet incredible flavor.
