Grilled Pizza


GRILLED PIZZA
As with many other people, I’d have to agree that one of my favorite foods is the pizza. While I definitely still love a classic pepperoni pizza, I more so enjoy pizzas with unique tomato sauces, different types of cheeses, various types of meats and plenty of veggies and other toppings.

I don’t often make pizza at home; however, my fiance had the brilliant idea to combine two of my favorite things – grilling and pizza – for a fun idea for a lazy Sunday. The particular recipe he chose was Grilled Pizza with Hot Sausage, Grilled Pepper and Onions and Oregano Ricotta. This pizza pick was a great choice for many reasons; however, I especially loved it because it not only was a grilled pizza, but the ingredients on top of it – peppers and onions – were also grilled separately and then added on top of the dough later to add to the overall grilling experience.

What’s your favorite type of grilled pizza?

Cheers!

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes With Lemon Curd & Raspberries

One of my best friends came to visit me this past weekend. Like me, she loves to bake and cook. In fact, she is an inspiration to me and even taught me some new tricks with cooking (whether she knows it or not). For her visit, I wanted to make a fun breakfast that would encompass three traits: ease, few ingredients, and fruit (have to take advantage of fruit during the summer season). I happened to find a recipe for Lemon Ricotta Pancakes that looked enticing — especially because prior to this cooking experience, I’d never used ricotta in a “sweet” recipe or used lemon curd.

Step 1: Combine Dry Ingredients;
Combine Wet Ingrediens


Step 2: Combine Dry and Wet Ingredients


Step 3: Drop Batter Onto Greased Hot Griddle;
Flip When Golden Brown; Add Powdered Sugar
and Raspberries; Enjoy! 

Although these look “pretty” — they were tough to make. The batter does not hold together as easily as I would have liked. The best trick is to carefully watch the heat and make sure to master the perfect art of the quick-flip (I had a few fall apart…). But, nonetheless, these were absolutely delicious and the combination of fresh lemon and raspberries flavors provided a nice contrast to the boring egg-and-cheese-combo of the usual Sunday morning breakfasts.

Cheers!
