Easy Dinner Idea: Grilled Pizza with Basil, Mushrooms and Mini Pepperoni

99808-1

I recently saw a pizza grill pan last week in the window at The Cook Store, a wonderful neighborhood cooking store where I live. I thought to myself, “I want that!”. I received one for a present shortly thereafter, and I was very excited (thanks @jon_lewistwitter handle). I used it the other night when I was in a pinch as I was testing recipes for my upcoming book (Chipotle Pork Wraps with Slaw).  My kids didn’t want that for dinner so I threw this Grilled Pizza with Basil, Mushrooms and Mini Turkey Pepperoni together for them. I ended up eating both (of course) because it turned out so great!

Springy and Easy: Tomato-Basil and Four-Cheese Pizza

Okay, when I say this pizza is good, I mean it! Words can’t describe how delicious, easy and springy it is. It’s also so simple to prepare and can be prepared in under 30 minutes. I used Mama Marys for the pizza crust, but feel free to use your favorite crusts. The combination of fresh plum tomatoes, parsley and basil along with fresh mozzarella, fontina, Parmesan and feta create awesome flavors and textures. All I can say is delish!
