80 degrees a few times this week! The weather reminds me it has actually been spring for three weeks, near-freezing temperature for my 10-K last Saturday be damned. That means garden parties in our courtyard. Two summers ago, we invited a bunch of friends over for Darcy’s birthday and cooked pizzas outside, with an assembly line of toppings next to a little tailgate grill. Thank you to our friend Zeina for posting these photos that I have been meaning to write up. You can see pizza symmetry is not my strong suit. Aesthetics aside, the pizza came out great, with a chewy, charred crust and a deep smoky flavor. Here are the recipes — cannot wait to get back at the grill within a few weeks.
Makes two 12 inch pizzas with a very thin crust — serves 4 people as a meal, at least 8 as an appetizer
