Pizza is one of our favorite food groups. It’s a staple item that can be eaten any time of year and is consistently delicious. No matter how you top it, if there’s a crispy crust and melted cheese, we’re in.
Which is why we’re so excited for this month’s recipe blog! We get to share our amazing flatbread pizza recipe that looks like it was created by a gourmet chef but really requires 7 ingredients and is ready in under 20 minutes. Oh yeah! So whether you’re looking for a quick meal or a fun way to spice up the menu at your next rooftop party, our Grilled Summer Flatbread Pizza is the perfect way to turn up the heat this month!
Grilled Summer Flatbread Pizza
Recipe serves 2 as a meal/3-4 as an appetizer
2 pieces naan (we used roasted garlic but plain works as well!)
1 ball Burrata cheese
1/2 cup fire roasted corn (you can buy frozen or char corn on the stove or grill)
1 bunch of asparagus
1 teaspoon fresh chopped parsley
handful of heirloom cherry tomatoes, sliced
arugula (for garnish)
Before you start cooking, you want to make sure that all of your ingredients are prepped, so we’ll start by blanching the asparagus! Bring a pot of water to a boil. Once boiling, add the asparagus and cook for 30-60 seconds. After 30-60 seconds, immediately remove from water and transfer to a bowl with ice water to stop the cooking process. Leave in ice water until you’re ready to use!
Once your asparagus is ready, start your pizza creation by grilling your naan. We used a cast iron grill pan but an outdoor grill is preferable! Grill the naan for two minutes on each side or until grill marks have been formed.
Next spread the burrata evenly on the naan and top with fire roasted corn, blanched asparagus, sliced heirloom cherry tomatoes and arugula. Broil for approximately 3 minutes or until naan begins to brown and the cheese gets bubbly. Or, as an alternative, you can place directly on the grill until the cheese gets bubbly. Once at your desired crispiness, remove from grill and let cool. Serve with your favorite chilled beverage and enjoy!
