Spicy Mediterranean Pizzas
We spent some quality time at our backyard grill and whipped up some quick and easy individual pizzas. These pizzas are a fun way to serve up a fast dinner, and they allow each diner to individualize their pie to their own taste. Here’s what we used to make ours, but have fun with it and experiment with different toppings and herbs and spices!
Pick Your Crust
We used Stonefire Whole Grain Naan Bread. You could also use other flavors of naan bread, pitas or tortillas.
Make The Sauc
We combined 1 (8 oz.) can Full Circle organic tomato sauce, 1 Tbsp. Trader Joe’s tomato paste, a drizzle of Trader Joe’s extra virgin olive oil, a squirt of organic agave nectar, 1 packet Splenda and a few pinches of sea salt. You can personalize your sauce by using different sweeteners such as regular sugar or honey, or spice it up with some red pepper flakes!
We topped our pizzas with Boar’s Head feta cheese, Italian cheese blend, Trader Joe’s sliced black olives, Boar’s Head Turkey Pepperoni, and a teaspoon each of Lighthouse freeze-dried Italian herb blend, red onions and jalapeños. Here’s where each diner can really personalize their pie by making it spicier by adding more jalapeños, or choosing a different meat or cheese.
Choose Some Toppings
This part is simple – just throw them on the grill over indirect heat until the cheese is melted and the edges of the Naan bread get crisp. Serve immediately, but don’t burn your mouth on all the hot melted cheese!
While this recipe is perfect for a quick weeknight meal, it’s also great for family get-togethers and backyard barbecues with friends. Everybody will have a great time getting to assemble their own pizza, and the grilling couldn’t be easier!
