This One is For My Homies

I could wax on poetic about how I love the renewal that Spring brings to Northern Michigan... warmer days, evenings spent on the porch, digging in the garden, but when it comes down to it what I really love is the new crop of goodies appearing at the markets and right in our backyard. This meal would not have been possible without the generosity of my good friend Sarah who graced us with two fat morel mushrooms to top our tasty pizzas. Pair that with some local asparagus fried in butter and you have heaven on homemade dough!

Grilled Pizza
1 recipe pizza dough
goat cheese
fresh mozzarella
olive oil
salt and pepper

To be honest, this isn't really a recipe, but I will say that if you want to find success when grilling pizza, you must follow my friend Clay's words of wisdom. He grills one side of the dough (brushed with olive oil) for a couple minutes, removes the pizza from the grill to place toppings on the grilled side and then returns it to the grill to finish the cooking. You really can't go wrong when Clay is in your corner!


  1. Sarah is such a blessing to our family!!! The pizza looks fantastic with fresh morels and local asparagus!!! Let's hope next years morel crop produces out in our neck of the woods!
