pizza on the grill

I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend. We spent time soaking up the gorgeous weather this weekend and enjoyed what just might be one of our last nice weekends in the PNW.

We took a family trip to the Bellingham Farmer’s Market on Saturday morning and got a few items to compliment the bounty of tomatoes that have been growing in our garden to make margherita pizzas for dinner. Fresh basil and Samish Bay Mozzarella cheese were paired with a homemade crust and LOTS of tomatoes for this delicious dinner. We cooked down our cherry tomatoes to make a tomato sauce. We added a bit of sugar and a few cloves of fresh garlic (also from our garden) to round out the flavors in the sauce. I could have eaten it by the spoonful!

We used our pizza stone on the grill to bake the pizzas. It worked great to get that bubbly crust with just a bit of char. It was a bit of Via Tribunali via our backyard grill. Paired with a glass of red wine and salad made from more of our backyard veggies it was a perfect evening.

The finished product.

Our tasty meal.

It was almost a date...and then this one woke up...such is life.

We might have a pizza lover on our hands.

We hated it. Soon after this picture was taken the last piece was eaten.

...and we're done.

Really done. A drop of water hit the stone while it was hot and it cracked.

What were you up to this weekend? We hope you enjoyed your last days of summer!

    Rachel – I must say, you wrote an excellent article on your weekend and pizza cooking. The food looked great. Sorry it ended with a broken pizza stone and a crying Isla. I think she was just bummed because BJ ate the last piece of pizza.

    My first pizza stone broke, also. Tried another one and it always smelled funny….
    But the food looked and sounded great, and pics are great. Babies get to have an emotion one moment and switch to the opposite in a split second, and you captured that! Looks fun! Becky

    I love your articles. It is so fun to see what your family is doing. The pizza looked really good. Isla is really growing, what a beautiful little girl. Love, Grandma

    Great Post! I like the crying picture of Isla! This was all Rachel’s idea and it was great to use our homegrown tomatoes and ingredients from the farmers market!
