The last day of summer is here and we're celebrating in style with grilled pizza!

We love pizza and have it often.  I've used so many different bases for pizzas such as Zucchini and Sausage Flatbread Pizza, The BEST Pizza Dough, and this French Bread Pizza..but today we are going to use Naan bread, AND we are going to fire up the grill while we still can!

Naan is an Indian style flatbread and is the perfect base for a quick pizza.  It's sturdy enough to hold up against hearty toppings yet soft enough for a nice bite.

It's all about the GRILLED VEGGIES!  Yes, today's pizza is bursting with flavors from the addition of grilled vegetables for the toppings.  Just forage in your frig for your favorite veggies that will hold up on the grill and get going.  We used red onion, zucchini, tomatoes, and summer squash.

Grilling brings on the FLAVOR!  When grilling vegetables make sure to douse them in oil and season them with a little Italian herbs for extra flavor.  Get some good grill marks on your veggies too, cause that's where the flavor is!

Show your pizza a little love!  Top your naan bread with your favorite pizza sauce, then sprinkle on a seasoning mix to give it some more flavor.  Pile on the grilled and chopped veggies then add a little Parmesan cheese.  Pop it back on the grill to heat it all up then add a sprinkle of fresh basil and a douse of good olive oil!

Try this recipe out this weekend while the weather still allow for grilling.  You will be surprised by how easy this is to make, but you won't be surprised at how GOOD it tastes!

Enjoy!





Grilled Veggie Naan Pizza

serves 1

1 medium sized Naan flatbread (I used Stonefire's)
1 zucchini, sliced into planks
1 summer squash, sliced into planks
1 tomato sliced
1 red onion, sliced and left in whole slices
olive oil
1 tsp Italian seasoning
pizza sauce
pizza seasoning
shaved Parmesan cheese
basil, chopped

Preheat your grill over medium heat.  Drizzle olive oil on the sliced vegetables, both sides, and sprinkle with the Italian seasoning.  Place on grill and cook until tender, about 5 minutes.  Turning when necessary.

Remove vegetables to a cutting board and chop into bite sized pieces.  Set aside.

To assemble pizza take your Naan flatbread and add some pizza sauce to the bottom.  Sprinkle with some pizza seasoning.  Add your grilled, chopped vegetables and place back on the grill.  Cook, covered, for about 7-8 minutes until warmed through.  Remove and sprinkle with Parmesan, douse with a little olive oil, and sprinkle chopped basil on top.  Cut and serve.

Mediterranean Chicken Kabobs


Yum

Mediterranean Chicken Kabobs are a summer treat!  Bursting with flavors your crave for the rest of the summer! - Slice of Southern

Summer, oh Summer, don't leave me yet.....!

I'm in love with summer and I'm going to grill until the rain comes!  Even though the evenings are shorter now I still find that we love to grill and eat al fresco every chance we get.

Our go to meal this summer has been this extremely tasty grilled chicken dish, but MGG's love of kabobs is the inspiration for today's recipe.  When shopping for food the other day he said "Let's make chicken kabobs, but not Persian ones, something with a different flair."  Taking that lead I knew that we had enough vegetables to make a Mediterranean meal, so we grabbed some chicken and a lemon and off we went.

Mediterranean Chicken Kabobs

What are kabobs?  They are varieties of meat that are cooked on skewers or a spit.  Typically from the middle east, but many countries have a version of a kabob (kebab).  They've been adapted in American to fit any type of meat and vegetable mix with any flavor profile.  I've made Jamaican Jerk Chicken Kabobs, Lemon Garlic Beef Kabobs, Moorish Pork Kabobs, and Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs to name a few.  Anything goes!

It's all about the flavor! 



Mediterranean Chicken Kabobs

serves 4

2 tsp Spanish paprika
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried oregano
4 clove minced garlic
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup lemon juice - 1 lemon
1/2 cup blood orange olive oil
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes
1 large zucchini, halved and cut into large chunks
1 large yellow squash, halved and cut into large chunks

wooden skewers


In a re-sealable bag add the cubed chicken along with the spices, salt and pepper to taste, garlic, lemon juice and olive oil. Toss to coat. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.


If using wooden skewers place them in water and soak for 30 minutes.


Place sliced vegetables in a medium bowl and toss with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.


Pre-heat a gas grill to medium heat. Thread the chicken cubes, zucchini, and yellow squash onto wood skewers. 

Lightly oil the grill grate. Place the kabobs on the grate and cover, turning occasionally for 12-15 minutes, or until the chicken juices run clear. Remove and serve immediately.
