Chiffawhat?

The basil is coming in majestically and that means margherita pizza. Yum.

The key ingredient? Freshly snipped and chiffonaded ginormous basil (and homemade crust).

Stick that pizza on the grill, crack open a cold one, and enjoy the weekend.

Basil Fueled Pizza

Nothing says signs-of-summer like fresh basil (which is nothing at all like those sad little anemic hydroponic cones that get us through the winter) atop homemade grilled pizza. This one has flecks of fresh rosemary and minced garlic hiding in the crust. (Thanks, Digable Pizza — if you’re ever in Asheville, NC, check them out.)
