Schools out and it is finally GRILLING SEASON! Summer is one of my favorite times of year because it is all about being outdoors, being with family and grilling some amazing food. For most people, when it comes to grilling season, they think of hot dogs, hamburgers and steak. For many years now, in my home, the start of grilling season means Fire Grilled Three Cheese Margherita Pizza. This is one of my favorite start of summer traditions because not only is it CRAZY cheesy good, but it is so much fun to make! My kids love to customize their summer pizza with their favorite toppings. But for me— extra extra cheese and tomatoes make the perfect pizza.
Living in Utah, we are lucky to have AMAZING cheese that makes the pizza just right. I’m telling you, the mix of Cache Valley Provolone, Muenster and Mozzarella is AH-May-Zing so when you make it— those three cheese are a MUST! Trust me. At Cache Valley Creamery, they believe in providing wholesome, real and delicious cheese. Their inspiration comes from the people, values and beautiful landscape of the Cache Valley region, resulting in delicious cheese using only the highest-quality ingredients. Those high-quality ingredients make one mighty good Pizza. So come on and dust off your grills and kick off the summer with your family and friends and some Pizza!
