On Monday, I was saying how much I was going to miss summer and everything, but this week, the weather in DC has resembled fall and I absolutely LOVE fall weather. As much fun as sundresses and maxi dresses are to wear, I love the fall fashion scene. I love leggings, an oversized sweatshirt or dolman tee, and I love breathing in the crisp fall air. There’s just something about it! Honestly, I wish DC had California weather. The 50s in the morning and the 70s in the afternoon. To me, that’s the epitome of perfect weather and I would be happy with that kinda fall-ish weather year-round. If you could choose a season to have year-round, which would you choose? I honestly don’t know if I could choose. I love fall and spring equally and they both have their wardrobe perks. Ah, decisions, decisions.

You know what else causes my decision-making abilities to falter? Grilled pizza toppings. There’s just so many possibilities and I always feel like I’m standing in the produce aisle picking and choosing what I want to put on my grilled pizza that evening. Eenie, meenie, miney, mo is basically the game when it comes to toppings on grilled pizza :)

Last week, I made a video on how to grill pizza and then gave my basic grilled pizza dough recipe. This week, I’m giving you a classic pizza recipe with the simplest of ingredients. This classic pizza topping tastes even better on a grilled pizza!

    I completely agree with the state of DC weather lately! It’s been absolutely dreamy. I’m not totally ready to see summer go but man, this is getting me totally jazzed up for fall. In the meantime, this pizza… man, this pizza. It looks so delicious!

    Ahhh that cheese! Need pizza. I love fall too BUT I feel we got ripped off on having a decent summer :( And fall brings winter and I am not a fan of that sooooo big sigh.

  3. 08/07/2013 at 8:17 am

    The grill on the dough must give you the best flavor ever! Totally trying this.

  4. 08/07/2013 at 8:29 am

    Julie, I am with you about 70 degree days being ideal. And, like you, I adore fall. Your grilled pizza looks fabulous! Gorgeous, inviting styling and photography as well. Drool, drool! Thank you for sharing, m’ lady. We’re grilling pizza tonight!

    Welllll I live in Florida so I’ve got warm weather all year round, and I do have to admit I miss fall every so often. But I can’t handle cold, so 70 degrees is definitely ideal for me. Anything below that and I need a sweatshirt and a blanket! (I’m definitely a Floridian now even after only living here 2 years haha)

    Anyway, grilled pizza…yeah…delicious idea.

    You just know the way to my heart. Those tomatoes dripping with cheese are just killin’ me!

  34. 08/09/2013 at 3:56 pm

    This is such a perfect pizza for Summer time: light, with fresh tomato, marinara, basil! Lots of my favorite things in one pizza!

  35. 08/10/2013 at 4:06 pm

    I love the first photo! I`m loving all of these pizza recipes/ideas. :)

    I don`t think I can honestly pick a season to have year around. Even though, I do live in California and the weather doesn`t change TOO drastically…winter here is still really cold for me. I LOVE spring and fall fashion, so I know what you mean!

      Hi Kathy, no, sorry I don’t calculate nutritional info on my recipes because I simply just don’t have the time. However, there are nutritional calculators out there if you wish to do a google search for it.
