Pizza doesn’t have to mean a greasy slice covered in cheese and pepperoni. This pizza has fresh mozzarella, prosciutto for some salty goodness, figs for a little sweetness, and arugula for a peppery finish. You will need a pizza stone to make this recipe, but once you’ve got one, the pizza world is your oyster. Hey – oysters on pizza. Now there’s an idea. Just be sure to cook them properly.


Cedar-Planked Salmon

Many people shy away from grilling fish. “It cooks too fast, and it sticks to the grates,” they say. That’s why this recipe for Cedar-Planked Salmon is practically foolproof. You won’t have to worry about the salmon sticking or falling apart. The cedar also imparts some amazing flavor and compliments the sun-dried tomatoes and fresh parsley in this dish. Pro tip: Soak the cedar plank in water for four hours before grilling.


Cheesy Chorizo Zucchini Boats

Grilled Chicken

Don’t forget topping salads with it! This recipe has a unique blend of flavors, which include cumin, paprika, garlic and onion powder, and coriander. Olive oil keeps the chicken from sticking and helps you develop some professional looking grill marks. Don’t forget to let the chicken rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing it. It’ll help it stay juicy.
