Healthy Summer Recipes for the Superstone® BBQ Pizza Stone

Posted by

Who else is craving a pizza night? I don’t know about you, but I am not craving just any pizza night, but a summer pizza night. Oh and before anyone asks, yes, there is a difference. Summer pizza is often topped with fresh and flavorful, yet seasonal ingredients.

One of my favorite things about summer pizzas is how healthy they can be! I mean, as much as I love a good old fashioned pizza night, there is just not much you can do to make pepperoni and cheese healthy (no offense to my pepperoni fans out there).

I love the idea that I can create a pizza with toppings of my choice (namely the ones fresh out of my garden), and with a crust of my choice! Trust me, my perfect perfect summer pizza is healthy and delicious.

Healthy Summer Pizzas

Whether you are making dinner for the family or inviting over some guests, you can rest assured that these healthy summer pizzas will be a hit. If you are on the hunt for a deliciously healthy summer pizza recipe that uses those flavorful and fresh ingredients that we were talking about earlier, we have you covered!

These are a couple of my favorite healthy summer pizza recipes:

Healthy Cauliflower Pizza Crust - Because I am gluten free and trying to maintain a lower carb diet, I am especially loving cauliflower crust these days! If you haven’t yet tried cauliflower crust, here is a delicious and easy recipe for you.

Margherita Pizza - When it comes to summer pizzas, I think my favorite just might be the classic Margherita Pizza. The only difference is that I make it on the cauliflower crust and then I love to top mine with fresh tomatoes from my garden. Oh my goodness, it is mouthwatering.

Curried Veggie Pizza - This one can also be served on the cauliflower crust and boy is it delicious! I love the flavors that burst through this one and since I have several vegetarian friends, this one is always a hit with them as well.

Zucchini Pizza - Is your garden overrun with zucchini yet? I don’t know about you, but every year my garden produces far more zucchini than my family could ever eat.

Because we don’t just want it steamed night after night, we like to try out new zucchini recipes as often as we can. When I first tried this zucchini pizza recipe out, the family was skeptical, but one bite and they loved it! They now ask for this one regularly.

I have also been known to throw extra toppings on my already yummy pizza, or even create my own sometimes. It's pizza night after all, time to go wild!

Superstone® BBQ Pizza Stone

Using the right tools makes all the difference in creating the best pizza. You have heard me say this before, but you absolutely have to use a pizza stone for cooking the best healthy summer pizza, or any pizza at all actually.

A pizza stone allows you to get just the right amount of crisp and tenderness on your pizza crust. Trust me, a pizza pan is not enough. If you love pizza, you need a pizza stone in your life.

Sure, you could put your pizza directly on the grill, if you want to make a mess and possibly burn your fingers in the process. But if you really want a delicious BBQ pizza, using a pizza stone for your barbeque pizza can literally make all the difference in how your pizza turns out. I may be biased, but this pizza stone is my absolute favorite:

Superstone® BBQ Pizza Stone-- with it's natural grooved surface for even heat distribution and a fire-proof finish, the BBQ Pizza Stone is perfect for making pizza in any conventional or convection oven, or on the grill, great for making pizza on the grill in the summertime or anytime!

Serve it Up

If you need pizza accessories for cutting and serving your pies, look no further–– Sassafras® has a wood-handled pizza cutter and a silicone-handled pizza cutter for all your baking needs.

Now that you have the best recipes and you know the best tools, it is time to sit down, relax and enjoy your delicious and healthy summer pizza!
