Grilling Rooftop Pies
Week two of our CSA ingredients and a couple trips to Greenpoint Meat + Cheese gave us a delicious idea: pizza, rooftop style. Bayley Hazen Blue cheese from Jasper Hill Farm, spicy Italian meat, figs, plenty of veg and a charcoal grill with cherry wood chips was all we needed to get the smoky job done. Here’s how we put it all together:
Pizza 1: Blue cheese, tomato, spinach, olive oil and garlic scapes.
Pizza 2: Spicy meat, blue cheese, basil and olive oil.
Pizza 3: Figs, fresh tamarind, basil, blue cheese, olive oil with spicy meat on half.
Pizza 4: Basil, tomato, blue cheese, garlic scapes and olive oil.
The fudge-like texture of the Bayley Hazen blue made it easy to crumble over the pies, and the grassy taste mized well with the meat and vegetables. We grilled so much deliciousness that it was hard to pick a favorite, but pizzas 2 and 4 got my vote. Need to put this down to go enjoy more, thanks to Greenpoint Meat + Cheese for the good stuff!
