Best Summer Pizza

Minimal prep and incredibly tasty, it’s the perfect fuss-free dinner. I think it would be perfect for a summer night in your backyard with friends. Delicious when cooked with a conventional oven or BBQ. Pair it with a Sauvignon Blanc from the new world (i.e. New Zealand or California).
