Grilled Naan Pizza with Prosciutto, Arugula and Cherry Tomatoes

I still can’t get over this new Radiohead album. I’ve listened to it maybe 2 million, 749 thousand, 628 times and it still reaches into my soul innards, gives me a massage, rips me to shreds, and then puts me in a hot air balloon and shoots me to a place where the phrase “new spring chicken” is smiled upon.

And no, I’m not on drugs.

It’s just what I needed to finish out my fantastic weekend at home. Fresh-cut peonies, Nag Champa, a newly-mulched garden, 80-degree fresh air, clean hair and this album (on repeat).

Oh, and the easiest grilled pizza ever.

Yes, yes, I think I will.

Grilled Naan Pizza with Prosciutto, Arugula and Cherry Tomatoes:

What it took for 2:

* 2 store-bought Naan breads

* 4 oz thinly sliced prosciutto, roughly torn

* 2 garlic cloves, minced

* 2 tsp fresh thyme

* 2 cups arugula

* 1/4 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

* 1 cup shredded mozzarella

* juice from 1/2 a lemon

* 1/4th cup extra virgin olive oil, plus 2 Tbs.

* freshly ground pepper

Preheat your grill to medium-high.

In a small bowl, combine 2 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil with the minced garlic and thyme. Brush one side of each naan crust with the flavored oil.

Sprinkle the mozzarella on top of the oil. Top with tomatoes and grill roughly 8 minutes, until the cheese melts.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the remaining 1/4 cup oil with the lemon juice. Toss the arugula into the oil.

When the pizza is done, remove it from the heat and top with torn prosciutto and arugula. Give a good grind of pepper to the pizza and top with fresh parmesan shavings!
