You can make this pizza on the grill or in the oven. Both turn out fabulously well.

  1. I am going to make a version of this — and share with friends this week. I hope you’ll agree it will still work just fine if i switch out the ricotta (which I don’t have) with a little garlicky creamy ‘Boursin’. I have all the rest — even the naan (in the freezer from a trip to Little India last month!)
    This recipe looks SO good. I hope my version measures up… Linda.. Will let u know!
    Love the idea of an egg on top for breakfast!!
