Two words: Nutella pizza. To put it mildly, I was smitten at first sight and in a full-blown love affair with the epic treat at first bite. It's life-changing, to say the least, so I'm shocked that it had never crossed my mind to slather gobs of Nutella on toast's most delicious kissing cousin.

Pizza on the barbecue makes a great Summer meal: it's fast and easily customizable to your guests — and, let's be honest, who doesn't love pizza fresh off the grill? So after your guests have finished their savory pizza pie, satisfy everyone's sweet tooth with a strawberry and chocolate pizza à la mode.

Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and watch everyone gobble up this delicious treat. If you're feeling even more adventurous, let your guests select their topping like peaches, nectarines, or other berries, and try Nutella or other varieties of chocolate chips for your pizza topping.

Of the less-than-conventional foods to throw on the grill, my favorite is probably pizza. I love a luscious, melted pie in any form, but there's something about the crunch and char of the crust from the grill that makes barbecued pizza irresistible. Thinking of throwing a pizza on your grates for the first time? Here are a few tips for grilled pizza pizzazz.
- Make sure your grill is hot! When it comes to pizza crust, the higher the temperature of your grill, the more blistery and chewably crispy your pizza will be. If you don't have a thermometer on your grill, then check the heat using the "Mississippi" test: hold your hand three inches over the grill grates, and start counting, "One Mississippi, two Mississippi, three Mississippi," and so on. If you can only count to two or three before the force of the heat makes you pull back your hands, then you know you've got your grill at 600ºF or higher.

Recently, we had the chance to break bread with Chef Joanne Weir, from Joanne Weir's Cooking Class, and talk all about Mediterranean ingredients and cooking styles. One of the dishes that she taught us how to make was a Spanish coca, or pizza. The toppings were simple but satisfying: wilted chard with sweet raisins and walnuts.
The result was light and satisfying, with a great combination of sweet and salty flavors. The crunchy texture of the walnuts complemented the wilted greens really well, which served as a great reminder to use this nutritious nut more often.
The recipe includes a simple dough that requires about one hour of rising time, but feel free to use your favorite store-bought pizza dough to make life easier on yourself. Another option is to make the dough ahead of time, freeze it, then take it out to thaw the morning that you plan to make your coca.
