Grilled Cherry & Brie Pizza

Time to get grilling!  These Naan crusted pizza’s have sweet cherries, creamy brie and smoky poblano peppers!

An easy, quick and delicious way to enjoy pizza!

Naan bread is the crust for this tasty pizza.  It’s then topped with creamy brie, fresh , tart cherries and crisp poblano peppers!  www.lemonsforlulu.com

Each time I get ready to grill our dinner, I say a silent prayer that this will be the day the grill won’t start.  Our grill is over 12 years old.  It is tired, faded, crusty, peeling and overly charred.  It digusts me and scares me all at the same time.  I have this irrational notion that the crusty blackness is slowly poisoning our food one black fleck at a time.  I hate our grill.

I went to start the grill just the other day for some kabobs when I discovered the grill would not light.  I turned the gas off and on.  I clicked the switch and turned the knobs countless times but the darn thing would not start.  A crooked smile started to form at the corners of my mouth as I thought to myself “this is the day.”  I thought my prayers had finally been answered.  I skipped into the house and announced my predicament to my husband.  I naturally assumed he’d partake in my excitement and that at any moment, we’d be off to the store to look for a new grill.

Imagine my disappointment when my husband told me that after inspecting the dated grill, he discovered the gas tank was empty.  And just like that, my dreams of a gleaming new grill were hopelessly shattered.  Darn him and his practicality, his frugality and his common sense.

Grilled Brie & Cherry Pizza 3

I have a confession.  With Father’s Day approaching, everywhere you look grills are on sale.  I am tempted to run out and purchase a new one under the pretense that a shiny new grill is exactly what my husband (i.e. me) has always wanted!  Since I naturally feel guilty about everything, I am deciding against this plan.  Instead I will grill the crap out of our dinners in the coming weeks in the hopes that all that knob turning and starter clicking will eventually wear out that rickety grill.

I grilled up these simple pizzas in my ashen grill.  The grill might be ugly but these pizzas were divine!  The earthy naan bread makes the perfect crust for this pizza that is topped with mild and creamy brie, tart red cherries and smoky poblano peppers.  So many flavors and textures make this pizza unforgettable and crave worthy.  I drizzled a spoonful of balsamic vinegar on our grilled pizzas.  You could leave that out if you prefer.  The poblanos had a bit of bite to them, you could sautee them prior to grilling or even roast them.  This pizza made an excellent summer meal, but would be an impressive appetizer as well.

I’ll be making these pizzas over and over again.  Or at least until I’ve worn out the grill!

  1. Oooh this looks delicious! I love grilled pizza, I’ll have to try this variation sometime soon. Love the brie + cherry combo, that looks awesome! :)

  2. OMG Tanya! These pizzas are brilliant! And so is the balsamic vinegar. Yesssss. Also I need to know what the hell kind of grill you have that lasted 12 years. That’s like a miracle grill! Go buy yourself one, lady. You could get through 2 summers with $150 lol. Just look at it as a necessary job expense. Because the rest of us might perish without your pretty grilled pizzas.

  3. Discovered your blog on Tasty Kitchen and looking forward to following you! This pizza looks absolutely amazing, can’t wait to try. Very creative and great use of ingredients :)

    Happy Blogging!

  4. I’m dying. Go get the grill he would totally do it if it were you! LOL! These delicious babies deserve to cook on a shiny new grill!

  5. […] as often as possible!  The mess stays on the grill and my kitchen stays clean!  As I mentioned here, I’m on a grilling spree!  It’s been a while since I’ve made kabobs, I was due.  I’ve […]

  6. Thankfully, our old Weber did die about a year ago and I was rewarded with a new one. At least it’s money well-spent as we/I use it ALL the time! These pizzas do look divine! And they are simple to throw together… also a plus. Pinned!

    • I’m thinking I’d buy another Weber! Thank you Jill!

  7. I think you can totally justify getting “him” a new grill for Father’s Day. After all, hasn’t he ever gotten “you” lingerie? It’s the same thing! :)

    This pizza looks so unique and tasty, I’ll have to try it soon, thanks!

    • Thank you! You are right! I’m totally treating this “father” to a new grill!

  8. This pizza sounds amazing. There’s no way I would have come up with this combo on my own but I can’t wait to try it out. I can’t eat gluten so I’ll have to switch out the naan for a gluten free crust but I’m sure t will be just as delicious.

    • I hope you do try it, was such a good pizza!
