on the menu: three-cheese pizza

After an incredible dinner a few weeks ago at Pizzeta 211 I’ve been on the hunt for simple and delicious pizza recipes to make at home. This one in particular caught my eye and I can’t wait to give it a try this weekend!

Do you have any favorite pizza recipes? Bon appetit everyone!


1 1/2 ounces torn fresh mozzarella
1 ounce shredded part-skim mozzarella
1 ounce shredded fontina
1 tablespoon fresh parsley leaves
Pinch of red-pepper flakes
Basic Grilled Pizza Dough
Herb Oil


1. Heat it up: Set up a grill with heat source, coals or gas, on one side over medium-high. Clean and lightly oil hot grill.

2. Stretch it: On a lightly floured work surface, stretch or roll 1 piece basic grilled pizza dough or 4 ounces store-bought dough into a 10-inch-long oval or other desired shape. Brush one side lightly with herb oil or olive oil and season with coarse salt and ground pepper.

3. Grill it: Using your hands, place dough, oiled side down, directly over heat source. Brush dough with herb oil or olive oil and cook until underside is lightly charred and bubbles form all over top, 1 to 2 minutes. With tongs, flip dough and cook until lightly charred, 1 to 2 minutes. Slide dough to cooler side of grill.

4. Top it: Top with cheeses, parsley, and red-pepper flakes; cover grill. Cook until cheese melts and toppings are heated through, 2 to 5 minutes.

    Oh yum I love to combine cheeses, so even when making mac and cheese , do the unusual with a mix of cheeses maybe add in some crab meat, and a crumble topping!

    Pizetta 211 is so good! One of the best pizzas in the city. I can't quite master their recipe at home, but luckily I live close by…

  • Savvy in San Francisco says:

    Love Pizzetta211! You were literally 3 blocks from my house!

  • says:

    The family fave in our house is…
    light drizzle of olive oil, smear the top of the pizza with fig jelly, not a lot here and there but be sure to spread it, procuitto, diced figs, fresh mozzarella and at the very end a light sprinkle of balsamic vinegar…cook it well, it is so so good…

    This pizza looks fantastic! I'm a big fan of pizza. I work for Kamut International. I bet this pizza recipe would be equally as delicious if the crust was made with Kamut wheat flour too! Yum!

    Thank you for sharing.
