Grilled Nectarine and Ricotta Naan Pizza

In the spirit of continuing to use our grill, we made this recipe this weekend. Everyone else seems to have success with grilled pizza dough, but we never have, so we opted for grilling naan instead. While the grill was lit, we also grilled the nectarine slices in the vegetable basket.

My goal was to keep this as simple as possible since I also made a side and a dessert (blogs to come for those recipes). The grilled infused a smokey flavor into the naan and helped to caramelize the outside of the nectarines. Working fruit into savory dishes is always an unexpected joy, especially here with the caramelized sugar coming through from the nectarine in an otherwise savory dish. We weren't sure how well these would be the next day, so we just split the four that we made.

Inspired by Brooklyn Supper.

-4 pieces of naan
-3 nectarines , sliced 1/4-inch thick
-8 ounces fresh ricotta cheese
-3 tablespoons basil chiffonade
-sea salt
-fresh ground black pepper

Brush the four pieces of naan with olive oil and grill for 2-3 minutes per side (or until grill marks form) while simultaneously grilling the sliced nectarines that you have also brushed with olive oil.

Once the naan is grilled, spread a generous amount of ricotta on each, top with the grilled nectarines (we sliced ours into smaller pieces to make it easier to eat). Then add the salt, pepper, and fresh basil.
