An End of Summer Celebration

Growing up, I adored the long, lazy days of summer. During my summer break from school, I could usually be found reading a book, sipping lemonade, playing catch, or hula-hooping. A couple of weeks before my summer break was due to end, I started dreading the thought of returning to school. Do you have kids who are sad about the prospect of going back to school? Consider taking your children’s minds off of school by treating the whole family at a favorite restaurant. While everyone is eating favorite foods, family members can reminisce about the amazing summers they’ve had. On this blog, you will discover the best types of restaurants to host an end of summer celebration at.


A Topping For Every Taste: Irresistible Additions For Your Pizza

Pizza is a beloved, versatile, and universally cherished dish that brings people together, ignites culinary creativity, and never fails to satisfy the soul. But what if people dared to step outside the realm of classic toppings and ventured into a world of unexpected, irresistible additions?

Take a look at some of the toppings below for a unique and memorable take on pizza.

Grilled Pineapple

You know what they say. There are two types of people in this world — those who love pineapple on their pizza and those who haven't tried it yet! Grilled pineapple, in particular, is a game-changer when it comes to jazzing up your pizza toppings. It's sweet, tangy, and oh-so-juicy, striking the perfect balance with savory ingredients and creating a flavor explosion that will leave you craving more.

When you grill this tropical fruit, its natural sugars caramelize, enhancing its sweetness and adding a subtle smokiness that is simply irresistible. Paired with salty ingredients like prosciutto or bacon and perhaps a sprinkle of fresh basil or cilantro, grilled pineapple creates a harmonious blend of flavors that makes every bite a delightful experience. 

So how do you go about adding this scrumptious ingredient to your pizza? It's easy! Simply slice your pineapple into thin wedges, toss them on the grill for a few minutes until they have those beautiful, appetizing grill marks, and then arrange them on your pizza before popping it in the oven. 

You'll end up with a heavenly, mouthwatering pizza that will have you and your friends coming back for seconds (or thirds!).

Artichoke Hearts

The artichoke heart is a delightful and often underrated addition to any pizza. These tender, earthy morsels bring a unique depth of flavor that will elevate your pizza from ordinary to extraordinary in no time. 

You might wonder why artichoke hearts are a fantastic choice for your pizza topping repertoire. First off, their delicate, slightly nutty taste adds a gourmet touch to any pizza, instantly transforming it into a culinary masterpiece. And don't forget about their versatility. Artichoke hearts pair beautifully with various ingredients, from tangy goat cheese and sun-dried tomatoes to fresh arugula and roasted garlic.

Adding artichoke hearts to your pizza is simple — just sprinkle a few pieces over the top of your desired toppings before baking your pizza. However, if you want to get really creative and take it up a notch, you can also sauté the artichoke hearts in a pan with some garlic, olive oil, and herbs for a few minutes before arranging them on your pizza. 

As the pizza cooks, the artichoke hearts will become even more tender and flavorful, creating a heavenly blend of textures and tastes.
