French-Secret of the Week . . . Entertaining

May 23, 2012

The definition of entertaining in France is gathering with friends and lingering for hours at the dinner table having fun.

I love having people over, but more often than not I’ve found myself missing the party because I was still in the kitchen creating the event.

My parents entertained a lot when I was growing up and it always seemed to happen with little effort. Entertaining was so natural for them that I missed the fact that my mother prepared everything ahead of time. A lesson I’ve since learned!

Here’s what I’m planning for the weekend.

BBQ Pizza

I bought pizza dough at the market and followed the instructions to make small pizzas. As you can see mine was square . . . oh well.

I prepared my toppings, tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and grilled vegetables I had left over. You can use anything.

I brushed olive oil on the top of the dough and then placed the oiled side of the pizza dough down on the BBQ to let it grill. Once it has grilled so it’s nice and brown I turned the dough over on a board and brushed oil on the uncooked side and placed that side on the BBQ.

I added my toppings and covered the pizza with tin foil to keep the heat in and cook the toppings without burning the pizza.

If you don’t want to use the BBQ, the oven works really well and instead of the pizza dough try using flour tortillas.

I love thin crust pizza that I can let get really crispy. This is perfect!

Look how crispy the crust is!

I added goat cheese on top. Yum!

I’ve never tried these on the BBQ, but I don’t see why they wouldn’t work. Try it and let me know and send pictures!

It is the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, the first day of summer and the day before Father’s Day. Yes, it all happens on Saturday, June 20th—that’s a lot happening on one day. Just because we are still isolating doesn’t mean we can’t have a barbecue and celebrate. And good food is a must. I’m working. . .
