It’s funny how dishes pair with the seasons. Comfort food feeds the soul during dark, cold winter days. Soup excites the taste buds for flavors of fall. Light meals like salads seem to make their appearance in spring. Barbeque literally spells summer. Many recipes are released during certain parts of the year to compliment the upcoming season, and while I am a huge fan of participating in this trend, I think pizza can be fashioned to be the style in any season.
In winter, I dress up pizzas with root vegetables and hearty tomato sauces. Spring pizzas follow the trend of Hawaiian style or Margherita pizza. This elk steak flatbread pizza pairs perfectly with summer. Grilling the crust prior to topping gives it a crusty shell and soft, chewy inside. The arugula is slightly spicy and refreshing. Caramelized onions and reduced balsamic vinegar give a savory and sweet profile to each slice. But the best part of this elk steak pizza is the sliced elk steak, which is the star of the show.
