In celebration of National Pi Day (3.14) I’ve teamed up with Uncommon Goods to create my favorite pie.  A pizza pie!  And not just any pizza pie, but a Margherita Naan Pizza on the grill.  

You see Uncommon Goods has this amazing garden in a bag which just happens to grow everything you need for homemade pizza sauce (basil, tomatoes, oregano).  And because I’m not really someone who is known for their patience I decided to perfect my recipe before my garden began to grow.  Best decision ever.  Let’s just say I’ll be counting down the days till I can begin picking these ingredients fresh from my garden and grilling this pizza all summer long.   Happy 3.14!  truly, MKR
