This crowd-pleasing white pizza is lightly charred on the grill and topped with a garlicky pistachio pesto and four cheeses: mozzarella, Fontina, provolone and scamorza (a cow-milk cheese that’s like a dry mozzarella). If scamorza isn’t available, double the amount of mozzarella. Slideshow: Fantastic Pizza Recipes

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a food processor, pulse the pistachios and garlic until minced. Add the arugula, basil and crushed red pepper and pulse until minced. With the machine on, gradually add the 1/2 cup of oil until incorporated. Add the Parmigiano and pulse to combine. Season the pesto with salt and black pepper.

Step 2    

Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. In a bowl, toss the mozzarella with the Fontina, provolone and scamorza.

Step 3    

Divide the dough into 4 pieces. On a lightly floured work surface, roll or stretch each dough piece to a 10-inch oval, 1/8 inch thick. Brush the dough with oil. Grill each pizza over moderately high heat, turning once, until lightly charred on both sides and puffed, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a work surface. Spread one-fourth of the pesto on top and sprinkle with the cheeses. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 4    

Working in batches if necessary, grill the pizzas over moderately low heat, covered, until the cheese is just melted, about 5 minutes. Cut the pizzas into strips and serve hot.
