Summer and the thrill and ease of eating outside means that we should all be grilling as much as possible. So to help make that possible we're sharing these super-easy chicken and pesto flatbreads. They start with my favorite shortcut, pre-made naan bread, and get topped with basil pesto, grilled chicken breast, and corn. Make these for a quick weeknight dinner or appetizer from the grill and count on them to be done in as little as 15 minutes.

The 5 Best Pizza Places in Philly, According to a Local — Summer Vacations for Food-Lovers

Philly is known for its gooey cheesesteaks and soft pretzels, but we've been known to sling a mean pizza pie, too. Within our city limits you'll encounter a range of styles, from wood-fired Neapolitan-style pizzas to Brooklyn-style thick-crust pizzas.

My husband, who was born and raised in Philly, insists that no roundup of Philly's best pizza places would be complete without mentioning two legendary pizza institutions: Tacconelli's Pizzeria, a brick-oven pizzeria in the Port Richmond neighborhood, and South Street's Lorenzo & Sons, where $3.50 gets you a humungous, no-frills New York-style slice of cheese pizza served on two paper plates.

While many adore these old-school places, there's no comparing them to the newer pizza restaurants on the scene, at least in my humble opinion. Not only do these new pizzerias have serious accolades, but each place either honors classic pizza traditions or pushes the envelope, elevating the art of the pie.

Here are five places that are currently making the most transcendent, best-reviewed pizzas in Philly.

Why Pizza Is Actually the Best Wedding Gift — The Happy Ever After Wedding Registry

Earlier this year, Domino's launched a wedding registry website — something entirely separate from its main website — allowing couples to register for pizzas for the wedding night, post-honeymoon life, and other special packages. The idea is being marketed as "the first registry for couples who prefer delicious melty cheese to crystal gravy boats." The internet kind of exploded over the silliness. Would couples seriously register for pizza? Turns out, the answer to that question is yes: Tons of registries have been created since the site launched in February. (Company reps were tight-lipped when we asked them to tell us exactly how many.)

And for good reason! You see, pizza is an excellent wedding gift. Here's why you should consider registering for pizza or, if you're a guest, gifting a cheesy pie.

Recipe: French Bread Pesto Chicken Pizza — Quick and Easy Weeknight Dinner Recipes

When I was a kid, I spent long days at our community pool, swimming, hanging with friends, and, of course, eating. I still crave some of the foods I ate from the concession stand, particularly whole dill pickles and French bread pizza (but not at the same time!). Some of my tastes have changed in the decades that have passed, and microwaveable French bread pizza just doesn't do it for me anymore. So I created this pesto and chicken version with a helping hand from a trip to the grocery store to meet me right where I'm at.
