With my family's Armenian background, I grew up surrounded by great cooks. Since Armenian food is time-consuming and labor-intensive, cooking for any party started weeks in advanced. I learned to cook from my mom but have revamped many of her dishes to make them healthier, simpler and quicker, like this version of Armenian Pizza. —Jean L. Ecos, Hartland, Wisconsin

Tired of pepperoni pizza? When we have the grill going, we like to make this recipe. The chewy from-scratch crust is topped with pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, asparagus and ham. We love pizza and when it's made on the grill, it's even better.

Meet the Cook: Pizza is such a favorite at our house I make it at least once a week. When the heat and humidity are up there, though, the last thing that I want to do is turn on the oven. So I just move my recipe to the grill - the barbecue flavor mingling with the cheese tastes delicious.
Our family of pizza-lovers includes my husband, a daughter who's 10 and a son who's 7.
