Grilled Summer Fruit Pizza

As I am writing this, the thermometer in our house is reading 90 degrees.  In my house.  No, not outside in the sun.  In my living room.  When we bought this great mid-century modern home, with the high-peaked ceilings, sun-soaked living room and custom windows, we didn’t think about the hot, humid New York summers. Or the fact that air conditioning units don’t fit in those custom windows.  Or central air can’t be installed in the (weird) walls. That may have been because we bought the house in March, on a beautiful crisp day.  Not feeling too crisp right about now.

Since it is so hot in my house (as evidenced by the three cold showers I took today), we have been trying to not cook anything inside, and this includes dessert. We made this dessert pizza on the Fourth of July, and it was the perfect ending to a summer meal.
