This summertime pizza post is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Rhodes Bake’n’Serv. The opinions and text are all mine.
Grilled caprese pizza that tastes like summertime! The dough is grilled and drizzled with a balsamic glaze, then topped with spicy arugula, seasoned fresh tomatoes and fresh mozzarella cheese. Every bite is bright and happy.

It’s grilling season and this pizza is on the menu!
Not too heavy, not too light: this is the perfect summertime dish!
Of note: this recipe is protein free, but is often served as the full meal at our home (meatless Monday anyone?). Occasionally we will add chicken, prosciutto, or beef to the mix. The chicken compliments the dish best in my opinion.
Rhodes Bake N Serve White Bread
Using pre-made frozen bread dough from Rhodes Bake n Serv, this pizza is incredibly simple to make.
Rhodes bread can defrost and rise on the countertop quickly. However, Rhodes also has an overnight defrost and rise method that makes these pizzas an easy prep-the-night-before option!
If you love Rhodes© Bake-N-Serve as much as I do, then you’re in luck today! I’ve been cooking with Rhodes© Bake-N-Serve since I was a kid and I’ve been working with the company since I started recipe blogging. Check out these recipes too:
- French Dip Sliders (My whole family goes NUTSO over these!!!)
- Brown Butter and Sage Breadsticks (don’t over-rise and they’re perfection in a bite!)
- Raspberry Lemon Rolls (ohmigosh y’all these are divine!!!)
- Eggnog Cinnamon Rolls (These are gorgeous and so yummy and taste like Christmas!)
- And MORE!!!
For this pizza we use fresh mozzarella pearls. I smash them right before placing them on the pizza. This makes it so no bites are over-cheesed. It also allows their juice to drip onto the spicy arugula, dressing it in a way.
