    With the summer months flying by, we're constantly thinking about the grill and what else we can cook on it. And that's how we arrived at grilled pizza. There's really nothing better, because grilled pizza epitomizes pretty much everything we love about grilling.

    Like that smoky, charred flavor a grill gives to foods. That flavor is all the more appreciated when applied to a pizza's crust, and it helps you obtain that authentic, wood-fired pizza flavor you think you can only get at restaurants. Or the fact that a grill keeps us out of our hot kitchens and allows us to cook outside. No one likes to make a pizza in a hot oven during the summer, and a grill makes it possible for you to avoid cranking it up to 450 degrees. Last but not least - it's easy. Just like how you can throw a burger on the grill and have it ready in minutes, a pizza on the grill is just as simple and fast, so what's not to love about that?

  • Food52 Guest Editor Pati Jinich is an authority on Mexican cooking and author of Pati's Mexican Table. Today, Pati shares a recipe that takes Elote, the famous Mexican street food, and brings it straight to your kitchen.

    Messy goodness on a stick. That's what this is. Crunchy, juicy, sweet corn slathered in butter and mayo, coated in crumbled queso fresco, sprinkled with chile powder and salt, and drizzled with lime juice: it is one of those ubiquitous street foods of Mexico. I stalk street corn vendors when I am in Mexico, and my kids do exactly the same thing.

    To keep us all out of jail, I give them a hit of the "crazy corn" at home. Though my boys tend to have radically different preferences, this is one where their preferences clearly align: they want everything on there. When you serve it, just lay out all the garnishes -- and lots of napkins -- and let them go.
