We’re about to finish the first season of Friday Night Lights. It’s kinda what I’m living for right now. Whoa… that sounds dramatic. But really, it’s the only thing that is motivating to get all my work done before 9PM every day.  Why did we wait so long to watch this show? I’m like A DECADE BEHIND in this Tim Riggins crush thing. I get it ladies, I TOTALLY GET IT.  As a result of all of this hoopla, we’re having a hard time not watching three episodes in one night and our sleep the past few weeks has been all messed up because of it. Oh…Netflix…you sure do mess with my life…not that I’m complaining or anything.

Side note: Netflix & Chill

I just learned that term this Halloween when I met someone dressed as that (!!!!).

Now that we’ve gotten my current TV-binge viewing situation out of the way, I’m sharing this fabulous Roasted Grape Sage Pizza I made last week. I had a few grapes sitting around and some sage leftover from this heavenly sandwich so BANG! We have pizza.

I was inspired to do so when I saw this recipe on my Pinterest feed.

Looks super delicious, right?

The grapes are coated in sage infused brown butter and get roasted with walnuts, mozzarella, and gorgonzola on the pizza dough. We garnish the baked pizza with crispy fried sage and drizzle a little balsamic on top! It’s a sweet savory extravaganza.

Let’s gather our ingredients:

Roasted Grape & Sage Pizza

serves 4-5

  • 1 1lb. pizza dough
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter
  • 15 fresh sage leaves
  • 1 1/2 cups red grapes
  • 1  1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • salt & pepper
  • balsamic vinegar, for serving

Preheat oven to 450F

In a small skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add sage and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until sage is crispy. Set sage aside on a paper towel and stir the grapes into the infused sage butter to evenly coat. Set grapes aside.

Stretch pizza dough into a 14 inch circle onto a pizza pan or baking sheet.  Top with mozzarella and gorgonzola cheese. Evenly distribute grapes on top of pizza followed by walnuts. Season with salt and pepper and bake until crust is nicely browned, about 15-18 minutes.  To serve, top pizza with reserved fried sage and a light drizzle of balsamic vinegar.

    I loved Friday Night Lights… kind of wish I was watching it again for the first time! This grape situation looks AMAZING! I’ve made a roasted grape flatbread thing before, but the addition of fried sage is GENIUS! Making this ASAP.

    • Tracy

      That’s how I feel about the show Six Feet Under- We’ve watched it three times and I’m jealous of people who have never seen it before 😉

  • Lindsay

    Tim Riggins 4lyfe. Swooooon. Also, this pizza. Double swoon. ♥

  • Michele

    I’ve made the Thyme-Roasted Grapes – LLLLOVE them! And now I have to make this, too… Love everything about it! And it’s the perfect excuse to finally fry some sage. Thank you!

  • Megan

    So pizza already begs to be eaten with wine…but now throw grapes on it?! This sounds like the best way to ease into fall and a glass of merlot. Thank you for sharing! Oh…and I know you probably are tired of fielding these questions…but is the podcast done? I certainly hope you and Joy are still majs.

  • Jean

    i have to make this recipe! i have become addicted to the pizza sonoma from hector’s in petaluma! it has artichoke hearts, sundried tomatoes, grapes and red onions and is amazing. i was skeptical at first but love it and order it almost every time.

  • Kimberly V.

    Love the idea of grapes on pizza. And sage anything I will put in my face.

    Friday Night Lights is THE BEST show! There is a story line in season 2 that is a little cringeworthy but stick with it thru the end. I am so excited to know that there is someone in the world experiencing this for the 1st time! (There is a Grantland article about the show that is so well done and ESPN suspended Grantland so you might want to print it to read after the show in case it disappears. In fact I am going to go read it again right now!)

      Oh cool! Thanks for that. I have been warned twice about season 2. AHHHHH! I’m nervous.

  • Heather

    Oh I need to get back to watching Friday Night Lights – somehow I started it but never finished it. Not because it’s not amazing though… I just really suck at watching TV shows (weird, I know). I keep seeing roasted grapes online lately. Maybe it’s a sign that I need to give them a try!

  • Gaby Dalkin

    It’s truly incredible how we can get sucked into shows…and then think we’re living in that reality and those people are our friends. oh, only me? Also, TIM RIGGINS <3 Also, this pizza is the bees knees, making ASAP

  • Kate

    Oh, Friday Night Lights! I stalled at the end of the second season, which was kind of screwed up due to the writers’ strike, and I really need to get back on it. Landry is on the current season of Fargo, too. The pizza looks amazeballs! People get kind of freaked out by hot grapes, but my mom used to make a kind of stir fry of sausages, green beans and grapes from a 70’s issue of Sunset.

    Ha!Ha! Clear Eyes Full Hearts Can’t Lose.

    I watched FNL for the first time last spring and it was one of the most satisfying series I have seen. Enjoy!

    Swooning over that interesting looking pizza. Yum.

  • Lorin

    Made the pizza tonight – OMG so good. I subbed feta for Gorgonzola and pine nuts for walnuts (my husband is allergic to walnuts) and it was still delicious. Thanks for the great recipe!

  • Cyndi

    Made this pizza- it is CRAZY GOOD! After we devoured one we scraped up enough ingredients to make it again and devoured a second one. It is very light and savory. My husband thought I was insane cooking grapes. He has been converted. THANKS!

    • Tracy

      Awesome. I totally thought cooked grapes were going to be weird too, but they are so juicy! I love them.
