If summer parties are all about casual, alfresco entertaining, then the menu at these seasonal bashes should be just as relaxed; that's where this week's Most Popular Pin of the Week comes in. Instead of an intricate, involved hors d'oeuvre, opt for this simple, eat-with-your-hands appetizer. Ready to eat in only 25 minutes, this crowd-pleasing recipe takes advantage of a welcome timesaver — prepared pizza dough — to turn out chewy, smoky grilled flatbread that's made conveniently on the grill, so you can spend time outside with your guests. For even more flavor, brush the dough with a garlic-spiked olive oil before grilling, and serve the bread with bright, no-cook tomato-vinegar sauce on the side.
