Balsamic Peach Pizza

This recipe is perfect for summer when peaches are so juicy and delicious. I wish peach season was all year! Definitely one of my favorite fruits. Here’s your cast of characters for this one (excuse the bad lighting in the photos):

Peaches, red onion, balsamic of course, blue (or gorgonzola..or feta if you’re not into stinky cheeses), shredded mozz, and a pizza crust. Oh and olive oil & cooked shredded chicken (not pictured).

First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Next, prep your onion and peaches. Slice 2 peaches into thin wedges and slice about 1/2 an onion into very thin slices.

Next brush a thin layer of olive oil onto the pizza crust.

Now layer on the toppings. Start by sprinkling the shredded mozz. Next arrange the peaches, chicken, and onions. Last sprinkle on the blue cheese.

Bake the pizza for 11 mins or until crust is lightly browned. While it’s baking, make your balsamic reduction. Pour about 1/3 C of balsamic vinegar into a small saucepan and boil it until it reduces to about 2 T and thickens, about 5 mins.

Drizzle it over the pizza when it’s done and voila! Delicious and unique pizza to eat 🙂

Oops, drizzled a little too much balsamic this time. But it was still delicious!

Ingredients

  • 1 (10-ounce) prebaked thin pizza crust (such as Boboli)
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded cooked chicken breast
  • 1/3 cup (about 1 1/2 ounces) crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • 2 medium unpeeled peaches, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 a red onion

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. 2. Place pizza crust on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Brush 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil evenly over crust. Top evenly with 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, chicken, Gorgonzola cheese, and peach slices. Top with remaining 1/4 cup mozzarella. Bake at 400° for 11 minutes or until crust browns.
  3. 3. Place vinegar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat; cook until reduced to 2 tablespoons (about 5 minutes). Drizzle balsamic reduction evenly over pizza.

Yum! Enjoy!
