Summer Peach Balsamic Pizza
Summer's almost to an end, but it's not too late to pick up some succulent produce to make these amazing dishes for dinner. I'll be dreaming about the peach pizza with warm goat cheese, sweet-like-candy balsamic drizzle, savory golden-brown dough, and fresh basil. You haven't lived until you've tried it!
Allow store-bought pizza dough (preferred brand: Trader Joe's) to rest on a lightly floured surface for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, heat 1 cup of balsamic vinegar over medium-high heat in a small saucepan. Bring to a hot simmer, then reduce to low and cook for about 20 minutes until reduced to about 1/4 cup and syrupy. Meanwhile, pre-heat the oven to 500 degrees and thinly slice about 2 peaches that have been pitted. Roll the pizza dough into a long rectangle, about 1/4 inch thick. Brush with olive oil, sprinkle with about 1 cup of grated Mozzarella cheese, 1-2 ounces of crumbled goat cheese, the sliced peaches, and about 3/4 of the balsamic drizzle. Bake in the oven for about 8-10 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the crust is golden brown. Finish with fresh very thinly sliced basil and the rest of the balsamic drizzle.
