I’m not sure what in tarnation possessed me to make a peach pizza, but I sure am glad I did.

Don’t judge me because this is one ugly pizza.  I had a terrible fight with the Harris Teeter pizza dough.  I’m not sure which one of us should be charged with assault, but I was definitely on the losing end of the battle.

First of all, my Personal Shopper at the HT packed it with my Tater Tots and stuck it in the freezer. So after I pulled into My Express Lane, my groceries were loaded into my car, and  then driven home (that part was done by me – I’m not THAT lazy) and unloaded (also by me) I discovered that my dinner was frozen.

WTF Harris Teeter Personal Shopper?

Plan B for dinner was burgers, but HT was out of the buns I wanted and my Personal Shopper didn’t see fit to substitute another brand.  We suddenly were out of options for dinner.

I believe Chris’s opinion was along the lines of parking my car and taking my lazy self into the grocery and doing my own shopping.

Peach and Prosciutto Pizza

Peach and Prosciutto Pizza

Ingredients

  • 1 ball prepared pizza dough
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 ripe peaches, pitted and sliced about 1/4 inch thick
  • 8 ounces sliced mozzarella
  • 2-3 ounces crumbled goat cheese
  • 6 ounces (about 8 thinly sliced pieces) prosciutto, torn into thirds
  • Balsamic fig reduction, optional (I used a prepared one by Blaze)
  • 12 or so basil leaves, rolled and sliced into ribbons

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425
  2. Shape pizza dough flat on a pizza stone or baking sheet
  3. Brush the dough with olive oil
  4. Arrange peach slices evenly around the pizza dough
  5. Top peaches with mozzarella and goat cheese then prosciutto
  6. Bake for 25 to 28 minutes, until cheese is melted and crust is brown and crispy - cooking time will vary according the how thick your dough is and mine was a bit on the thicker side even though I used half of a Harris Teeter pizza dough ball
  7. Toss basil on top and drizzle with balsamic fig reduction

  1. I must admit I never tried a pizza with peaches, saying that I also believe prosciutto goes well with mostly everything. Fruit included.
    Somehow I think we have got something quite interesting here today 😉

    Also, I don’t think it looks ugly at all

    • Thanks Emanuele! My ugly pizza appreciates your kindness 🙂 and I totally agree with you about the prosciutto!

  2. I LOVE that Chris got leftovers, because umm helllloooo?? Why should you have to go INTO the store. Thats what the dang personal shopper is for. Duh! You should NOT be punished for the personal shopper placing pizza dough into the freezer (<—who does that!? Bad personal shopper!)

    I'm glad you ended up (eventually and with thawed dough) making pizza because this one looks AMAZING! I loooooove the combination of peach and prosciutto with mozzarella AND goat cheese AND a Balsamic fig redux?? Oh.My.Gawwwwddd. Gimme some of that!!! Drool fest happening over here. This is getting pinned, printed and totally happening in my kitchen. Love. Cheers, girlfriend!

    • Right? Exactly! I knew there was a reason we’re friends! You always get me – and crack me up! I totally should not have to get out of my car and walk into the store in 99 degree heat. That is absolutely outrageous!

      I was totally ridiculous with this pizza and it was worth it. Thanks for the Pin and I hope you like it! Cheers, friend! XOXO

    • Thanks Lucy! I always appreciate positive feedback on my pics – it’s an area I’m trying to improve.

    • He sure did! It’s funny, I’ve never had pineapple on pizza. Thanks so much, Annie! I hope you like it!

    • You totally should! Do it! Thanks Manali! Are you all unpacked and settled in your new house?

  3. I have never quite figured out the sweet and savory combo.. Whether I like it, I mean… But this pizza looks prettttyyyy tempting, probably cause your food photography ROCKS!

    • Girl, totally do it! I have held back so many posts because someone else happened to have a similar idea at the same time. It’s silly. There are so many great ideas out there that are bound to collide. I finally decided that if I feel confident about a recipe then I am going to post it regardless of whether someone else had something similar. I have very basic rules for life. If I am inspired or modifying I say so. If not, it’s all in my head and I can’t help it if someone else thought the same thing at the same time. DO IT!

  4. You shut your mouth! This pizza is not ugly in ANY way. In fact, it is quite possibly the most beautiful thing I’ve seen in a long time. Gahhhh! I love fruit on pizza and fresh peaches sounds just AMAZING! Especially with salty prosciutto. I love this! <3

  5. Girl, you are brilliant! This is such a strange combination, but I want to try it. Plus it has goat cheese?!? That’s my kind of pizza. I’ll take a slice, please! Thanks for joining us again for The Wednesday Showcase. We are loving your recipes!

    • Thank you so much, Jenna! You just made my heart smile! And everything is good with goat cheese, right?
