Grilled Peach Pizza

Hi guys! Happy Monday!

How was your weekend? Mine felt way too short, so I definitely need a vacation pretty soon!

On Saturday we went out for some fire grilled pizza, which reminded me of this recipe, so I decided to share it with you.

Some days, I just decide not to follow any recipes. Just make something quick and easy for dinner, with ingredients I already have. That’s how this pizza came up. Plus my husband is always happy, when there is pizza/pasta for dinner.

Sweet grilled peaches, fresh peppery arugula and creamy blue cheese  (I used Gorgonzola) create the perfect balance in this pizza.

I’ve been a fan of grilled peaches for a while. I either eat them with yogurt, ice cream or add them to salads. Never used them as pizza topping, but I’ve seen recipes like that and really wanted to try that. Grilling peaches really brings out their flavor and sweetness.

You can definitely add prosciutto or bacon to it, but I decided to stay on the meatless side.

Summer Grilled Peach Pizza

I baked the pizza dough on my pizza stone on the grill. You can also bake it in the oven, if you’d like. If you have no tome to make homemade pizza dough, store bought is totally fine.

I also added some caramelized onions to the pizza and drizzled some reduced balsamic vinegar, to complete the look and taste.
