Not only dessert!

   So I am continuing with a "Peach Week" theme but no, it's not going to be another dessert! This time I made a savory, delicious pizza with peaches, Prosciutto and mozzarella cheese. Pizza is one of those super versatile dishes that can be made with any ingredient available and everybody can create their own (that would make about 7.031 billion different versions of pizza!). Pizza dough is almost like a clean board that let you discover your inner artist and create a real masterpiece. After making this one, I think it's not the last one from me, I just got inspired to create even more pizzas with all sorts of ingredients. Here is this one:

*  thin crust pizza dough
*  fresh mozzarella cheese
*  1 large onion (thinly sliced)
*  1 large peach (peeled and thinly sliced)
*  6 slices Prosciutto
*  Parmesan cheese block
*  1/2 cup chopped cilantro
*  1 tbsp olive oil
*  1 tbsp butter

1. Melt butter and saute thinly sliced onions until browned and caramelized.
2. Roll the pizza dough, brush the top with olive oil and cover with caramelized onions.
3. On the top of onions layer slices of mozzarella cheese, peaches and Prosciutto.

4. Bake at 400F for 15 minutes.
5. After taking it out of the oven, sprinkle with chopped fresh cilantro and shaved Parmesan cheese.

   Where do I start? Salty Prosciutto and Parmesan, sweet peaches, fresh cilantro and melted gooey mozzarella... do I need to go on? Such a great pizza.



  1. This looks delicious, although I'm wondering, would it be equally as good without the onion? I'm not really an onion-person.

    1. Funny that you mentioned that Bethany, we were just talking about it that we could make it without onions! I think it would be delicious even without them! Give it a try.

  2. We made this for dinner tonight, it was delicious!!

    1. That's great! Isn't it a fun dinner?

  3. This pizza looks beautiful! I love pizza, but always shy away from making it at home because I just haven't found a great crust recipe. What recipe do you use for the crust? (I would not be opposed to buying a crust, but grocery stores around here only carry premade, precooked, processed bread-like things.)

  4. Unfortunately I can't help you too much with a crust recipe. I buy Pillsbury Thin Crust in a refrigerated section of supermarket. If you can't find it in your store, maybe you can try your local pizza place... usually they can sell you some fresh delicious pizza dough.

    Good luck,

  5. Hi there! Thanks for the recipe. I made this for lunch today using Naan as my crust. I also used some really good deli ham and red onion (uncooked) and it turned out great. The flavors are amazing :)
