Grilled Peach Pizza

Saaayyywhaaaa?

Oh yeah.  My friend Kristin posted a photo of her grilled pizza she made not too long ago and man was I inspired.  And then I flipped through Cooking Light and saw fruit on a pizza and it was all down hill from there.  I was hooked.  Here’s how I made mine.

You’ll need:

  • pizza crust
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • mozzarella cheese
  • spinach
  • onion, chopped
  • green pepper, chopped
  • chicken, cooked and shredded
  • apple wood smoked blue cheese
  • 1-2 peaches, thinly sliced
  • balsamic vinegar

I started off by taking a pre-made pizza (I haven’t messed around with making my own pizza dough and I was not in the mood to try), brushed some oil on it and slapped it on the grill (medium high heat), about a couple minutes on each side to warm it up and get some grill marks on it.  I then added some mozz cheese, spinach, onion, peppers, shredded chicken, apple wood smoked blue cheese, peach slices, and topped off with a little more mozz.  Shut the grill and let her go until the cheese has melted and the pizza is warmed through out.  Um this apple wood smoked blue cheese is OUT OF THIS WORLD.  I think I could have ate the whole thing because it was JUST THAT GOOD.  I refrained.  It will go on the next pizza I make.

Now the balsamic vinegar.  If you are handy and can multitask, pour about 1/3 cup in a small sauce pan and boil for about 2-3 minutes until it has reduced.  Once the pizza is done (or do this as soon as the pizza comes off the grill or oven), drizzle this all over it.  Oh yeah.  Do not forget this part.  It makes the pizza.  I may start drizzling it over everything. And I mean everything.
