Grilled Peach and Goat Cheese Pizza

Oh yes...this is the motherload people...perhaps one of the BEST pizzas I have had to date...peaches, goat cheese and honey?  I die!

This is the perfect balance of sweet and savory...so delicious...you must try it now!  I believe the secret is in grilling the peaches...they're soft and just melt once they're on the pizza.  Combined with the creamy goat choose and honey reduction...wow!

Definitely heaven on a plate!

Recipe adapted from Zested:
  • Pizza Crust {homemade or store bought}
  • Ripe peaches, thinly sliced 
  • 1/4 water
  • 3 T. honey
  • fresh thyme sprigs
  • 2 t. balsamic vinegar
  • fresh goat cheese, crumbled
  • good olive oil, for brushing
  • freshly ground salt, to taste
Preheat grill on high.

Heat water until boiling, add honey and thyme. Cook down until reduced by half. Stir in balsamic vinegar and set aside.

Grill peaches directly on grill for a couple minutes on each side...just enough to warm them and show grill marks.

Brush one side of the pizza crust lightly with olive oil and lay it, oiled side down, directly on the grill until heated through with light grill marks.

Slide off the grill onto a flat surface like a cutting board and flip over, reducing heat to low. Brush again lightly with olive oil. Sprinkle with goat cheese, and arrange peaches on top. Close grill top until dough crisps and cheese begins to soften, about 3 minutes.

Remove from grill and drizzle immediately with the honey-balsalmic reduction, and a few grates of coarse salt. Serve immediately.

 We made this last night and it lasted NO time at all...great as an appetizer for a party or dinner for two!  

I am also SUPER excited to showcase my wedding over at tickled. today!  I am also posting my creative spaces over at Rose Bredl...be sure to stop by check them both out!
Hope you enjoy!  Bon Appetit!

  15. this reminds me a little bit of a pizza from CPK. it has grilled pear, carmalized onions, goat cheese, and salad. I love unique pizza combos but my hubs is not a fan. More for me! I will have to try this!
