Peach, Arugula, and Ricotta Pizza with (Optional) Balsamic Reduction
Oh look, more peaches.
I told you they’d be coming, gave them to you 2 days ago, and now here they are again. What can I say? They’re delicious!
Although, today, the delicious-ness of peaches isn’t the only thing that caused me to share this recipe. The daily food holiday also inspired me.
It’s Cheese Pizza Day!
Of course, this isn’t exactly your classic cheese pizza.
But, then again, I don’t often do classic. I like to stick to uniquely delicious instead. And in case you had any doubt, yes, this pizza is definitely uniquely delicious.
Juicy peaches, creamy ricotta, and a just a bit of arugula make it one of the best of it’s kind. The fluffy and easy homemade dough is just the cherry on top, or, bottom, I suppose.
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp coarse salt
- 1 recipe pizza dough (from above)
- around 2/3 cup ricotta cheese, or enough to generously coat your whole pizza
- 3 ripe peaches, sliced (not peeled)
- 1/2 cup arugula
- Optional: Balsamic reduction, to drizzle on top
I’m telling you, this pizza is the way to celebrate Cheese Pizza Day.
All your friends, with their “classic” greasy mozzarella cheese pizzas with be begging for a slice. But don’t worry, if you decided this pizza is too good to share, I won’t tell anyone. I promise.
