Juicy summer peaches and a tangy balsamic glaze take this caprese pizza WAY up a notch in the summer department! Perfect for a summer pizza night.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes

Ingredients

  • Prepared pizza dough for one 12-in pizza
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 8 oz fresh thinly sliced mozzarella
  • 2 ripe yet slightly firm peaches, pit removed and thinly sliced
  • 8-10 small basil leaves, torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425F. Roll pizza dough out to fit a 12-in pizza pan. Set aside for a moment.
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, heat olive oil until shimmery then add garlic and saute 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Add red pepper and basil and cook 1 additional minute.
  • Remove olive oil mixture from heat and brush all over prepared pizza dough. Arrange mozzarella in a single layer on pizza dough and top with sliced peaches and basil leaves. Season pizza with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Bake pizza at 425F 25-30 minutes, rotating pan once until crust is a deep golden brown and cheese is browned and bubbly.
  • While the pizza bakes, pour vinegar in a small saucepan and heat over medium-high heat until simmering. Reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer until balsamic is reduced in half and thickened into a thick glaze.
  • Drizzle balsamic glaze over pizza and cut into slices. Serve immediately and enjoy!
