Three Cheese Peach and Prosciutto Pizza with Basil and Honey Balsamic Reduction

Three Cheese Peach Prosciutto and Honey Balsamic Pizza | Cooking Classy If there were an ultimate summer pizza I’d have to say, in my opinion, this should definitely be it! I couldn’t believe how amazingly delicious this pizza was! Like, I’m thinking this should now be added to my menu on a weekly basis. Just imagine a soft pizza crust topped with garlic oil and layered with delicately thin slices of irresistible Italian prosciutto. Then cover that with three cheeses (this time around, ricotta, fresh mozzarella and asiago, all of which perfectly compliment peaches) and top it with plenty of fresh peach slices. Then take that and bake it in a blazing hot oven to golden perfection, which will give you that crave worthy deliciously melted cheese and sweet and tender roasted peaches. And now, finish that all off with a generous amount of fresh basil ribbons and a honey balsamic reduction to die for. Yes, it’s a pizza you’re not going to forget. This pizza is pizza done right! Pizza is so much more than just tomato sauce, mozzarella and pepperoni. It’s a world of endless possibilities. So, step outside of the comfort zone and make something a little different this time around. You won’t regret it! Enjoy!

5 from 1 vote

Ingredients

  • 1 (16 oz) pizza dough, homemade or store bought
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic , finely minced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 oz prosciutto
  • 4 oz ricotta cheese (1/2 cup)
  • 5 oz fresh mozzarella , diced into small cubes
  • 2 oz asiago cheese , shredded (1/2 cup)
  • 1 1/2 medium fresh peaches
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • Flour , for dusting
  • 1/3 cup slightly packed fresh basil leaves , chopped

Instructions

  1. Place pizza stone in oven and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Let pizza stone preheat with oven and rest 30 minutes (assemble pizza during last 10 minutes or so).
  2. Meanwhile, pour balsamic vinegar and honey into a large and deep skillet. Set skillet over medium heat, allow mixture to cook and simmer, until reduced to slightly under a 1/2 cup, about 15 minutes (I recommend using a silicone spatula to stir, so you can scrape bottom and sides of pan while stirring. Stir mixture occasionally during first 5 minutes, then stir constantly during last 10 minutes).
  3. Lightly dust a sheet of parchment paper (about 14-inch long) with flour. Stretch and shape dough into a 12 1/2-inch round. In a small bowl, stir together olive oil and garlic. Brush mixture evenly over top of crust, working to evenly distribute garlic. Season crust lightly with salt and pepper. Layer prosciutto over crust into an even layer, aligning pieces side by side (if they overlap slightly that's fine). Dollop small portions of the ricotta over pizza, then sprinkles with mozzarella cubes and asiago cheese.
  4. Cut peaches in half and core. Laying peaches with sliced side down, cut peaches into slices (slightly over 1/4-inch thick). Layer peaches evenly over pizza. Using a pizza peel, transfer pizza on parchment to preheated pizza stone in oven. Bake 10 - 12 minutes until edges are lightly golden.
  5. Remove from oven, sprinkle with fresh basil, and drizzle with honey balsamic reduction (store left over reduction in fridge). Cut into slices and serve warm.
