Description

This pizza is my latest and greatest summer time masterpiece. It features fresh peaches, blue and mozzarella cheeses, basil oil and a spunky chili oil from BA magazine!


Scale

Ingredients

For the basil oil:

1 cup packed fresh basil

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp salt

1 tbsp honey

For the pizza:

23 medium ripe peaches, sliced

8 oz fresh mozzarella cheese, drained and ripped into pieces

6 oz blue cheese, crumbled

23 tbsp Chili Crisp

kosher salt to taste

1 recipe simple pizza dough or sourdough pizza dough

Equipment: 9×13″ rimmed sheet pan


Instructions

First, make the basil oil:

  1. Combine all the ingredients for the basil oil in a food processor or blender and purée. Taste and adjust for seasoning. Store the basil oil in a container in the refrigerator for a week.

Make the pizza:

  1. Heat your oven to 450°F.
  2. Line a 9×13″ rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and grease the parchment paper with olive oil.
  3. Stretch out our dough directly into the prepared baking sheet, extending it into the corners. If the dough bounces back too much, just let it rest for 5 minutes, and try again. You’ll get it!
  4. Place the torn pieces of mozzarella cheese on top of the dough.
  5. Sprinkle the blue cheese on top of the mozzarella.
  6. Arrange the peach slices on top of the cheeses.
  7. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
  8. Slide the pizza into the oven and bake for 12 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbling.
  9. Remove from the oven and drizzle with the basil oil and chili crisp.
  10. Serve!

Notes

This recipe makes 2 9×13″ pizzas.

For this recipe I split the pizza dough into 2 pieces instead of 4, so I would have a thicker crust.
