How this peach and prosciutto pizza caprese is gonna make your life easier
This pizza with peaches is great because the only chopping required is to slice the cheese, tomatoes, and peach. There aren't many ingredients so it'll be fast to chop the few that need chopping. So it comes together quickly.
Make your own pizza dough (I made this super easy Food Network dough) or buy pre-made dough to make your life even easier!
What makes this summer pizza?
How do I make a caprese peach pizza
Start making your caprese pizza with peaches: preheat oven to 450 degrees. Slice your tomatoes and mozzarella, place on paper towel or towel to remove some liquid.
Cut pizza dough in half, save one half. Roll dough out on baking mat or parchment paper and then slide it on a baking sheet.
Brush olive oil over pizza dough, then place cheese and tomatoes evenly around pizza. Bake at 450 degrees for 8 minutes.
Evenly distribute prosciutto over pizza. Bake for another 2-3 minutes or until prosciutto and crust are golden brown.
Remove pizza from oven and place peach chunks and fresh basil leaves on pizza, sprinkle salt, and drizzle balsamic reduction or glaze over caprese pizza with peaches.
Cut caprese pizza with peaches into slices and eat immediately.
- Lay the tomatoes & cheese on a paper towel for 10 minutes to release some of their moisture. If not, your caprese pizza with peaches will come out watery in the middle and can easily become soggy.
- Roll pizza dough out on a baking pad or parchment paper that you'll bake it on to prevent it from getting over stretched and form holes.
- I don't recommend cooking the peaches unless you're able to use a pizza oven or grill, the peaches got too watery for me when I tried to cook them.
- Make your own balsamic reduction with balsamic vinegar
- Substitution ideas: honestly this pizza is so good as it is and for once I wouldn't recommend making substitutions.
I made my own (it's super easy & a great low waste option). I made ½ recipe of this Food Network dough and substituted about half the flour with whole wheat flour. I then cut the dough in half and froze the 2nd half. For one less step, I'd recommend buying your favorite premade dough instead of premade crust. Or if you're in need of an even quicker dough-buy premade flatbread.
I bought a balsamic glaze from Sprouts & have been really happy with it. You certainly can make your own glaze but if you're anything like me, you're not going to take the 15+ minutes to make it every time you want a balsamic glaze.
Buy mozzarella cheese that's not packed in water. You don't want a puddle of water in the middle of your caprese pizza with peaches.
What can I make with leftover ingredients?
