Peach and Chèvre Pizza with Balsamic Onions and Arugula


The instant I threw this pizza together I knew it would be going into my late summer/early fall repertoire for years to come. Its birth is the result of being faced with leaving town unexpectedly for a few days, badly in need of a trip to the grocery store, and with a refrigerator full of produce that would be past its prime when I returned. Holy moly, just try it.


Peach and Chèvre Pizza with Balsamic Onions and Arugula

• your favorite pizza dough recipe (or my favorite cheat, ready-to-go from the refrigerated section)
• 2 peaches
• 1 red onion
• 4 oz chèvre (goat cheese)
• 3 C loosely packed arugula
• 1/3 C balsamic vinegar
• 1 Tbsp olive oil
• 1/2 tsp sea salt

Slice the onion up into thin strips. Place in a medium bowl and toss to coat in the balsamic vinegar, let sit for 10 minutes. Skin, slice, and pit the peaches and add to onion/balsamic bowl. Place and stretch your (homemade or store bought) pizza dough into a large cookie sheet, it will be fairly thin. Removed onions and peaches from the bowl and scatter across dough, saving the balsamic. Dot the pizza evenly with pieces of chèvre. Bake according to dough instructions. In the meantime, toss arugula in the leftover balsamic, olive oil, and sea salt. Once pizza is finished baking, cover evenly with the arugula mixture and let sit for 5 minutes. Some wilting will occur, which is totally fine. Enjoy!
