Peach, Mushroom and Blue Cheese Pizza
I’ve been pretty obsessed with finding peaches for a while now, so I may have bought a few too many when I finally found them. I also picked up some pretty good looking oyster mushrooms, so I tried something a bit different with this.
Pizza can be really simple to make and the base can be make ahead of time, and refrigerated with cling film. I used this recipe from Jamie Oliver, which wasn’t too bad, and only takes an hour to rise.
- 1 portion of pizza dough
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 cups sliced onion
- 2 peaches, cut into thin wedges
- 2 cups oyster mushrooms (or whatever other mushrooms you want)
- 1/4 cup chopped rosemary
- Blue cheese (I used blue brie)
- Salt and pepper
Saute onions in balsamic in one pan, while you saute the mushrooms in a bit of olive oil, the rosemary, salt and pepper in another. Once they’re about ready to go, add the peaches for 2-3 minutes.
In an oven-proof skillet, coated in olive oil, lay the pizza dough in, spread about 1 cm thick. Layer on the cooked mushrooms, then the onions with thickened balsamic, then the peaches, and top with blue cheese. Pop in the oven for about 15-20 minutes at 200C / 375F, until the top is golden.
Who’s down to make this with me?
