Peach Pizza with Basil and Blue Cheese


                       I'm a pizza lover. I could eat it everyday of my life without any complaints.
                  My children are the same way. I'll take it savory or sweet. This version happens
                  to be the best of both worlds. I've been making fruit pizzas for as long as I can
                  remember. When it's Summer I don't eat much meat and try to put fruit into -
                  everything. This recipe would work great with any stone fruit you have on hand
                  Experiment. You can also use any cheese that you'd like........

                                             
                                              Peach Pizza with Basil and Blue Cheese

                               1 pizza dough, (I got mine at Trader Joe's)
                               3 to 4 peaches, sliced
                               red onion, sliced...add as much as you'd like. I like a lot.
                               1/2 cup peach preserves
                               1 cup mozzarella, shredded
                               1/3 cup blue cheese
                               2 tablespoons honey
                               1/2 cup fresh basil
                               salt and pepper to taste

                      1) Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare your dough and spread your peach
                       preserves on dough. Add mozzarella, peaches, onion and blue cheese.
                       Cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until done. Add basil and drizzle honey.
                       Note....I like to add extra onions and cheese peaches at the end for a fresh
                       touch.

                                         I hope you all are having a wonderful Summer.
