                                                                                                                                   PEACH PIZZA!

This season has had me craving peaches like crazy!

Where I am from in NJ, the most attractive season for peaches happens to be between July 20- September 1.

As you can see above in the photo, I used peaches as a topping for homemade my pizza!

Recipe for Peach Pizza:

First, for the dough:  view my recipe from my Margherita Pizza

Second: for the toppings, all you need are sliced fresh peaches, feta cheese, ricotta cheese, spinach leaves, oregano, and crushed black pepper and salt.

I truly feel this recipe is a mixture of summer and fall seasons .

Nikita's Tip Of The Day : To ripen under ripe peaches, place them in a paper bag (or even brown bags) and pierce the bag several times in different places. Set aside at room temperature for a couple of days, and Viola! Beautiful pink-blushed velvety peaches

Fun fact: Adding an apple to the bag will speed the ripening process!
