This Peach Pizza is full of bold flavors that pair beautifully together. Topped with fresh peach, Canadian bacon, Gorgonzola cheese and Thai basil. My recipe comes complete with instructions on how to make your own pizza dough from scratch.
Peach pizza? What the?
I know you might be thinking, what in the actual …? Peaches on a pizza? Believe it or not, this turned out to be a wonderful combination of Gorgonzola and peaches, it’s a flavor combination that is out of this world! I do have to admit, I added a generous amount of Canadian back bacon as well, my way of sneaking pork onto what I consider a “girly frufru” pizza. Add a bit of fresh basil on top of everything and you might even get lucky that evening.
I’m talking to the men here, I’m assuming there are some men reading this blog: If you want to surprise your woman – make this pizza.

- Olive Oil – I used Extra Virgin.
- Cheese – Classic mozzarella, shredded – for the base and blue cheese or Gorgonzola – whatever, crumbled for the top!
- Bacon – Canadian style bacon or simply ham, sliced or cubed.
- Peach – Obviously we need this for a peach pizza. Unpeeled, thinly sliced.
- Basil – I used a bunch of Thai basil leaves because that’s what I like.
You can make or buy your own pizza dough for this recipe! If I were you, I’d use my pizza dough recipe, it’s easy and fool proof and you can also brag about how you made your own dough from scratch, which is a bonus in my books.
How to make peach pizza
- Preheat Oven – Preheat oven to 500° F / 260° C
- Assemble Pizza – Roll out the dough and place it on a pizza tray. Brush with 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil and top evenly with shredded mozzarella cheese then Canadian bacon, Gorgonzola and peach slices.
- Bake – Bake for 10 minutes or until the crust goes brown.
- Note: There is also the option of baking it for 5 minutes without the peach slices and then adding them in the last 5 minutes of baking but is a matter of choice, I really loved mine toasted.
- Finish & Serve – Season with loads of pepper and top with a few basil leaves. Eat it.
How to serve
Ok so it’s a pizza.. I think you know how to serve it.
If you DO want another tip, because I’m full of them and I’m in a giving mood, you can also sprinkle some balsamic reduction over the top, or if you’re a die hard fan like I am, some Frank’s Red Hot Sauce.
You’re welcome, Im such a peach! (get it?)
