Peach flatbread pizza appetizer

Don't lick your screen. Don't you do it! I know it's tempting... but it's really better if you don't. The story behind this flatbread is that I had purchased a bunch of peaches from a farm stand. I had some girl friends coming over and was trying to think of an easy appetizer where I could incorporate the peaches. So I came up with this plan, melty mozzarella cheese, slices of perfectly juicy peaches, served on a crispy flatbread with a sprinkle of fresh basil and a drizzle of balsamic. And there you have it, the Peachy Flatbread. Truth is, I never ended up serving it to my friends because we ate our weight in cheese and funfetti dip (yes, that's an actual thing.) So, I got to enjoy this yummy pizza all by myself! It's so easy to make and only requires a handful of ingredients; it's a winner in my book! Get the full recipe below. 

Peach, Mozzarella, and Basil Flatbread Pizza
This recipe is for half of a flatbread which can be cut into about five appetizer-sized slices. 

Ingredients
1 flatbread, cut in half lengthwise
1 tablespoon olive oil
6 oz fresh mozzarella, sliced
1 peach, sliced
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
5-6 basil leaves, thinly sliced

Instructions
Preheat toaster oven to 425 (or regular oven to 400.) You can also cook this on the grill as well for a nice crispy crust. 

Brush the flatbread with olive oil. Spread out cheese and peach slices on flatbread and place in the toaster oven. Cook for 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted and the flatbread crust has browned. If desired, you can turn on the broiler for the last 2 minutes of cooking to get the top a little toasty. 

While the flatbread is cooking, add the balsamic vinegar and honey to a small nonstick sauce pan over medium heat. Allow the mixture to reduce and thicken (approximately 5 minutes) and then remove from the heat and allow it to cool slightly.

When done remove flatbread from the oven, sprinkle sliced basil and drizzle the balsamic reduction over the top. Slice and enjoy! Bon app├ętit!

  1. If I would come to this city again, I would be all over these venues in Los Angeles. We ordered Spinach artichoke dip at the server's suggestion and it was absolutely delicious.
