Peach Pizza

Peach season is my favorite time of the year so creating recipes for it are always fun and tasty.  I had made a pizza last week and froze the 2nd dough ball for later use and decided to make a fruit pizza.  You can make a powdered sugar drizzle but I opted not too since it was already sweet enough.  The juices release enough while baking to give you a nice, crisp crust.



 
Peach Pizza
 
Pizza crust (makes 2) 

2 cups flour

1 tsp yeast
1/2 tsp honey
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup warm water
1/4 cup canola oil

Place the warm water, honey and yeast in a large measuring cup and let sit for 10 minutes Put the flour and salt in a food processor with the chopping blade.  Pulse until mixed.  Add in the yeast mixture and pulse again until it's all incorporated into the flour.  Switch to run and pour in canola oil and let the dough knead in the machine.  Remove dough and place on a lightly floured surface.  Knead for a couple minutes.  Cut in half (one half can be frozen for later use within a month).  Let dough sit for about 30 minutes.  This will give you time to get the rest of your ingredients ready.  Stretch out on a greased pizza pan.

3 peaches, peeled and sliced
¼ cup sugar
Mix peaches and sugar together and let sit for 10 minutes.  Place peaches on top of dough in a circular pattern.

Streusel
3 tbsp butter, melted
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup flour
1 tsp cinnamon

Combine together and sprinkle over top of the peaches.  Bake for 20 minutes at 350°.
