Grilled Peach, Prosciutto and Goat Cheese Pizza

Ingredients

  • 1½ cups Fresh Thyme balsamic vinegar
  • 1 (9 oz. pkg.) Fresh Thyme Pizza Crust
  • 1 Tbsp. Fresh Thyme extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 to 5 slices Fresh Thyme provolone cheese, shredded to 1 cup
  • 2 to 3 fresh peaches, pitted and thinly sliced
  • 2 oz. Fresh Thyme goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1 oz. prosciutto, crisp-cooked and broken
  • ¼ cup loosely packed Fresh Thyme basil, chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat grill for direct cooking over medium-low heat (325°F). Lightly flour a work surface; press or roll dough into a 12-inch circle. Place dough round on a pizza stone or baking sheet. Brush dough, including edges, with olive oil, then sprinkle with provolone cheese. Layer peaches on cheese.
  2. Grill for 15 to 20 minutes or until crust is golden and cheese is bubbly. If a crisper crust is desired, remove pizza from the stone and place directly on the grill rack; grill an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from grill; top with goat cheese, prosciutto, and basil. Drizzle with reduction sauce. Cut into 8 slices; serve warm.
