Peach Pizza (for a backyard pizza oven)

Recipe from Myke Olsen of Myke’s Pizza, 

Peach Pizza Toppings

2 oz. gouda, grated 

2 oz. low-moisture mozzarella, grated 

4 oz. fresh mozzarella, torn into quarter-sized pieces 

1 fresh peach  

Fresh sage  


Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Cut peach in half and remove the pit, then slice into ¼” slices. Note: frozen peaches can also be defrosted and used. Prepare crispy sage by removing leaves from stem of sage pieces. Heat a small amount of oil in a Dutch oven or skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sage leaves to the oil and cook quickly until bubbling of oil slows. Remove leaves and place on paper towels to drain excess oil. Rough chop pistachios. Stretch out pizza dough.  Break up mozzarella and gouda cheeses into chunks, and scatter over pizza. Add peaches. Cook for 5 minutes, rotate a half turn, and cook for another 5 minutes or until the crust has browned. Remove pizza from oven and add pistachios and crispy sage and serve.
