Last Nights Dinner 07.26.11


I will admit, I have a slight obsession with pinterest. I love it. I even have the app. on my phone, which makes it even easier to look at pretty pictures where ever you are. I found this recipe the other week and pinned it right away. I knew it would be delicious. And guess what? IT WAS!!! So easy to make as well.

Nectarine Pizza with Fresh Basil and Reduced Balsamic

pizza dough (I just got some from our local market)
olive oil
fresh ricotta
buffalo mozzarella
1 nectarine, sliced
fresh Parmigianno Reggiano (shaved)
fresh basil

1. Preheat oven to 500 Degrees
2. Grease a baking pan or pizza stone. Toss/ stretch dough to size.
3. Drizzle with olive oil
4. Spread out riccota and mozzarella
5. Top with sliced necterines.
6. Sprinkle with Parmigianno Reggiano

Bake for 10 mins.

7. Wait till crust is slightly brown
8. Remove from oven and top with freshly chopped basil and arugula
9. Drizzle with Balsamic Glaze
10. Eat the whole thing!

How to Reduce balsamic:
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1. Pour balsamic in a pan. Turn heat to medium high. Let simmer until reduced and it has become much thicker. How have to be very careful not to burn it. Stir frequently.

Do you follow me on pinterest?

  7. I keep seeing pizza posts around the blog and pinterest world, but i have yet to see one with nectarines! very interesting!

  8. Pizza looks yummy! Can you invite me on Pinterest?

  9. That looks amazing!

  10. Seriously, YUM. I need to make this stat. I’ve made a lot of summer pizzas with lemon juice lately. Smitten Kitchen has this one with goat cheese, zucchini, and squeezed lemon that’s just awesome.

  11. holy cow this looks amazing. nectarines make anything good.

  12. Nectarines huh, I never had anything sweet on a pizza before, I wonder if I’d like this. My instinct would go “zucchini” on this, but maybe I should stray outside my comfort zone.
    Taimi is right btw, Smitten Kitchen has some of the best recipes around.

  15. This looks amazing! I never would have thought of putting nectarines on pizza, but my mouth is watering just thinking about this–yum!

  16. OY, yum you’re right it looks DIVINE! So glad you posted, currently sans dinner ideas and I think you may have just saved me from a husband coming home to no dinner : )

  17. Oh my goodness! That looks amazing! I have a new obsession with balsamic vinegar (my go-to salad is now mixed greens with sliced strawberries and balsamic), so I may want to try this 🙂 Thanks for sharing!


  18. I absolutely love your last night’s dinner posts! Theyre always so inspiring to make me try something new – I would never have thought of even looking at a pizza with nectarines on it, but this actually looks (and sounds) so tasty! Now to just convince the boyfriend 🙂

  19. Thanks for the recipe! I’ve bookmarked the recipe so I can try it out sometime!

  20. oh MY that looks delish! i’ve been seeing a lot of posts on pizza lately and it’s making me want to pick up the ingredient at the grocery store and give it my own try!
