    OK, my review is unfair because I made the mistake of putting tomato sauce on it. Bleah. Will try again and follow the instructions this time.

    This was super easy and very good. I used spinach instead of arugula for the salad because I wanted to use it up and it was great. I disagree about the balsamic - I think it really made the flavors pop. A great, FAST supper!

    I absolutely love this pizza!! It was divine!! The vinegar frightened me at first, but the whole thing came together perfectly. Will definitely make again.

    I made this for a birthday gathering last night, and everyone enjoyed it. The only change I made was using frozen sliced peaches since my grocery store didn't have fresh, and that worked perfectly. Next time I might forgo the balsamic reduction--I didn't think it added that much to the flavor of the pizza. I will definitely make this again--great for a spring or summer meal.

    Made this tonight. Flavors came together very well and the salad pairs perfectly on top of pizza. Agree with the one reviewer about the balsamic reduction, won't use this next time. Definitely will be making this again.

    I substituted regular blue cheese for the gorgonzola and the pizza ended up being a little overwhelmed with blue cheese flavor, I wonder if that would have made a difference? I did not make the arugula salad, but think that would have been an excellent addition to cut the sharpness of the blue cheese.

    My husband and I really enjoyed this pizza but I think it would be better with the arugula salad on top suggested in the May article. I added a heavy pinch of salt, made my own dough and had to sub bottled peaches b/c the grocer was out of fresh. The balsamic reduction sauce is the perfect finishing touch; the flavors all go well together but lack a brightness that the salad (or fresh peaches?!) would add.

    Loved it! Tasted even better the next day!

    This pizza was extremely tasty, with the contrast of the sweet peach, the tart balsamic glaze, and the sharp cheese. I second the suggestion to put the salad on top, it was a great combination of flavors.

    Husband and I did not like this. It was way too bland for us.

    This was excellent! I used a Pillsbury Pizza Crust instead of pre-baked. The only addition I made to this pizza was a little bit of rosemary in the first cheese layer, which added extra flavor. I loved the mixing of flavors between the peaches, gorgonzola and balsamic. We will definitely make this again, and would not hesitate to make for guests. The arugula salad was also a nice side item, although I did not top my pizza with it.

    This one's a keeper! The flavors melded together really well and it was a satisfying, good tasting pizza. The only change I made was to use a little extra mozzarella. I can't imagine how it could be bland between the balsamic reduction, gorgonzola and even the peaches. I served it with the arugula salad on the side. I will definitely be making it again while peaches are still in season.

    My husband and I loved this pizza. I used homemade pizza dough and cooked it on the BBQ. So fabulous!

    Okay, I felt the need to chime in on this one. We made this last night and it was so tasty that the two of us ate the entire thing in one sitting (whoops). First off, the Gorgonzola is perfect for this pizza. I can't imagine it with regular Blue Cheese cuz that would be far too overwhelming. Second, since the peaches are one of the main elements, you have to get them fresh, no excuses (just don't make this in the winter). Also, though the poster qualified her review, there is no place for tomato sauce nor no need for it in this pizza. That again, I'd imagine, would be quite gross. Not sure why a few people gave four stars but had nothing but good things to say. Anyway, if this is too bland for you, you either forgot to put the peaches in it (or the chicken, or the cheese, or the balsamic, and you were just eating plain crust), or you're from Texas where nothing tastes good without 15 pounds of lard slathered on top. Maybe try throwing some ice cream on it next time.

    This pizza was amazing, I added some red onions, and it complimented it nicely

  • oldruth Posted: 12/04/11

    We loved this! I make my own crust, so that was different. We can't get good peaches this time of year, so I drained some of the peaches I canned in the summer. Other than that, I pretty much stuck to the recipe. Anyway, the combination of flavors was excellent and I will definitely make this again.

    I am stingy with giving out 5 stars but this one was close. I made as directed the first time as an appetizer for my wine club and got raves. The second time I didn't have a pizza crust on hand, so used a whole grain Naan bread. Also, as the peaches were very ripe, I drained the slices into a bowl and incorporated the juice into the balsamic reduction. Yummy!

    At first my husband said "Peaches??? On a PIZZA???" but this was truly outstanding. Using pre-cooked chicken meant it came together in a snap. And the balsamic reduction (be sure to use quality vinegar) deepened the flavor profile. We also liked the arugula salad as suggested: http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/arugula-salad-50400000111972/. Will make again and again.

    My new husband loved it and so did I. The only thing I couldn't do was use the balsamic vinegar finish because I didn't have enough on hand. Nonetheless, it was a great combo of flavors-sharp, sweet and a bit of tang. I had found some Boboli individual crusts for $1.00 each on sale and used one gigantic fresh peach I already had, cooked up one chicken breast and found this to be a very cheap meal and tasty. The individual crust was quite large so when cut into four pieces was more than enough and had topping left over to make another one for lunches the next day. One we will make again.

  • kallen18 Posted: 05/15/12

    Quick to assemble. Used rotisserie chicken for even faster prep. I froze the peach for about 20-30 minutes to make it easier to slice. Lastly, used about half the reduction and thought that was a satisfactory amount. Such delicious flavor! Highly recommended. Will definitely make again.

    Very simple to do for a quick week night dinner. It's a regular in our dinner rotation during peach season.

    AMAZING!!!....Whoever said this was bland did not make this correctly. All the flavors just tied together perfectly. I actually made my own pizza dough with cake flour and cooked them on the grill.

  • daneanp Posted: 01/09/14

    Yum. I thought I could make the balsamic reduction ahead, but it turned into a hard mess, so had to repeat that step. I'm glad I did. Used a combination of Stilton blue cheese and feta as that is what I had on hand. Can't wait to try this when peaches are at their peak. Everyone loved it. Serving size is too small though!!
