You know I couldn’t go the rest of the summer without posting another peach recipe, right? So today I’m bringing you this honey, peach and bacon pizza that’s full of summer flavour! It’s sweet, salty and loaded with gooey cheese and bacon. Did I mention it has BACON!?? Can it get any better? Well, that generous drizzle of honey might do it.
I’m getting slightly panicky that all the summer fruit will be gone soon, so I may have bought too many peaches at the grocery store yesterday. I’m not sure what my rationale was, but I just felt like I had to buy them all. I was standing in the produce aisle and suddenly I imagined myself without those juicy, fleshy stone fruits and I felt sad. So I bought A LOT of them, like…A LOT! Maybe I’ll freeze a few and eat the rest while I write this post, win! *I’m on my 2nd peach while typing this paragraph*
So be warned, I’ll be including a few extra peach recipes in the next couple weeks, keep an eye out, they’ll be EVERYWHERE! Ha!
I’ll be making everything with peaches in the next few weeks…OK maybe not EVERYTHING but it’ll be close enough.
First up, this honey peach and bacon pizza for an easy last minute meal that can be whipped up in less than 30 minutes. Don’t you love that? Summer meals are meant to be easy and quick because no one wants to spend their time in a hot kitchen when the sun is shining and there are only a few short weeks left to enjoy it!
What is everyone up to this week? I’ll be spending it cooped up at work again, my days seem to be starting earlier and ending a lot later than intended, so I’ll be living vicariously through you. Do me a solid and let me know what awesome summer plans you’re trying to squeeze in so I can imagine myself there too, instead of thinking about my laundry list of to-do’s for work.
And then the long weekend will FINALLY be here, and I’ll be sneaking in some glorious R&R at my parent’s cottage. I’m so excited! All I have to do is power through this week and then I’ll have a semi-permanent glass of wine attached to my hands for 3 days. 3 beautifully HOT summer days (I hope!).
This honey, peach and bacon pizza would be perfect for the long weekend! You can cook it right on the grill or bake it in the oven to get a crispy crust. It doesn’t take long to assemble/bake so you’ll be biting into it in no time, I promise you that you’ll be thanking me after you make it! So what are you waiting for?
You need to put this on your long weekend menu NOW! Ugh, I sound demanding hey? Haha but can you blame me? The crust is crunchy but soft on the inside. It’s cheesy, sweet, salty and spicy (if you add the chllli flakes, which I strongly recommend you do!). Plus, did I mention BACON!!?? That should be the real reason to make it, because it’s crispy, salty and goes so well with the peaches. YUMMMMM!
