Loved It! Nectarine, Goat Cheese and Balsamic Pizza

I must start this post with a warning.  Once you make this pizza you may never be able to stop. Stop making it or stop eating it?  Both.  It's oh so easy to assemble and only takes about 20 minutes to bake.  
Shall we begin?

I don't bother making my own pizza dough.  If you do then I applaud your ambition.  I'm just too darn lazy.  I prefer the pre-made dough at Grand Central Bakery but if you don't live near one of those, Trader Joe's also has great dough. 
All you will need besides the dough is:
  • One Nectarine, sliced
  • Basil 
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Goat Cheese (herbed or plain)
  • Shredded Italian Cheese Mix
  • EVOO (extra virgin olive oil. I'm embarassed to tell you how many times at the restaurant I had to ask if those were Roman Numerals....)

Pre-heat oven to 450 (or whatever the packaged directions say) Now all you have to do is assemble.  First start with the olive oil. Spread a nice layer of that all over. Now sprinkle with the mixed cheeses. Next are the nectarines, followed by goat cheese. Drizzle with the balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle some more mixed cheese. Stick in the oven. Just 5 minutes before it's done, take out, layer the basil on top, stick back in the oven. Let cook for the remaining 5 minutes.  Enjoy!


  1. This is ridiculous! My mouth is watering and it's 8:02am!

  2. This looks soooooo delicious! I'm even too darm lazy to use a pre-made dough :P

  3. I love gems like this! I can't wait to try it out! When fall comes, you have to try the pizza toppings: evoo and garlic, butternut squash (or acorn), fresh rosemary, almond slivers and goat cheese. Sounds weird but it will blow your mind!

  4. this looks amazing, I definitely need to try it!
