Dinner in 10 – Peach Pita Pizza

Last night was crazy! Between working until after 6:30pm, rushing home to walk Leo and rushing straight to my condo Board meeting at 7:30pm, I didn’t have much time for dinner. In fact, I didn’t even get to think about dinner until 8:45pm when I got home from my Board meeting!

When I got home I really didn’t want to make anything, however, we didn’t have anything easy to grab. Well I guess we had granola and yogurt but that just didn’t sound like dinner to me. Right now, our fridge is a miscellaneous mix of food. There are a lot of good items, however, not the easiest combination of ingredients to come up with dinner options. Side note: I am still trying to learn how to grocery shop. I always say I am going to make a list and have meals for the week planned, however, that has yet to happen! Some day I will figure it out 🙂

Sorry, got distracted, back to dinner…after looking in the fridge for inspiration I decided I again needed to do something with peaches as we have a lot and a few are getting SUPER ripe! I know, hard to have to eat peaches 🙂 I also noticed we had some pita bread in the fridge that really, really, really needed to be used. Based on those two items it all of a sudden hit me…Peach Pita Pizza!!!

I have been wanting to make a peach pizza for a while now. I saw it on Pinterest a few weeks back and ever since it has been on my mind so last night was my chance. Well, OK, it wasn’t really pizza, however, it was a pizza style dish. Here is a picture I snapped on my phone of how dinner turned out. Not the best picture but it gives you an idea of what it looked like. See below for my recipe.

Recipe:

  • 1 Pita
  • 1 Peach (cut into 1 in chunks)
  • 1/4 cup ricotta cheese (total guess as I didn’t measure – probably was a little less or more depending on how you like it)
  • Honey (to taste)
  • 5 basil leaves (thinly sliced)

Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread ricotta on pita and top with peaches. Drizzle a little bit of honey over peaches and pita. Cook for 5-7 minutes or until heated. Top with basil.

I wasn’t sure how this was going to turn out, but thankfully it was good! Felt like I was having dinner and dessert all at once! This was super easy and quick. I think it took me about 10 minutes in total (not counting the time it took me to figure out what the heck to make).

If you want a quick easy dinner, I highly recommend giving this a go. I still want to try an official Peach Pizza one of these days but until then this totally hit the spot!

Enjoy!
