Southern White Chocolate, Pecan & Peach Pizza

Hey Friends! I’m taking advantage of a few moments without my little shadow (she’s playing in the sprinkler with her daddy) to share my take on a Lexington restaurant’s summer dessert pizza. I actually came up with this recipe last summer and it has become one of our favorites to use peaches we get at our local farmer’s market. We’ve taken to calling it the “Scarlett-Oh!” pizza because the combination of peaches with white chocolate chips and pecans is so Southern and decadent that you’ll catch yourself saying “fiddlsticks” when it’s all gone. You’ll need:

Pizza:

1 box of prepared pie crusts
2-3 fresh peaches, skinned and diced
1/2 cup white chocolate chip morsels
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Crumb Topping:

1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon apple pie spice
1/2 stick butter or margarine

1.  Heat oven to 375 degrees and set out pie crusts. Once the pie crusts are room temperature, spread the first crust on a pizza stone or pan. Press the second crust down onto the first, sealing the crusts together to make one. Create a scalloped edge by pressing the sides with your finger.

2. Spread the peaches and some of the white chocolate chips and pecans over the pizza.

3. In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients for the crumb topping together then cut in the butter until you have coarse crumbs. Spread the crumb mixture over the pizza then top with the remaining white chocolate chips and pecans.

4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, being careful not to burn the white chocolate chips. After 15 minutes, you may want to put a sheet of tin foil over your pizza to prevent any scorching of the white chocolate.

5. Serve with ice cream. And a curtsy. You won’t be able to help yourself, I do declare.
