One of the great things about this recipe for Spicy Peaches and Brie Pizza is that you can take the help of the grocery store. Pizza night has never been so easy and so delicious!
- Pizza Dough - Store bought pizza dough works great for this recipe. You can usually find fresh dough in the bakery section of your grocery store.
- Peaches - Celebrate the peak of peach season. You want to use ripe, fresh peaches for this recipe.
- Spicy chili crisp - This spicy condiment combines fried chili peppers with aromatics such as garlic and shallots. It not only brings heat, it also gives umami and crunch. Use your favorite brand.
- Honey - The honey enhances the sweetness of the peaches and balanaces out the heat of the chili crisp.
- Brie Cheese - Molten, creamy, and decadent, this will become irresistibly creamy as it bakes.
- Pesto - For an herbaceous pop that brings freshness, feel free to use your favorite storebought brand, or homemade.
- Microgreens - Give your pizza a fresh pop at the end with your favorite microgreens.

Bake it UpTransfer your pizza to a baking sheet or pizza stone. Allow it to bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.
Finishing TouchAllow your pizza to cool slightly. Garnish with microgreens and enjoy!
- Camembert - You can replace the brie with Camembert cheese which is also a soft, creamy, surface ripened cheese.

- Nectarines - Use what fruit is ripe and fresh. If the nectarines look good that day they will give you a similar flavor profile.
Peaches and summertime go hand in hand, and nothing says summer like grilling. This same recipe can easily be made on your grill. Make sure your grill is fully heated and your grates are lightly oiled if you add your pizza directly to the grill. A pizza stone and baking sheet will also work on the grill.
Whether you're cooking your pizza in the oven or on the grill, the only special equipment you'll need is a baking sheet or pizza stone. If you're using a pizza stone, make sure to preheat it in the oven before adding your pizza.
Top Tip for Spicy Peaches and Brie Pizza
If you've ever struggled trying to stretch out pizza dough, it's because it wasn't properly rested first. The glutens in cold dough are tight and bounce back, making it difficult to form your crust. When you allow the dough to sit out at room temperature, you will have a soft and supple dough that is easy to work with.
