Peach, Basil, and Brie French Bread Pizzas
Sexy is in!
Better than sex cake? (That’s up to you).
… But I heard that few fruits are as sweet, succulent or downright sexy as a peach.
With all of these ideas that you can cook or bake at home I’m wondering why people don’t do it more often!? I mean, I get that you might live near an incredible thai restaurant and LIVE for the blueberry muffins from the local bakery–but when was the last time you made a meal made you feel like a total goddess?
Fortunately for you, I have a 15 minute solution. It requires peaches, french bread, brie cheese, basil, and a little balsamic vinegar.
You’re about to be sexed up.
Seriously I mean it.
Alright you should probably know that I’m a complete romantic. I believe that food has total sex appeal that can’t be ignored. Flipping pancakes for dinner is perfect. The smell of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies makes me swoon. Authentic mexican food wins my heart. But putting fresh peaches on pizza? Oh my goodness I can’t even describe it.
But sometimes simplicity is good. Like homemade pizza and a glass of red wine for dinner. I don’t know why but it screams irresistible to me.
Now you’re probably reading this through a computer or some tablet that I’ve never heard of, so I can’t do much convincing. But I can tell you this: cooking is attractive, pizzas are delicious, and making this for an appetizer (or dinner) will be the best thing you’ve done in weeks. And the best part about it? It’s not complicated or fussy — it’s just delicious!
French bread toasted to perfection with loads of creamy brie cheese, ripe peaches, fresh basil, and a little balsamic reduction. Because what’s better than enjoying a meal cooked especially for you? (Well probably devouring 5 of these ice cream cones, actually.) But that’s besides the point–the problem is that many of us don’t make time to eat, drink, and enjoy time with the people we love.
So single or not – Make pizza, drink wine, enjoy life! Get your sexy back.
Fresh Peach, Basil, & Brie Cheese French Bread Pizza
1 french bread loaf (preferably whole grain), sliced in half, lengthwise
2-3 ripe peaches, pitted and thinly sliced
4 ounces of Brie cheese, thinly sliced (I used goat’s milk brie cheese from Trader Joe’s)
2 tablespoons freshly chopped basil
2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
1 cup balsamic vinegar
dash of salt
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Place bread on baking sheet and brush olive oil over each half. Sprinkle with a dash of salt. Top each half with brie cheese slices and peaches. Bake for 10 minutes. Broil for 30 seconds until cheese gets a tiny bit brown and bubbly.
Place vinegar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat; cook until reduced to 2 tablespoons (about 5 minutes).
Drizzle balsamic reduction evenly over pizza and top with basil. Cut pizza into wedges and serve.
