There are few things better during the warmer months than a big juicy peach! Peaches are one of my favorite fruits and I get gitty this time of year when they start to be in season. I was sipping Southern Breeze Sweet Teas‘ new peach flavored (and sugar free) sweet tea outside on our patio and thought of ways I could cook with peaches other than in your standard fruit salad/desserts. It took me back to the delicious peach flatbread I had at Vintage Restaurant, in New Market, MD. Naturally the peach tea inspired me to recreate the flatbread but with my own twist.
As far as the flatbread goes, you can make your own (try my recipe for pizza dough here) and pre-bake before placing on the grill or you can cheat like I did and grab some pre-made flatbread from you local bakery. (try wheat flatbread for a healthier option)
For the pesto sauce- I have a great homemade recipe. Check out how to make your own homemade pesto- here!
