Mike and I snuck down to Sanibel for a few days and while I was reading some magazines on the beach, I came across this oh-so-tempting Peach Chutney Pizza with Prosciutto in Coastal Living Magazine.
The ingredient list is a bit extensive, so I waited until we got home to make the recipe. And, although it takes a little time, it is one of the most flavorful pizza recipes I’ve ever had!
The prosciutto and the peaches play very well together with their sweet and salty flavors. The kick of the red onion and crushed red pepper flakes introduces a nice touch of spiciness and the tangy goat cheese pretty much ties it all together.
Let me know if you try it!
