Nectarine-Arugula Pizza

One of my favorite pizza places in Berkeley is the Cheeseboard, which serves only one kind of pizza each day--always something different, creative, and delicious! They're currently in a two-week vacation, but on the last day of pizza, we picked up some truly amazing slices--"Fresh Peaches and Nectarines, Mozzarella Cheese, Ricotta Salata, Arugula w/ Vinaigrette." They were so tasty that my housemate Jessie and I wanted to recreate this pizza at home. Jessie was the chef on this one; I just helped with inspiration. ;)

To make this pizza, start with a base of Martha Stewart's pizza dough. When it's ready to go, top with olive oil, goat cheese, thinly sliced nectarines, cubed goat cheese, caramelized onions, sauteed arugula, and a bit of mozzarella. Yum!

  1. Amazing pizza!Thanks for sharing.

  2. Interesting combination. Arugula is one of my top ten food favorites! It has been ages since I had a pizza.

  3. i wanted to go to the cheeseboard that day but i was with someone who refused to try fruit on pizza. i was so disappointed. your version looks great!

  4. I'll try this since I'm 2,000+ miles from the Cheeseboard and missin' it! Nectarines are juicy and ripe to perfection at the Rittman Orchard here in Ohio!
