30+ Vegetarian Summer Recipes: Grilled Peach Flatbread
- Heat grill (or grill pan) over medium heat, around 375°F. If using grill grates, ensure grates are clean. Brush sides of sliced peaches with oil, also brush the grill grates with a little bit of oil to prevent sticking.
- Place peach slices on grates on their sides. After about one minute of cooking, push the slices gently back and forth to ensure they're not sticking to the grates. Continue cooking for approximately 2-3 additional minutes on each side, until grill marks appear and peaches are slightly caramelized. Remove from grill and set aside.
- Brush top of naan with oil, and place top side down on the grill. Brush the back of naan with oil while the top cooks. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the top has grill marks and is slightly crispy.
- Flip the flatbread over, so it's bottom side down to assemble. You can also remove it from the grill to assemble. Spread pesto evenly across the two flatbreads, then add burrata pieces (that you have drained and pat dry!). Close the grill lid, or cover if using a grill pan, and let cook for 3-4 minutes until burrata is slightly melted and edges are golden brown.
- Remove the flatbread from the grill and add peaches back on flatbread. Top the pizzas with a handful of arugula, black pepper, flakey sea salt, and a drizzle of honey. Slice and enjoy!
- If your pesto is extra oily, try to leave out the excess oil or your pizza will end up soggy. Additionally, be sure to pat the burrata dry to prevent excess liquid on the pizza.
- Use a grill pan on the stove if you don’t have/want to grill.
- Oven Directions: At 375°F, place a pizza stone in the oven and put the naan on top to crisp. Then, spread the pesto and burrata on top of the flatbread, continuing to cook for 3-5 minutes until cheese is melted and the edges are golden brown. You can either add the peaches here, too or caramelize them first (recommended) on the stovetop using a grill pan or cast-iron skillet. Proceed with cooking the peaches and assembly as written above.
