Ingredients

2 cups (500 mL) bread flour (approx.)
1 pkg (8 g) quick-rise (instant yeast) yeast
1 tsp (5 mL) sea salt
1 tsp (5 mL) granulated sugar
1 cup (250 mL) warm water (120 to 130°F/50 to 55°C)
3 tbsp (45 mL) olive oil, divided
1 cup (250 mL) sliced Little Qualicum Island Bries
1 large peach, cut into wedges
3/4 cup (175 mL) shredded L’Ancêtre Mozzarella
Arugula leaves
Sea salt and cracked black pepper

Pesto:
1 1/4 cup (300 mL) packed fresh basil leaves
1 1/4 cup (300 ) packed stemmed arugula
1/3 cup (75 mL) olive oil
1/4 cup (60 mL) grated Canadian Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp (30 mL) toasted pine nuts, almonds or cashews
1/4 tsp (1 mL) sea salt
1/4 tsp (1 mL) cracked black pepper
1/2 tsp (2 mL) grated lemon zest

Preparation

In a large bowl combine flour, undissolved yeast, salt and sugar. Stir in water and 2 tbsp (30 mL) of oil; mix until well combined. If necessary, add more flour to make a soft dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 4 minutes. Cover and let rest on floured surface 25 minutes.

Pesto: Meanwhile, in a food processor, pulse together basil, arugula, oil, Parmesan Cheese, pine nuts, salt, and pepper until finely chopped. Stir in lemon zest. Measure out ½ cup (125 mL) and reserve remaining pesto for another use.

Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C). Lightly grease a large baking sheet.

On lightly floured surface, roll out dough to desired shape, about ¼-inch (5 mm) thick. Place on prepared baking sheet. Evenly spread ½ cup (125 mL) of pesto over dough. Top with Brie, peaches and Mozzarella.

Bake in preheated oven until golden and bubbly, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Top with arugula leaves; drizzle remaining 1 tbsp (15 mL) of oil (optional) and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Tips

This pizza is delicious warm or cold (room temp); if you make it ahead of time, you can re-heat it in the oven.

Save on time and pick up ready-made pizza dough, about 1 lb (500 g).

Chopped deli meats, such as honey ham or prosciutto could be added. Apricots, plums or pears would work as well instead of the peaches

Try making the pesto with baby spinach instead of arugula.

Try it with your own favourite Canadian Brie and Mozzarella instead.
