PEACH CRUMBLE FRUIT PIZZA
On Friday, I dropped the girls off at my mom’s house and headed over to the grand opening of the new Busch’s Market in Brighton.
It’s about 20 minutes from her house and as much as I love listening to the Moana soundtrack while fielding 1,700 three year old questions (what do jelly fish eat??) (really, I do), the solo ride while listening to adult music was very welcomed.
This time, I was on the hunt for something to make for my dad’s birthday. I was inspired by the peaches that are in season and one of his favorites.
My Easter Egg Fruit Pizza has been a very popular post so I decided to do a spin-off with this Peach Crumble Fruit Pizza.
The best parts of a crumble combined with the ease of a pizza to give you a really easy and really flavorful dessert.
Back to my shopping trip – I love that Busch’s offers so many local products. There is a wide variety of fresh, local, organic products like eggs, dairy products, and vegetables. I grabbed some of the local produce to make dinner as well as the ingredients for this pizza.
They also have a huge prepared foods section and bakery (the oatmeal raisin cookie I had was delicious), all made in-house. I don’t recommend going on an empty stomach, you’ll be so tempted.
Or, if you’re not up for cooking dinner after grocery shopping, they’ve got you covered with the prepared foods.
Plus, there is a Starbucks in the market for a drink while you shop.
Tips for making this Peach Crumble Fruit Pizza a success…
- Use fresh peaches. They’re in season now and delicious.
- To easily remove the skins from the peaches, place them in boiling water for about 45 seconds then dip them in cold water. The skins should peel right off. Here’s a full tutorial from Barbara Bakes.
- If peaches aren’t in season when you’re reading this, you can use canned. A 29 oz can should do, just drain the liquid and pat them dry before assembling.
