Zucchini Peach Pizza Details
Pineapple is an oft-maligned topping for pizza. I honestly don’t have strong feelings about it, but there are much better options fruit options in my book. Enter: nectarine and peaches! In the heat of the summer, juicy stone fruit is a perfect pairing for creamy, herbaceous homemade pizzas. Today, we’re pairing it with another summer favorite, zucchini, for a fresh and colorful pie (you can easily make on the grill, too).
As the base of this recipe we’re using my Easiest Flatbread, but feel free to use store-bought dough as well! With pre-made dough, this recipe can be ready in just 35 minutes.
I almost named this a “green goddess pizza” as the white cream sauce actually has a bright green hue from the blended parsley. True green goddess dressing has mayonnaise (not my thing) so we’re keeping this title simple.

Yes! Juicy peaches contrast nicely with richer ingredients like creamy cheese. They maintain a good bit of freshness when baked and add a pop of flavor to the most traditional pizza options.
Cashews and nondairy milk form the base of this creamy sauce, while nutritional yeast, lemon juice, fresh herbs, and garlic powder provide the flavor.
Heat the grill to medium-high. Spread 1-2 TBS of olive oil on both sides of the dough. Stretch into a pie shape and lay on top of the grill grates, sprinkle with a bit of salt, and close the lid. Let cook for 3-5 minutes. Using tongs or a fork, flip the flatbread. Add sauce and toppings as suggested above, close the lid, and let cook 10 minutes more. Remove from the grill, let cool for a couple of minutes, and serve.
