To Reduce Balsamic Vinegar
1 cup dark balsamic vinegar*
1. In a saucepan, cook balsamic vinegar over low heat for 20-25 minutes or until reduced to about half (1/2 cup), stirring occasionally. Be careful not to let the balsamic over reduce and burn.
*This may make more balsamic vinegar than is needed for the Summeripe Peach Caprese skewers, feel free to add reduced balsamic vinegar to taste and store the rest of the balsamic reduction in a jar in the refrigerator for up to 6 months
Our Summeripe Grilled Plum Pizza is quick, easy, and savory way to enjoy delicious Summeripe plums or pluots!
2 Summeripe Plumcots or Plums, pitted & cut into thin wedges. May add or substitute with nectarines and/or peaches.
1 thin pizza crust or flatbread
3–4 tablespoons Pesto Sauce (we love to use kale based pesto sauce but traditional pesto is great as well)
1 small yellow onion, sliced into thin rings
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes in extra virgin olive oil, diced
1 1/2 ounces prosciutto, cut or torn into 1 inch pieces
2–3 ounces of fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into thin pieces
2 ounces parmigiano-reggiano cheese, grated
3 tablespoons olive oil
Preheat grill to medium high heat.
Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a cast iron skillet on the gas grill or stove top, sauté the onions until brown and caramelized. Remove skillet from the heat and toss the diced sun-dried tomatoes into skillet and toss with the onions. Set aside.
Spread 1 tablespoon of olive oil on the pizza crust. Place directly onto the hot grill until lightly brown and warm on both sides of pizza crust, a couple of minutes.
Remove pizza crust to a work surface and spread pesto sauce on one side of the crust. Top mozzarella cheese, sautéed onion and sun-dried tomato mixture, prosciutto, parmigiano-reggiano cheese and plumcot wedges evenly onto the crust.
Place pizza crust back onto hot grill until warm and cheese is melted, 5-10 minutes. Let cool. Slice, serve, & enjoy!
