Grilled Peaches and Figs Pizza


Sorry, don't keep looking, I don't have a nice photo for this yummy recipe. Actually let me tell you that a few months ago I got a book- that I am planning to read and eventually use- on how to photograph food, but it is still sitting on one of my bookshelves. I have not yet figured out how to multi-task cooking and photography. It is always the same, I remember about the picture just when we finished eating, and I don't think a plate with crumbs will make a good photo. So I ask you to bear with me and use your imagination. Believe me this is very yummy!

You will need your favorite pizza dough, and for each pizza:

2 large ripe, but not too soft, peaches (cut in thick slices)
3 firm figs (cut in fourths)
Parmigian cheese, the real thing and thinly sliced. (as much as your family likes)
5 slices of prosciutto or jamón serrano.
some fresh leaves of basil.
olive oil.
pressed garlic for the base.
tomato paste.

Don't forget to pre-heat the oven at 250ºC (yes, it is your turn to do the math here, unless you are Canadian or Mexican like myself) Consider that most recipes will ask you to put your pizza dough in the oven for about 10 mins. before putting all the toppings.

Now, in a large skillet in high flame, grill the peaches and figs until caramelized (be careful, do not overcook!), can you just imagine the flavor! Well, get your bottle of olive oil and drizzle a little bit over it. Remove from the flame and set apart.

Spread tomato paste (not too much, I used only a little), garlic, some olive oil, the fruit, prosciutto, cheese, and basil (in that order) on top of your pizza (that by this time should be cooked somehow).

Bake for 15 mins or until cheese is soft. Real Parmigian cheese sliced won't melt like a Mozzarella, you want to keep that in mind.

Enjoy with a good glass of wine.

Life is a feast because God has set a table before His children; let us enjoy the good things He has provided for us!

My Photo
If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."


“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
