Grilled Peach and Chicken Pizza with Fresh Basil
  1. In a food processor or blender, combine the ⅓ cup olive oil, 2 cups basil, almonds, Parmesan, garlic, and salt. Cover and process or blend until nearly smooth, stopping and scraping the sides as necessary. Add enough additional olive oil (about 2 tablespoons) to reach the desired consistency. Season to taste with pepper. Set aside.

  2. Place the dough circles on the rack of a charcoal or gas grill directly over medium heat. Cover and grill for 2 minutes. Turn over and remove from the grill.

  3. Spread the pesto evenly over the tops of the pizzas. Top with chicken and cheese. Return the pizzas to the grill. Cover and grill for 3 to 4 minutes or until the crust is crisp and the toppings are heated through.

  4. Top the pizzas with peaches and basil leaves.

  5. *Note: Alternatively, you can use 2, 12-inch packaged thin pizza crusts (such as Boboli®). Omit the first 2-minute grilling step. Spread the crusts with pesto and add chicken, peaches, and cheese. Grill, covered, for 3 to 4 minutes or until heated through.
