Cheesy Peach Pizza

Dear El + Em, 
For some reason, in which I do NOT understand....neither of you were digging this incredibly delicious pizza tonight. You both like when I make plain white pizza. You both love peaches. I'm confused, but then again you were both ganging up on Daddy and I today in an effort to drive us nuts. Congrats, you both succeeded in doing so. The rest of us gobbled this pizza up (of course)!!! I will be making this again, and something tells me that you both will have a change of heart as long as you aren't wearing your cranky pants!
Pizza Dough (I buy mine from the bakery section at Publix)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil - 1 tbsp.
Ricotta - 1 1/2 cups 
Parmesan Cheese - 3 tbsp (grated)
1 Clove of garlic - crushed
Fresh Mozzarella - Sliced 
1 Peach - Sliced
Salt and Pepper 
Fresh (or dried) Herbs - basil, thyme, oregano - whatever you have on hand
1 peach - sliced

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
2. Roll out the dough. I usually like to make my pizza pretty thin so there's more surface area for cheese!
3. Brush the dough with extra virgin olive oil.
4. In a bowl, combine ricotta, grated parmesan cheese, crushed garlic, salt and pepper to taste, and whatever herbs you have on hand (I save some herbs for garnish when the pizza is done. 
5. Generously put dollops of ricotta mixture on pizza dough.
6. Top with sliced fresh mozzarella and sliced peaches. 
7. Cook for 18-25 minutes. I use a pampered chef pizza stone, and in about 23 minutes my thin pizza crust was nice and crunchy!
8. Sprinkle with additional herbs for garnish and ENJOY!

***Side note - this would probably be amazing with a drizzle of reduced balsamic vinegar! I didn't have any for tonight...but next time! (Ooooooh maybe that's what the girls were missing!!!)
Seeeeee! Ella was VERY excited about these peaches a little more than 24 hours prior! She  literally begged to take them home!
