Servings: 3 People
- prepared dough
- olive oil
- 1 large triangle of brie cheese (rinds removed and sliced)
- 12-14 sweet cherries (halved and pitted)
- 8-10 mint leaves (chopped)
- 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
- To prepare balsamic reduction, place vinegar in small saucepan, bring to boil, reduce heat and allow it to simmer for 5 minutes. Keep a close eye as it reduces by half quickly. Once thickened, remove from heat and cool. The reduction should have the consistency of syrup.
- Preheat grill for medium high heat. On floured surface, roll out prepared dough for 1/2 inch thickness. Transfer to lightly floured cookie sheet.
- Place onto grill and cook for 1 1/2 minutes, or until bottom starts to brown. Flip over, and cook for 30 seconds. Remove from grill, place onto cookie sheet and allow to cool slightly.
- Drizzle cooked side with olive oil. Place brie slices all over crust, top with cherries, and chopped mint. Reduce heat to medium, place pizza back on grill and cook for 3-5 minutes until crust has cooked though and brie has melted.
- To serve, drizzle pizza with balsamic reduction, garnish with additional chopped mint (optional), slice and enjoy.
