Gather the Ingredients for grilled peach and mozzarella flatbread

For this grilled peach and mozzarella flatbread, you need a few simple ingredients that will bring tons of flavor to our dish. Naan flatbreads serve as the sturdy base; you can use pita bread as well. Ripe peaches bring a sweet and slightly tangy flavor, while grilling them with olive oil further enhances their sweetness and makes their texture even creamier. Flaky sea salt enhances the overall taste. Fresh mozzarella provides a creamy and milky contrast, and chopped hazelnuts deliver a satisfying crunch. Drizzling honey on the final dish imparts sweetness and a hint of floral notes, and fresh basil leaves contribute a burst of freshness and aroma. With so few ingredients, each plays a crucial role in creating this balanced and delightful dish.

Grilling the peaches

First, brush your ripe peaches with a tablespoon of olive oil and grill them on a cast iron pan set to medium heat until they are slightly browned. Grilling the peaches enhances their natural sweetness and adds a subtle smoky flavor. It also softens their texture, making them juicier and sweeter. We recommend that you use a grill pan on the stovetop for those lovely grill marks! If you prefer, you can also grill the peaches on an outdoor grill — simply cook them for 2-3 minutes directly on the grill.

Assembling and baking the flatbread

Brush each naan flatbread with some olive oil and sprinkle them with a pinch of flaky sea salt. This step provides a crispy, flavorful base for your toppings. However, you can experiment with different flatbread varieties if you like (pita bread or garlic naan also works really well!).

For the cheesy touch, tear fresh mozzarella into pieces and evenly place them on top of the flatbreads. This creamy cheese will melt in the oven, creating a satisfying contrast with the crunchy hazelnuts and juicy peaches. If you want a more melty and gooey texture, you can use shredded mozzarella instead.

To top your flatbreads, slice the grilled peaches and evenly arrange them, along with the chopped hazelnuts, on top of the flatbreads. The combination of hazelnuts and peaches adds a crunch and nutty flavor to your flatbread. For variety, you can swap hazelnuts for almonds or walnuts, depending on your preference. Once topped, transfer the flatbreads to the oven and bake them on a grill/broil setting for about 5 minutes.

Top with honey and basil

Once your flatbreads come out of the oven, they're ready to serve. To finish, drizzle some honey over each flatbread, sprinkle with flaky salt, and add fresh basil leaves for a burst of freshness. These final touches provide a sweet and savory balance, and the basil adds a fragrant aroma.

Now, it's time to enjoy your creation. Serve the flatbreads immediately to savor the full range of flavors and textures while they're at their best. If you have any leftovers, you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. To reheat, you can use the oven or microwave, but keep in mind that reheating may slightly alter the texture of the flatbread, so fresh servings are recommended for the best experience.
