Mint Pesto Pizza with Grilled Chicken, Peaches and Provolone


This pizza is inspired by one I had a few summers ago at a charming little cafe in Raleigh, NC, called Zest. I remembered loving the fact that there were peaches on the pizza and with the pesto, they provided a really nice contrast. It may sound odd, but all of the components come together really beautifully. I also thought it might be fun to try making a mint pesto for the base. It makes for a great late summer pizza.
