This sponsored recipe is brought to you by BC Tree Fruits. They’ve kindly compensated monetarily me to develop this post – and I couldn’t be more thrilled to bring you a delicious peaches recipe!
Moving to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches… the classic rock song celebrating peach season has been on repeat at my house as I develop this delicious recipe for a Peach and Prosciutto Grilled Flatbread.
Eating seasonally can add so much fun and inspiration to your cooking. There’s nothing I love more than buying a flat of fruit, and experimenting – eating it every-which-way I can imagine! BC Tree Fruits peaches typically come to market last week of July and are available until the first week of September – giving you a little more than a month to get your fill of peaches in! But don’t worry – if you want peaches year round – they’re the perfect fruit for canning.
For me, connecting with my local producers and farmers is so important. What I LOVE about BC Tree Fruits is that it’s actually a cooperative – over 430 local BC grower families produce tons of different seasonal tree fruits for us including apples, cherries, pears, peaches, nectarines, apricots, prunes, plums and grapes!
I’ve always been in to grilling fruit for dessert, but today I wanted to bring you a twist on the classic ‘ham and pineapple’ pizza – and give you a SERIOUS upgrade to delicious peaches.

- 2 BC Tree Fruits Peaches, sliced

Recipe Tips and Tricks
- Choose soft, picked when ripe peaches, like BC Tree Fruits peaches – they’re the juiciest! Look for their BC Tree Fruits leaf sticker to find the perfect peaches
- If you don’t have balsamic glaze, you can simply reduce balsamic on the stove until desired consistency. If your balsamic is not aged, you may need to add a splash of honey for sweetness
- Want to amp up the veg? Add a handful of fresh arugula
- Make it vegetarian by omitting the prosciutto. You could also add smoked tofu!
