PhotobucketPlease trust me before your start feeling weird about this combination. I can tell you, it’s really, really tasty.

I made this with our homemade peach barbecue sauce and some frozen peaches from our 34lb. box of Utah peaches, but it would be fantastic with just about any tomato-based barbecue sauce (I wouldn’t go mustard- or vinegar-based here). The sweetness of the peaches compliments the saltiness of the ham and mozzarella, and the tanginess of the barbecue sauce. The cilantro rounds out all the other flavors and was such a nice finish.

I didn’t give any specific amounts here, because everyone prefers their pizza differently–more or less sauce or cheese, etc. Make it your own. And, really, dear reader. Give it a try! It’s delicious.

BBQ Pizza with Peaches and Ham


  • 1 pizza crust*
  • 1/21c barbecue sauce (or more, to taste)
  • 12c shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ham
  • sliced peaches (frozen are ok)
  • cilantro


  1. Place pizza crust on baking sheet and spread with barbecue sauce. Sprinkle with cheese, as many slices of ham as you like, and as many peach slices as you like.
  2. Bake at 450 degrees about 10 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and beginning to brown. Remove pizza from oven and sprinkle with fresh cilantro.
  3. Makes one cookie sheet size pizza.


*For crispier crust (which I prefer), pre-bake your crust at 450 degrees 8-10 minutes before spreading with barbecue sauce and toppings.



  1. Great combination: peaches and ham go perfect together and I love your idea of putting them on a pizza! I only skip the cilantro (sorry, really dislike it) part, but besides that: love it!

  2. Cooking is the art of mixing together to create something tasty. I love how you invent, create and try out new ingredients and unique combinations to come up with wonderful recipes. A must try…I go for more cheese and a crunchier crust. Thanks for always having vibrant posts!

  3. I saw this recipe and I am really intersting in this pizza
    however the recipe does not show the real amount of the ingredient
    so how should I know how much of the ham I should use and how much of the peach I should use for this pizza
    can you give me a hint
    thank you

    1. Ting Wu–you can use however much you prefer, but for a starting point, I used about 6oz of ham and a little over a cup of peaches. I hope that helps!
