Peach and Prosciutto Three Cheese Pizza

Last week, I talked to you all about my recent trip to Belkin Family Lookout Farm. I even convinced a few friends of mine to head there on their own peach picking trip. One thing that I always do as soon as I go fruit picking is to look for recipes that I can make with that fruit. Usually I look through Pinterest and recipe websites that I love.

I also learned after going there that apparently this farm is actually one of the oldest continuous working farms in the country. It has been used as a farm in one person’s ownership or another since 1650. So there’s your little fun fact for the day.
