Peaches are great for dessert, but on this peach and pesto pizza, they're fantastic. The crust is covered in a delicious, garlicky basil pesto, two kinds of vegan cheese, and then it's baked until the peaches are slightly roasted and topped with a balsamic glaze. You get a crunchy crust, cool basil, cheesiness, sweet slices of peach, and a tart drizzle of balsamic glaze in every bite.
