  • Extra- virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • Fresh herbs (a few basil or oregano leaves)
  • ½ teaspoon (2 mL) red pepper flakes
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


Yield: Serves 4

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Assemble the naan or pita bread with the white cheddar cheese, zucchini, squash blossoms, cherry tomatoes, peaches, and feta cheese. Bake until the cheese is golden brown and the peaches and zucchini are tender, about 15 minutes.
