Peachy Pizza

Invite a friend round for a pizza then give her a crazy surprise!
It wont be what she's expecting and you'll see her widen her eyes!
No cheese, no bacon, no olives! Well, nothing Italian at all!
No savoury, sizzling aromas to waft to her nose down the hall.
For this is the sweetest of pizzas! Yes, this is a peach of a pie.
A wonderful treat for the summer when peaches are in top supply.
For the crust take the butter and sugar and mix in the flour with a will;
Then press in a pizza pan firmly. (There! That didn't take too much skill!)
Let it cook fifteen minutes (350) and then set aside. Let it cool.
Then brush it with jam that you've melted; I use some peach jam as a rule.
Beat together the rind and the cream cheese, with the whipping cream there in the mix.
It will thicken and blend very quickly. (So that was quite easy to fix!)
Take six peaches and peel them and slice them. (Yes, take out the pitted parts too)
And arrange them on top of the cream cheese as the pastry-chefs all seem to do.
Make a glaze out of juice, jam and sugar, with some cornstarch to help it all blend,
Then boil it all up till it thickens. Don't worry! You're right at the end!
Paint it over your pizza to glaze it, let it cool and sit down and admire!
You'll agree it's a peach presentation! And you didn't even perspire!
