Blackberry & Goat Cheese Pizza

I’m at it again. I’m loving me some fruit on my pizza…I can’t help it! Who’s with me?

Creamy goat cheese (you know I love my goat cheese!) is paired with sweet blackberries and fresh lemon thyme from my potted herb garden. Also, I would like to take this moment to give myself a high-five. I haven’t killed my herb garden yet…hooray! Although, my plants were looking a little weak today. I forgot to water them on Sunday and some of mint got a little crispy. Let’s say a prayer for the leaves we lost and hope new ones grow fast!

I threw this little pizza together for lunch one afternoon but it would make a great appetizer or summer brunch. I think it would go perfectly with a sparkly glass of white wine.

Also, on a totally superficial level, doesn’t this pie just look pretty? We could all use a little pretty in our lives…right?

Have you ever tried fruit on your pizza? What’s your favorite fruity topping?


Blackberry and Goat Cheese Pizza


16 ounces pizza dough
Olive oil
8 ounces goat cheese
1/2 pint blackberries
Fresh lemon thyme
Fresh cracked pepper

Source: Nutmeg Nanny


Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.

Let dough reach room temperature and divide in half. Sprinkle a little corn meal on parchment lined baking sheet and pull out dough to create a small pizza. Do this with both pieces of dough.

Drizzle each pie with olive oil. Using a pastry brush spread it evenly over the dough. Top each pie with 4 ounces goat cheese and a few blackberries. Sprinkle with fresh lemon thyme and fresh cracked pepper.

Bake for 18 minutes until cheese is melted and dough is cooked through.

    I am loving the fruit on pizza thing. Joe and I are going to grill pizza soon and I convinced him to let me put fruit on it. I can’t wait. I also want to put fruit in pasta. Uh yum!

    If there’s one thing I love on pizza it’s goat cheese. And if there’s one thing I love with my goat cheese it’s fruit! So by some weird logic law that I learned in high school, I’m sure…I love this pizza!

    This is so lovely! Love the combo of the goat cheese and berries. You have me dreaming up all sorts of different fruits that I want to put on a pizza now, too. :)

    I’ve never really put fruit on my pizza, but I’d like to give you a high five too. Because blackberries are my favorite berry, goat cheese is the BOMB, and I also love using fresh thyme from my pot garden. It’s like you made this pizza for me!

    i’m not sure how i feel about this, as goat cheese and i have had our problems in the past. it seems like i either love it or i feel like i’m putting foot mold in my mouth. regardless of my issues, this is a beautiful pizza!

    Just tried making this for the first time tonight. Absolutely loved it! Definitely satisfied my goat cheese craving. Was thinking it might be fun to try adding peaches (or nectarines) in the summer! Thanks for sharing!
