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?

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.
