Blackberry Goat Cheese Pizza

This blackberry goat cheese pizza is the perfect combination of sweet and savory. It’s perfect for a light lunch or even a delicious appetizer. 

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?
