Fresh Berry Pizza

July 23, 2009


While we were traveling in California, we ate at a restaurant that used nothing but local produce for their dishes. It was a treat to eat in such a place, and I so wish that we had something like that here in Colorado (I am sure that we actually do, I just need to find it).

As we were getting ready to leave, the table next to us was served a berry pizza that looked so yummy, I almost sat back down at the table and ordered it. I wanted to try and recreate the recipe, and I stared at the pizza so long to try and figure out what they had used to make it, that I am pretty sure that the people who ordered it were afraid I might grab it and run. I did also have a chance to ask the waiter how it was made, so I got a few pointers of putting this together.

My first try was a pretty good one, and we enjoyed it last night with some friends over a long evening outside. I made homemade gluten free pizza dough, and used fresh raspberries and blueberries to top it off. I might tweak a few things about the time that it was in the oven, because the ends got just a little bit too dark, but besides that, it came out pretty perfect. It can be used with any fresh pizza dough, and personally, I think that it could be topped with just about anything you could imagine.

Fresh Berry Pizza

1/2 of a recipe of fresh pizza dough (so basically enough to make one pizza with)
Raspberries and Blueberries (or any other seasonal fruit)
1T of Olive Oil and 1 T of Butter melted and mixed together
4 T of Granulated sugar
Confectioners sugar for dusting on top (optional, but really yummy)

  • Make your dough and let it rise what ever the normal time calls for.
  • Using enough dough for one pizza, roll out dough until shape desired, but make sure that your pizza ends are not too thin.
  • Line a baking pan with parchment paper and place dough onto it
  • Let the dough rest for a few minutes
  • Brush dough with butter and oil mixture and then top dough with 2 T of granulated sugar
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes
  • Remove from oven, spread desired fruit over top, and top the fruit with the rest of the sugar
  • Bake until the fruit has released it’s juices, and the edges are golden brown
  • Let cool just a bit, and sprinkle with confectioners sugar

and enjoy!!

I, too, would be delighted to receive your GF pizza dough recipe … I'm newly celiac and am having challenges finding bread recipes that aren't too sweet (likely from the rice flour content).
