Berry Pizza for July 4th


A few weeks ago, I came across this pin for summer berry pizza.  It looked good, so I decided it would be dessert on the Fourth of July.  It’s pretty easy as it uses a store bought pizza dough and only a few ingredients.  The only one we didn’t have as mascarpone cheese.  Of course, when I went to buy the cheese, I didn’t write down how much I needed.  Turns out that while it comes in 8 oz. tubs, we needed 16 oz., so I had to get my mom to bring more before I could finish it!  Each tub costs about $4.99 in my neck of the woods, so it really turned out to be more expensive to make than I thought it would be.

The pizza dough we had was for thin crust and required a nonstick pan and a lower temperature.  I went by what the dough directions said instead of the blog’s instructions, though I wound up keeping it in the oven for 9 minutes because it didn’t seem to be as browned as it should be.

I didn’t have any blueberries, so I only used strawberries.  It still tasted good!  The only thing I noticed about the recipe that seemed off was the glaze:  I had covered the pizza with drizzle, and I still had some left.  I think the recipe should really be halved.

I thought it was delicious, as did my mom.  The kids had mixed reviews.  My son (Mr. Sweet Tooth) liked it pretty well, but my daughter didn’t care for the crust (said it was too firm), and her friend didn’t like the texture of the cheese.  What this basically means is that I wound up eating most of the leftovers, which was okay with me!   However, the leftovers did get a bit soggy with the drizzle soaking into the crust.  If you can make it for enough people that you will have few (if any) leftovers, that would probably be for the best.  Bon appetit!
