Sweet Pizza with Mascarpone and Blackberries

Sweet pizza with mascarpone and blackberries is great to bake and share. The combination of vanilla-infused mascarpone, baked fruit and just a drizzle of chocolate work wonders in this recipe for dessert pizza.

Ingredients

  • 425 g Beer pizza dough the equivalent of 2 portions
  • 24 Blackberries
  • 2 tbsp Mascarpone cheese
  • 1 tbsp Caster sugar
  • 3/4 tsp Vanilla bean paste
  • 1 tbsp Flaked almonds
  • 1/2 tbsp Butter melted
  • 30 g Milk chocolate
  • 12 Mint leaves
  • 1/2 tsp Icing sugar

Coarse semolina for sprinkling baking sheets

    Instructions

    • Preheat the oven (with 2 baking sheets inside) to 275C/ 525F/ GM 11 or as hot as your oven will go
    • Beat the mascarpone with the sugar and vanilla bean extract until smooth
    • Roll out a portion of dough on a floured worktop
    • Place on a baking sheet dusted with coarse semolina
    • Working quickly, top with the mascarpone - dollop teaspoons onto the dough and use a blunt knife to spread it out
    • Top with 12 blackberries
    • Sprinkle one of the hot baking sheets (in the oven) with semolina and slide the topped pizza onto it
    • Whatever you do, don't let the topped pizza sit around on the baking sheet while you prepare more – it will stick and become difficult to transfer to the oven. Transfer it to the oven straight away. See my recipe notes for cooking 2 pizzas at the same time
    • Repeat steps 3-7 with the remaining portion of pizza dough and toppings. When ready to bake, sprinkle semolina onto the remaining hot baking sheet and slide the prepared pizza onto it
    • When there are just a few minutes of cooking time left for each pizza, scatter the flaked almonds over the top and let finish cooking
    • Meanwhile, melt the chocolate
    • When the pizza is cooked brush a little melted butter around the crust edge then drizzle the chocolate over the pizza - use the end of a knife to flick it across
    • Scatter a few mint leaves over the pizza and dust with icing sugar
    • Cut into pieces and serve immediately

    Notes

    If cooking 2 pizzas at once put the first pizza on a lower shelf where it will cook slower, then work hard to get the second pizza in within 2-3 minutes of the first and put this one on the top shelf.
     
    Food generally cooks slightly slower when it is lower down in the oven. So when to second pizza is ready to cook, let this one take the top shelf in the oven, where it is hotter.
