This is a riff on the fruit tart my aunt totes along to family gatherings. Hers is glazed with orange marmalade; I sprinkle the berries with sugar and cinnamon. A lot of fruit pizza recipes I've seen floating around on the internet use cookie dough for the crust - too sweet for me. I used a pre-made pizza crust, but you could also make your own from purchased pizza dough. —wssmom
12-inch pre-made pizza crust (I use Whole Foods organic pizza crust)
granulated sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
(about 1 1/2 cups) mascarpone (you can cheat and use regular cream cheese, it just won't taste as good!)
About 2 cups of whatever berries are available - I used strawberries, blackberries and raspberries, but you could also add blueberries, or even thinly sliced peaches
tiny mint sprigs
In This Recipe
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Brush pizza crust with melted butter and sprinkle with about half the sugar and cinnamon mixture
Bake in preheated oven anywhere from 5-7 minutes, or just until the butter starts to sizzle and the crust begins to turn light brown. You don't want to overdo it, or you'll wind up with a 12-inch cracker.
Remove from oven and let cool
Meanwhile, in a bowl, stir lemon juice into mascarpone. If mixture seems a little too thick, you can thin it with a tiny bit of milk.
Spread mascarpone evenly over cooled pie crust. Strew the berries artfully about, and sprinkle with remaining sugar and cinnamon. Serve in wedges like pizza, garnished with a mint sprig.
