Cherry Pizza! Refreshing!

I found this recipe in the most recent issue of Ready Made (June/July 2011). And it just so happens that I have a couple pounds of cherries in my freezer. I modified the original recipe (found here) and boy howdy, was it good!

Cherry Pizza

One pizza crust
5 oz. goat cheese
1 T. chopped chives
1 T. parsley
Salt and pepper, pinch of each
1 T. chopped sweet onion
1 C. pitted cherries
1 C. arugula
Handful fresh basil
1 T. honey

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. I had a pizza crust leftover from my Bob's Red Mill Gluten-free Pizza Crust mix that I bought on sale. Otherwise, I would have pre-made my own crust or maybe used one from the grocery.

Mix the goat cheese, chives, parsley, salt and pepper in a bowl (or used food processor). Spread on pizza crust. Top with onion and cherries. Bake for 10 minutes. Removed from oven and top with arugula, basil and honey. Done! And delicious!

***Ready Made suggested substituting the mascarpone in the original recipe with goat cheese; that's where I got the idea. Their recipe actually includes the pizza crust and it makes two pizzas. Mine makes one. I could find shallots at Publix (as the original recipe calls for) so I used a little bit of sweet onion instead.


  1. Sounds good! If only there was a picture for me to ogle. ;)

  2. If only.... I forgot to snap one. But trust me, it looked delicious. And colorful! White, red, green...very Italian. :)
