BLUEBERRY DESSERT PIZZA
Yes. I also love nutella pizza but sometimes you just want a lighter version. This idea came about from a dessert I used to make called Ricotta and Blueberry Triangles which I can no longer make as it needs filo pastry. Since we are a gluten free household…. well that’s out the window! So what better way to combine those flavours than on a pizza! This recipe will surely surprise you as it’s light and fresh yet filling and somewhat savoury.
I made it for a friend of mine who came to visit for brunch and she loved it. I hadn't seen her in a very long time and wanted to cook something because I feel it makes the occasion more special. Throughout the morning I realised how long it was since the last time we caught up and I became nostalgic. Both our lives had changed so much, and so much had happened that there wasn’t a moment to breathe between conversations. Interestingly, we ourselves hadn't changed much. We both were silly girls chatting away just like we used to and laughing at the same silly jokes which only we could understand. Though we kept in contact through social media, it just isn't the same as giving each other a warm embrace and making each other laugh. Who doesn’t love to hear laughter out loud compared to seeing a laughing emoji? Anyway, it was a lovely morning tea and I must promise myself to see more friends in person!
Back to this recipe. If there is one blueberry recipe you cook this summer (if you are in Australia) then I hope you give this BLUEBERRY DESSERT PIZZA a try. Make it while they are in season still and share it with loved ones along side a cuppa tea. I’ll have mine strong and black! Enjoy x
