Blueberry Pizza

Who would have know that blueberries on pizza would be so delicious!
I went blueberry picking with my girlfriend over the weekend and I have so many blueberries that I needed something new to do with them. After all, new recipes are my favorite kind of recipe!
So I scoured the internet and a few of our family cookbooks and found many pies, jams and smoothies, lots of dessert items for sure, but it was the pizza that caught my attention. Can you really put blueberries on pizza? The answer is you sure can! And it is not a dessert but a main or an appetizer. You can switch out the shallots for an onion of your choice and feel free to get creative with the cheeses as well. You can also replace the bacon with pancetta, prosciutto or spinach if you don’t feel like a meat option. There are so many choices out there that you could make this over and over without making the same pizza twice!

This pizza is colorful, delicious and versatile I will definitely be making this again! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Heat a skillet over low heat, add a little oil and the thinly sliced shallots and garlic, cover and cook 20-30 minutes until golden brown, stirring occasionally.
  3. Lightly flour a work surface.
  4. Stretch and roll the dough into desired shape then place on pizza stone if you have one if not a large baking sheet will do.
  5. Using a fork, pierce dough in several places.
  6. Spread the ricotta cheese evenly over the surface of the dough.
  7. Then sprinkle dough with half the mozzarella, bacon or pancetta and golden brown shallots and garlic mixture.
  8. Bake until crust is golden brown, 12 to 14 minutes.
  9. Sprinkle blueberries and remaining mozzarella (and spinach if you are using) over pizza; bake until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown, about 2 - 3 minutes longer.
  10. Remove pizza from oven; top with micro mustard greens and pepper.
  11. Enjoy!
