Who doesn’t love Spring? I am definitely taking full advantage of the season’s delicious fruits in any way I can. So when today’s weather made it possible to turn on the oven, I just had to let creativity run wild. Who knew it was going to rain?
Oh, and did I mention my ultimate favorite food is pizza? Yup. I love pizza. I could eat pizza every day of the week if I could. But the thought of being bogged down by heavy dough just wasn’t in the cards today. So I decided to head out to Trader Joe’s for a little inspiration.
As I was cruising down the aisles (something I don’t suggest you do when hungry), I stumbled upon whole wheat pizza dough. Hmm…flatbread pizza was sounding real good, right about now. Naturally, I added it to the cart.
Continuing my stroll down the fruits and vegetables aisle, I came across these amazing blackberries. Plump and delicious, with a deep, dark color that screamed juiciness. I just had to pick up a couple of containers.
To complete my shopping list, I decided to throw on some prosciutto, rather than pepperoni, and add some leafy greens to it.
With bounty in hand, I was ready to complete my purchase for today’s meal: Blackberry & Prosciutto Flatbread Pizza.
What You’ll Need
|Whole Wheat Pizza Dough|
Goat Cheese (crumbled)
Feta Cheese (crumbled)
Spring Mix Greens or Spinach
Preheat oven according to dough instructions
Next, Place dough on a cutting board or saran wrap and let it sit for 30 minutes at room temperature
Take dough and pull it to size with hands. Try not to overwork the dough.
Coat pizza dish or cookie tray with olive oil and place dough on tray. drizzle olive oil on dough
Cover dough with your cheeses and prosciutto. I won’t tell you how much to put on . . . that all depends on personal preference.
Place dough in oven for about 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. I like my crust crunchy, so I left it in there for 35 minutes. Again, this will depend on personal preference.
Remove pizza from oven and cover with spring mix or spinach and blackberries. Garnish with extra cheese (optional).
