Sweet and Savory Blueberry Pizza - Simply Fresh Dinners

It’s blueberry season and I love being at Barrie Hill Farm to watch everyone’s excitement to climb the wagons and get into the fields to pick.  This year the berries are as big as quarters and SO juicy!

We also had another Feast in the Field this week celebrating berries and it was a great success.  I’ll have a separate post coming up to share photos and stories.

Ok, back to this easy deliciousness.  I’ve included pancetta on this pizza but I’m sure it would be delicious without it as well if you’re vegetarian.  I don’t cook pancetta very often and every time I do I’m left wondering why I don’t add it to everything, ha.  I absolutely love it!

I used mini Naan because you know I’m all about quick and easy.  The kids can help with this dish and each make their own.  The base is simply honey and goat cheese combined topped with the red onion, pancetta and a little thyme.   Bake for 12 minutes and add the blueberries for another 5 minutes and lunch is served!

I will be making these often throughout the summer because I love the look of surprise on everyone’s face when they take their first bite – fabulous!

Did you know that blueberries contain:
  • blueberries are the most nutrient dense of all the berries
  • the king of antioxidant foods
  • reduce DNA damage which may help protect against aging and cancer
  • can help maintain brain function and improve memory

    This reminds me of a savory strawberry pizza that I make. It does sound a little strange but so… good! I know the sweetness of the blueberries with the creamy goat cheese and salty prosciutto is wonderful!

      Oh, I’ll have to pop over and see your pizza, Chris. Every summer I have the intention of creating a strawberry version but I never seem to get it done! This was so delicious, I even surprised myself, lol.

      Hi Jennifer,
      You know I rarely use pancetta because I kind of forget about it but I sure do love it!
      I will make this over and over while the blueberries are still available. Just loved it!

    I don’t think these kind of easy, peasy pizzas get enough love. We made a blackberry pizza that is out of this world delicious, and I bet this one is too! So easy and fantastic with all those plumb, delicious blueberries. Outstanding recipe and I can’t wait to try it!

      Thanks so much, Tricia! I’m such a big fan of pancetta and when I do remember to use it, I’m always surprised how delicious it is! The saltiness with the blueberries and goat cheese/honey combo was divine! I truly hope you try it!

      Awwwhh, thanks, Sherri, you made my day! This was so fun to put together and I even surprised myself with the tasty combo of pancetta and blueberries with the goat cheese/honey mix. I’ve been making it again and again, lol.

    Never had blueberries in pizza. Really like the idea, though — SO pretty. And tastes better than it looks, I’ll bet. Thanks!

      I had never had them either, John, but the sweet and salty combo was irresistible to me. I love pancetta so this was super tasty. I’ve made it twice again since!
