A delicious blueberry pizza

Now, doesn’t that blueberry pizza look inviting? Yes, indeed, this is a delicious pizza to make. Far from the typical pizza toppings, this blueberry pizza is a welcome change of pace. The blueberries add a special zest to the pizza.

A couple of years ago, we were at a wedding reception in Oakland, CA. The caterer was a pizza company. Their pizza oven was on a trailer. There were three different pizzas on the menu. The most popular pizza by far was the blueberry pizza. I could never get the full recipe, but this blueberry pizza from the Blueberry Council is delicious.

The Blueberry Council Website is a fantastic resource for recipes and other helpful information about blueberries. As you know, blueberries have many health benefits. Take a look at the Blueberry Council Website.

Blueberry Pizza Recipe

Start with the dough. A homemade pizza crust is our top choice. View our Pizza Page for several pizza crust recipes, from easy to complex. Once you make your pizza dough, you will never look back. You can also buy pizza dough from a pizza shop. Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, and other supermarkets usually have fresh pizza dough for sale. 

blueberry pizza ingredients

To make the Blueberry Pizza, gather the ingredients. These include mozzarella cheese, Gorgonzola cheese, pancetta, red onion, blueberries, and basil. Do you have a pizza stone? A pizza stone will give you the best results. You can use a baking sheet as a substitute, but the stone is the way to go. You can bake it the oven or on the grill.

Push out the dough and add the cheese, pancetta and onions. Place the pizza in the oven at the highest temperature you have. Once the crust is almost ready, add the blueberries and the final amount of mozzarella cheese. Close the oven door and cook to perfection. Some pizza chefs like to use the Broiler for the last few minutes.

Now follow the complete directions at the Blueberry Council. Enjoy one of the finest pizzas you will ever eat.

Finding the correct wine match with the blueberry pizza

If white wines are your choice, then the blueberry pizza will match up nicely with moderately-oaky Chardonnay. Remember, you have not only the cheese in the pizza, but the pancetta.

Our choice is a red wine to pair with the blueberry pizza. A glass of red wine, from a Zinfandel to a Syrah, will love the pancetta and the melted cheese.
