Cooking

Blackberry, Goat Cheese, and Honey

Jul 19, 2023

My sister has recently been going through a “wanderlust” phase. And by wanderlust, I mean she wants a big piece of land that she can wander around and tend to goats, cows, and various other adorable furry farm animals. If/when she accomplishes this dream, this is the pizza she is going to make. Take a bite, and you’ll be instantly transported to grassy fields with bees buzzing on the faces of blooming wildflowers, while the sun nestles over the neighboring hilltop.

Equipment

Solo Stove Pi Prime

Bamboo Peel

Stainless Steel Turner

Infrared Thermometer

Ingredients

Dough balls

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1 ½ C low-moisture, whole milk mozzarella, shredded

2-3 oz. goat cheese

3-4 oz. fresh blackberries

Honey (flavored, if you dare. Lavender honey is a nice touch.)

Handful of arugula

1 lemon, juiced

2 oz. chopped pistachios

Build your Pizza:

1 - Stretch your dough to your desired size (Pi and Pi Prime can handle up to 13” pizzas).

2 - Use the olive oil as your base, and spread it over the crust until it’s about ½” from the edge of the dough.

3 - Sprinkle the mozzarella and goat cheese evenly across the top of the dough.

4 - Add as many blackberries as you’d like.

*TIP: these blackberries are prone to rolling off of the pizza when trying to launch it into the oven. To remedy this, I pinch the blackberries in half and place them individually so that the pinched side sits on the dough. This will also give the pizza a great color.

5 - Cook that sucker! Bake your pizza for approximately 90 seconds.

Garnish:

1 - Toss the arugula in lemon juice, then add a small handful to the center of the pizza.

2 - Drizzle with a good amount of honey, which will help tame the blackberries' brightness.

3 - Sprinkle your preferred amount of chopped pistachios over the pizza.

4 - Slice, and enjoy!
