Makes: 8 slices
Baking Time: 12-15 minutes
Prep Time: 10 minutes 


  • 1 batch of purchased or homemade pizza dough
  • 4 ounces of plain goat cheese or honey goat cheese, at room temperature 
  • 4 ounces of mascarpone cheese at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon honey 
  • Powdered sugar for sprinkling over pizza
  • Zest of one orange
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups of fresh or frozen chopped raspberries or strawberries or a combination
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar for sprinkling on berries

For Raspberry Balsamic Syrup:

  • 1/3 cup balsamic syrup
  • 1/3 cup fresh or frozen raspberries 
  • 3 tablespoons sugar


1. Preheat oven to 425.

2. On a lightly floured and silicone lined baked sheet, stretch out your pizza dough in a circle as thinly as possible. Sprinkle dough with a bit of granulated sugar, especially on edges, if desired. Bake for approximately 12-15 minutes, remove and let cool. 

While pizza is cooking make raspberry balsamic reduction:

3. In a small saucepot combine balsamic vinegar with fresh or frozen raspberries and sugar. Stir to combine and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat slightly and let sauce for approximately 10 minutes or until balsamic reduces and thickens to a syrupy consistency. Keep a close eye on it as it can go from reduced to burnt very quickly!

4. While balsamic cooks combine chopped berries in a bowl and sprinkle with a spoonful of granulated sugar. Set aside.

5. Combine mascarpone and goat cheese in a small bowl until well combined. Add in the honey, 1/2 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract, and orange zest, and stir to mix. 

6. Once pizza crust has cooled to slightly warm, spread cheese mixture on top leaving a 1-inch border around the edge. Scatter berries over the cheese and drizzle liberally with slightly cooled raspberry balsamic syrup. Sprinkle generously with powdered sugar and serve!
