By the way, don’t stick to just the fruits mentioned below. This can be a highly seasonal platform. Meaning, go with what’s in season. Add nuts, sprinkle honey, or not. This here is just one example of how you can make this beautiful dessert.


  • Pizza dough
  • 350g Mascarpone cheese
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar, sifted (you can use more for a sweeter, this recipe is a bit tart)
  • 1 tbsp Kirsch (optional)
  • 6 peaches, stoned and sliced into wedges
  • 20 dark cherries, pitted and roughly chopped (or assorted berries)
  • 3 mint leaves, Chiffonade
  • 1/4 cup Brown sugar
  • Raw honey for drizzling, optional

Prepare the dough as in the recipe on this link.

Shape the dough after proofing, then and don’t cook it just yet. Cover with a cotton cloth and leave to proof once more until you are ready to use.

In a mixing bowl, mix mascarpone cheese, icing sugar, and kirsch if using util incorporated and creamy. Spread this mixture on top of the spread out raw pizza dough.

Top with the peach wedges, chopped cherries or assorted berries and mint Chiffonade. Sprinkle with brown sugar and bake in your hot oven until fully cooked through and the fruits are slightly caramelised.

Remove from the oven, sprinkle with sliced almonds or your preferred nuts.

When you serve this pizza, you can drizzle lightly with raw honey.
