Dress up your pizza with something a little different in this Blackberry Basil Ricotta Pizza. It’s elegant. It’s simple. And it’s totally delicious!
The sweet and tart of the blackberries, the punch of basil, the creaminess of the ricotta….it all comes together so fantastically that this pizza always ends up not just being eaten, but absolutely devoured.
When you are in my line of work people are always asking you what your favorite thing to eat is, or your favorite thing to make, or what your signature dish is. That’s such a hard question to answer because I’m constantly making and perfecting new dishes. But if you were going to force an answer from me, well, I love pizza. It sounds lame, and even a bit childish, but if I was stuck only eating one thing for the rest of my life I would want it to be pizza. There’s so many possibilities of topping combinations that I could eat pizza every day for every meal and not eat the same combination again for months. And that’s only because my imagination is limited and would eventually reach an end.
This pizza is one of my favorite topping combinations. I absolutely love ricotta on a thin crust pizza. It’s one of my favorite things to get. This pizza is sauced with nothing more than olive oil and a blackberry smash, topped with mozzarella and parmesan, and dotted with fresh blackberries and fresh basil. It’s a refreshing, gourmet twist on pizza that’s easy to love.

It was a hit. I made mini pizzas by cutting the dough into squares to fit in my brownie pan.
It was a big hit. I made it into bite sized pizzas by cutting the dough to for in my brownie pan.
Almost a five!! Drizzle with honey for that fifth star. Amazing fresh taste that’s also awesome in presentation. Thank you for sharing this!
This was so good. I made it for breakfast this morning. I used naan added a drizzle of a balsamic reduction!!! I wanted to give it 5 stars on the rating but the site wouldn’t let me activate that.
I added salt and pepper, clover honey, and, after baking, balsamic vinegar. Yummy!
This is a wonderful pizza – even on a very wintery, stormy evening ! It is fairly quick and easy.
Just wondering if any other fruits have been/could be switched for the blackberries.
Hi! I made this today (minus the ricotta) for a coworkers birthday potluck. Everyone loved it! It was such a delicious hit…and so pretty! Thank you for the creative idea! The vegetarians were thrilled! ?
Made this with a Keto pizza crust. Used pesto instead of fresh basil. Simply amazing!
