Mixed Berry Breakfast Pizza

Mixed Berry Breakfast Pizza: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

This pizza reminds me of my Dessert Pizza, but instead of eating it for dessert, you get to eat for breakfast.

Mixed Berry Breakfast Pizza: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

I knew that this recipe had the potential to be delicious, but I did not know just how delicious it was going to be. I looked forward to eating the leftovers for breakfast the next day.

Mixed Berry Breakfast Pizza


  • 1 ball pizza dough, about 1 pound
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup vanilla sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups mascarpone cheese
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 16 ounces frozen berries, thawed


  1. Preheat oven to 350ยบ F.
  2. Roll out the pizza dough to about 1/4 inch thick.
  3. Transfer pizza dough to a lightly greased pizza pan or baking sheet.
  4. Brush the melted butter over the entire dough.
  5. Combine the vanilla sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and sprinkle 2 tablespoons over the melted butter on the pizza dough.
  6. Bake for about 10-15 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
  7. Transfer pizza to a cooling rack.
  8. While the pizza dough is cooling, mix together the cheese, cream, lemon juice and zest in a medium bowl.
  9. Spread over the cooled dough and top with mixed berries.
  10. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon sugar, if desired.

You can buy vanilla sugar at some stores or you can make it by combining 1/2 cup granulated sugar and the seeds from 1 vanilla bean.

You can substitute fresh berries for the frozen.
