We’ve been grilling pizza again and I have a whole list of sweet and savory recipes that I’m eager to share with you. First up….savory blueberry pizza!

I know, sounds kinda’ weird. But, TRUST me, it’s amazing. Blueberries are just as wonderful in savory dishes as they are in sweet desserts. They’re not actually a super sweet berry by themselves, but come across more like a grape in a savory setting.

To make this unique pizza, simply follow the instructions for grilling pizza HERE.

Make up a batch of my white pizza sauce…

~White Pizza Sauce~


3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 cup grated Romano or Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup white wine

for savory blueberry pizza:

After you flip the crust, spread the white sauce evenly over the surface. Top with fresh blueberries, fried onions, little dollops of chevre (soft French goat cheese), a sprinkle of fresh lemon-thyme, salt and freshly ground pepper.

Enjoy with your favorite white wine!

    Well, now you’ve got me a-wondering… how does blueberry taste on a pizza… what an intriguing combination Melissa – I’ll have to remember this. My wife will probably be horrified (she thinks fruit in savoury food is weird (I say “she’s” weird!)) but if it’s as good as you say it is, well then… maybe she’ll have to change her mind!

      you are such a creative and innovative chef, I’m sure you will come up with interesting combinations of your own…but this was really good! blueberries translate so well to savory dishes. we just had a pile of them on our salads this evening 🙂 I think the next time I made the pizza I’ll add pancetta or bacon. otherwise, it was pretty darn near perfect. thanks for stopping by my friend!
