A recipe for Blueberry Dessert Pizza. Blueberry Dessert Pizza with cinnamon and sugar. Blueberry Pizza with cinnamon and sugar recipe.  Dessert Pizza. I get it, it may seem strange to some people. It is, its a weird idea, but I think its a glorious one. The closest thing I can think of is Pizza Huts (or maybe Dominos?) has these cinnamon sugar bread sticks. Now, while I dislike having to compare this recipe to those pizza places, I am doing so in an attempt to get you into your comfort zone. This is bomb. Blueberries, cinnamon sugar, cream cheese, mozzarella, it is actually really good. So I hope you will look upon these images, and this recipe and think it would be a good idea to make this. I am going to ask for it as my birthday cake.

Blueberry Dessert Pizza
Makes 1

Ingredients:
1 12” ready-made pizza crust
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup blueberry jam
1 cup grated part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 cup fresh blueberries
**You can definitely make your own pizza dough for this recipe. The ready-made
crust is to turn a 2 1/2 hour process into a 20 minute one!

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 425F.
2. Place cream cheese and cinnamon in a small bowl and stir together until well combined.
3. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the surface of the crust.
4. Next, spread the blueberry jam over the cream cheese mixture.
5. Sprinkle the mozzarella over the jam, followed by the fresh blueberries.
6. Place the pizza directly onto the oven rack and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the cheese melts and bubbles and the blueberries just begin to juice.
7. Allow to cool for a few minutes, cut and serve.

    I love this! I’ve put berries on pizza before and it’s just the most fun. I’d eat this for dinner in a heartbeat.

    Wow, what an interesting, yet delicious, looking treat! I’m really curious to taste how the mozzarella pairs with everything else. I absolutely love this. My boyfriend and I are avid pizza eaters, so this is right up our alley! I pinned this post, thanks for the great recipe!

  3. Kate Not Specified Not Specified

    i guess i cant knock it till i try it but htat sounds.. . yucky haha

  4. Louise Not Specified Not Specified

    I would never have thought of pairing mozzarella cheese with blueberries and cinnamon cream cheese, but now I’m intrigued. I just might have to try this, just to assuage my curiosity!

  5. Wendy @ Salt and Wine Not Specified Not Specified

    This sounds to interesting not to try plus it’s beautiful! I wonder if you could pair it with a different cheese besides mozzarella? Maybe a smokey cheddar or even a brie?

  6. Jess Not Specified Not Specified

    Oh. OH MY. This sounds amazing. Pancakes, eat your heart out.

  7. The Sweet Cupcaker Not Specified Not Specified

    this looks amazing!! i’m drooling. Dessert pizzas are the best–gives me an excuse to put m&ms on a pizza like I always want to do

  8. Cynthia Not Specified Not Specified

    Why of why do you torture me so? :) I am crazy, madly, deeply in love with blue berries.

  9. Heather (Heather's Dish) Not Specified Not Specified

    I love dessert pizza but have never actually seen it with real cheese…sounds amazing!

  10. Maria Not Specified Not Specified

    I have to try this!

  11. erin @WELL in L.A. Not Specified Not Specified

    Indulgent! Makes me wish cheese and I were on agreeable terms with one another. The fake cheese / cheese substitute + blueberries seems like a bad idea…

    • Teri Lyn Fisher Not Specified Not Specified

      Arg! Yes. I’ve never had cheese substitute on pizza. BUT you can always try just making a flat bread with no cheese, maybe drizzle some honey. That might be good!

      • Hollydays Not Specified Not Specified

        Try Daiya Cheese – it’s a “vegan” cheese and it actually melts. Comes in Cheddar and Motz. Have only tried the chedder, but my dairy allergy kiddo loves it!

  12. Amanda @ Thinly Sliced Cucumber Not Specified Not Specified

    Wow- looks and sounds amazing! I wonder how it would taste with other fruits- like maybe strawberries? My husband’s favorite food is pizza and I’ve been trying to come up with a special and unique Valentine’s day dinner. I think I might have found a winner!

  13. Domestic Executive Not Specified Not Specified

    This looks delicious and only last night I was talking about what a sweet pizza would taste like. We make ours every week and cook them in our Green Egg Oven. It’s summer here in NZ so I plan to make this using fresh blueberries which are in season and ricotta cheese which I’m going to make on a cheese making course next weekend. Can’t wait. Thanks for the inspiration.

  14. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga Not Specified Not Specified

    This looks amazing and I love pineapple on pizza like no other and blueberries just took this to the next level!!!

  15. Amy (Minimally Invasive) Not Specified Not Specified

    This sounds divine! It reminds me just a tiny bit of focaccia with concord grapes, only dessertier (and therefore better). I love pizza in any application, though; I baked one for breakfast not too long ago!

  16. Michelle Not Specified Not Specified

    Fabulous! I’m making a dessert pizza that is a little less adventurous for a family gathering this weekend.

  17. Maggie Not Specified Not Specified

    I was pleasantly surprised when my husband said of all the cookies we tried from Momofuku Milk Bar, he liked the Blueberry & Cream ones best. We make our own pizza so often that this sweet one will HAVE TO be explored!

  18. Odette Not Specified Not Specified

    This sounds so intriguing! I have to give it a try, but I’m thinking brie instead of mozzarella. The pics look absolutely mouth watering!

  19. Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar Not Specified Not Specified

    Could this be anymore freaking awesome! I’m in love!

  20. Russell at Chasing Delicious Not Specified Not Specified

    What a concept! I’ve always been afraid of dessert pizzas but this one looks too good not to try.

  21. pure2raw twin Not Specified Not Specified

    wow! love the idea! looks delicious! who knew that blueberries would be so good on pizza ;)

  22. Andrea Not Specified Not Specified

    My first job was at a pizza chain called Hell here in New Zealand, and they did the most amazing dessert pizzas – I could never decide whether I liked banana and chocolate or their apple, custard and cinnamon pizza better.

  23. Sara {Home is Where the Cookies Are} Not Specified Not Specified

    This is so intriguing. I never would have thought to do a dessert pizza with fruit and hot mozzarella. But it looks tasty! I think I will have to give it a try!

    This looks so good! I’ve had a dessert pizza but it looked like a lot of nothing on a plate. Yours looks so inviting and fun!

  26. Kasey Not Specified Not Specified

    If dessert pizza is wrong, I don’t want to be right. YUM!

  27. Ju Not Specified Not Specified

    Hey there! Loved this recipe, and the concept of dessert pizza does not seems weird to me! Haha
    I’m from Brazil and people here are very gastronomic creative, sweet pizzas are very common, and you can find multiples flavors in every pizzeria.
    Can’t wait to try this one!

    Ummm…. Where have I been? I just found your blog and it’s so incredibly beautiful and fun and so refreshing! Pure love! Oh, and I adore this blueberry pizza. Mind if I post the link on my FB page?

  32. todd Not Specified Not Specified

    Jenny/Teri – I’m going to try this (Blueberry Dessert Pizza) and was wondering if that’s 1 tsp. of ground cinnamon (seems like a lot) or a cinnamon/sugar mixture. Thanks

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Hi Todd! It’s 1 tsp of cinnamon. I know it seems like a lot, but everything else like the cream cheese, shredded cheese, and jam cut the “intenseness” a lot and the flavor actually comes off pretty mild. If you’re still nervous, no problem at all just add half the amount listed. Good luck!

  33. Carol Brown Not Specified Not Specified

    sounds refreshing and tasty, tks for sharing.

  34. Carol Brown Not Specified Not Specified

    sounds resreshing and tasty

    I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited by fruit in my whole life. This may have to be my birthday cake this year… shake things up a bit!

    This looks great! Everyone is always raving about dessert pizzas, but I have never tried one before! Now, I really don’t know why

  40. kim Not Specified Not Specified

    I tried this after looking at it and it looks amazing btw. It was not tasty (sorry), I really wanted to like it, so I even made some alterations to see if I could make it work for my families taste buds… but it didn’t, we ended up throwing both pizza’s away. The mozzarella and pizza crust just taste so off with the blueberries. My husband who eats just about anything, didn’t eat more then two bites. :( sorry.

    • Teri Lyn Fisher Not Specified Not Specified

      Hi Kim, sorry you didn’t like it. I guess it’s just not right for some people. It’s still one of my favorites so I’m sorry you couldn’t get into it!

  41. Melissa Not Specified Not Specified

    We have some blueberries we picked up at the farmer’s market this weekend that I wanted to make something new with. I think I’ll try something like this, but I really don’t see it going well with the regular pizza crust and mozzarella. Maybe sugar cookie crust or croissant or shortbread crust, adding a little honey in the cream cheese to sweeten it, and omitting the shredded cheese.

    • Teri Lyn Fisher Not Specified Not Specified

      Hi Melissa,

      This isn’t for everyone. I would say if you’re apprehensive now you probably won’t like it. I love it, and its one of my favorite things ever, but it just doesn’t float some peoples boat. Maybe try some of your crust ideas if the regular crust seems gross to you. Good luck.

      Teri
