  • One .25-ounce package active dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for flouring the work surface
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for coating the bowl


  • 2 cups blackberries
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • pinch of sea salt


  • olive oil
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 11 oz log goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup blackberries
  • 1/4 cup mulberries


For the dough: In a small bowl, combine the yeast with the sugar and 3/4 cup warm water. Let sit for 10 minutes until it begins to foam.

In a large bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour and salt and make a well in the center. Add the yeast mixture and olive oil. Using a fork, incorporate the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients until a dough forms. On a lightly floured surface, continue to work and then knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.

Lightly coat a clean bowl with additional olive oil and add the dough, turning once to coat the dough in the oil. Cover and set in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.

Punch down the dough and divide in half, only using one half for the pizza. Wrap the remaining half of dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate later use.

For the dressing: In a saucepan over high heat, place all the ingredients and bring to a full boil. While stirring constantly, cook it down for 15 minutes, or until it coats the back of a spoon. Set aside.

For the pizza: Place the sough on a well greased sheet tray and use your hands to press the dough out to the edges of the pan. Lightly brush with olive oil and season with salt. Top with dressing, goat cheese, blackberries and mulberries. Bake in oven for 10 minutes and then remove. Serve immediately.
