June Plum Pizza

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Great googly moogly.  I’ve made something with yeast…

This month’s baking club assignment was pizza dough.  At first I was excited.  Savory baking, I can dig.  But then I checked out the recipe for basic pizza dough in my Bible (aka The Good Housekeeping Cookbook) and discovered that I’d have to use yeast! Yeast and I are not friends.  Normally, I would chuck the idea completely and go for something without yeast but this is baking club.  People are depending on me.  Maureen will laugh in my face if I balk!

So I gave it a try and to my utter shock…it worked 🙂

I wanted to keep things simple for my pizza.  And I wanted to use up some of the 12 pounds of June Plums I collected from my tree this week.  Hence…

June Plum Pizza
You will need:
Basic Pizza Dough
6 June Plums, pitted and sliced
1/4 cup brown sugar

  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • Sprinkle pizza dough with brown sugar and evenly distribute plums
  • Bake for 15 minutes
Note: June plums are more tart than sweet.  If you’re going to make a plum pizza with regular plums, I’d use a stinky cheese as well like goat cheese or feta to compliment the sweet.

Make sure to check out what my fellow baking club members whipped up for the occasion!

  1. Hi, just wanted to send you a belated “thank you” for suggesting recipes for my Cayman Islands entry on Travel by Stove. I did use all three recipes this week and gave you a link back (we particularly liked the Cayman Style Fish). Thank you again for the help!

  2. Yowzas! This looks so delicious… and fresh made pizza dough.. Yum! Thanks for the eye candy 🙂

  3. Chica, you know I've NEVER made anything with yeast! Perhaps this plum pizza will change everything! YUM! 😀

  4. A plum pizza? Fruit on a pizza!?! Great – my plum tree (dark purple variety) is just about ready and aside from canning or poaching I was wondering what else could be done with them…

  5. A sweet pizza???? With a yeast crust? Woe, baby, this sounds fantastic! Hey, I'd rather make a yeast dough than roll out a finicky pie crust…love this!!!

  6. I love sweet pizza…back in Brazil sweet pizza is very common…I like the idea of using peaches…looks delicious 🙂
    Thanks for the idea and hope you are having a fun week!

  7. A sweet fruity pizza…I would love a large slice too.

  8. I love this with all the color from the plums…it would definitely be great with some blue or other pungent cheese.

  9. This is beautiful. I lOVE plums!!!

  10. I agree with Jen; this is immensely creative. Sorry about the yeast troubles – it looks like you definitely succeeded anyways!

  11. What a creative pizza!

  12. Now this is interesting.. I am imagining myself drizzling the plum pizza with some lemon icing .. hehehe.. sorry I can't help it 😛

  13. Very unique pizza! Let me see…I don't think I had any fruit pizza before (besides pineapple on Hawaiian haha!). This is extremely easy to make, and I must work on a homemade pizza dough!

  14. Yeast and i are not friends either…lol.
    But, it's awesome that you gave yeast another shot coz this pizza looks so cool!

  15. Love this and great job using yeast

  16. This pizza looks wonderful. love the plums!

  17. Your pizza looks awesome!

  18. What a gorgeous pizza. Yeast and I aren't exactly friends either. You did a fabulous job. Congratulations.

  19. Yeast and myself are far away. Never used before for cooking nor baking. Just afraid of the consequences.

    Nice and love any simple desserts, yes to wanting to try the same. Btw Ms, please check your mail on the guest post.

  20. I have some good experiences with yeast. Also I've made a typical breakfast pizza and it was delicious. As a person with a sweet tooth, I need to try your recipe 🙂

  21. Woohooo a sweet pizza! Sweet pizzas are so unrated I reckon, there should be more around. 🙂 Googly moogly are very addictive words. 😛

  22. I love the googly moogly 😀 😀 😀
    Your pizza is so worth it! It looks incredibly delish!


  23. Umm I think everyone should say googly moogly at least once a day or when eating great pizza like this 🙂

  24. My bread machine makes quick work of pizza dough. Even does a great job with whole wheat. I have yet to try a dessert pizza like this. Terrific idea!

  25. You beauty!!! I'll bring over my quick and easy and we'll enjoy yours for dessert. This wins, hands down. 🙂

  26. Those plums look soooooo yummy! I've never made a fruit pizza, that's such a good idea! I don't' want summer to ever leave, I can get enough of these amazing fresh fruit recipes!

  27. What a cool idea – like a deconstructed cobbler!

  28. Hooray for conquering the ol' “to bake with yeast or not” debate! I like the simplicity of your recipe — it showcases the crust AND topping — best of both, as far as I'm concerned!

  29. Awesome!!I love this fruity pizza and so want to try it now :)So easy and so delicious :)Thanks for a lovely recipe!

  30. Woo hoo Top 9!!!!!!

  31. YUMMY!! First, I had complete faith in you and yeast. Second, I was so hoping that somebody would do a dessert pizza!! It looks so good. Way to go!!

  32. Parsley Sage, you are a genius! I LOVE this sweet pizza. For a moment I thought it was going to be mango but this is even better. (p.s. I think a conserve would work for your glut of plums)

  33. wow! that must be a delicious pizza.. great shot!

  34. A dessert pizza, my kind of yeasty treat! Looks like you and yeast are good friends after all. I haven't baked much lately but I'm thinking this baking club sounds like a lot of fun!

  35. That plum dessert is fantastic!

  36. I'm gonna come raid your tree!

  37. Yippee you conquered the yeast monster! On top of that you have a plum tree in your yard. I'm officially jealous. Yumtastic pizza girlfriend!

  38. Your pizza looks great! And I am so jealous over your plum tree! Gorgeous plums! I was looking for plums for one of my baking event which is due soon, and I could even find one plum these two days! Should have bought them a couple of days ago when I came across them then! Can I come over to pick from your beautiful tree? 🙂

  39. What a great sweet and savory idea! Those plums look gorgeous and I bet they are perfect paired with the slightly salty crust! I wish I had thought of it! And glad you made peace with the yeast! ;- }

  40. Sweet pizza – great.

  41. pizza looks wonderful

  42. I am glad I am not the only one that doesn't get along with that pesky yeast character. That pizza looks awesome.

  43. Wowsers, Simple yet sumptuious! Way to go, looks yummy! Hate that I missed out. Mrs. Herb Garden
