Dessert Pizza Ideas

Not sure what mascarpone cheese is? Mascarpone is a soft Italian cream cheese. With a higher fat content it has a silky spreadable consistency and is just luxurious! It's perfect to use anywhere you want a creamy luscious texture,so of course in sweet desserts like Tiramisu, but also in savory dishes such as  pasta dishes, risottos, potatoes, and more. It's perfect to add to todays dessert, with it's rich, creamy taste and texture, it just adds the perfect touch that you cant get from regular cream cheese, and whipped cream would make it too sweet.

Dessert Pizza
I couldn't have made this dish without my sponsor, Dixie Crystals Sugar! They provided me with sugar to create recipes for Brunchweek. Isued their fine granulated sugar in the blackberry sauce as well as their powdered sugar is perfect to dust on top before serving.

Let's get baking!
