Recipe: Raspberry, Brie & Candied Almond PizzaMarch 21, 2015
Yesterday it was officially spring and I thought of that as a reason to have a little celebration. I absolutely love spring; the world is enveloping itself in different shades of green, baby animals being born, flower buds opening up, and happy birds twittering all around you. The world is starting anew.
Fact was, sadly, that on the day spring officially arrived, it was pouring with rain in Zutphen, and I spent most of my time reading the volume 1 diary of Anaïs Nin, next to a fire burning, and with a steaming cup of tea in my hand. However, I did not let the rain spoil the fun and made a delicious pizza with summer fruit: velvety raspberries. I am a big fan of fruit pizza's (my favorite being the blueberry/goat cheese pizza) and thought this was a great way to celebrate spring.
At first you'd think this combination of ingrediënts odd on a pizza, and I even got a remark on my Instagram when I posted a picture of it, that it is such a curious combination. I can ensure you, you will not regret it one single moment that you made this, as soon as you take your first bite. It's a big hit in casa Lane, and this recipe is added to my list of favorite easy DIY pizza's. I'm a big pizza lover, you know.
I always cheat a little because I rarely make my own pizza crust; I love baking, cooking and what have you, but I don't like working with pastry. I can work with it, but I just don't like it a lot unless I have a lot of time. As a solution I always use naanbread as a pizza crust, and it works wonderfully.
