Sweet Berry Pizzas

cook 30 mins
  • 500 g (1 lb) strong bread flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 4 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 7 g (1/4 oz) sachet dried yeast
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 300 ml (1/2 pint) warm water
  • 300 g (10 oz) full-fat cream cheese
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 2–3 drops of vanilla extract
  • 400 g (13 oz) fresh berries
  • 175 g (6 oz) soft light brown sugar
  • 25 g (1 oz) plain flour
  • 50 g (2 oz) unsalted butter, melted
  • To make the dough, place the flour, 2 tablespoons of the sugar, the yeast and salt in a large bowl and mix together. Make a well in the centre. Stir in the olive oil and most of the measurement water. Mix together with your hand, gradually adding more water, if necessary, until you have a soft, but not sticky dough.
  • Turn the dough out on to a floured work surface and knead for 5–10 minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic.
  • Divide the dough into 4 pieces and roll out to 15 cm (6 inch) circles, then place on 2 large baking sheets.
  • Mix together the cream cheese, egg yolks, vanilla extract and remaining caster sugar and spread over the pizza bases. Top with the berries.
  • Mix together the brown sugar, plain flour and melted butter in a bowl and sprinkle over the berries.
  • Bake in a preheated oven, 220°C (425°F), Gas Mark 7, for 12–15 minutes, until golden.
