Blackberry, pecan and brie flatbread

It’s blackberry season.


I recently had a dinner party with something of a blackberry theme running through it (goat cheese was also recurring, as was arugula… OK there was more than one common thread).

On the menu that night:

Let’s get cooking.

♫ Suggested listening: something with honey. ♫

Click to listen: Mariah Carey – “Honey”  (Yes, I’m a 90’s kid!)


  • 1 batch of flatbread/pizza dough – this is my go-to these days (or be lazy and pick up Trader Joe’s pizza dough like I did this time around)
  • 1 pint blackberries (you may not need all of them depending on how big you make the thing)
  • 8 oz. brie cheese, sliced
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • Honey
  • Cinnamon
  • Salt (I used Himalayan pink salt because I’m fancy like that).


  1.  Make your preferred pizza dough according to the instructions and roll it on out.
  2. What I should have done and will next time is to sprinkle the crust with cinnamon first, instead of afterward (oops).
  3. Then pile on the brie, then the pecans and blackberries.
  4. Bake until pizza is cooked, pecans are toasted, and cheese is melted.
  5. Drizzle with honey and a little bit of salt.
  6. Slice up and serve happily.
