I made this striking black-and-white dessert pizza last night. It’s a variation on my fig mascarpone pizza, this time with a mixture of blackberries and figs. ‘Twas good! I meant to use a mixture of white and white whole wheat flour in the crust but ended up using a mix of white and regular whole wheat. Only one of my five tasters asked for a lighter crust. I used Jack Bishop’s whole wheat crust recipe from his Complete Italian Vegetarian Cookbook.
I’m getting ready for a family birthday party this weekend with at least 30 guests and will be cooking up a storm today: minty quinoa tabbouli, hummus, a somewhat healthy carrot cake and more. I’ll wait until tomorrow to make some of the last-minute items like fruit salad and sliced raw veggies. That plus getting the house ready ought to keep me busy. Yesterday I did lots of housecleaning and shopping but just had to get a skate in, too, to cut the stress. Can’t really do without it!
