Fig, Walnut & Mascarpone Pizza with Pear

This pizza recipe is a bit of a different combination. You wouldn’t quite call it a dessert pizza, but is quite light and sweet and can definitely finish off a meal. I make my own plum sauce from our trees, and my sauce is quite light and tangy. If you can’t make your own, try an asian style plum sauce.


  • Plum Sauce
  • A small handful of Walnuts (freshly shelled makes a difference)
  • Mascarpone
  • Dried Figs
  • Honey (optional)
  • Thin slices of fresh Pear
  • Sugar
  • Lime juice


  1. Drizzle plum sauce over your prepared pizza base. You don’t want the base totally covered.
  2. Drizzle some honey if using – just some thin swirls.
  3. Scatter the pizza with halved figs and halved walnut pieces.
  4. Finish with chunks of mascarpone – I use teaspoon sized pieces.
  5. Carefully slide into the preheated oven using your peel and bake until the crust is golden. Be careful with this one as the nuts can burn easily.
  6. While the pizza is cooking, slice your pear thinly and put the pieces in a bowl with the juice of one lime, and a teaspoon of sugar. Toss together to coat. When the pizza is cooked, finish by dressing with the slices of fresh pear and serve!
