Pass the Cook Book Club: Cherry Cobbler Pizza

Last month, a few of the bloggers on my blogroll were posting a recipe with something called Pass the Cook Book Club. I was really intrigued and found out that Kita of Pass the Sushi had started a really awesome little club. Basically each month a new cookbook is chosen and members get to choose one recipe from three to make and review.

This month (the second month!) the cookbook was Guy Fieri Food [the one pictured above] and we got to choose between Cherry Cobbler Pizza, Asian Fried Quinoa, and Snake Bite. I decided immediately to go with the Cherry Cobbler Pizza.

Cherry Cobbler Pizza | A yummy #dessert for the Pass the Cook Book Club

I am a huge fan of cobbler and I adore cherry desserts. Whilest I had no mascarpone (and desperately want to do this recipe again with it, it was still a fantastic dessert. We have homemade pizza nearly every Friday, so it can never hurt to have a dessert pizza to serve up with the main dish pizza. Our friends that were over that night loved it too!

Cherry Cobbler Pizza (Pg 398) - I halved the recipe - what follows makes 1 pizza (Print)
What you need:

  • 1/2 cup quick rolled oats
  • 1 Tbsp. firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • fine sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 pizza dough recipe
  • 1 (21 oz.) can cherry pie filling
  • 1/4 cup mascarpone cheese, room temp [I could not find :( This was thus omitted]
  1. Mix together the oats, brown sugar, butter, a pinch of salt, and cinnamon.
  2. Stretch pizza dough to fit pizza pan. Top with cherry pie filling and then oat mixture.
  3. Bake at 450* for 10 to 12 minutes or until crust is golden brown
  4. Garnish with mascarpone, slice and serve.
