Brioche pizza topped with apricots and yogurt covered almonds on the parchment paper

Enjoy the irresistible flavor of apricots on this homemade sweet brioche dessert - apricot pizza. Serve it at any entertaining party and watch it disappear before your very eyes. The recipe made in less than 30 minutes with the ready brioche dough is a keeper.

Ingredients

Scale

17.6 oz (500 g) brioche dough

For the mascarpone frosting:

  • 2.4 oz (70 g) butter, softened
  • 2.8 oz (80 g) brown sugar
  • 2.8 oz (80 g) mascarpone

For the topping:

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 355 degrees F/180 C.
  2. Take the brioche dough. Spread it in a disc 12 inches/30 cm in diameter and place it on a baking sheet covered with the parchment paper. Cover with a cloth and let it grow at room temperature for one hour.
  3. To make the filling, mix the softened butter with brown sugar and mascarpone. Spread this mixture over the dough. Cut each apricot into eight wedges and arrange on top of the pizza. Bake it for about 20 minutes. Take it from the oven; let it slightly cool down.
  4. Meanwhile, crush yogurt covered almonds and sprinkle the cooled pizza. Cut with a pizza cutter and serve.

Notes

  1. Follow this French Brioche recipe to make the fruit pizza dough yourself. You will end up with the brioche dough a bit over 17.6 oz (500 g).
  2. Do not spray or grease the parchment paper. The brioche dough is quite sticky to work with; so, use a bit of all-purpose flour to spread the dough over the parchment.
  3. Spread the fruit pizza frosting up to the pizza edges or leave some dough along the edges uncovered.
  4. Get creative with the apricot topping: arrange the fruit over the top of the mascarpone frosting in a concentric ring or another way you desire.
  5. Replace fresh apricots with other stone fruits such as fresh peaches or nectarines. Combine different stone fruits for the best flavor and pretty patterns.
  6. Let the ready pizza slightly cool down before sprinkling it with crushed yogurt covered almonds; otherwise, they will start melting.
