  • 2 cup Blackberry Reàl

  • For flatbread:
  • 1 ½ teaspoons active dry yeast
  • ½ teaspoon honey
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

  • For topping:
  • [PRODUCT 1]
  • 2 cups mascarpone, at room temperature
  • 1 Tablespoon butter, at room temperature
  • 1 pint fresh blackberries
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • Fresh mint, for garnish


  1. Make the flatbread: Place yeast, honey, sugar, and warm water in a small bowl, and mix well. Let sit at room temperature for 5 minutes, until bubbly. 
  2. In a separate mixing bowl, combine flour and salt. Make a well in the flour. Slowly add the yeast mixture to the well, and mix thoroughly with your hands.
  3. Place the dough on a wooden board lightly dusted with flour. Knead with your hands until smooth, about TK minutes. Form the dough into a ball. Grease a large bowl with the oil, then add the dough. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit in a warm area for 1 hour, until doubled in size. 
  4. Preheat the oven to 500ºF. Cut the dough into 6–8 pieces. Roll each out to a ¼-inch thickness. 
  5. Combine the mascarpone and Blackberry Reàl; set aside.
  6. Place flatbreads on a baking sheet. Spread 1 teaspoon butter on each dough, and bake for 3 minutes. 
  7. Spread 1/4 cup of the cheese mixture onto each dough and bake an additional 3 minutes.
  8. Top with fresh blackberries and a sprinkle of sea salt, and serve garnished with fresh mint.
