This recipe for a savory Blueberry, Feta, and Honey-Caramelized Onion Naan Pizza will surely surprise your tastebuds!
I saw a dear friend today. It had been too long since the last time we met, way too long. I’m not quite sure how that happened, but as I hugged her and marveled at how her children have grown so much, I made a quiet promise to myself that I will never let time slip like that from me again.
Life has a terrible habit of getting in the way, and as much as I embrace social media and the idea of staying connected through it, I realize that it can keep us apart. Seeing pictures of friends on Facebook is not the same as giving each other a hug in person, looking into their eyes, and hearing their laughter in person.
Living through the seasons reminds me of this, in an odd sort of way. When the berries and stone fruit return after many months, you remember that absence all the more and want to waste no time in savoring every moment you can while they are here.
You may wonder if I will ever stop with the blueberries, but I just can’t. Finding new ways to enjoy blueberries in savory dishes has occupied my thoughts these last several weeks, as you already know. So when I pulled out these gems from the oven the other day, I was on cloud nine. Plump blueberries bled their inky juice on pizzas that were smothered with ricotta and feta cheese and honey-caramelized onions. Each bite was everything I love when I make a savory fruit pizza – salty, sweet, savory and spicy, all melted together.
If there is one blueberry recipe you must try this summer, please promise me you will try this one. Do it while they are here, and share it with a friend. Pizza is always better that way.
It’s that time again! I love joining Becky from Vintage Mixer and our friends to share dishes that embrace eating seasonal! June is all about berries, and so much more. Check out these recipes for more #EatSeasonal inspiration.

Blueberry, Feta and Honey-Caramelized Onion Naan Pizza
- 2 naan flatbreads see notes below
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 cup thinly sliced red onion
- kosher salt
- pinch red pepper flakes
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
- 1/2 cup feta cheese
- 1 cup blueberries
- micro arugula or regular baby arugula
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange the naan/flatbread on the baking sheet and lightly spray or brush with water. Set aside.
- Heat the olive oil in a medium pan over medium low heat. Add the onion and season with a pinch of salt to taste and red pepper flakes. Cook the onions until it is wilted, about 3-5 minutes and stir in the honey, letting the onions caramelize. Remove from heat.
- While the onions cook, stir the ricotta and feta cheese in a small bowl. Spread the ricotta mixture over the naan/flatbread, and top with the honey caramelized onions. Sprinkle the blueberries on top.
- Place the naan pizzas into the oven and bake for about 10 minutes, or until the blueberries are just about ready to burst, the cheese has softened, and the naan is toasted. Remove from oven, sprinkle with arugula and enjoy immediately.
After a cancer diagnosis I went on a vegan diet and sadly learned that vegan pizza imitating the real thing just can’t cut it. So I got creative. Your recipe is ridiculously good even with vegan ricotta and feta. I have to guilt my non-vegan husband into not eating too much. (“Remember honey, I’m eating this pizza to live long and prosper.”) Thanks much. I can’t wait to make it again!
Hi Anita, transitioning to a vegan diet is challenging, and I’m so happy to hear that you could enjoy this recipe with vegan cheeses! Thinking of you as you navigate your cancer diagnosis. xo
Can this recipe be served at room temp.
Yes, Peggy, you can serve the Blueberry Feta and Honey Naan Pizza at room temperature :)
What’s a good substitute for cheese, both the ricotta and feta bring on migraines for me. I would love to try this pizza.
Sorry to hear that ricotta and feta bring on migraines! I would suggest trying goat cheese!
Sounds kind of interesting
It really is, Liz, thank you! I hope you get to give it a try!
Made this as a starter for Xmas Dinner. Fabulous! Family loved it and I’ll definitely make it again. So many possibilities for additions/different – like strawberries, garlic … also, a great little addition was drizzling a bit of balsamic glaze over top. Thank you! Merry Christmas!
Jane, I am so thrilled that your family enjoyed it! You’re right, there are so many ways to play around with the recipe!! I hope you all had a lovely holiday season!
Can you substitute ricotta with cottage cheese?
I haven’t tried it, Jenni, but it should work! Definitely salt the cottage cheese before using.
I just stumbled upon this recipe today. My husband and I are down in Key West vacationing and I was looking for some different appetizers to make and enjoy while sitting at the pool under the swaying palm trees! I am going to the grocery store right now to get the ingredients. CANNOT WAIT TO MAKE THIS, it looks DELICIOUS!
Hi, Shaunaly! This will be perfect to enjoy while you soak in some sun and relaxation under those palm trees! Enjoy the recipe, it’s one of my favorites!

Can you use frozen blueberries
Yes, I would imagine you could, though I haven’t tested it myself. I would just make sure you put the blueberries on at the last minute and pop it into the oven right away. There could be extra liquid when it bakes, so just be aware of that! Let me know how it goes!
We made this last night! Fantastic….Confession,I would eat this for breakfast. Nann is hard to come by out here unless I travel into town and hit a specialty market but we make our own version that we often use out camping. Drizzled with a little balsamic vinegar as well and devoured. Thanks for the recipe. This will definitely be a common rotation at our place.
I am so glad you enjoyed the recipe, Diane, and imagine that it is even better with your homemade version of naan!

One of the new recipes I’m trying this weekend

If you meant to email the recipe, there is an email button under the “Share This” part under the recipe card that should help. Enjoy the pizza, it’s one of my personal favorites!
Hi there! Could you recommend a substitute for the feta cheese part? Thanks!
Hi Helen, if you can’t use feta, I suggest goat cheese or gorgonzola! The feta adds a lovely saltiness, and both of these are bold cheeses that would work. Let me know how it works out!
Wow! It’s sooo good with gorgonzola! My guests will love this! Thank you!
I have made this recipe several times now, I always get so many compliments. I have also used frozen blueberries that I defrosted in this recipe, and it comes out great.
Hi Sandra, I am so glad that this recipe has been a success for you! It’s definitely one of my personal favorites, too!
This recipe is so easy and delicious, perfect for those days when you are entertaining and short on time. Never fails to impress with taste and presentation.
Diane, I can’t think of a better compliment. Thank you so much, I’m glad you love the recipe!
Could you do these in an air fryer?
Made this for guests and they LOVED it! Unfortunately, I could not try it because I have celiac. I need to find a good recipe for gluten free naan so I can have it.
I’m thrilled that your guests loved it, Lynn, and hope that you can find a good gluten-free naan option so you can try it, too! Bob’s Red Mill has a gluten-free naan recipe that you might want to try.
I haven’t tried this recipe yet but it looks delicious. I have celiac and I use gluten free naan. The name is B-free.
Ah, good to know! I’ll keep that brand in mind!
what kind of blueberries did you use? wild or regular (ordinary) ones-those with white flash, man-grown?;) thanks!
Hi Katja, I used regular blueberries from the market! But if you have wild blueberries, I’m sure that would be incredible.
Delicious flavors that you would not think to put on a pizza. But it works! Great dish!
I’m so glad you loved it, Rose! It really is unexpected but so delicious!
I have made this several times, and it’s incredibly delicious. I’m making them today into individual naan pizzas. One for each of my guests! Yum and thank u❤
I am SO happy to hear that, Jennifer, thank you! Individual naan pizzas are so fun for entertaining!
Thanks for sharing! How far ahead of time can I make it?
Hi Vanessa, you can make the components and assemble the pizzas a day in advance, then pop them in the oven to bake when you want to serve them!
This looks so good! What a great combination of savory and sweet flavors for fall!
Thank you so much, Suzanne!

Yummy flatbread from Birthday at Beth’s.. I guess the green stuff was arugula, not spinach
Hi Patricia! I believe you probably meant to share/email this recipe, but it looks like you left a comment instead! Next time, there is an email button under the “Share This” part under the recipe card that should help. I’m glad you love the flatbread!
Making this again today, to serve along side of a bottle of rose’. This is so impressive looking and really, so simple. It’s also very versatile and I think the topping are endless. Absolutely love this recipe!!!
Hi Lori, a belated but very sincere thank you for your comment! I’m so glad you like the Blueberry Pizza — pairing it with a glass of rosé is perfection!
I would definitely have to save room for one of your desserts.
Do I need to double this mixture to do both naan in package?? Thanks
Hi James, there should be enough topping for the standard double naan package from Stonefire naan. If you happen to use a different brand and the naan is larger, then you may have to double it. Luckily, it’s easy to whip up!
I loved your recipe. I bet that pizza must be tasting sweet and tangy at the same time and I’m honestly so excited to try this. :)
Thanks, Talia! Hope you enjoy it!!
