Directions

  1. For crusts, in a large bowl stir together 1/2 cup of the flour and the yeast; stir in 1/2 cup of the warm water. Let stand about 5 minutes or until mixture is foamy. Stir in the remaining 2 cups flour, the remaining 1/4 cup warm water, 3 tablespoons oil, and 1 teaspoon salt. Using floured hands, knead to make a soft dough that is smooth, adding additional flour if necessary. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 2 hours.
  2. In a food processor combine mascarpone cheese, creme fraiche, chives, parsley, shallot, lemon peel, dash salt, and pepper. Cover and process until smooth.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Divide dough in half. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Grease an extra-large baking sheet with additional oil and sprinkle with cornmeal; set aside.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll each dough portion into a 10- to 12-inch round. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Brush with additional oil and prick with a fork. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until light brown and slightly puffed. Cool slightly.
  5. Carefully spread crusts with mascarpone cheese mixture and top with cherries. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes more or until crusts are golden and cherries are lightly browned. Cool slightly.
  6. Top pizzas with arugula and drizzle with honey. Cut into wedges.

From the Test Kitchen

Try these variations to make this pizza your own: Substitute fresh basil leaves for the arugula; try tarragon in place of the chives; or replace the mascarpone with part-skim ricotta; Try red grapes for the cherries.
