An appetizer perfect for seasonal blueberries. Warm naan layered with warm goat cheese mixed with fresh thyme and honey. Topped with fresh blueberries, and a touch of honey. A delicious creamy, sweet, and savory combo.
This is ending Blueberry Week for me, and I hope that you have had the opportunity to stock-up on all thing blueberry! I saved one of my favorite blueberry recipes for last because it is one of my all-time favorite combinations.
I love the combination of blueberries and goat cheese, and my Blueberry, Honey, and Goat Cheese Naan Pizza is out of this world delicious. Besides being delicious this recipe is so simple, and a fantastic back-pocket recipe to keep when you need to get a quick appetizer together.
I love to use mini naan dippers for this appetizer. There are many types of naan bread out there, and larger will work find, but you will need to put them to make the smaller portion sizes.
I love the flavor of the creamy goat cheese and the fresh thyme. I warm mine in the oven, and the cheese is so soft and warm. I like to stir a little honey into the cheese as well. Fresh blueberries and honey on top finish these little bites, and it is heavenly!

Frequently Asked Questions:
I don’t like goat cheese, but love blueberries- can I sub the cheese?
Taking away the goat cheese will change the flavor (likely your goal), but the texture will be different. I have not tested cream cheese, but I imagine it will produce a similar result. Another option could be ricotta mixed with the yogurt. Again, consistency and flavor will be different.
I am out of thyme- can I use a different herb?
For sure! Try some chopped fresh basil! I love the combination of basil and goat cheese just as much as thyme.
Can I use a different berry?
Sure! Give chopped strawberries or blackberries a try!
I am having trouble finding naan – can you suggest a substitution?
Naan is really fluffy and soft. You could use pita, but it will not be as soft as naan. You could make this on rounds of french bread. If you use bread reduce the baking time to 4-5 minutes so the bread does not get too toasty.
Do I need to serve this warm?
Nope! I prefer the toasted naan and I love creamy warm goat cheese. However, this appetizer is amazing cold as well.
Can I use goat cheese crumbles?
I have not tested this, but I don’t think it will produce the creamy topping to spread over the naan so I would not suggest it.
Thanks again for hangin’ with me for Blueberry Week! Wisconsin is heading into a heat wave today, and we are escaping to the lake. My kiddos both love to swim, and it a perfect way to cool off. Not to mention that my sister and I have spent an absurd amount of money on inflatable water floats. My personal favorite is this margarita and the doughnut. However, I just bought some floating chairs, and those might take the cake….but I really want this whoopee cushion and balloon animal!
