To make this dessert pizza I created a compote from a fruit called Lipote. A few weeks ago we visited the La Vega Estate and Mr Manhin was gracious enough to show us around and he also gave us a few fruits to try. One of the fruits he gave us was Lipote, it was the first time I heard about this fruit. A berry that gets darker as it ripens. Tart in flavor with a hint of sweetness and the flesh is reminiscent of pommerac as they are actually relatives. Lipote may not be the easiest thing to get your hands on so some great substitutes are sorrel, sour cherries, blueberries, cranberries, strawberries, pears and apples.
