    lolablitz's Note:

    ETA: Help! I need help developing this recipe. I made it but the sauce needs help. Any chefs out there willing to help me with stronger sauce ideas? Something needs to balance the sweetness of the dates a bit more. Maybe a denser balsamic-based sauce? I picked up some dates at Trader Joe's yesterday and thought they'd be really good on a pizza, so this is what I'm going to use them for this Pizza Friday. This (doubled) is The Best pizza dough to use for any pizzas and will certainly compliment mine: Easy Healthy Whole Wheat Flax Pizza Crust from I Can't Believe It's Healthy. Be sure to double or triple it. We're too wimpy for gorgonzola and don't like feta or goat cheese, but if you want to bump the sophistication level of this pie to lofty heights...

      I was going to suggest goat cheese, but ran into the last sentence of your intro.. How about trying cream cheese? Its much milder than goat cheese and just might be able to bring the flavors together for you. I use it for a variety of pizzas, its awesome..
