Does your family like pizza? Mine does! It’s usually what I make each Friday night-a great way to start off the weekend. But regular pizza is not what I want to share with you right now. I want to share our fruit pizza with you. This makes a great healthier dessert, but we often eat it for breakfast. What a great way to start off the day -whole grains (although I’ve made and listed a grain free crust), probiotic filled yogurt cheese (although regular cream cheese works too), and all kinds of colorful fruits and berries. YUMMY! And it’s so pretty!
Here’s what you need:
*Fruit Pizza Crust:
(This crust will freeze well so double or triple the batch and freeze ahead for a quicker treat next time-just don’t forget to thaw overnight in the fridge.)
1/2 C butter softened
4 TBS honey
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract
1 1/2 C sprouted wheat flour (whole wheat will work)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Cream butter and honey with mixer. Add egg and extracts. Mix in flour, salt and baking powder until forms thick dough. Will be the consistency of cookie dough. Using your hands, flatten onto a pizza stone or in a baking dish. (If not using stoneware, be sure to oil dish well as this will stick.) Cook on 350 for 10-15 or until golden brown. Set aside to cool for about 5 min before spreading on cream.
8 oz yogurt cheese, cream cheese or homemade sour cream
2 TBS honey
Cream in mixer until cream is softened and spreads easily. Add more honey to taste if desired.
Once the crust has cooled about 5 min begin spreading on the cream. The warm crust will help it spread. Top with whatever fruit your heart desires. We like berries best, but bananas, peaches and kiwi are great too!
*Grain Free Crust (Almond Flour Scone):
2 C almond flour
1/4 C honey
1/2 tsp salt
5 TBS cold butter
1/2 C cream or homemade sour cream
Mix flour, honey, and salt. Cut in butter and mix well. This should be a crumbly mixture. Mix egg and cream together then add to flour mixture. Form a into a large, thin circle on baking stone. Bake on 425 for 10-15 min or until golden brown. (I would check this often as it cooks since almond flour tends to burn more easily than wheat flour.)
Now grab a cup of coffee or herbal tea, enjoy a healthy, yummy treat, and nourish your tummy as you stay warm!
