Fruit Pizza

I’m no stranger to desserts, so when the scorching summer weather came in, there was no excuse for me to not indulge in fruit pizza. It’s somewhat of a bad habit of mine to put dinner aside to dive into a dessert recipe (you can blame my notoriously short-focused attention), only to 2 hours later remember that I haven’t had a bite of dinner yet. But not need to fret about it.. because if you’re into the sweetness of a cream cheese frosting, fresh fruit and a buttery tart base, nothing should get in the way of you getting what you want, so brace yourselves.

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened at room temperature

Directions:

1:Preheat oven to 350F.

2: Combine wet ingredients and sugar for the crust:Β whisk the butter in a bowl until nice and creamy. You can do this manually or with an electric mixer, but I’ve found that doing it manually works just fine. Add in brown sugar, vanilla and egg. Continue to whisk until well combined.

3: Combine dry ingredients for the crust:Β Mix together flour, baking powder, cornstarch and salt. Bit by bit, add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Leave your mixture in the fridge for approximately 30 minutes while you prepare your frosting and slice your fruit.

4: Grease a pizza pan. Once the time has elapsed, take the dough out of the fridge and roll it out into the shape of a flat pizza crust. Place into the oven for approximately 22 minutes. Let the crust cool completely.

5: Frosting:Β Using an electric mixer, whisk the cream cheese until nice and creamy. Add in the butter and milk and continue mixing until combined. Add in the brown sugar, confectioner’s sugar, vanilla extract and mix once again.

6: Top the crust with the frosting and spread until even. Decorate with fruit toppings.

Enjoy!
