Pizza for dessert? Why not!
For my mom’s 60th birthday recently we made fruit pizza rather than a traditional birthday cake. It’s the perfect time of year for this delicious dessert as there’s lots of fresh fruit available. And this is a great way to incorporate some fruit into your dessert.
For our two fruit pizzas we used kiwi, peaches, bananas, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. Using different coloured fruit makes the pizza more colourful. I also encourage you to experiment with the fruit design on your pizza. You’ll notice in the photos below that my two designs are slightly different.
A tip: allow yourself extra time to cut up the fruit, if needed, and place it on the pizza in a design. It can be a bit time consuming.
For the crust, we used a simple sugar cookie dough recipe. Please note that this recipe makes two large fruit pizzas in pizza pans (we used Pampered Chef stoneware).
