Happy Fourth of July….Dessert Pizza

083

This recipe will not disappoint!  Once again I am pulling out another “treasure” from the Satisfying Eats Cookbook!  This “Sugar” Cookie recipe is delicious and turning it into a crust was so easy!

Feel free to use any fruit you would like or arrange the berries in any pattern. I thought the flag pattern would be fun for Fourth of July!  I will be posting a Dairy Free version in a few days using the Chocolate Truffle Recipe as the “sauce,” stay tuned! 😉

NOTE: I used Stevia to achieve most of the sweetness. I finished the recipe off with coconut sugar for extra sweetness. I have used raw honey in the past but using the granular coconut sugar helps make the cookie a little drier (which you want).  Feel free to use your sweetener of choice.

Ingredients
  1. “Sugar” Cookie Crust

    • 1-3/4 cup almond flour (I use Honeyville)
    • 2 tbsp coconut flour
    • 1 tbsp baking powder
    • 1/4 tsp organic Kal Stevia OR 1/2 tsp. Organic Trader Joe's Stevia or sweetener of choice (to taste)
    • 2 tbsp coconut sugar (optional)
    • 1 egg white
    • 1/2 tbsp. pure vanilla extract
    • 6 tbsp. salted butter, room temperature

    Cream Cheese Frosting

    • 4 oz. cream cheese, room temperature

    • 1/4 tsp. pure vanilla extract

     

Instructions
  1. “Sugar” Cookie Crust

    Preheat oven to at 350° F. In medium bowl, mix dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients to dry and blend well until dough forms. Taste for sweetness.

    Place dough onto parchment paper and make a circular disk. Top with another piece of parchment and roll out until you have around a 10" circle.  Be sure dough thickness is uniform to insure even baking.  If dough doesn't roll out into a perfect circle, simply use a pizza cutter to trim the edges.  You can also create a rectangular pizza crust as well.

    Transfer dough (with bottom parchment) to pizza sheet and bake for 20-24 minutes or until edges are slightly brown. Allow to cool completely before adding Cream Cheese Frosting.

    Cream Cheese Frosting

    In medium bowl, blend cream cheese until smooth. Add vanilla, Stevia and heavy whipping cream. Blend until thick and spreadable. Taste for sweetness and adjust if needed.

    NOTE: If you want lots of frosting, double recipe.

    Assembly

    Spread Cream Cheese Frosting over cooled Crust.  Arrange blueberries, strawberries, kiwi, bananas, blackberries or raspberries in any pattern you would like.  Enjoy!

    I made this for Canada Day today. Mine was a little bigger (around 18″) so the crust was thinner. It turned out great.

    Your recipes all look amazing! I am in awe of all that you accomplish in general, and that you do this all with two little ones is truly a testament to your drive and passions to help others – and to eat well!

    I wonder if you have ever used Swerve as the sweetener. I have not tried your sweet recipes as no one in my family tolerates the taste of stevia — I have tried loads of brands, Kal included. We all get that after taste. Swerve seems to work though, with just a little bit of coconut sugar added. I am not a baker AT ALL. Give me a lump of meat and herbs and that is my idea of a good time. But I would love to try this dessert pizza for an event and am wondering how it might work with Swerve.

    Also, do you think Marscopone cheese would work instead of cream cheese. My family would love the cream cheese for sure! I am not a fan of it, though.

    Please note that I don’t mean to insult by asking for substitutions on something that I am sure you worked very hard to put together.

      Susan, thank you for your kind words. :) Yes, you can use any sweetener you like. Many people have had great success using swerve. Please see my “all about stevia” page for more information on my sweetener of choice.

      Yes, feel free to use marscopone. I use cream cheese because it is cheaper and easier to find been though I love it! I hope this helps!!
