Strawberry pizza

June 13, 2009

If you make anything with strawberries this summer, you’ve got to try this recipe for strawberry pizza.  It is soooo delicious!  Jim and I practically ate the whole thing by ourselves.  Look at these pictures and you’ll see why.  Prepare to drool.

See what I mean?  It’s just the perfect summer dessert.  Plus, it’s easy to make and the presentation is wonderful.

Recipe:  Strawberry Pizza

8 ounce package of cream cheese, divided  (I used light cream cheese)

2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, chilled

1 c. baking mix, such as Bisquick

2 Tbsp. honey

1/4 c. granulated sugar

1/4 tsp. lemon zest  (I substituted with 1/2 tsp. pure lemon extract)

1 1/2 quarts of strawberries, cleaned and hulled, sliced in half and lightly patted to dry

white or dark chocolate, for garnish

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Lightly spray a 12″ pizza pan with cooking spray.

Cut 3 oz. cream cheese and 2 Tbsp. butter into baking mix.  Mixture will resemble coarse crumbs.  Form dough into a ball, then pat out onto the pizza pan.  The crust will be very thin.  (Take your time with this step.  At first it doesn’t seem like you will have enough dough, but as you work it toward the edges it will cover the whole pan.) Bake for 6-8 minutes or until crust is lightly brown.  Cool completely.

Cream together 5 oz. of cream cheese, honey, sugar, and lemon zest or extract until smooth.

Assemble pizza just before serving, if possible.  The crust becomes softer if made too far in advance.  Spread the cream cheese mixture onto the cooled crust.  Arrange the sliced strawberries in a circular pattern over the crust, starting with one berry in the center.

Melt chocolate in the microwave at 30 second intervals, at reduced power, until melted.  Drizzle over strawberries.   Cut into 10-12 slices and serve.  (Unless you invite Jim and me over!)

    CookiePie – Thank you, and it IS good. : )

    Sarah – I’ll tell you, I used a pizza cutter and did not have such an easy time cutting it. Maybe a knife would work better cutting through all those berries neatly.

    Ingrid – Hope you try it and come back and tell me.

    What a delicious looking pizza! So so pretty and it does sound so easy to make. I have not tried this but someone told me to spread a very thin layer of melted chocolate (white, milk , or dark) on the crust, let is set then put the toppings on- this will prevent the crust from getting soggy. We’ll have to try it and see but I wonder if it would make it too sweet? Hmmm…

    The white chocolate drizzle looks so great! This looks very delicious.

    I am getting in touch with you to let you know about a “blog” of sorts that I’ve started, called It’s a place where those of us who have had our photographs declined from TasteSpotting, FoodGawker or Photo Grazing can submit and have that same work published to help drive traffic to our sites.
