You Thought Pizza Was Just For Dinner - Mission Fruit Continues With This Good-For-You Raspberry Dessert Pizza

Posted Jan 23 2009 2:22pm
The recent peanut butter recall threw me off my “Mission Fruit” postings for a little while. There were a couple of other fruit-based recipes I’ve successfully tried out on my kids that I wanted to share with you. Given the upcoming weekend, I thought I would share with you a recipe for Raspberry Dessert Pizza. This low calorie, fresh-fruit dessert makes a special weekend treat for just the family or can even stand-up to serving guests.

Raspberry Dessert Pizza
Serves 8

2/3 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
½ cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 T sugar
1 t cinnamon
¼ t baking soda
2 T canola oil
3 T plain or vanilla-flavored yogurt
1/3 cup chocolate chips

¼ cup raspberry jam, preserves or fruit spread*
¾ t almond or vanilla extract
Pint of fresh raspberries (if unavailable feel free to use frozen)
2 T sliced or chopped almonds (optional)

  • Heat oven to 375.

  • In medium bowl combine oats through baking soda. Stir in oil and yogurt until stiff dough forms. If dough is too stiff add a little more yogurt (go slowly).

  • With slightly oiled hands, spread and flattened dough, creating a 10” circle on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 375 for 10 to 12 minutes.

  • Once out of the oven, evenly sprinkle the top of the crust with chocolate chips and place back in oven until chocolate begins to melt, about 3-4 minutes. Let cool.

  • In a microwavable bowl place raspberry jam and extract. Microwave on high for 5-12 seconds, or until melted. Spread generously over cooled crust, leaving a little left in the bowl.

  • Top dessert pizza with raspberries and then spread remaining jam on top. Sprinkle with almonds.

  • Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving. Stores nicely in fridge for a couple of days.

  • Cut into 8 wedges – a pizza cutter works really well.

  • Hope you and your family enjoy this guilt-free treat. Happy weekend!

    * I like to use the preserves from Trader Joe's.
