Healthy Recipe: Makeover Fruit Pizza Recipe

Posted Mar 23 2010 4:18pm

Springs arrived and the weather is getting better (at least warmer here) and the appetite to eat fresh food is increasing. One of my favorite meals is homemade Pizza, usually I made it with tuna or chorizo , onions, mushrooms, fresh tomato and olives. Yummy!!

Well, today I bring here a totally different type of Pizza; a Pizza made with fresh fruit. I found this recipe at Taste of Home . The photo is from the site too.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 1 package (8 ounces) reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups halved fresh strawberries
  • 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges , drained
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

GLAZE:

  • 5 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1-1/4 cups unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine flour and confectioners’ sugar. Cut in butter until crumbly. Press onto an ungreased 12-in. pizza pan. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until very lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.
  • In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Spread over crust. Arrange the strawberries, oranges and blueberries on top.
  • For glaze, in a small saucepan, combine the cornstarch, pineapple juice and lemon juice until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Cool slightly. Drizzle over fruit. Refrigerate until chilled. Yield: 16 servings.
