Strawberry/Berry Pizza

My sister Jamie had pinned this recipe on Pinterest. I thought it looked super good, so I told her that we should make it while I was visiting. Tonight was the night.

We had enough strawberries at one point, but by waiting until the last night of the trip and being in a house with 21 people in it... we ran low on strawberries when it came time to make this pizza. Not to fear, Jamie had frozen blueberries and suggested we use that for the filling instead. DONE. Blueberries and Strawberries go great together. So that is what I did and everyone loved it. In fact we might even like it better than all Strawberries but it is hard to say when you haven't tried it any other way.

Either way, I will be making it again, except next time I will double the recipe because I didn't think it made quite enough. Here is the recipe. Sorry my picture isn't great... but you get the idea.

Strawberry/ Berry Pizza

  • 1 C flour
  • 1/4 C powdered sugar
  • 1/2 C butter
  • 1 (8 oz.) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 C granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 C fresh strawberries, mashed
  • 4 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 8 - 10 strawberries sliced.
  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar and butter.
  • Form into a ball with hands and press into a 14 inch ungreased pizza pan (I used my Pampered Chef pizza stone)
  • Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes. Cool.
  • In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, vanilla, sugar and lemon juice.
  • Spread on cooled crust.
  • In a saucepan over medium heat, combine strawberries, sugar and cornstarch.
  • Simmer until thick and glossy. Cool.
  • Spread on top of cream cheese filling.
  • Cut fresh strawberries crosswise to make rounds that resemble pepperoni, place on pizza and serve
