Pizza is a great weekend meal, but fruit pizza is even better. With it’s creamy slightly sweet “sauce” it’s one of my most favorite, tasty desserts.
I wish I could tell you I came up with this one on my own. But this is actually a favorite straight from my momma’s kitchen.
She loves to serve this up at the holiday parties and really any special occasion where she can get some fresh strawberries.
Seeing as how strawberry season is coming up, this recipe is perfect for you to make with your fresh picked strawberries.
Mom makes it in a variety of ways using everything from kiwis, grapes and everything you see here.
I chose to go with a simple recipe of strawberries, mandarin oranges, and blueberries. But you can make it using any fruit combination you can think of.
You simply roll out and bake the cookie.
And top it with your “sauce”.
Top it with fruit….
…and that is all there is to it!
You can use fresh, frozen, or canned fruit. How I determine which I use is based on:
If it’s spring and summer and fresh fruit is sweet and juicy, I’ll roll with that.
If the store doesn’t have what I need in the fresh section, next stop is frozen fruit section.
Will I have time to slice up the fresh fruit before preparing it. If I am in a crunch, I’ll adjust accordingly.
While you don’t have to do it with freshly picked strawberries or use strawberries at all, this is perfect for your strawberry picking season.
If you’re not in RDU head to the google and see where you can grab some berries this strawberry season. Ashley over at MommyWeek has you covered for Atlanta.
