Apple and Strawberry Dessert Pizza
Dessert pizzas are as much fun to make as they are to eat. My sisters and I had a lot of fun putting this one together and there weren’t any leftovers at the end of the night.
1. Chop an organic pink lady apple
2. Place the apple in a pan with butter over medium heat until it slightly softens
3. Slice the strawberries in half
4. Bake the pizza dough for 6 minutes at 475 degrees on a pizza stone
5. Spread Nutella Spread on the dough
6. Assemble the fruit toppings
Apple and strawberry dessert pizza is perfect if you are looking for a quick and easy pizza pizza to make with kids. The pizza has a lot of sugar, but it is a delicious treat!

Mixed Berry Pizza
Mixed berry pizza is a perfect pizza idea for Valentine’s Day, but the red, white, and blue colors make it equally appropriate for a Fourth of July pizza. I prebaked my regular homemade pizza dough for 4 minutes and then spread on ricotta cheese mixed with a little sugar as the base. Then I topped the pizza with raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries.
My mixed berry pizza is a fun pizza to make as a family. If you are looking for a pizza to make with your kids, they will have no trouble spreading on the ricotta or topping the pizza with berries. This is the second fruit pizza I’ve created and I’m certain I’ll create more in the future.
A few summers ago I prepared an American Flag Cake on the Fourth of July for aparty we were attending. Our friend Bryan really enjoyed the cake, so a few weeks later when we were having him and his wife Rebecca over for dinner I decided to prepare another tasty dessert. That’s when I first made Fruit Pizza. Bryan liked this dessert even better! Fruit pizza has been on my list since the beginning of the year, but I didn’t want to make it for a meal. So, when I got the invitation to Bryan and Rebecca’s Desserts on the Deck party I couldn’t resist making this pizza (especially since Bryan’s birthday is tomorrow).
I brushed the dough with melted butter and then sprinkled on sugar and cinnamon then let it bake. While the dough baked I washed strawberries, raspberries and blackberries. And after having just discovered fresh apricots and loving them, Andrew requested a sliced apricot in addition to the berries. To hold the fruit on the pizza I altered my mom’s killer lemon cheesecake filling recipe and slathered it on the baked dough. We carefully arranged the fruit and sliced the pizza in prep for the party, at which point my pizza cutter snapped. Pizza #40 was the straw that broke the pizza cutter’s back! Luckily, it didn’t damage the pizza and it tasted fantastic! Now, I think I’ll run out and stock up on pizza cutters.
