What could be better than pizza for dinner? Pizza for dessert!

Dessert pizzas are a really simple way to satisfy the sweet tooth of a crowd because they’re quick to assemble and easy to customize to the taste preferences of those eating it.

Fruity Dessert Pizza

I personally like to top mine with fruit for color and healthy sweetness, so I used kiwi, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, grapes and mango to create a gradient rainbow of colors. The presentation is simply perfect for spring!

Served on store-bought pizza dough for added convenience with a cream cheese, lemon curd and powdered sugar “sauce,” the eyes and taste buds are bound to love this sweet treat!

Ingredients

  • 1 package premade pizza dough, room temperature
  • 16 oz. Heinen's honey pecan cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup store-bought lemon curd
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • An assortment of Heinen's fresh pre-cut fruit (berries, kiwi, grapes and mango), enough to cover a 14-inch pizza
  • Honey and lemon zest, for topping

Instructions

  1. If you’re not working with Heinen’s pre-cut fruit, slice the whole fruit.
  2. Set the oven temperature according to the instructions on the pizza dough package. While the oven preheats, roll the dough into a 14-inch circle on a floured surface.
  3. Place the circular dough over a pizza peel or large tray and use a fork to poke holes all over to prohibit the dough from rising too much.
  4. Bake the dough according to the package instructions.
  5. In a food processor or high-powered blender, combine the cream cheese, lemon curd and powdered sugar.
  6. Once baked and lightly browned, remove the crust from the oven and let cool for 30 minutes.
  7. Spread the lemon curd and cream cheese mixture over the pizza in a thick layer.
  8. Place the cut fruit all over the pizza in any pattern you like.
  9. Drizzle with honey and finish with fresh lemon zest.
  10. Enjoy!
