Fruit Pizza


Avocado-Lime Whip Fruit Medley Pizza in a Sugar Cinnamon Crust

Pizza Dough:
  • Homemade Cinnamon Sugar pizza dough (use same recipe here but use 2 tbsp sugar and 1.5 tsp cinnamon. Also sprinkle the entire crust before baking with turbinado sugar)

Avocado-Lime Whip:
  • 4 avocados
  • Fresh lime juice from half a lime (approx 1 tsp)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste or 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 2-3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1-2 tbsp coconut milk
  • 12 tbsp icing sugar (confectioner’s)

Directions: In a food processor, add in the avocado, lime juice, and agave. Process until smooth. Now add in the vanilla, melted coconut oil, and coconut milk. As the last step, add in the icing sugar very gradually until the consistency you want is achieved. Cool in fridge for about 30 minutes before using. Spread over the base of cooled & cooked pizza crust.
Fruit Medley:
  • Fruit salsa: Chop up a mixture of strawberries, mandarin oranges, mango, kiwi, and raspberries. Add in blueberries too. You will want about 2-3 cups of the salsa.
  • Fruit layer: Mandarin, strawberries (sliced), blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, kiwi (sliced), mango (sliced), and whatever else your little heart desires! Peach would be good too.

Directions: After you have spread on the avocado-lime whip, it is time to layer on the fruit. I started with an outer layer of fruit salsa, followed by a layer of sliced fruit. After those two layers, I did a very small layer of sprinkled coconut, followed by a layer of raspberries, and then finally fruit salsa. I left the inner circle open as I was going to put a large strawberry there, but then we ate it and that was that. ;)
Eric and I both LOVED this dessert pizza! Definite winner. I loved the avocado-lime whip too. It was a really unique way to change up the traditional cream cheese base. It was addicting and refreshing and I couldn’t stop eating it.
