Fruit pizza is great as dessert but is also perfect for breakfast. A display of different colors, fruit pizza is a fun way of serving and eating fruits. Kids will love it. And you sure will love it, too. Here is how you can make fruit pizza for breakfast.
- Cook the dough. You need cookie dough for fruit pizza, which you can buy from any supermarket. Prepare the dough as instructed in the label. Then, flatten it into a round pizza crust. Put it in a baking sheet; remember to leave the sheet ungreased. Place the cookie dough in the oven and bake in 350° F for 10 to 12 minutes. After the dough turns brown, remove it from the oven. Set aside and let it cool.
- Choose the fruits. Choose any fruits you want for the fruit pizza. You can have apples, kiwis, grapes, oranges, peaches, blueberries, pineapple chunks, and strawberries. Make sure to slice them into bite-size pieces. You can use fresh fruits for this, but canned fruits will work just as fine.
- Glaze the cookie dough. Put two cups of cream cheese, ½ teaspoon of vanilla, and 1/3 cup of sugar in one mixing bowl. Mix the ingredients well until they blend together. Then, brush this mixture onto the cookie dough. Make sure to spread a thick amount of the mixture.
- Arrange the fruit slices. Get all your fruit slices and lay them over the cookie dough. Make sure to arrange them beautifully, distributing the fruit slices evenly onto the dough. The fruit pizza will look magically colorful, and your kids will naturally get attracted to it.
- Glaze the fruits. Heat one tablespoon of sugar, two cups of apple juice, and two teaspoons of cornstarch in a small saucepan. Stir until the glaze thickens. Usually, it takes three to five minutes to get the right consistency. When the mixture is all ready, remove it from heat and allow the mixture to cool. Then, spread this mixture over the fruits.
- Serve. First, you need to refrigerate the fruit pizza for about an hour. Let it cool. Then, cut the fruit pizza in the same way you cut ordinary pizza. Serve it chilled.
You have a lot of options when it comes to crust glaze and fruit glaze.
For instance, instead of using cream cheese, vanilla, and sugar, you can
spread whipping cream over the fruit pizza crust. You can also make use
of marshmallow cream and cream cheese. For the fruit glaze, you can try
spreading jam. Or if you want, you can heat the juice of the canned
fruits (pineapple and apple will work best) and brush all across the
fruit pizza. Try to make modifications. Especially if you serve fruit
pizza almost regularly, you want to tweak your recipe or add some
exciting ingredients. Of course, you have to make sure that your
ingredient combination is not only pleasing to look at but is great
tasting, too. The ultimate goal here is to keep the kids liking your
