Strawberry Pizza

Spring is THE best time for anything strawberry. This is one of our very favorites! I made it this week, took pics of the process, and served it to our amazing small group. Strawberry Pizza, decaf coffee, great conversation, laughing and praying together… What could be better?

Crust:

  • 1 1/2 Cups Flour (I used a soft whole wheat flour, but any flour will do.)
  • 1/2 Cup butter
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Oil (You can use all butter if you’d rather.)
  • 1/4 Cup brown sugar (I used Coconut Palm Sugar)
  • 1/2 Cup chopped pecans

Combine crust ingredients and spread on pizza pan. Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 15 minutes. Let cool completely.

Filling:

  • 1  8 ounce package cream cheese
  • 3/4 Cup powdered sugar
  • 1  8 ounce container whipped topping

Mix together cream cheese and powdered sugar. Fold in whipped topping. Spread this ridiculous yumminess over cooled crust.

Topping:

  • 1  3 ounce package strawberry gelatin
  • 1/2 Cup sugar
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 Cup water, divided (Pay attention to “divided!”)
  • 4 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 4 Cups sliced strawberries

Combine gelatin, sugar, salt, and 1/2 Cup of the water. Use the other 1/2 Cup of water and dissolve cornstarch. Stir cornstarch water into gelatin mixture. Cook over medium heat until thickened. Stir in sliced strawberries to coat. Cool.

Chill pizza.

Enjoy with family and friends! If it’s not gone, it will call your name all night long… Fair warning.

Here are a few of the ingredients I used. I try to find natural and/or organic substitutes for as many ingredients as possible. I’m just weird that way.

    Made it for our community group last night and they loved it!! I did end up spreading my crust out too much and it was too thin for my liking. Oh well! Thanks!

    Made for my SG last month. Raised the dessert bar several notches. Even the guy who doesn’t generally eat desserts had seconds and asked for the receipe. Shared with my chef brother in NH who shared it on the radio this am in NH. The host after trying it said “It’s fantastic.” Thanks for sharing.
