Sweet pizza or pizza for dessert with sourdough crust, a beautiful creamy sauce will satisfy anyone. I must mention that it is a healthy dessert!

Word pizza for any American child is a second word after mommy.

Pizza for Friday night dinner sounds very familiar for most of you. But pizza for dessert, pizza for sweet tooth eaters is not something too popular.

But not in my house, just about any scraps/pieces of dough can be turned into a beautiful treat after a meal such as a dessert pizza!

Yes, any pizza dough can be used for either sweet or savory pizza.

This recipe is so easy to tweak and change a bit here and there in order to make it to your own liking.

This time I made pizza with left over dough from making these delicious Sourdough Cinnamon Rolls with Walnuts:

one cinnamon roll in my hands and a whole tray of baked cinnamon rolls

But the dough for regular pizza that you can get in any grocery is fine too or use one of my pizza dough recipes.


WHAT IS GOOD ABOUT THIS PIZZA FOR DESSERT?

  • Can be done under 30 minutes, and looks so festive.

  • Can be made with any fruit or berries of your choice, and if you like to add a bit of chocolate to the topping, why not?

  • Homemade sourdough crust is better for your digestive system and can be a nice treat for anyone who is Gluten sensitive. Eating more fermented baked goods provides a lot of benefits to your body. The Lactobacillus bacteria and wild yeast pre-digest the sugars in the flour during the slow-rise process so the bread is easier for humans to digest. This also reduces the phytic acid that is naturally present in grains that usually stops the body from absorbing minerals. The pre-digestion process during fermentation can reduce the amount of phytic acid up to 50%.

  • The sweet cream/frosting is easy to make and has only 3 ingredients: cream cheese, honey (local raw honey is always my first choice, and should be yours too) and vanilla extract. No SUGAR added!

  • This sweet pizza project can be great to do with kiddos for special occasions or as an every day after meal dessert. Use it also as an after school snack, for breakfast, brunch, and maybe even a midnight snack.


WHAT DO YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS PIZZA ?

Dough - in this recipe I used this dough, it's rich and slightly sweet, but regular pizza dough works too. Sometimes I use my sourdough pizza crust for this recipe as well.

Cream cheese or kefir cheese - when I video shot this recipe I wanted it to be friendly for busy moms, specially working moms who come from work still want to put good food on the table. Therefore, I used the staple ingredient cream cheese, which is inexpensive and available. But for my family most of the time, it's kefir cheese. I'm a big kefir lover and have not lived one day without my ferments, so to make kefir and kefir cheese is my daily routine.

Vanilla extract - always a nice addition to all desserts, right?

Honey - I used just a 1/4 cup in this cream cheese pizza frosting, but you can add up to 1/2 cup, if you like very sweet. Raw local honey is the best protection for seasonal allergies, so it's always my first choice. Also let's not forget honey is a prebiotic (food for your good bacteria)

Topping - use your imagination and whatever looks good. I used blood oranges, my kids go crazy about them. They also fight over who gets more strawberries, blueberries, etc. My oldest son requested the chocolate, so I chopped up some my favorite chocolate bar.

Let's do it...


Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Total time: 25 minutes

Serves: 16 inches pizza

ingredients

Ingredients for ONE 16 inch pizza for dessert:

1 package (1 lb.) of pizza dough or use sourdough pizza crust (in the video I used sweet sourdough dough that I had leftover. FYI... sourdough dough is better for you too!)

1 package cream cheese or kefir cheese

1/4 cup soft butter (I USED salted)

1/4 cup raw local honey

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 cup sliced fruit/berries of your choice (I used blood oranges and strawberries)

1/2 cup chopped chocolate (in the video I used my favorite dark chocolate bar)


Directions

  • Preheat your oven to 375F.

  • Take your pizza baking sheet or any sheet that you like, grease little bit with olive oil and set aside. You can bake directly on a pizza stone, then skip this step all together.

  • Roll the dough and place on a sheet. Poke with a fork to prevent puffiness. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Keep eye on it.

  • Take out and let it cool down to the room temperature. Placing pizza crust on a granite counter top will speed up this process.

  • In an electric mixer add room temperature cream cheese, butter, vanilla extract and honey, using whisk attachment whisk it up.

  • With offset spatula spread cream cheese mixture on a pizza. Arrange your fruit toppings and chocolate as you like. Glaze with melted honey if you like to see glossy fruits. Its totally optional.

  • Slice, take a picture, share this recipe with your friends on social media and take a good bite. ENJOY! I hope this Pizza for Dessert will make your loved ones smile. I hope you'll make this recipe soon. If you do, please tag me #innichka_chef  on Instagram, Facebook, Patreon or Pinterest.
