Strawberry Pizza
  • 1/2 pound butter (two sticks)
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup strawberry purée (about 4 fresh strawberries in a blender)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 pints fresh strawberries
  • GLAZE (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon water
  1. CRUST
  2. Cream together butter and sugar with a mixer until fluffy; add egg, baking powder, salt and vanilla until mixture is smooth; add flour and mix until a smooth dough is formed. Place finished dough in between two sheets of wax paper and refrigerate for about 20 minutes. Remove from refrigerator and roll the dough out to about a 1/4-inch thickness and in a round shape. Place the dough in a greased 12-inch pizza pan and bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 25 minutes or until crust is a light brown. Cool completely.
  4. Combine cream cheese, purée, honey, and sugar until smooth. Spread evenly over the cooled cookie crust, leaving a 1/2-inch border uncovered. Place whole strawberries around the outside border and use sliced berries to fill in the middle of the pizza.
  5. GLAZE (optional)
  6. Combine honey and water and brush over the top of finished pizza.
