Fruit Pizza

With all the pizza making that has been going on in my house lately making something sweet was a must! Not to mention I was in the mood for something on the berry side of the fence. I’m a smoothy girl so berries stay in our fridge. Personally I’m not big on dessert pizzas, not that they aren’t good its just I’m more of a savory kind of girl, but fruit pizza, sign me up!

I had leftover pizza dough from a pizza I made so I used that as the base of this beauty, but any homemade or already prepared pizza dough will do.  Here’s a recipe to my Easy Pizza Dough. I’m not sure how an already prepared pizza crust would work with this but hey if that’s all you got, take a shot at it.

Maybe you have different fruit on hand, by all means experiment! Mangoes, blueberries, kiwi, O MY! The fruit pizza combinations are endless!! So don’t be afraid to experiment. I was pleasantly surprised at how well this turned out so I definitely plan on trying this same recipe with other fruit combinations in the very near future myself. My only suggestion would be if you are using fresh berries go for what’s in season. The berries or fruit will be at it’s peak of greatness. But if you find yourself having some “not so sweet” ones or you just have a major sweet tooth, don’t despair. If you add sugar a tablespoon at a time to your berry mixture it will sweeten your berries up a bit.
