Can we just bottle Fall up, and not let winter come?
I went on a frigid 4 mile run this morning! It was -1C outside which is colder than it has been lately. I thought I might turn into an ice cube. I did 4 miles in about 34 minutes. The hot shower was so welcome today!
Pizza is all I can think about since discovering that pizza dough is super easy to make! Among my 10 trials of pizza that I did on Friday night and Saturday morning, I had two other successful outcomes. I thought I would share those recipes with you today. Up first, the delicious dessert pizza. My original idea for Project Food Blog Challenge #5 was to do a fun twist on a traditional dessert pizza and then I bailed at the last minute and decided that it was a bit too predictable. It still turned out wonderful though.
Avocado-Lime Whip Fruit Medley Pizza in a Sugar Cinnamon Crust
- Homemade Cinnamon Sugar pizza dough (use same recipe here but use 2 tbsp sugar and 1.5 tsp cinnamon. Also sprinkle the entire crust before baking with turbinado sugar)
- 4 avocados
- Fresh lime juice from half a lime (approx 1 tsp)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste or 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup agave nectar
- 2-3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 1-2 tbsp coconut milk
- 12 tbsp icing sugar (confectioner’s)
Directions: In a food processor, add in the avocado, lime juice, and agave. Process until smooth. Now add in the vanilla, melted coconut oil, and coconut milk. As the last step, add in the icing sugar very gradually until the consistency you want is achieved. Cool in fridge for about 30 minutes before using. Spread over the base of cooled & cooked pizza crust.
- Fruit salsa: Chop up a mixture of strawberries, mandarin oranges, mango, kiwi, and raspberries. Add in blueberries too. You will want about 2-3 cups of the salsa.
- Fruit layer: Mandarin, strawberries (sliced), blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, kiwi (sliced), mango (sliced), and whatever else your little heart desires! Peach would be good too.
Directions: After you have spread on the avocado-lime whip, it is time to layer on the fruit. I started with an outer layer of fruit salsa, followed by a layer of sliced fruit. After those two layers, I did a very small layer of sprinkled coconut, followed by a layer of raspberries, and then finally fruit salsa. I left the inner circle open as I was going to put a large strawberry there, but then we ate it and that was that. ;)
Definite winner. I loved the avocado-lime whip too. It was a really unique way to change up the traditional cream cheese base. It was addicting and refreshing and I couldn’t stop eating it.
Up next…HUMMUS PIZZA with a curry-infused crust!! Oh my word, did I love this pizza.
Hummus Pizza on a Curry Infused Crust
- Homemade Curry infused pizza dough (use same recipe here but add in 1 tbsp good quality curry powder. Omit the other pizza herbs too.)
- My favourite hummus recipe
- Olive oil
Directions: After pizza dough is cooked and cooled for just a few minutes, spread on a huge layer of the hummus (I used 2 cups approx) and then sprinkle with paprika. Drizzle on lots of olive oil and serve.
This pizza was incredible. I was seriously addicted and needed an intervention.
They would make a fun appetizer too!
I have a few other ideas on my ‘pizza list’ that I still want to try out at some point! One of them includes Guacamole pizza. Mmmm.
If you could make any pizza combination in the world, what would you pick?? :)
I HAVE to try that dessert pizza!!! Oh my goodness gracious!
The fruit pizza looks great, normally I can’t eat them since I am allergic to cream cheese but this one I can do!
That fruit pizza looks amazing! I love how colorful it is.
Now I want to host a vegan pizza dinner party!! This looks absolutely fantastic…it’s a tough call between the three pizzas, but since I love sweets, I’m going to have to go with the fruit one!!
Ooo fruit pizza, i haven’t had that for SO long. i was wanting to make it this summer, but i kind of forgot
You have inspired me to make a Taco pizza, I think it would be so good with the guac. I also love hummus pizza but I like to add sliced tomatoes and cucumbers on top.
You should definitely make a guacamole pizza :) Or maybe a Mexican style one…
OMG I simply HAVE to try that sweet pizza! You are awesome Angela!!
Your fruit pizza looks not only delicious but BEAUTIFUL!
p.s. I’m *swooning* over the hummus pizza. Must. Make. Stat.
You are on a roll sister!
My dream pizza… a cinnamon oatmeal buttery crust, nutella for the sauce, white and milk chocolate drizzles and for a topping-crumbled cookies of course all over the place. ;)
Has this been done before…
Just one question– what did you do with all of the pizza you made?? Photos are beautiful as always :)
I am so glad you posted the fruit pizza recipe! The avocado-lime whip is genius!
Oh I love pizza–sweet and savory! I’ll have to try both of these recipes out!
I’m so curious to try that avocado-lime whip! That’s such a creative idea!
I know these already exist, but I’d love to try a sushi pizza. :D
The avacado-lime whip is intriguing. I bet it will taste good even if it isn’t on a pizza crust.
Perhaps a chocolate, bacon, cheese pizza … hehe! Do they make such a thing :-)
avocado and fruit?? together?! crazy, but i love the idea!
I really want to make a whole bunch of pizzas now.
Hi! Do you know if anyone has tried the crust of the fruit pizza with gluten free flour? It looks delicious!!!
Hey Melissa, Im sorry Im not sure! I would try reading through the comments to see if anyone has mentioned it. Let me know if you try it!
