Fruit Pizza

Fruit Pizza



This a universal dish as it has served me well in the dessert, breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack area.  You can replace strawberries with any kind of other berry.  I think that banana extract would be yummy in the cream cheese filling, too.  This is definitely and S meal with all its nut and creamy goodness!  

Ingredients:

Crust
1 c almond flour 
1c pecan flour
1/4 tsp sea salt 
1/2 c of sweetener
1/3 c melted butter
1/2 to 1 tsp of almond extract


Filling
8 oz. Greek yogurt cream cheese (Or half cream cheese half greek yogurt) SOFTENED!
1 tsp vanilla 
1 tsp of almond extract
1/4 c powdered Truvia
1/2 c whipping cream OR almond milk
1 tsp glucci

Glaze Topping
2 c strawberries blended with 1 Tbsp lemon juice
*I used a bag of frozen then defrost strawberries.  I think they are sweeter and blend nicely)
sweetener to taste 
1/2 tsp glucci 
nuts & berries for topping

Directions:

Crust:
Mix well and pat in greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 10-15 min. Cool completely.  If you have to stick it in the freezer to speed things along because you're starving- go for it!

Filling: 
Beat all together except for the glucci.  Then when everything is mixed well, add your glucci, mix and then let rest about 5-6 min....THEN blend it again!  You'll get a nice thickened consistency by following these steps!

Glaze: 
Blend in the same manner as the filling, so that you get a nice thick strawberry sauce

Assembly like you would a pizza adding your toppings!


a chocolate topping  or homemade whipped cream would be yummy, too!


It's nice and thick!  I used a spring form!
