With Memorial Day and July 4th coming up shortly, I wanted to make a Red, White, and Blue Pizza Recipe. A challenge if you will!
Do you know how many foods are red, white, and blue??
I went through a wide range of failed red, white and blue cupcakes, strawberry cake (total icing disaster) and red velvet cake that just didn’t quite capture what I was looking for.
This entire time I have been wanting to focus on fruit because honestly, when I think of July 4th, I think of Strawberries and Cream, watermelon slices, and all sorts of fresh fruits. Even so, I was afraid to use fruit because when you are talking about a challenge, how “guilty” can a bowl of strawberries get?
Then I realized I was thinking way too literally…the strawberries just needed to be bathed in something guilty. I have seen “fruit” pizzas done so many different ways so here is mine to add to your ever growing recipes. I truly hope you love it and I would so love to hear about your rendition of this dessert.
Red, White, and Blue (Brownie) Pizza
- 1 package of brownie mix
- 1/3 cup boiling water
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1 egg
- 1 package of cream cheese
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- lots of fruit! i used strawberries, blueberries, bananas, raspberries
- optional edible glitter
Take brownie mix, water, oil and egg and blend. Spread in a pizza pan. I used a 9 inch to have a taller brownie, but you can use up to a 12 inch. Make sure the pan is greased and floured. Bake on 350 for 25 minutes.
Take softened cream cheese, sugar, egg, and vanilla and beat until smooth. Spread on brownie pizza and bake 15 more minutes. Cool.
Arrange cut organic strawberries, bananas, and other fruits and top with cute glitter for a fun surprise.
