Strawberry Pizza for a special treat! Succulent sweet strawberries top a tender crust and cream cheese filling.
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg or 2 egg whites or egg substitute equivalent to one egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1-1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package (8 ounces) fat free cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 cups crushed strawberries
In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar for two minutes. Beat in egg and extracts. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for one hour.
On a floured surface, roll dough into a 13-inch circle. Transfer to an ungreased 12-inch pizza pan. Build up edges slightly. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely.
In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Spread over crust. Arrange sliced strawberries on top.
In a saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and crushed berries until blended. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for two minutes or until thickened. Cool slightly. Spoon over strawberries. Refrigerate until serving.
Recipe makes 12 to 16 servings.
