Fruit Pizza

recipe by Liz Stamm

pizza ingredients:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar, unpacked
  • 1/4 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup white chocolate chips or chopped white chocolate

frosting ingredients:

  • 8 ounces – 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

topping ingredients:

  • 1 large mango, diced
  • 3 kiwis, skinned and diced
  • 1 cup strawberries, sliced
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup raspberries
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a 9x13x1.375 inch non-stick baking pan [quarter sheet pan] with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Stir to blend.
  3. In another bowl, whisk the sugars with the butter, egg whites, applesauce, and vanilla until light and fluffy.
  4. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients with a spatula in two additions until the batter is very well blended. If the batter looks more crumbly than smooth, add just a drop of water at a time [ONLY if needed] until it smoothens out. Fold in the white chocolate chips.
  5. Spread the batter onto the baking pan using the back of a measuring cup to smooth evenly.
  6. Bake 14 to 16 minutes until the edges are golden and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Be careful not to overtake or your bars will be dry.
  7. Let bars cool completely on a cooling rack.
  8. While the bars are cooling, prepare the frosting. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until smooth.
  9. When the bars have cooled, cut them into 15 large squares [5 cuts by 3 cuts]. Then, cut each square in half diagonally to create triangles.
  10. Spread the frosting in a thin, even layer of the surface of the bar leaving a small margin around the edges.
  11. Layer the fresh fruit over the frosting.
  12. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
