Strawberry-Banana Brûléed Pizza

Part 4:  Ladies and Gentlemen, a dessert! This is my first dessert post.  I knew it would have to happen eventually.  On top of this being my first dessert post, this was a pizza that wasn’t on the list of pizzas to make.  It was just a happy accident, one might even say serendipitous!

Dave and I had plenty of cream cheese and a few strawberries left.  When he came out of the house with one very ripe banana and an idea was born.  I sent him back inside to get some pecans and brown sugar.

We both agreed this was one of our favorite pizzas of the evening.  We used whole pecans but agreed that whole pecans were too large per bite and that pecan pieces would be best.

Ingredients

  • Pizza Dough
  • Cream cheese; softened
  • 2-3 strawberries; sliced
  • 1 ripe banana; sliced
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar +/-
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar +/-
  • Pecan pieces

Instructions

  1. Roll out the dough ball to the desired thinness.
  2. Using a pastry brush, brush the edges or crust of the dough with olive oil.
  3. Spread the cream cheese on the dough, meeting the olive oiled crust line.
  4. Layer the strawberries over the cream cheese, then the bananas in the open spots.
  5. Sprinkle the pecan pieces over the fruit, then the brown sugar.
  6. Make sure the bananas are coated in the brown sugar, as it will crystalize on them during the baking process.
  7. Dust the powered sugar over the entire pizza.

Outdoor Pizza Oven

  1. Place the pizza in the oven, towards the back, it will cook in about 2 minutes, but watch it, and half way through cooking, move it closer to the front of the oven.
  2. Remove it from the oven, allow it to sit for a minute then slice and serve.

Indoor Oven with Pizza Stone

  1. Or if using a pizza stone indoors: preheat the oven to 400° and allow the stone to preheat for at least 10 minutes.
  2. Assemble the pizza and slide it onto the stone in the oven.
  3. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until it has reached the desired doneness.

    Michelle,

    Your site is very well done. I was able to print your recipe by itself and then add the photo to the back of my page without having extra pages printed just to get what I needed. The photos are super clear and make the items more tempting to try. As a retired printer from the old school, I appreciate the work required to create your site. Congratulations on a job well done. My wife Sandra and I are looking forward to trying the dark chocolate raspberry pie! Thinking of maybe trying your recipe with orange slices in place of raspberries after this one.

      Hi Marshall, Thank you for your comment. I am happy you were able to get the recipe to print nicely for you. Your compliments mean a great deal to me. I must admit, I still feel like I have no clue what I doing most days where the website is concerned. I’m at home in the kitchen but the website portion, I am still quite green. Orange and dark chocolate is another combination made in heaven. Once you try that, please come back and tell me how it turned out. I am most intrigued.
