Here is a fresh, healthy and delicious recipe for fruit pizza! Sweetened up ricotta cheese with just a tiny bit of sugar, lots of cinnamon and fresh squeezed Clementine juice makes up the sauce. Anise seeds and sweet basil went into the pizza dough. For the toppings I loaded on apple slices, assorted berries and coconut flakes. A piece of art! This just melted in my mouth in an array of fragrant, sweet spiciness and bursts of fresh, juicy fruit.
This is such a fun and healthy recipe to make with your kids. You can bake off personal size crusts and let them make their own. Or how about for the Superbowl? A dessert pizza bar with pre-baked mini crusts and toppings all prepped. I’m sending this off to The Recipe Girl’s Ultimate Super Bowl Party Recipe Smack Down. The deadline is midnight tonight, head on over, there’s still time to get an entry in to win a 250$ Sam’s Club Gift Card.
