Easy & Healthy Dessert Pizza
Dessert and pizza. Two of my favorite things. Two things that I don’t always indulge in because….well, someone discovered that eating chocolate and/or pizza for three meals a day was a bad thing. Who knew?! My kiddos have inherited my sweet tooth and that means I try really hard to satisfy all our cravings in a healthy way. Healthy food can be delicious. Healthy options can be easy.
And that’s exactly what this Recipe for Dessert Pizza is…Easy. Healthy. Delicious. Dessert.
I was at Publix the other day and I saw DESSERT HUMMUS. I may be slow to this discovery, but I am now a HUGE fan! I also found Wish Farms Strawberries on sale and I decided a dessert pizza was in order. My family and I went to a Publix Aprons Cooking Class over the holidays and made a dessert pizza with fruit, and while it was absolutely amazing, the kids added about 55 million chocolate chips and the base was a sugar cookie 😉 So, I wanted to create that deliciousness, without all the guilt. And I succeeded.
Strawberries are juicy and sweet, making them a perfect dessert pizza topping. Strawberries also have many health benefits, making them a healthy dessert pizza topping 😉 Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C, manganese and vitamin B9. Strawberries are also rich in antioxidants. That’s just a few of the reasons I use them in many of my smoothies recipes and add them to our favorite salmon salad.
I grabbed a naan for the dessert pizza crust, the dessert hummus, my beautiful berries, and Crispy Green Freeze Dried bananas for a little crunch. Freeze dried fruits have light and crispy texture, and Crispy Green adds no artificial flavors, preservatives, and they definitely don’t add any sugar. Why would you need sugar when fruit is naturally sweet on it’s own?! You may wonder if you lose any nutrients when eating freeze dried fruit, don’t worry, you don’t really! If any vitamins are lost in the freeze drying process, it’s very minimal, so you can feel good about eating freeze-dried fruit and adding it your homemade dessert pizza. You are still getting a healthy dose of potassium when you eat bananas, and they also give you a little boost of energy. Score!
Keep in mind that this is just one dessert pizza idea, feel free to add on other fresh and freeze dried fruits too.
The result of this dessert pizza recipe was nothing less than AH-MAZING.
