Blueberry Dessert Pizza

Hi Everyone,

Happy Friday!  What a long week!  I am soooooooo happy I have Monday off!  Since it’s Friday and Fridays are normally pizza night, I thought I would share with you a pizza dessert that you can have after dinner or even for breakfast!  Yup pizza for breakfast!!!

Blueberry Dessert Pizza

This little pizza is pretty healthy too!  It’s sweet, creamy and the dough has a perfect softness to it and a tiny crunch too!  The pizza is made with reduced fat ricotta cheese, fat free cream cheese and a pinch of stevia.  The creamy ricotta mixture is a combination of cheesecake and a cannoli.  Yummers!  I don’t think you can go wrong with that combination.

I smeared my cheese mixture over the top of a whole wheat pita.  The pita makes a perfect pizza crust.  It’s light, fluffy and when you bake it, it gets slightly crunchy, yet it’s still soft.  The brand I really like for pitas is Orowheat Whole Grain Pitas.   They are only 100 calories for a half!  Now of course I topped my pizza with blueberries!  They are all nice and plump and bake up very nicely.  Just be careful when you cut your pizza because I ran the pizza cutter over a blueberry and it squirted everywhere!!  That’s the blueberry mess you see on the slices.

When using fat free cream cheese, I do want to warn you that it tends to crack a little.  That’s one thing I don’t like about fat free cheeses.  That is why I went with reduced fat ricotta cheese.  To add more sweetness to the pizza I added just a light sprinkle of powdered sugar.  The powdered sugar is perfect on this pizza and doesn’t add a lot of calories!

Blueberry Dessert Pizza

I served this little pizza in a small bowl of vanilla ice cream, however if you eat this for breakfast, you could serve it in a bowl of vanilla yogurt!  That would be fantastic!  I just love simple little treats like this.  Lots of flavor without a lot of work!

So what are your plans for the holiday weekend?  Tomorrow I get my stove, that I got for my birthday and the rest of the weekend will be cooking and catching up on blog posts.  I’m sorry for the delay in commenting back to you lately.  I have been crazy busy trying to make and create recipes.  I seem to miss a weekend and I fall way behind!

Have  a great weekend!

Toodles,

Jennifer
