1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
2 1/2 cups
1/2 (2 ounce) package
strawberry Danish dessert mix (e.g. Junket)
Made it for 4th of July and everyone liked it. I couldn't find the danish mix, instead I used the strawberry glazed.
Was disappointed in this. The crust was too wet and runny. Unable to pat it down because of this. I believe it needs more flour.
This is my favorite dessert pizza recipe of at least six I've tried, the crust is delicious, like a cookie, so it holds the juices better and doesn' get soggy. The junket is a much lighter glaze than "strawberry glaze" which is too sweet and goopy. Outstanding!
This is VERY GOOD!!!!!! I didn't have a pizza dish, so I doubled the recipe and made it in a deep cookie sheet. My husband LOVED it and he's picky about desserts!!!! Thanks, Douglas!!!!
I've made variations of this in the past and always felt they were a little too uniformly sweet. So with this one, I omitted the sugar from the crust and only put in 1/4 cup powdered sugar with the cream cheese. This helped bring out the individual flavors of the different layers - the strawberries and glaze give it enough sweetness! Also brings down the calorie count.
Also, for the glaze, I couldn't find Danish Dessert so I made my own glaze of 1 c. white sugar, 1 c. water and 2 tbs corn starch - bring to boil so it thickens, then remove from heat and add in 3 tbs. strawberry Jell-O. I didn't use all of it on the pizza either - just drizzled on as much as I wanted.
This is my favorite dessert pizza recipe! The crust is delicious, light, flakey, chewy ... almost like a cookie. It holds the juices well and doesn' get soggy. The junket is awesome (much lighter than other glaze recipes and not as sweet). An amazing dessert .... especially for summer!
I have tried many versions of fruit pizza, this is by FAR my fave! The cookie is delicious, and its harder so it doesn't get soggy. The junket is a million times better than glaze, not so thick and gaggy. Everybody I've made this for loves it!
I made this for a gathering and it was a hit. Cools you down after a hot and spicy dinner. I didn't have any junket so I used dessert pudding mix and cut down the milk by about half. Quick and easy for an "oh my gosh,I forgot about the potluck dinner" moment.
