I love when you walk into a party and your social media sparks interest before you even get there! I made this little beauty for the 4th of July for my Paulin family. An amazing customer at the market had nonchalantly suggested I make a fruit pizza if I had extra crust. She had no clue the wheels she had sparked to begin turning…..rapidly. What a magnificent idea!! Plus I had enough pizza crust for me to make this and two others for my boyfriend and I to create His and Hers pizzas, SUCCESS!
I had scored some beautiful beautiful blueberries at the Farmer’s Market. All I needed was to discover some beautiful strawberries for a pop of color and a complete patriotic ode. I was still in the height of my goat cheese filling kick so I decided to make a lovely ‘sauce’ layer with it. Just a quick round in the food processor, a little strawberry slicing, and a quick but pretty fruit layout and I had myself a gorgeous little fruit pizza. Snap a quick pic. Post to Insta. Upload to Facebook. Show-up with the excitement of fruit pizza palpable in the air. I saw this. I want this. Cut it. When are you cutting it? Let’s cut it……now. Nom, nom the sound of happy individuals chewing. A general (maybe dramatized) reaction to my appearance.
I felt solidified in my food artist status. For this is my new venture and idea rolling around in my head. Every time I go into Java lately I’m there working on my business stuff, talking up food. This radiant being Kristen tells me the other day that I am like a food artist, when she dropped in on me discussing the granola apple pie that I was getting ready to throw down. “You talk about recipes and creations that don’t seem possible.” What a cool way to be perceived, I will take it 100%! It almost makes me sound like a food magician. Like the Hermione Granger of gluten-free food. The complete dork in me would ravel in the food sorceress title. Wielding my whisk like a wand. I can dig it.
So here we go! Here is the recipe. Note that I am going to link to another pizza crust that is delicious, I do not post recipes that I sell at the market (what need is there for me then?).
- 1 Paleo Pizza Crust (<———— here is a freaking awesome recipe, so click the link) Note: I would suggest subbing cinnamon for the garlic and coconut oil for olive oil. Maybe add just a tsp of honey too)
- 8 oz. Goat Cheese
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 pint of local, farm-fresh blueberries
- 1 pint of strawberries
Let’s Make it Happen: Make the crust. Allow to cool thoroughly. Whip up the filing in a food processor of a mixer. Spread evenly over the top of the pizza. Slice strawberries. Now you can take creative license here to create your own design or try to emulate mine. I opted for a strawberry border with an inner blueberry stripe and some more strawberries spiraled in the center. Slice like a regular pizza and gobble it up!
