Fruit Pizzas with Whole Wheat Cinnamon Crust

Personal Pan Fruit Pizzas with Whole Wheat Cinnamon Sugared Crust

[crust adapted from food.com]

makes 4 pizzas 

1 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

3 tablespoons brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/3 cup milk

2 tablespoons olive oil

3/4 cup whipped cream cheese

1 tablespoon brown sugar

assorted fruit: blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, peaches, kiwi, bananas, etc.

2 tablespoons sugar + 2 teaspoons cinnamon for cinnamon sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a bowl, mix flour, baking powder, 3 tablespoons brown sugar, salt, cinnamon and stir. Make a well in the middle and add olive oil and milk, mixing with a spoon until a ball forms. Using your hands, combine it until it comes together and shape it into a ball. Separate it into 4 equal sections (I actually used a kitchen scale and portioned it into 2.5 ounce balls of dough), then using a rolling pin or even your hands, flatten and shape it into a small circle. Mine were 3 1/2 – 4 inches in diameter. Rub each side with cinnamon sugar and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, remove from oven and let cool completely.

While crusts are cooling, mix cream cheese and brown sugar until combined and creamy. Chop fruit of your choice. Once crusts have cooled completely, spread each with a few tablespoons of cream cheese and top with fruit. I like the idea of having a dessert pizza “bar” and allowing everyone to make their own.

Note: this crust results in a more biscuit-like crust. The pizzas can be made ahead of time, however the crust will soften a lot in the fridge. It still tastes delicious and we ate one the next day.
