Here is another recipe provided by one of our readers that originally came from Portland’s Palate cookbook! This week both individual and family shares had strawberries in them, as well as the strawberries that were for sale at pick up. With all those strawberries this is a perfect recipe.
Oven at 325 degrees
Bake: 15 Minutes
Yield: 10 Servings
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 cup fresh strawberries, mashed
4 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
8-10 strawberries, sliced
In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar and butter. Form a ball with hands and press into a 14-inch ungreased pizza pan.
Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes – cool.
In a medium bow, combine cream cheese, vanilla, sugar and lemon juice. Spread on cooled crust.
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine strawberries, sugar and cornstarch. Simmer until thick and glossy. Cool. Spread on top of cheese filling.
Cut fresh strawberries crosswise to make rounds that resemble pepperoni; place on pizza and serve.
