Strawberry Pizza is a refreshing delightful dessert to serve this summer for a delicious treat!

2 Tbsp. strawberry preserves

1/4 cup sugar

1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

2 lbs. strawberries, hulled and halved

 

1 lb. pizza dough, quartered

2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted and cooled

1 Tbsp. granulated sugar

3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

4 oz. strawberries, hulled

1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1/2 tsp. fresh lemon juice

1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1/8 tsp. kosher salt

3/4 cup heavy cream, whipped to soft peaks

caramel sauce for serving

In a large bowl, microwave preserves in 10 second increments until runny. Stir in sugar and lemon juice. Add  2 lbs. strawberries and toss to coat.

Let sit, tossing occasionally, until berries release their juices, at least 30 minutes or up to 4 hours.

Position racks in the center and bottom of the oven and heat the oven to 425 degrees. Line 2 baking sheet with parchment paper. Shape each quarter of dough into a 7 inch round. Place 2 rounds on each prepared pan. Brush tops with melted butter. Mix sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and sprinkle over the top.

Bake, rotating the pans halfway through, until bottoms are brown and crisp and dough is cooked through, about 8-10 minutes. Let cool completely on pans.

Meanwhile, pulse 4 oz. strawberries in a food processor until smooth. Add cream cheese, powdered sugar, lemon juice, vanilla and salt. Pulse until smooth. If mixture is runny, refrigerate until firm enough to spread.

Divide strawberry cream cheese mixture among the cooled crusts. Top with strawberry preserve mixture and whipped cream. Serve immediately, drizzled with caramel sauce if desired.
