Mi Huerta Market: Easter Egg Fruit Pizza
What does Easter, fruit and pizza all have in common? Well they can be put together and made into a yummy dessert of course! I know what you’re thinking, sounds gross! But, pizza isn’t necessarily made for just the salt lovers, it can easily be made into something just as sweet. Not to mention this dessert is quite tasty!
Let’s begin with a little history and I promise it’s not boring. What does Easter mean? For one thing, it’s extremely important and celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Easter is a foundation of the Christian faith. The resurrection means Jesus as the powerful Son of God and is cited as proof that God will judge the world in righteousness. For followers of Christ, this is a huge movement and something we hold dear and know to be very sacred.
Now, we can add onto Easter with what else it’s all about, the Easter Bunny! Since ancient times, rabbits have been associated with spring! It is even believed that the Anglo-Saxon Goddess of Spring, Eostre, had a rabbit as her companion. It symbolized fertility and rebirth and still does today. This animal was revolutionized into something so powerful and great that it has carried through to todays generations and is still iconic. We call it, the Easter Bunny and the eggs symbolize none other than, new life!
While both backgrounds aren’t related to each other, they make up the solid foundation behind what makes Easter, EASTER! So, with that mentioned we can share how much knowledge we know about the meaning behind it and why it’s so special.
Now for the main event! Our delicious Easter Egg Pizza!
Easter Egg Fruit Pizza Recipe
A festive Easter egg sugar cookie fruit “pizza” with strawberry cream cheese frosting. You can make it super simple with a sugar cookie mix or make it from scratch.
1 pouch (1lb 1.5oz) sugar cookie mix
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
4 oz (1/2 brick) cream cheese, softened
1 Tablespoon powdered sugar
¼ teaspoon Mi Huerta Vanilla
½ cup strawberries, chopped
approx. 3 cups fruit cut into pieces (Try strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and grease a 13″ pizza pan and set aside.
In a medium bowl, add the cookie mix, melted butter, and egg and mix with a spoon until a soft dough forms.
Press the dough evenly onto the pan.
Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Let it cool completely, about 45 minutes. Cut into an egg shape (I just used a butter knife).
In a food processor or blender, add the softened cream cheese, ½ cup chopped strawberries, powdered sugar, and Mi Huerta vanilla and pulse until fully combined and smooth.
Spread the cream cheese mixture onto the cooled cookie.
Decorate with the cut up fruit.
Slice with a pizza cutter & serve.
