Strawberry-Mascarpone Dessert Pizza
cup packed brown sugar
cup whipping cream
ounces mascarpone cheese or one 8-ounce tub cream cheese
cup sifted powdered sugar
teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
cups sliced strawberries
Chocolate curls or grated chocolate (optional)
- For crust, in a medium mixing bowl combine flour and brown sugar. Cut in margarine or butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press firmly into an 11- to 13-inch pizza pan. Bake in a 400 degree F oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until light brown. Cool completely.
- Just before serving, in a medium mixing bowl beat whipping cream with an electric mixer on low speed just until soft peaks form. Add mascarpone cheese or cream cheese, powdered sugar, and lemon peel; beat until fluffy (mixture will thicken as it is beaten).
- Spread cheese mixture atop cooled crust. Top with strawberries. Garnish with chocolate curls or grated chocolate, if desired. Serve immediately. Makes 12 servings.
