Strawberry Pizza

This is the Best Strawberry Pizza Recipe out there! Generally, I don’t go throwing around the words “the best” unless am sure I’m right.

I’m sure, friends… I’m really, truly sure about this one.

So simple, yet sooooooo delightful.

Fresh blushing strawberries, honey-sweetened goat cheese, and the best sugar cookie base you’ll ever taste.

The Best Strawberry Pizza is a recipe I’ll stand behind as a treat you’re going to share with friends again and again. In fact, I’d bet money if you serve it this summer, your friends will think you’re a genius and ask for the recipe.

You don’t have to tell them you found it here. Just nod and smile.

What Makes It The Best Dessert Pizza

There are three things that make The Best Strawberry Pizza so darn good…

  1. You have to make it in the summertime when strawberries are ripe and in season.
  2. You have to use soft fresh goat cheese, not cream cheese or some other inferior substitute. (No offense to cream cheese, but is there really any comparison?)
  3. You have to make this particular sugar cookie base. If you try to fudge it and buy a pre-made sugar cookie log, it will no longer be the best. *wink*

Winking aside, I’m serious about number three. We’re using my tried-and-true very best sugar cookie dough that kicks all other sugar cookies to the curb. It’s light and tender, with the perfect balance of vanilla, salt, and buttery essence.

This sugar cookie base is the ideal platform for unadulterated toppings like fresh summer berries, honey, and chevre.

How To Make Strawberry Pizza

Preheat the oven. Line a 10×15-inch rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Using an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Then scrape the bowl and add the egg and vanilla. Beat again to combine. Then with the mixer running, slowly add the flour, baking powder, and salt. Scrape the bowl and beat again until smooth.

Dump the cookie dough out onto the prepared baking sheet. Use your hands to press the dough out evenly from corner to corner. Bake until golden.
 
(If you really don’t want to  make the dough from scratch, go ahead and use the storebought kind, just know, that you’re missing out on the best of the best).

Goat Cheese and Honey 

Meanwhile, mix the softened goat cheese and honey together until smooth. This combination is heavenly and a little fancy.

And if you don’t have goat cheese on hand, I guess you could use cream cheese, just remember it won’t be as good!

Sugar Cookie Base and Spread

Once the cookie base comes out of the oven, allow it to cool for 5 minutes, then spread the goat cheese mixture evenly over the base while it’s still a little warm.

This allows for easier spreading. Now for the strawberries!

Topped with Strawberries

Hull the strawberries and slice into thin pieces. Start at one end and line the strawberry slices across the pizza, overlapping each row for complete coverage. Cut and serve immediately, or cover and chill until ready to serve.

This recipe can last for a couple of days in the refrigerator, but it usually doesn’t last that long in my family. It’s that good.

Make this Strawberry Pizza Recipe in Advance

The goat cheese and honey mixture can also be mixed ahead of time and stored in the fridge for up to a week.

  16. strawberry pizza was luscious!  Guests loved it!

  17. Made it for a family dinner. Big Hit, thank. Perfect crust/cookie. I used Agave instead if honey, because my honey had crystallized, and I did not want to double boiler it. I doubled the cookie recipe so we can make cookies later this week. I kept my strawberries a bit inside the edge of my cheese spread and the crust did not get soggy in the fridge as it rested till dinner was finished. Everyone loves it, I will definitely make it again.

  19. Hi! Looks amazing, just wondering how well it stores tho? I’m making a dessert for my nieces wedding, if I made it earlier in the morning, chilled it, cut it into small bars and sent it to the venue, would they be too soft or soggy by that evening? She wants easy finger food/bar style desserts. These just look too good!!!

    • Hi Holley! I think they would be fine chilled, if made on the same day. I’ve made them and kept them up to three days, but the berries do loose their luster over time. Good Luck!

  27. Hi there, I found this recipe while I was looking for a quick and easy dessert to make for my family this past weekend. My family loved it. It was fun to make and really delicious. I added a bit of fresh mint here and there and it was good. Thanks. 

  28. Looks gorgeous! I’m in the process of making this and used a 9×13 sheet pan instead of 10×15 since there did not seem to be enough dough once I started spreading in the larger size pan. Are you certain you used a 10×15? Thank you for the wonderful recipe!

  29. I would love to try this! For gluten free, would you suggest a GF baking mix or a sugar cooki mix?
