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.

How To Make The BEST Strawberry Pizza - on ASpicyPerspective.com #strawberry #summer

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.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened (12 tablespoons)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 12 ounces chevre goat cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh strawberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 10x15 inch rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. 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.

  3. Dump the cookie dough out onto the prepared baking sheet. Use your hands to press the dough out evenly from corner to corner. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden.
  4. Meanwhile, mix the softened goat cheese and honey together until smooth. Once the cookie base comes out of the oven, allow it to cool for 5 minutes, then spread the goat cheese evenly over the base while it's still a little warm.
  5. 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.

    Would love to try this. For a gluten free diet, can you substitute a gluten free baking mix? Or a cookie mix?

  14. Dianeposted July 1, 2015 at 9:17 am Reply

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

  15. Krisposted July 3, 2015 at 9:58 am Reply

    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!

      Hi Kris! Yes, you want the crust to be thin. How did yours turn out??

    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!!!

    • Sommerposted July 10, 2016 at 5:49 pm Reply

      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!

    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.
