Review: Strawberry Pizza - karyn - 04-04-2010

I made the Oxnard Strawberry Pizza from #80. I think it's definitely a keeper. It's lots of fun and very tasty. The shortbread came together easily and was no problem to shape into an 11-inch circle, and the toppings were also very good.

The only problem I had was that I didn't have any strawberry preserves, but I did have extra strawberries, so I faked it by simmering some strawberries with sugar, lemon, and a pinch of salt. That worked fine. Also, I assembled the pizza several hours before we ate it and some of the juices ran. Next time, I'll spread the sweetened marscapone early, but wait until just before I serve to arrange the strawberries.

The only other downside to this recipe is that for a simple dessert there were a lot of dishes. However, the good flavor and fun presentation made it worth it. Adding some blueberries to the mix and arranging them in a design would make a great dessert for Memorial Day or the 4th of July.

We're taking a pizza dinner out of town next weekend to friends (poor thing, she's still working...), and I just may take this with us. Thanks for reviewing it - sounds good and fun.

Thanks for the review, Karyn. Been wanting to make that one myself. Sounds delish!

I'm planning to make this for my monthly luncheon. Looking forward to it!

Made this for a luncheon on Tuesdsay. Followed the recipe excatly using Triple Sec instead of orange juice. I drew an 11" circle on the back of the parchment sheet so I could more easily get the right size. I think I rushed transferring the baked cookie crust to the rack and broke it . So I ended up cutting the pie into squares, which turned out to be good. One-eighth of it is too big of a piece for dessert - besides it's nearly 700 calories! I think I got about 16 pieces. Had a few left overs and they don't look so good after sitting in the fridge overnight. Doesn't affect the taste, just presenation. I was asked for the recipe - always a good sign.

good to know - will have to wait a little while to make this, right now I'm concentrating on a Raspberry White Chocolate pizza...
