This is a healthy and beautiful fruit pizza. The base is made of wheat flour and the icing too is healthy using cottage cheese and yogurt. It has only brown sugar and honey, no white sugar is used. It stands out as a dessert or in the breakfast or as an evening snack. A wonderful way of serving fruits to children as well adults. It vanishes in a jiffy as no one can stop after having one slice of it. Very light and extremely yummy.
Take wheat flour and baking soda in a bowl and mix the two.
Add brown sugar and honey. Mix nicely.
Add cold butter and oil and rub the two till the flour resemble crumbs.
Add milk, little at a time, and without kneading just gather the dough into a big ball.
Grease the baking tray. I used an 8" pie dish for this. You can also take any plate or cake tin. Or make in 2 or 3 smaller trays. In that case, keep the remaining dough in the refrigerator till the first one is getting baked.
No need to refrigerate the dough. Just tear it into small pieces and keep all over the all over the baking tray. This is done as it is not easy to roll therefore it is done like this.
Press each piece forming a pizza base. Do not bother about being neat. Just press all the pieces so that they are joined properly and looks like a base. Just see that the thickness is equal from all the sides.
Using a fork prick all over the base. This is done so that it doesnt puff up while baking.
Bake in the preheated oven at 150 degrees C for 10 to 12 minutes. This crust is neither very crisp nor soft. Appropriate like a cookie. If you want a crisp crust then bake for some more time.
Till the base is getting baked, prepare cream cheese. For this, put cottage cheese and hung curd in the blender and make a smooth paste.
Add vanilla essence and honey.
Add whipped cream, though optional.
Chop Fruits. Prefer pulpy fruits like mango, papaya, kiwi, berries etc.
Once baked, take out the base. After 5 to 7 minutes, run a knife around it and invert it on a wire rack. Let it cool completely.
Once cool, spread cream cheese.
Arrange with chopped fruits.
Serve with love or cover with cling film and keep in the refrigerator.
You may brush glaze over the fruits.You require fruit glaze if you are using fruits like apple, pears, banana etc. However, I didnt use it.
To make the glaze, take 2 to 3 tablespoon of any fruit juice. Add 1 teaspoon cornflour in it and heat it. When cool, brush fruits with this.
If you are using salted butter then no need to add salt. Otherwise, add a pinch of salt. I used Amul butter so didn’t add salt.Do not knead the dough, just gather it into a ball. Kneading will develop gluten which will make the base chewy.Add milk little at a time. The quantity of milk used may vary depending upon the flour.After gathering the dough you can straight away bake it. However, if not possible then wrap it in cling film and keep in the refrigerator.If you want the base to be crispy then bake it for 3 to 4 minutes more.Whether cottage cheese or hung curd, ensure there is no water in it. Otherwise, cream cheese will be liquidy.
