Strawberry Pizza

Another great recipe from my fabulous aunt! It is definitely the time of year to start really cooking and baking with strawberries! This sounds so fresh and delicious to me, plus really simple to put together!

1. Prepare Strawberries
Wash, hull, and slice 2 baskets of Strawberries.
Cover with ½ c. sugar and ¼ c. water. Let stand for 2 or 3 hours.

2. Crust
1 c. Flour
½ c. Butter (soft)
3 T powdered Sugar

Mix all ingredients with mixer. Press into greased pizza pan with hand.

Crust will be about ¼ inch thick. Flute edges. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Crust will NOT be brown, but will be firm.

3. Cream Filling
2 Eggs
1 8oz. package Cream Cheese
½ c. Sugar
1 T Lemon Juice

Cream the cream cheese and sugar together until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time. Beat in lemon juice. Pour cream mixture into hot crust – spread evenly.

Bake at 350 10-12 minutes more until firm. Cool.

4. Glaze
1 c. Juice from drained strawberries
¼ c. Sugar
1 T Lemon Juice
2 T Corn Starch

Drain and reserve juice from Strawberries.

Mix cornstarch and sugar together in pan. Pour juice over sugar mixture.

Stir until melted and then add lemon juice. Bring to a boil and cook until cornstarch is clear and mixture has thickened.

Cool. When cold enough, pour over strawberries and gently fold to glaze. Pour strawberries and glaze evenly over cooled pizza. Chill well.

Decorate with whipped cream.
