Mixed berry dessert pizza

This dessert pizza was forced to squeeze shoulder-to-shoulder into an oven full of savoury pizzas with some slightly quixotic vegan toppings (think rosemary-flecked potatoes, banana peppers and kale).  The same crust recipe worked equally well for the savoury and sweet pizzas.  I think this was the dough recipe we used, except with 1 cup of whole wheat and 1 cup of white flour.  Greased cookie sheets worked smartly instead of pizza pans.

I usually avoid using highly processed, non-organic vegan edibles, but Tofutti “Better than Cream Cheese” is an awfully versatile item on which I splurge on very infrequent occasions.  In this particular indulgence, the occasion was a small send-off party before my trip to learn about urban and organic agriculture in Cuba this past February.

Über-simple recipe


  • 2 containers of plain Tofutti “Better than Cream Cheese”
  • 2.5 cups of mixed berries (blueberries and sliced strawberries are especially scrumptious together)
  • 3/4 to 1 cup of sugar

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Gently combine the berries, sugar and Tofutti in a bowl, and do your best to avoid squashing the berries and making them bleed profusely.  Pour the mixture evenly over the pizza crust, leaving a 2-3 inch margin from the edge of the cookie sheet.

Bake for ~30-40 minutes, or until the crust tastes done. Slice, serve, and lick your fingers discreetly.
