Take your taste buds to the tropics from the comfort of your own home. This is a recipe my husband created at my request. Hope you enjoy this tropical dessert pizza!
Servings: 4-6Prep Time: 5-10 minutes Cook Time: 25-30 minutes
1 can refrigerated pizza dough (or equivalent amount homemade dough)
1 (6oz) tub pineapple cream cheese
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 bananas, chopped
1 small can pineapple tidbits, drained (Reserve liquid.)
1/3 cup coconut flakes
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped Macadamia nuts
Preheat oven to temperature indicated on pizza dough package baking instructions (usually 400 degrees). Spray a 10×14 cookie sheet with cooking spray. Carefully stretch the dough to the length and width of the cookie sheet. (We sometimes use a small rolling pin for this, although Mark usually uses his hands.)
Bake the dough until lightly golden brown, approximately 10-15 minutes. Keep an eye on it. We don’t want it to get overdone. (As this is a dessert pizza, we are baking the crust more thoroughly.)
Remove pizza from the oven and let cool slightly. Meanwhile, combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Mix until smooth and creamy. Apply to pizza dough leaving a 1/2 inch border for your crust. Evenly sprinkle the following toppings (in order) on the pizza: bananas, pineapple tidbits, coconut flakes, and Macadamia nuts.
Combine brown sugar with 1 1/2 Tablespoons of reserved pineapple juice. With a spoon, drizzle the brown sugar mixture over the top of the pizza.
Place pizza back in the oven and bake an additional 5-7 minutes. Remove and enjoy!
