I have a gigantic sweet tooth. But as a registered dietitian, I aim to make dessert on the healthy side. So I started playing around in the kitchen to whip up a dessert pizza that also delivers a dose of nutrition.
I decided to make my fruit pizza recipe with cream cheese using a Flatout Artisan Thin Pizza Crust.
The bread is now one of three varieties of Flatout flatbreads endorsed by Weight Watchers for between 2 and 4 SmartPoints values. The others are Flatout Light flatbreads and Flatout ProteinUp CarbDown flatbreads.
Each Flatout pizza crust is just 130 calories and 4 SmartPoints values—and delivers 12 percent of the daily value for satiating protein.
How to Make Fruit Flatbread
How to make fruit pizza? To make the dessert flatbread, I first toasted the pizza crust in the oven to give it a nice golden brown crisp. I let the crust cool completely. I didn't use parchment paper or a pizza pan but if you want to, go for it!
Then I whipped up a pizza base with light whipped cream cheese (you don't need to make this overly sweet by using a sugar cookie crust or cream cheese frosting), flavored with orange zest and just a little bit of honey.
If you want the cream cheese topping a little sweeter, you could also mix in a drop or two of vanilla extract.
And then to finish off the healthy fruit pizza crust recipe, I piled on the toppings: lots of fresh fruit (which are freebies on the Weight Watchers plan)!
And there you have it: a nutritious dessert. Each piece of this Flatout Fruit Pizza is only 100 calories or 4 SmartPoints values. In addition to being yummy, the easy fruit pizza also provides protein, which helps keep hunger at bay.
