How do Caramel Apple and Plum Mini Pizza sound to you?

In case you to like us love pizzas then read on.
Another bright Monday, another delicious recipe! This time in Foodie Monday BlogHop we are creating Pizzas, yes it is #215 Pizza Mania suggested by Preethi Prasad. Preethi Blogs at Preethi’s Cuisine. Her simple yet delicious recipes are a treat to your tastebuds. Why don’t you check out her Cilantro Chutney Powder?
Coming to pizzas, I wanted to avoid the cheese in a pizza as kiddo does not like cheese. It seems like a waste to make pizzas just for the two of us.
Why not try a Dessert Pizza, a Fruit Dessert Pizza?
Hence, I started looking out for dessert pizzas and zeroed down to this Fruit Pizza.
Still, my apprehensions were not fully laid to rest as,
- Pizza with fruits, apples pizza, plum pizza? New concepts at home, not sure how they will be accepted.
- Since I was using 2 other sweeteners Nutella and homemade salted caramel sauce along with the sweet cookies the acceptance levels seemed to be zooming down further.
The solution was I reduced the sugar in the cookies and so used 1/4 cup of the regular sugar. The rest I followed the recipe.
There are times we worry unnecessarily, this was one of them.
Once I made these yummy Caramel Apple and Plum Mini Pizza and drizzled them with homemade salted caramel sauce and goat cheese Hubby and Kiddo came back for more.
At first, kiddo wrinkled her nose at the cheese then just to please me she ate one sliver that was on the dish. She loved it and kept on eating some from the grater.
Once I made the cookies making the fruit pizza was easy. In fact, I suggest at a party let your guest put them together to their tastes.
Let us see how to make Caramel Apple and Plum Mini Pizza!
Ingredients to make the Caramel Apple and Plum Mini Pizza are cookies, apple slices, plum slices, Nutella, homemade salted caramel sauce, goat cheese. You can use nuts like walnuts, pecans too.
I love the taste of goat cheese so used that, you can use cream cheese or any other cheese you wish.
For the cookies, you can make regular cookies or make a big one. Or just buy some!
I made the cookies from Delish. The cookies were soft and chewy because of the brown sugar just like they promised.
The number of cookies will depend on the size of your cookies. I got some 6 big ones and 9 smaller ones.
To make Caramel Apple and Plum Mini Pizza you will need cookies first
These are the ingredients for the cookies.
Beat the butter and sugar together till light and fluffy. Please use the handheld beater or the stand mixer. (Note to self there is no point in being lazy and beating by hand as your hand pains. We don’t want tennis elbows now). You can see the half of sugar I left out.
Add the eggs and vanilla essence.
Gradually add the flour and mix the dough.
Make a roll and stored in the fridge (sorry no pictures). Shape and bake.
When ready to make you your Caramel Apple and Plum Mini Pizza spread the Nutella on the cookie.
Place the apple and plum slices grate the cheese on top.
Drizzle the salted caramel sauce on top. Then click, click, click before the hoards decent on the delicious Fruit Pizza.
