Looking for something new for dessert at this weekends BBQ?  Why not try this delicious fruit pizza!!  It is full of fruits and you can add even more if you like!  The kids can get involved and help layer on the toppings!!

Cinnamon-sugar pizza crust

1 cup + 3/4 cup white bread flour, divided
3/4 tsp kosher salt
2 tbsp sugar
1.5 tsp cinnamon
2 & 1/4 tsp pizza yeast (no proofing required)
3 tbsp oil
2/3 cup very warm water
more flour for kneading dough
Avocado-Lime Whip
4 avocados
Fresh lime juice from half a lime (approx 1 tsp)
1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste or 1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup agave nectar
2-3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1-2 tbsp coconut milk
12 tbsp icing sugar (confectioner’s)

Fruit
Fruit salsa: Chop up a mixture of strawberries, mandarin oranges, mango, kiwi, and raspberries. Add in blueberries too. You will want about 2-3 cups of the salsa.

Fruit layer: Mandarin, strawberries (sliced), blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, kiwi (sliced), mango (sliced), and whatever else your little heart desires! Peach would be good too.

Preparation:
For crust
1. Preheat oven to 500F. In a large mixing bowl, mix together 1 cup flour, plus the salt, sugar, cinnamon, yeast. Stir well. Now quickly add 2/3 cup very warm water along with 3 tbsp oil. Stir well. It will be very sticky but not to worry.
2. Now add in 3/4 cup- 1 cup more flour, gradually, as you stir. Once the flour is in, grab the dough and place on floured surface.
3. Knead the dough for 5 minutes, adding flour as it gets tacky. After 5 mins the dough should be smooth and not tacky. Form into a ball and place in a large oiled bowl. Cover the ball with a bit of oil so it doesnt dry out. Now cover the bowl and let it rise for 1.5 hours. You can punch out the air halfway through.
4. After rising time, punch air out and spread into an oiled pizza pan or you can place it directly onto a preheated pizza stone. Sprinkle with lots of sugar and bake at 500F for 14-15 mins. until golden. Cooking time may vary so watch carefully.

For avocado whip
In a food processor, add in the avocado, lime juice, and agave. Process until smooth. Now add in the vanilla, melted coconut oil, and coconut milk. As the last step, add in the icing sugar very gradually until the consistency you want is achieved. Cool in fridge for about 30 minutes before using. Spread over the base of cooled & cooked pizza crust.

For Fruit
After you have spread on the avocado-lime whip, it is time to layer on the fruit. I started with an outer layer of fruit salsa, followed by a layer of sliced fruit. After those two layers, I did a very small layer of sprinkled coconut, followed by a layer of raspberries, and then finally fruit salsa.
