They look like pizzas, but they’re topped with sweet slices of fruit – a kid-pleasing combination if there ever was one. Use easy-to-peel clementines to make these creamsicle-flavored pizza bites, or top with fresh, seasonal fruit like berries.
|2 cups unbleached all purpose flour||4 oz cream cheese, softened|
|1 tsp granulated sugar||1/4 cup powdered sugar|
|2 Tbs vegetable oil||6 clementines + the juice of 1 clementine, divided|
|1/2 cup water|
Preheat the oven to 500F and preheat a pizza stone in the oven if you have one.
Whisk the flour and sugar together, then drizzle the 2 tablespoons oil and 1/2 cup water into the flour and stir until a soft, shaggy dough forms.
Turn the dough out onto a well-floured surface. For large pizzas that can be cut into wedges, divide the dough in half and roll each into a 10-inch round approximately 1/4 inch thick.
For individual pizzas, divide the dough into 24 balls and roll or shape each ball into a 3-inch round approximately 1/4 inch thick.
Place as many dough rounds as possible on the pizza stone and cook for about 5 minutes, until puffy and golden brown in spots. If you don’t have a pizza stone, transfer the dough rounds to two large baking sheets for cooking.
Transfer the cooked pizza rounds to a wire rack to cool.
Whisk the softened cream cheese with the powdered sugar and juice of 1 clementine to make the pizza sauce.
Peel the 6 remaining clementines and slice each horizontally into 5-6 slices about 1/4-inch thick. Use the widest middle slices and save the smaller ends for another snack.
Assemble the pizzas by spooning about 1 teaspoon sauce onto each cooled crust, then topping with a clementine slice.
Crusts and sauce can be prepared and stored separately overnight – crust in an airtight container, sauce in the refrigerator – before assembling and serving.
