Strawberry Pizza

This is a great way to use up fresh strawberries. I like to drizzle chocolate syrup over the top when I serve it.

6 T. butter or margarine
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. almond
1 1/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

Cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs and extracts. Combine dry ingredients. Add to dry mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Roll out onto a 12 inch pizza pan. Build up edges slightly. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool


1 pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. powdered sugar
2 c. sliced fresh strawberries
1 c. sugar
1/4 c. cornstarch
2 c. crushed strawberries

Beat cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Spread over crust. Arrange sliced strawberries around on top. In a saucepan, bring the sugar, cornstarch and crushed strawberries to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes until thickened. Cool slightly and spoon over the sliced strawberries. Refrigerate until set.
