Fruited Cheese Pizza

Fruited Cheese Pizza created by Ambervim

I know I got this recipe from either Gourmet or Bon Appetit maybe 15-20 years or so ago. It has become a summer fixture in my home. Always impressive and delicious. The fruit in the ingredients list is what the recipe listed, but I have happily subbed all kinds of fresh (and tinned) fruit over the years.

ingredients

directions

  • For crust: Sprinkle yeast and pinch of sugar into milk in small bowl; stir to dissolve.
  • Let stand until foamy and proofed, about 10 minutes.
  • Butter large bowl.
  • Combine 2 ½ cups flour, ¼ cup sugar and salt in another large bowl.
  • Make well in center.
  • Add yeast mixture, butter and eggs to well and blend until smooth.
  • Gradually draw flour from inner edge of well into center until all flour is incorporated.
  • Turn out onto work surface, which you have floured with some of the remaining ½ cup flour.
  • Knead in whatever flour is left, then continue kneading until dough is smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.
  • Add dough to prepared bowl, turning to coat surface of dough with butter.
  • Let rise in warm, draft-free area until doubled in volume, about 1 ¾ hours.
  • Butter a 16 inch pizza pan.
  • Punch dough down.
  • Roll out to circle ¼ to 1/8 inch thick.
  • Fit into pan, pressing onto sides.
  • Let dough rise in warm area until puffy, about 20 minutes.
  • Position rack in lower third of oven and preheat to 350F.
  • For topping: Beat cheese, ½ cup sugar, yolks, flour, sour cream, peel, vanilla, salt and spices until smooth.
  • Spoon into unbaked shell, spreading evenly.
  • Sprinkle with 2 tblsps of sugar.
  • Bake until crust is browned and filling is set, about 35 minutes.
  • Cool completely in pan.
  • Decorate with fruit.
  • Use your imagination to make an attractive pattern of contrasting colours.
  • Brush generously with melted jam (you may not need whole amount – not to worry, jam will rethicken as it cools and is great on buttered toast!).
  • Serve within 5 hours.
