A sweet and spicy take on a fruit pizza!
Pizza is one of those meals that just about everyone likes and is really easy to make at home. Pizza looks great, tastes even better and just about always hits the spot. As a bonus, it’s one of those meals that you can make with kids and get them involved in the kitchen.
Rolling the dough, picking out their toppings and sauces and also throwing on the cheese can get kids excited and enthused about a meal. We love to make small individual sized pizzas for the kids. And we let them make their own, which tends to get them to actually eat their dinner!
Of course using peaches and raspberry on this pizza got our boys attention and we had no problem getting them to eat this tasty pie!

For this pizza we decided to go with some nontraditional toppings. Of course they had to work well together to make a pie that hits the sweet and savory taste buds at the same time. We started out by brushing the dough with a simple sauce made of olive oil, garlic and salt and pepper to form the base and add a rich savory base.
Roasted onion gives a sweet sharp bite while fresh basil and chopped green onions add a fresh aromatic burst to the pie. Tart raspberries and sweet caramelized peaches add a fresh sweetness that really goes nicely with the garlic and fresh herbs.
Chopped strips of salt cured ham brings a nice saltiness that enhances the sweet and savory flavors and helps to balance out the sweetness of the peaches. Golden toasted colby jack and cheddar cheese and a sprinkle of creamy mozzarella top this pie off with a delicious cheesy layer.
To further add a bit more pop to the adult’s pizza, we added a drizzle of Crazy Gringa’s Raspberry Cayenne pepper hot sauce. Locally made in Omaha by our friends at The Crazy Gringa, the raspberry cayenne hot sauce really added a fantastic splash of heat that really complimented the sweetness of the fruit.
This pizza was a big hit at our house, and our seven year old remarked that it was like “dessert for dinner!” and our three year old going for three helpings! We loved our pizza, too, the combination of sweet, savory and spicy making each bite a tasty adventure. It was even fantastic cold!
Here are some great pizza tools to get you started!
In any event, we hope you give this unique combination a try and enjoy it as much as we did!
