An easy recipe for a Beet Crust Dessert Pizza: a sweet and colorful way to sneak more veggies into your diet! Hooray!
Today I bring you a little healthy and a little sweet all wrapped up in one fabulous gluten free (and red!) package all courtesy of Shashi from Runnin' Srilankan! I found Shashi over on Spiced (you remember David with the Parmesan rolls right?) and I couldn't help but be pulled in by her bubbly personality and health-food focused blog!
If you are ever wondering how to sneak more beets into your diet, Shashi has you covered! If you think this pizza is genius, you must check out her Beet Hot Chocolate, Beet Crepes, or these Chocolate Beet Cookies!
I discovered that Shashi lives in Atlanta right before I had to leave for NYC, but you'd better believe that we'll be meeting up as soon as I get back!
Hi American Heritage Cooking Fans - I am Shashi from RunninSriLankan and I am so honored to be here today, posting for master cupcake extraordinaire and fellow Atlanta Blogger, Lindsey! Lindsey and I "met" through comments on David's blog and I have had to slap myself silly whenever I have found myself scrolling through her drool-inducing posts ever since!
While I wait for those discounted candies to go on sale, my daughter and I will be chowing on some dessert beet pizza! The beet pizza base isn't too different from my past beet pizzas - but it does have one teaspoon cane sugar and teaspoon vanilla in it.
I baked the base first and let it come to room temperature before topping it with whipped coconut cream, chocolate and peanut butter chips and melted chocolate and melted peanut butter. This dessert beet pizza is quite popular at our home and we have also topped it with whipped cream instead of the whipped coconut. One time, my daughter even insisted we top it with frozen yogurt and homemade hard-shell -and seeing she had a healthy dose of veggies in her dessert, I couldn't argue!
Lindsey, here! You should check out Savory Spin for more healthy meals & treats!
