For a moment now I’ve been dreaming of sweet fruit and berry pizza. I’ve been browsing Pinterest & Instagram, drooling over delicious pictures while planning how my sweet pizza would look and taste like.. Most of the sweet pizzas are chocolate ones, but for some reason I’ve noticed that I was dreaming of caramel-like pizza, with lucuma”caramel”mousse and lucuma caramel sauce, with heaps of berries and fruits on top.
I sweetened the base with only banana, for it to be a bit sweet but not too much, since the lucuma-caramel toppings would be sweet enough. Lucuma might actually be one of my favorite superfood powders of all time: it’s versatile, and the caramel taste (when combined with coconut oil or cream) is just lovely, but in the end of the day you’re still eating a fruit, only in dried and powdered form! I use lucuma almost every day, and lately have noticed that most often combined with strong raw licorice, like in these Licorice-Date Fudges or in these Lucuma Blondies, Oh and these Mulberry Lucuma Candies are simply divine!
I chose all the lovely, fresh and sweet berries and fruits on top, and the result with caramel mousse and caramel sauce was delicious! A perfect dessert, or a pretty queen of a brunch menu. By changing the fruits and berries you can variate the taste of the pizza almost endlessly, and follow the seasons of fruits and berries, too!
Oh and thanks to the coconut flour the pizza is high in fibre, and thanks to the berries and fruits, it’s full of vitamins, antioxidants, and all the good stuff.
