FRESH Ideas for Summer Desserts


Strawberry Chocolate Cheesecake Pizza



1 sheet puff pastry

flour, for dusting

4 ounces semisweet bakers chocolate

1 – 15 ounce container of part-skim ricotta

2 tablespoons sugar

3/4 cup whipped cream

2 cups sliced strawberries

2 teaspoons chopped mint leaves

1/4 cup crushed chocolate cookies



Thaw puff pastry sheet according to package directions. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On a well floured surface roll out sheet to about 12 x 12. Cut off corners to make a circle. Place on a pizza pan. Prick with a fork several times all over the sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden. Place ricotta and sugar in a food processor and whip for about a minute until smooth. Melt chocolate using a double boiler on the stove or in the microwave. Remove the ricotta from the processor and stir into the chocolate. Fold in the cream. When the puff pastry is ready allow it to cool. Spread the ricotta mixture over the top of the pastry. Scatter the strawberry slices over the top. Sprinkle with chopped mint leaves and chocolate cookie crumbs.
