    Whether you are feeding friends and relatives with allergies (lactose intolerance?), those watching their fat intake (cholesterol?) or committed vegans, the holidays can sometimes seem like more of a challenge than a celebration.

    With relatives coming, I wanted a fanciful breakfast pizza that everyone could eat, so I grabbed a package of frozen puff pastry, envisioning this as my base, a carton of GO Veggie! Dairy Free Vegan Cream Cheese in Strawberry flavor, which I imagined would be the healthy, lactose-free, vegan “glue,” and a few cartons of fresh berries for the topping.

    With berry-crazy kids, this was going to be an epic special breakfast! What I didn’t realize was how pretty it would be, as well. That’s a bonus when you’re having guests over.

    Holiday Breakfast Pizza with Fresh Berries on the blog Shockingly DeliciousSummary: Light, fruity and fun for a special breakfast or brunch buffet, this Breakfast Pizza with Fresh Berries will wow them for showmanship and style.

    Ingredients

    • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry (I used Pepperidge Farm brand)
    • 1 (8-ounce) container GO Veggie! Dairy Free, Vegan Strawberry Cream Cheese Alternative
    • 1 (6-ounce) container fresh raspberries
    • 1 (6-ounce) container fresh blueberries
    • 2 (6-ounce) containers fresh blackberries
    • 1 (8-ounce container fresh strawberries

    • ¼ teaspoon almond extract
    • 2 teaspoons sugar (or equivalent other sweetener of your choice)
    • Garnish: powdered sugar (optional)

    InstructionsHoliday Breakfast Pizza with Fresh Berries on the blog Shockingly Delicious

    1. Thaw 1 sheet of puff pastry, per package directions, and cut in half lengthwise (so you will have roughly 2 pieces about 10×4.5 inches each).Holiday Breakfast Pizza with Fresh Berries on the blog Shockingly Delicious
    2. With the tip of a sharp knife, gently score the top of each puff pastry diagonally in several spots. If you don’t do this, the pastry will puff up like a football (trust me on this; I am not going to show you the picture because I don’t want to humiliate myself).Holiday Breakfast Pizza with Fresh Berries on the blog Shockingly Delicious
    3. Bake per package directions (my package advised 400 degrees for 15 minutes). Remove pastries from oven, slide onto a wire rack and cool completely.
    4. While they are cooling, assemble the “glue.” Scrape GO Veggie! Dairy Free, Vegan Strawberry Cream Cheese Alternative into a mixing bowl, add 6 raspberries and 3 strawberries that have been mashed with a fork (to amp up the color of the glue), vanilla paste, almond extract and sugar. Stir to mix well.Holiday Breakfast Pizza with Fresh Berries on the blog Shockingly Delicious
    5. When crust is cool, place it on your serving platter, and slather on some of the flavored spread. A small offset spatula is helpful to spread it to the edges.Holiday Breakfast Pizza with Fresh Berries on the blog Shockingly Delicious
    6. Carefully seat berries in the strawberry spread, arranging in any pattern you like. There will be enough berries so you can make a fanciful pattern if you like. Repeat spread and decoration with the other crust.Holiday Breakfast Pizza with Fresh Berries on the blog Shockingly Delicious
    7. Dust with powdered sugar if you like.
    8. Makes 8 ample pieces.
