- Premade pizza dough
- Fresh berries
- 1 TBS honey more to taste
- 4 oz cream cheese softened
- 7 oz container of plain Greek yogurt
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- Dark chocolate bar
Roll out your pizza dough. Oil one side and then place on a preheated grill on high.
Leave open and grill one side 2-3 minutes, constantly checking so it doesn’t burn. Brush with oil before flipping and grilling another 1 or 2 minutes. Remove from grill and set aside to cool.
Cream together cream cheese, yogurt, honey and vanilla until smooth.
Spread dough with cream cheese frosting, top with berries and shaved dark chocolate.
-Use as much honey as needed. You can also substitute with maple syrup or remove the sweetener and vanilla and use vanilla Greek yogurt.
-I used half of a one pound package of dough.
-To make curled chocolate, use a vegetable peeler on the side of a bar of chocolate.
