So it took me 3 tries to get this one right. First time I used a wheat crust, and it was just a too powerful of a flavor for what I was trying for and so I tried for a second time. Alas, that one met with my mommy brain and it lost. My daughter had helped me get it all ready, we put it in the crock and near bed time, my daughter reminded me to take it out. I of course forgot and the next morning it smelled delicious! But it was so hard by then it was not edible. Luckily it didn’t ruin anything but our effort and ego’s. Third time it worked perfectly and tasted delicious.
Pillsbury Refrigerated Pizza Crust Dough (trust me, do white not wheat)
1 Teaspoon of Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon of Melted Unsalted Butter
1/2 Cup of Blackberries
1/2 Cup of Raspberries
1/4th Cup of Cut Up Strawberries
1/3rd Cup of Sugar
- You will need to use a 6 quart or larger crock-pot, the small ones are not big enough.
- Take out the pizza dough, use your rolling pin with a bit of flour and roll it out into the size of the bottom of the crock (I used parchment paper and drew the size of the inside of the crock using the crock lid as my guide).
- Place Pan Lining Paper at the bottom of the crock making it as smooth and bulge free as possible.
- Place the dough into the crock.
- Combine the olive oil and butter and brush the dough with it.
- Cover the crock with 3 paper towels attached, place the lid and push a fork in between (this catches water drips).
- Cook in crock on low for about 6 hours, or until it looks just about done.
- Then you will carefully spread the cleaned raspberries, blackberries and strawberries (or other fruit) over the dough and then pour the sugar over that.
- The Sugar needs to melt, it will generally take about an hour.
- Once it’s cooked, serve with fruit dip you find in the store, or ice cream.
- Tastes best warm.
This can be used with more then just the fruit used. Blueberries, Kiwi Fruit, Pineapple, Peaches and nectarines could be used easily as well.
As I stated in the beginning comments, I tried this first with a wheat crust and the wheat crust was way to strong, so I highly suggest using a white crust.
