Summer Berry Ice Cream Pizza coming in hot, wait no enjoy it while it’s hot… out and quick before it melts! Perfect treat to enjoy for the 4th or anytime this summer.
Summer is officially here along with the heat and humidity which means it’s ice cream time! A (my youngest daughter, age 11) has been wanting to get in the kitchen and baking and cook with me but I have been trying to avoid heating up the house with the oven and baking the banana bread we can’t stop early in the morning. My kids are not early risers, not even Baby G, so we have been whipping up some no bake treats. A is loving ice cream pizzas, aka Treatzza Pizza if you are a fan of Dairy Queen, and pretty much created this Summer Berry Ice Cream Pizza herself!
Not only did she put smiles on the faces of everyone who got to enjoy a slice but also mamas because I love spending time in the kitchen with her!
All you need is a handful of ingredients and about 30 minutes, plus about an hour for the pizza to set.
Cookies- A picked Golden Oreos for this one but we’ve also used Enjoy Life Vanilla Graham Cookies (gluten free, vegan) so I’ve added weight and measurements you will just have to use the amount of butter or coconut oil used if using other cookies or ones without cream filling.
Ice Cream- Your favorite vanilla ice cream! Any ice cream will do, we’ve used two favorites in our house Tillamook and NadaMoo (dairy free, vegan) and both are delicious!
Berries- We used fresh strawberries and defrosted frozen blueberries (so we could swirl), but any fresh or frozen berries can be used.
Butter (dairy free butter sub), or coconut oil for making the crust.
Simple, fun, and festive this is a great dessert to have the kids help with. It’s a sweet way to end the week, and enjoy of Friday, aka pizza night. Speaking of pizza, because we’ve been on a kick again recently, we made an amazing pizza crust without yeast last Friday. When you can’t get yeast just use beer! Hoping to share the recipe soon but only photographed on a Buffalo Chicken Pizza. As if 9 pizzas wasn’t enough Friday (social distancing get together with neighbors outside) we’ll be testing again up north. IF all goes well I might share the recipe with those photos since I won’t have my stuff up north and will get it shared next week.
I can’t wait to whip up another Summer Berry Ice Cream Pizza for the 4th after picking strawberries. That is unless A takes over again.
Hope you all have a wonderful week and a safe 4th of July!
