Brie and Cranberry Pizza

What a delicious cheesy breakfast to wake up to. Last weekend I made this for myself and one of my daughters (the other twin was very jealous, because she is now on a gluten-free and dairy-free diet and yes I felt like a horrible mother... but I am just trying to use up the food we do have in the house, with some recipes I already had planned). We did enjoy this recipe very much and I do hope that I will be able to make it again soon.(maybe there is a way I can make it safe for her.. I am sure going to try) And of course I will be trying all kinds of other dariy-free and gluten-free recipes in the weeks to come (yes, I will be posting them too!) On Friday, I spent the better part of 8 hours looking at gluten-free/dairy-free blogs and printed out over 60 recipes that I know my entire family would love. The next step is to just get in the kitchen and give it a go! Wish me luck! And I hope some of you can re-make and enjoy this delicious breakfast!

Brie Cranberry Pizza
from Pillsbury

1 can Pillsbury Crescent Dinner Rolls
1 (8oz) pkg Brie cheese, rind removed, cut into 1/2" cubes
3/4 cup canned whole berry cranberry sauce
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Heat oven to 425°F. Lightly oil 12-inch pizza pan or 13x9-inch pan with olive oil. Unroll dough; separate into triangles. Place triangles in oiled pan with tips toward center (it's kinda hard to make it a complete circle, but do your best). Press out dough with hands. Bake at 425°F. for 5 to 8 minutes or until light golden brown.

Remove crust from oven. Place cranberry sauce in small bowl; stir to break up pieces. Spoon cranberry sauce by teaspoonfuls evenly over crust. Sprinkle cheese and sprinkle with pecans. Return to oven; bake an additional 6 to 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Cut into wedges or squares and Serve.

  1. Wow, very creative ingredients and sound delicious! I'll want a slice of these Brie Cranberry Pizza over a pepperoni any time!

  2. This looks great - I love brie! I think I will need totry this one.

  3. Hmmm....sounds totally similar to one on my blog! :-) And mine was actually gluten free (I used the GF bisquick recipe for pizza crust). If you leave off the brie, just use the cranberry sauce and cover it in chicken, veggies, and rosemary. Kayley will love it, even without cheese.

  4. Wow...this go perfectly with a glass of vino! ~Alison @ Prairie Story
