Well this is not a brand new idea of using fruits in pizza or making a sweet version of pizza. You might have come across so many sweet pizzas in online or television , may be cook books. There are so many sweet version of pizzas like using chocolate, fruits and cheese, coconut, dry fruits etc.....
The recipe which I have given here is just my own version. My sweet version of pizza doesn't contain any cheese, rather I used homemade strawberry syrup and custard. You can enjoy these as a naughty breakfast or as a snack. Without any doubt my kids loved it, since they had everything which they needed i.e. jam, custard and strawberries...

Prepare the sauce :
Place the strawberries and syrup in a sauce pan, heat it in medium to low heat. After few minutes the strawberries get mashed and looks like a liquid. At this stage remove it from heat and let it cool down completely. When it's completely cooled it looks like a jam and easy to spread. You can even prepare the sauce a day before and put it in the refrigerator.

Mix the custard powder, milk and honey without any lumps. Heat it in medium to low heat, keep stirring continuously until it looks like a thick custard consistency. Take it off from heat and let it cool down completely.

Preheat the oven to 200 degree Celsius. Take the dough punch the air back. Take a 10 cm round pizza tray or any baking tray. Grease and dust it with flour. Spread the dough in the shape of the baking tray. Spread the sauce on top of the pizza. Then spread the custard gently on top of the sauce without any mess. Bake it in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Take the pizza out and spread the freshly cut strawberries on top it. You can serve this warm or cold. If you are planning to serve cold, arrange the fruits once the pizza gets cold.
