Fruit Pizza

Filed under: Uncategorized — sunfloursweets @ 12:43 am

If you are missing those warm summer days and want to bring a little of that back into your kitchen, try this fruit pizza.  I found this recipe at the beginning of summer and made it many times in the last few months.  The recipe originally had the pizza crust made from scratch, but I found this to be equally as yummy and much faster.  Most people use yogurt as their topping to spread over the crust- and good for them, because it is healthier.  But since I put FRUIT on my pizza, that is enough healthiness in one dessert!

One tip I will share is that as soon as I pull the crust from the oven, I take a pizza cutter and roll it around the edges to give it a nice clean and round edge.  It makes it look professional!  The other tip I will give is to cut the crust into your pieces before you spread the cream cheese on it.  It ends up being easier to serve and looks nicer in the end. 

Fruit Pizza

  • 1/2 tube sugar cookie dough
  • 1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese (softened)
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 2 t. vanilla
  • Fruit (strawberries, bananas, mandarin oranges, blueberries, kiwi etc.)

Pat sugar cookie dough until evenly distributed to the edges of a round, greased pizza pan.  Bake cookie dough at 350 degrees until golden brown (about 12 minutes).  Remove from oven and let cool.

Cream together softened cream cheese, sugar and vanilla on medium speed until smooth.  Spread over cookie crust.  Top with sliced fruit.
