Friday afternoon I was just craving something summer-y and sweet. Our team mothers used to make us Fruit Pizza in college all the time for home tournaments. It just sounded like the perfect dessert for a warm, Spring evening.
I made the crust out of sugar cookie dough. Bought a roll of it at the store and pressed it into the round baking pan. I baked it in the oven for about 8-10 minutes, or just barely golden brown at 350 degrees. Took it out and let it cool.
I then chopped up some berries and kiwi for the topping. You can use whatever fruit you like most!
The “sauce” for the pizza is just a cream cheese mixture.
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Then spread that all over the cooled sugar cookie crust. Then top with your cut up fruit! Voila!
It’s really simple and easily adaptable to your favorite fruits. You could even make a chocolate cream cheese mixture by just adding some cocoa powder to it! Yum!
