In The Kitchen: Fruit Pizza

Hey, remember when the new year started and I decided I would make & feature at least one recipe a week... hah told you I don't stick things out very well. (You can check out my meals from week 1, week 2, week 3, week 4 and week 5)

Anyways, I had a few of you ask me about my fruit pizza recipe I referred to in my post Monday. It's a simple recipe that I've been making for years that is always a hit at parties and get togethers!

Fruit Pizza
12" pizza pan
1 pkg. refrigerator sugar cookie dough
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
1/ 3cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Several fresh or canned fruits of your choice (canned pineapple chunks, strawberries, kiwi, grapes, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, they all work!)

Cut the sugar cookie dough into thin slices and press down onto your pizza pan forming a "crust". Bake as directed on the dough package. While this is baking/cooling, you can cut up all your fruits into bite size pieces (you can leave pineapple chunks and berries as they are). Combine cream cheese and powdered sugar in a mixer, then spread onto dough. Add your fruits on top, in whatever pattern is appealing to you!
Cut with a pizza cutter and serve!

Note: my cookie dough usually seems rock hard after I let it cool, no worries - the cream cheese mixture will soften it right up once you spread it on there!

Have you ever made this before? Don't you love it? What are your favorite fruits to use? Yum! I suppose you could make it a little healthier by using Greek yogurt instead of the cream cheese mixture possibly?

i loooove fruit pizza!! my fam makes it and i always feel so 'healthy' eating it...bahahah :D my fam uses in season fruit, but kiwi, blueberries and strawberrise are usually staples (b/c of the color!) bananas are delish on it but tend to make it look less fresh, even if they are coated in glaze and 'protected' from browning. p.s. love your blog and so happy to start following!
