Fruit Pizza Recipe
This delicious pizza has a cookie dough crust, a sweet cream cheese sauce, and is topped with your favorite fruits for a dessert that will appeal to kids and adults alike.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 32 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 (18-ounce) package refrigerated cookie dough
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract or other flavoring (almond, orange, or lemon)
  • Fresh blueberries, banana slices, mandarin orange sections, seedless grapes, strawberry halves, kiwifruit (or any other
  • 1/2 cup orange, peach, or apricot preserves
  • 1 Tablespoon water

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line an ungreased 14-inch pizza pan with cookie dough cut in 1/8-inch slices, overlapping slightly. Bake 12 minutes or until light brown; remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.

In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract or other flavoring; spread over cookie crust. Arrange fruit over cream cheese layer in any design you want (use your imagination).

In a small saucepan over very low heat, make a glaze by heating preserves and water. Brush glaze over fruit, making sure to cover the fruit that will turn dark. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Note: This does not keep well, so plan on using it up. You may also use your own sugar cookie recipe in place of the refrigerated dough.

Makes 8 to 10 servings

Fruit Pizza, Member LoriHuffman

I have made this recipe several times but without the glaze. At work, all the women in my office LOVE this dessert & for celebrations, we usually have someone make this. IT IS DELICIOUS, even w/out the glaze. I've also used powdered sugar in place of regular sugar & it gives the cream cheese spread a little more sweetness but I prefer to make w/regular sugar. It's one of the easiest desserts to make. Cutting the fruit is the most time consuming aspect of this recipe. Cutting & bagging the fruit, with the exception of the bananas, ahead of time makes putting the pizza together easier.
