Fruit Pizza

  • We had a potluck at work today.
  • I was just going to bring fruit, but decided to go an extra step to make a fruit pizza.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degree's.
  • The crust is from my sugar cookie recipe. You can use any one batch of sugar cookie dough, or even buy a mix from the grocery store.
  • I used a fork to make a hatching pattern on the crust before I baked it. Bake it until it is a slight brown. I found that it did take a little longer cooking it then when I make cookies. It's just thicker. For cookies it takes 8 to 10 minutes in the oven, for Fruit Pizza it took double that. Watch it carefully!
  • Let it cool.
  • Set out one 8 ounce package of cream cheese ahead of time, so it has a chance to soften. Add a 1/4 cup sugar, and 1 Tablespoon of vanilla. Use a fork to mash up the cream cheese, stir it all together and spread it on the crust. I found that a rubber baby food spoon works great to spread the cream cheese mix out.
  • Next is the fun part...adding the fruit!
  • I like to use 3 or more fruits, but this part is entirely up to you. I think Kiwi in particular is a pretty fruit on the inside, so I like to add that.
  • You can paint on frozen juice concentrate. Any juice is fine. I skipped this. I find that adding this on top is fine if you know it's all going to be eaten. But...if there is left overs, the frozen juice concentrate starts to seep into the crust making it mushy.
