Fruit Pizza

I’d been craving some fruit pizza for awhile. And then we had a food day at the office, and I had found a new recipe from Six Sister’s Stuff, so it was perfect. Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients:

Sugar Cookie Crust

  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup butter or margarine
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs

Cream Cheese Layer

  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 8 oz. cool whip

Fruit Topping

  • For this, you can really use any fruits you prefer. I used:
    • Strawberries
    • Peaches
    • Blueberries
    • Raspberries
    • Grapes
    • Kiwis

Directions:

Sugar Cookie Crust

  • Preheat oven to 350*
  • In a mixer, beat softened butter/margarine.
  • Add sugar, eggs, and vanilla.
  • Then add in flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and milk
  • Chill dough for about an hour. This will make it easier to roll out
  • Roll out the dough on a floured surface until it’s 1/4″ thick. (I made a mistake here and just put it all in the pan I used, and pressed it out with my hands. I would definitely recommend rolling it out first and then moving it to the pan.)
  • Transfer the dough to an ungreased pan. You can use a round pizza pan or a cookie sheet. I used a 12 x 16 pan to make more. However, as you’ll see in the picture below, using all of the dough made for a pretty thick cookie crust. Everyone liked it, but it’s a lot of cookie. So if you want less… make some miniature pizzas as well or make the recipe a little smaller.
  • Bake at 350* for 13 minutes.
  • Make sure the crust cools completely before adding the cream cheese layer

Cream Cheese Layer

  • Mix together cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla – beat until smooth
  • Fold in the cool whip
  • Spread the cream cheese layer over the sugar cookie crust. This makes a pretty good sized layer, and it’s so delicious
  • Add your fruit!
