Why didn’t someone tell me how perfectly wonderful and easy to make this is? Why have you been holding out on me?
Needless to say, I will definitely be making this again.
Ingredients for Fruit Pizza. The blob in the pan is sugar cookie dough, cooked longer than it should have been, thanks for asking.
Mix whipped cream cheese with powdered sugar for the filling.
Spread over your sugar cookie crust. I would mention at this point that you should cut your pizza into slices or bars at this point.
It was not so much fun trying to cut through all the fruit.
If you are using berries and they are not in season, you can bring out their flavor by slicing and sprinkling with sugar. Let rest at room temperature about 20 minutes. I’m fairly certain people think I am nuts when I purchase berries because if they don’t smell like berries, they aren’t going in my cart. Go ahead, sniff a carton and see how many strange looks you get over in the produce department.
Once you’ve got the pizza, start layering on the fruit.
Keep on layering all that fruity goodness.
Arrange on a platter and watch them disappear!
Sugar cookie crust, baked (you can make from scratch or be lazy like me and purchase a tube of cookie dough
1 cup whipped cream cheese
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 banana, sliced
1 kiwi, peeled and sliced
1 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 cup grapes, sliced in half
1 can mandarin oranges
Bake your sugar cookie crust and let cool completely. You can use a round pizza pan or a baking sheet. I knew I was serving this on a rectangular platter so cutting it into squares made more sense.
Mix together cream cheese and sugar. Remove crust from pan then spread with whipped cream cheese. Slice.
Top with sliced fruit and serve.
How easy is that!
Go ahead, try it, you’ll like it!
