Fruit Pizza

Oh yeah…

Our family loves this little breakfast so much, that we ended up making it twice! That is either devotion or maniacal addiction. I’m not sure which. At any rate–if you and your family are summer fruit freaks—like we are–this should do it for you–in a severe way. It is a simple enough recipe–but it takes either a little time or teamwork. Go for the teamwork because, just remember what your mama probably told you: “Many hands make light work,” or…a party.

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

This is the subjective part. You can pretty much use what ever kinds of fruit that floats your boat. We like banana slices, mandarin orange sections, seedless grapes, strawberry slices, pineapple and peach chunks, cherry halves, diced apples and raspberries. If you like kiwi and blueberries then, by all means, use them.

BIG, COOL, HELPFUL TIP: Pour the juice from the mandarins and canned pineapple into a bowl. Drop the apple chunks and banana slices into the juice for a few minutes and then drain. The citrus acid will keep the light fruits from turning brown.

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Pat or roll cookie dough into an ungreased 14-inch pizza pan. If you want to use a cookie sheet–you will need two packages of dough. Bake 12 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool.

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. We always start out all orderly and then end up just sprinkling the rest all over the place. Refrigerate for an hour or so to set the frosting.

Gobble it up.

  1. We love fruit pizza in our house too! I will have to try it with the regular sugar. I always just dump in powdered sugar until I get the taste I want. Either way- super yummy…

  2. yUUUm… it’s sooo good! I think we should make this for every event… always! πŸ˜‰ But I don’t want to get sick of it sooo I suppose I’ll have to just enjoy it every now and then! yUUUm!!!

  3. I’ve had this before from your recipe… and you’re definitely making me hungry. It’s a good thing I knew I needed to be in New York, or else it would be REALLY hard to not regret missing this this year πŸ˜‰

  5. Making this for tomorrow’s boating trip.
    My kids asked me what I was making and I told them fruit pizza. They just looked at me like that would be the grosses thing ever, until I explained to them that the crust was cookie and the “sauce” was cream cheese and sugar. They are now very excited to eat this in the morning! Thank you for the recipe!

  6. DUDE–I hope your kids don’t absolutely faint when they taste it. We routinely make at least two or there’s dreadful squabbling amongst the population.

    Hey are you up for the Harry Potter movie coming up? We’ve got the theater already…hee hee!

  7. I made sure I made the cookie sheet size. I know next time I will have to make two.

    When dos the move come out?
