Fruit Pizza

Doesn't this look yummy? I think so! It's a fruit pizza. And one of my favorite things to make. I found a recipe on All Recipes. That's where I got this picture too. But it looks so yummy! And I want to make one tonight.

Me? I just wing it. I actually baked a pizza crust a little while ago. And after dinner, I'll put the whole thing together. I'm thinking it would be a great dessert tonight. And what am I going to put on top? Berries, kiwi, peaches, plums, and some grapes. I just mix up some cream cheese, a little sugar, and whipped cream. Really yummy!

I'm going to include the recipe I found. So you can follow it. But I definitely think you should try it out. Because it is delicious! Especially when you have fruit that is a little overripe and sweet. Happy Summer! ♥


1 (18 ounce) package refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

2 cups sliced fresh strawberries

1/2 cup white sugar
1 pinch salt
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon orange zest


1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Slice cookie dough and arrange on greased pizza pan, overlapping edges. Press dough flat into pan. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Allow to cool.

2.In a large bowl, soften cream cheese, then fold in the whipped topping. Spread over cooled crust. You can chill for a while at this point, or continue by arranging the fruit.

3.Begin with strawberries, sliced in half. Arrange in a circle around the outside edge. Continue with fruit of your choice, working towards the middle. If bananas are used, dip them in lemon juice so they don't darken. Then make a sauce to spoon over fruit.

4.In a saucepan, combine sugar, salt, corn starch, orange juice, lemon juice and water. Cook and stir over medium heat. Bring to a boil, and cook for 1 or 2 minutes, until thickened. Remove from heat, and add grated orange rind. Allow to cool, but not set up. Spoon over fruit. Chill for two hours, then cut into wedges and serve.
