Fruit Pizza

You may have heard of Dessert Nachos or Kitty Litter Cake, maybe even fruit pizza! With a unique and questionable name, you may be unsure of what you’re biting into. Like Fruit Pizza, these dishes have more to tell!

When I first heard of fruit pizza, I of course questioned it. Would a salty crust and tasty tomato sauce be paired with sweet fruit? No way! Well, I was wrong and gladly so.

Fruit pizza is nothing like pizza….except it’s a circle, has a crust, a spread, and toppings, and…well….I guess it does sound like pizza. But it’s sweet! Fruit pizza can be served as a sweet appetizer or for a dessert.  The beauty of it is you can pick any toppings you like! This is perfect as we are diving into summer-Easter, Mother’s Day, and Memorial Day…

Ingredients

1 (18 ounce) package refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
Fruit-some great fruits to use for fruit pizza are kiwi, pineapple, mandarin oranges, strawberries, and grapes.

Directions

Roll out cookie dough on a circular pizza pan.  Follow directions on packaging to cook.  When lightly browned, take out from oven and let cool.  Mix cream cheese and whipped topping. Spread on cookie. Add fruit and refrigerate until ready to serve.

    Fruit Pizza’s are delicious and can be made to anyone’s liking. You can put any type of fruit on this pizza perhaps maybe more berries and it would be out of this world.
