This is a very colorful and delicious dessert that all ages will enjoy. You can serve it with brunch or as a dessert after dinner. I have included the “easy” way to fix the dough and also a handmade version.
- 1 (16 oz.) pkg. refrigerated sugar cookie dough or
- 1 sheet frozen puff pastry thawed (1/2 of 17.3-oz. pkg)
Or make your own crust:
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. salt
Cream the butter, sugar and shortening until light and fluffy; add the egg and vanilla. Sift together all of the dry ingredients and add to the creamed mixture.
Whichever crust you decide to use press the dough into a 14-inch pizza pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes or until browned; cool.
- 1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 1 (8 oz.) carton frozen whipped topping, thawed
Beat cream cheese and confectioners’ sugar until smooth; fold in whipped topping; spread over crust.
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 2 tbsp. water
- 1 tbsp. lemon juice
- 1-1/2 tsp. cornstarch
- pinch of salt
Bring all of the ingredients to a boil, stirring constantly for 2 minutes or until thickened. While glaze is cooling arrange your fruit over the pizza. Gently brush glaze over fruit and chill.
I used strawberries cut in half, mandarine oranges, kiwi sliced, bananas sliced and blueberries. My nephew Denny loved this dessert 🙂
If you would like a chocolate drizzle on top melt some white or dark chocolate. Dip a large spoon into the bowl of melted chocolate. I have three different sizes of dipping spoons.
