Fruit Pizza

Layer 1

Purchase one roll of Pillsbury sugar cookie dough (in the refrigerator - NOT
freezer - section.) Put it in the freezer for 20 minutes before using.
Slice the dough to medium thickness (about ¼ inch) and arrange cookie slices
on an ungreased pizza pan (you can use a disposable aluminum one). Make sure
the cookies are touching each other. Put that in a 300 degree oven until
cookies are done but not brown - about 15-20 minutes. Take out of oven and

Layer 2

8 oz cream cheese, softened by leaving out of the refrigerator one hour
½ cup sugar
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

Cream together the ingredients.

Layer 3

Assorted fruit. Try to choose fruit for their colors. I like to use kiwis,
canned mandarin oranges, fresh strawberries, rasberries, blueberries. Other
good fruits to use might be mangoes, pineapple, nectarines, blackberries,

Layer 4

½ cup orange juice
1/8 cup lemon juice
1/8 cup water
½ cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch

Mix together the sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan until well mixed. Add
liquids and stir until dissolved. Bring to a boil. Once liquid has boiled,
continue to boil for 1-2 minutes, until thickened.


Prepare layer 4, set aside. Prepare layer 1. While it is cooling, prepare
layer 2 and fruits. When layer 1 has cooled to room temperature, spread
layer 2 on layer one. Arrange fruits. Pour layer 4 over pizza slowly. You
may not need to use all of layer 4. Refrigerate fruit pizza at least one
hour before serving.
