Fruit Pizza

A few weeks ago I enthused about this Fruit Pizza in our April Top Ten List. It is truly delicious. A couple of you asked for the recipe, so here it is:
  • 1 pk. (18 oz.) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 1 pk. (8oz.) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 C. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • sliced fruit for the top ( I usually do strawberries, kiwi, and canned pineapple, but blackberries and mandarin oranges have been tasty when I can find them on sale.)
Preheat oven to 325*. Roll cookie dough out on a greased pizza pan. I love my Pampered Chef large round baking stone, but anything works. Even a cookie sheet will do the trick if you can't find a pizza pan. Bake 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. (I NEVER do the toothpick thing. Reducing my carbon footprint by saving trees. Or something.) Cool completely. Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in a small mixing bowl until smooth. Spread evenly over cooled cookie crust to within 1/2 inch of edge. Arrange fruit as desired on top of the cream cheese mixture. If you're just the tiniest bit OCD like me you'll arrange the fruit in concentric circles, making it almost too pretty to eat. If, not, you can probably just dump it on there. In theory it should taste the same. I wouldn't know. Refrigerate at least 1 hour. For anyone who cares, it's 28g. of carbs per slice (1/16 of whole pizza). Enjoy! I make this recipe a little too often and I've got the junk in the trunk to prove it.
P.S. My family spoiled me today for mother's day. Bagels and cream cheese with orange juice smoothies for breakfast and homemade Bolognese sauce on pasta for dinner. Lots of hugs and homemade stuff from school. I love it!
