Simple Fruit Pizza

Dan

Each week I meet with an amazing group of ladies for Bible study that challenge me to the core! They are dear friends who I love sharing life with.  Each week, we take turns preparing snacks and hosting so that it's a little bit easier on each of us. I have to admit, last week was CRAZY around this place - it was my last week working with The Z Radio station and we had something almost every night of the week. Before I realized it, it was THURSDAY and the above mentioned amazing friends were heading over that night! I had NOTHING!! Until I remembered the simple and quick Fruit Pizza that a teammate had made in N.Africa and that I used when I had friends coming over for tea or dinner. You can also cheat by just buying a roll of sugar cookie dough. It's super tempting at times, but trust me, the sugar cookie recipe is simple and so good! 

 

Fruit Pizza

Pizza Crust (i.e. Sugar Cookie)

  • 1/4 C Milk
  • 1 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla
  • 1 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1 C Butter or Margarine (2 sticks)
  • 4 C Flour
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Eggs

 Soften margarine slightly, then add sugar, eggs and vanilla. Stir well, then mix in flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and milk.  Roll out the dough on a floured surface until it's a little more than 1/4" thick. You will have about 1/4 of the dough left - to use for sugar cookies!  Transfer the cookie to an un- greased pizza pan to make a big pizza. I bake mine on my pizza stone and it's perfect!  Bake at 350 degrees for about 15-18 minutes, checking it to make sure that it doesn't get too done. Let the sugar cookie crust cool completely before adding the cream cheese layer. 


Cream Cheese Layer

  • 8 oz. Cream Cheese (softened)
  • 1 C Powdered Sugar (i used about 1/4 c. more, give or take some...) 
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla
  • 4 oz. Cool Whip

Mix together cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat until smooth, then fold in the Cool Whip and stir well. If you want it to be a thinner cream cheese layer, use more cool whip. I like mine extra creamy! Spread the cream cheese layer over the cooled sugar cookie. Then you can start adding the fruit. I wait until right before serving it to add the fruit - so it's fresh and looks prettier.  I used strawberries, blueberries and pineapple - but you can add whatever you like or whatever is in season!
