Yummy Fruit Pizza Recipe


Every summer we make special treats for our family and friends and one of the best things to enjoy during the summer is fruit pizza. Just what is fruit pizza exactly, is it fruits on a traditional pizza? No. Instead it is just various fruits of your choice on a sugar dough that will be made in a pizza form. Here is a great recipe that you can use:

INGREDIENTS



1/2 package of refrigerated sugar cookie dough


8 ounces of whipped light cream cheese


1/3 cup sugar


1/2 teaspoon vanilla


1 tablespoon water


1/4 cup apricot preserves


Fruit of your choice (sliced bananas, sliced strawberries, sliced kiwi, seedless grapes cut in half, blueberries, melon balls sliced in half)




DIRECTIONS
CRUST: Spread the � package of sugar cookie dough over a 14-inch pizza pan. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 12 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Cool in the pan.

TOPPING: Blend the cream cheese with the sugar and vanilla until completely mixed. Spread in a thin layer over the cooled crust.

FRUIT LAYER: Creatively arrange the fruit in circles while slightly overlapping the slices around the crust.

GLAZE: Bring the water and preserves to a boil, stirring constantly. Lightly brush this glaze on top on the fruit to preserve the color. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
