FRUIT PIZZA

This is a great summertime treat and since it is one of my husband's favorites, I made it for Father's Day for him.   Maybe you already have this recipe, but if you don't....here you go.   It's so simple to make and of course, other than the base ingredients you can totally make it your own by picking and choosing which of your favorite fruits to use.

The base is made from the pre-made sugar cookie dough that you find in the refrigerator section of the grocer.    Press it onto an ungreased pizza pan and bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes.  The topping is Marzetti's cream cheese fruit topping.  Once the cookie has cooled, spread the topping all over the top of the pizza.

Finally, add your fruit.  On mine I sliced up some strawberries, and kiwi.  I also used blackberries, mandarin oranges and some crushed pineapple for the center.


After it is made, you want to chill it for several hours.  I will tell you my husband actually likes it even more a day later when the cookie gets really soft after the  cream cheese topping soaks in a bit.    Last, I will warn you....plan on the first piece being your own (since I have yet to master how to get the first piece out off the pan without it falling apart). Once you get the first one out, you're golden.   TIP:  After slicing it---use a spatula to get up under the piece and it lifts off much better.  Enjoy!!
