Sometimes I go years without making some of my favorite recipes. Like this one - fruit pizza. Growing up, my grandma would often make fruit pizza for Sunday night get-togethers. It was always a treat, and we always finished every last bite.
Depending on what fruit you use, this can be a really cheap recipe. Choose seasonal fruit to top your pizza, or use everyday cheap fruit such as grapes, kiwi, mandarin oranges, or apples. Using frozen fruit is also a good money-saving option. Just remember to let the fruit thaw, and drain any excess water before placing on pizza.
Fruit Pizza Recipe
Try making individual fruit pizzas. Start by making large cookies out of the cookie dough, top with cream cheese mixture and fruit.
1 package refrigerator sugar cookie dough
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups fresh fruit (approximately)
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 12-inch pizza pan. Remove sugar cookie dough from package and press evenly onto pan. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until cookie crust is golden brown. Set aside to cool.
In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Spread onto cookie crust. Top with your choice of fruit.
