Fresh Fruit Pizza

How does this sound: a soft sugar cookie crust topped with a dreamy cream cheese frosting and garnished with colorful glazed fresh fruit? Pretty darn good, right? I dug out my pizza pan and pat out a round of cookie dough to form the crust. My favorite icing was spread over the baked cookie before artfully placing berries and fruit over the surface. What a perfect way to celebrate pizza!!

National Pizza Month

If not for the Sunday Supper gang, I’d have no idea that it was the month of the pizza. My Pizza Margherita is one of the few entrees that the whole family loves. I have one, not to be named daughter, who favors plain cheese pizza, while the guys want the meat lovers, heart attack special. I love a more gourmet version with a fair share of veggies like artichokes, spinach, and mushrooms. But I get vetoed every time. So why not go with a dessert pizza? Dilemma solved.  Check out all the amazing pizzas created by the the Sunday Supper Tastemakers.National Pizza month recipes!

A vibrant, delicious dessert pizza with a sugar cookie crust and cream cheese frosting! Crust adapted from Sally's Baking Addiction,
Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 12 servings
Ingredients
Crust:
  • ½ cup butter, at room temperature
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1½ cups flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1½ teaspoons cornstarch
Frosting:
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ½ cup butter, at room temperature
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1¼ cup powdered sugar, sifted
To finish:
  • Fresh fruit, sliced as needed (I used blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, green grapes, and kiwi)
  • ¼ cup trained apricot jam to glaze, optional
Instructions
  1. Cream the butter and sugar with a hand mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cornstarch. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix until just combined. Cover and chill at least 30 minutes, but longer is better to prevent spreading when baked.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 12-inch pizza pan and pat the cold cookie dough into a flat round. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until very light brown. Do not over-bake. Cool before frosting.
  4. To make frosting, whip the cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and lemon juice and mix until combined. Add the powdered sugar and mix until well incorporated.
  5. Spread frosting over cooled crust leaving about ½-inch of the edge unfrosted. Arrange fruit in concentric circles as desired.
  6. To glaze, heat the strained apricot jam with a teaspoon of water. I used the microwave. Using a pastry brush, glaze the fruit.
  7. To serve, cut in wedges.
