Fruit Pizza

That Family Fun was such a good issue! I made this on Sunday and it was E-A-S-Y. And it was good....And.....(brace yourself), my kids liked it!


Crust:(see below for my pizza dough recipe)

1 pound purchased pizza dough, or your favorite homemade recipe
1 tablespoon melted butter
2 tablespoons sugar


1 (8-ounce) package low-fat cream cheese at room temperature
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Topping:Assorted fruit (we used blueberries, banana slices, mandarin orange sections, seedless grapes, kiwi fruit slices, and strawberry halves)

1. Heat the oven to 400°.
2. Spread the dough in an ungreased 12-inch pizza pan. Brush on the butter and sprinkle on the 2 tablespoons of sugar. Bake the crust until it's golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool the crust on a wire rack.
3. In a medium-size bowl, combine the frosting ingredients with a rubber spatula. Stir until smooth.
4. Spread the frosting over the cooled crust. Gently press in the fruit. Serves 12.

This was my pizza crust recipe

1 cup warm water
2 tablespoons yeast
1/4 cup honey
2 teaspoons olive oil

Mix all the wet ingredients together, then the dry ones into the wet. Let it rise about an hour, give it a good punch, and let it rise some more.

You can also use refrigerated Sugar Cookie Dough for the crust, it saves so much time and tastes better to us!
