Dishing It Up With Christine

Fruit Pizza

For our family Hawaiian Luau birthday party that we gave for our daughter-in-law a few weeks ago I made a fruit pizza instead of a cake.  It was so easy to make and everyone loved it (or so they said).

I bought two packages of sugar cookie dough and flattened them in a pizza pan. The recipe called for one but my pizza pan is large and one package wouldn't cover it.  Bake at 375 degrees for 11-15 minutes.  Cool.



In a bowl blend one package of  8oz. cream cheese and one cup confectioner sugar.  Spread cookie with cream cheese mixture.




Decorate with sliced fruit. I used one large peach, one green apple, one orange, fresh strawberries, and a couple of bananas. Blueberries, raspberries and kiwis are other fruits that could be used.



Before serving I dribbled chocolate syrup over the top. Not too much though. Slice like you would a pizza, but smaller pieces, because it is very rich.

I don't make this too often because it's a bit costly, but for the luau I thought it would fit the occasion.

Happy eating,
Christine

I've made fruit pizza before but never with chocolate sauce. I'll certainly be trying that next time. But just a dab per your instructions. YUM!

It looks delicious! Of course, I'd just skip the fruit, but add on more chocolate!
