Fruit Pizza

Do you need a fun dessert for Memorial Day?  I love to making a beautiful Fruit Pizza!  This is a fun dessert that is easy to make, and yet it looks like you have been slaving all day in the kitchen!  :)fruit pizzaI bought a new tart pan and I wanted to try it out, so I found this fun recipe for a new crust…it is kind of like a pie dough and kind of like cookie dough!  It is flaky and sweetened with powdered sugar, so it is not too sweet!  The link for the dough is found here, at Sally’s Baking Addiction.  This is a great dough if you want to make it from scratch, but if you are pressed for time you can simply use a  store bought sugar cookie dough in the refrigerated section at the grocery store.  Both work great!  fruit pizzaI used a simple mixture of cream cheese, cream, powdered sugar and vanilla for the filling.  It is very creamy and with just the right amount of sugar to not overwhelm the fruit!fruit pizzaI liked using the tart pan, because it is the perfect size for my husband and I.  We were able to eat the entire fruit pizza in a matter of a few days and the last bite tasted as good as the first bite!  I love the shine that is on top of this fruit pizza, it is a simple mixture of apricot preserves and water!  So easy, but it makes the pizza look even prettier!

Remove from oven to a cooling rack and let it cool completely.
Filling
  1. Using a mixer, beat the cream cheese until fluffy for a minute or two, slowly add the whipping cream and mix for one more minute. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Beat on medium high for for about 1 minute until light and fluffy. Spread into the cooled crust.
