Fruit Pizza

 I made a delicious fruit pizza for our Fourth of July BBQ and it was a great hit.  I will definitely be making it again! 
Fruit Pizza
  • cooking spray
  • 1 package refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 oz (1/2 an 8 oz container) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cornstarch
  • Pinch of salt
Spray a pizza sheet with cooking spray. Spread cookie dough evenly over sheet. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes until very lightly golden brown. Let cool for an hour or more.
Beat cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Stir in whipped topping. Spread evenly over the crust.  Top with your favorite fresh fruits.  Make glaze while crust is still cooling. In a saucepan, bring sugar, OJ, water, lemon juice, cornstarch, and salt to a boil, stirring constantly for 2 min or until thickened. Let cool and brush over fruit. Store in the refrigerator. Best if made the same day as served.

***I waited till the glaze was completely cool to put my fruit on, that way I could brush the glaze over immediately and prevent the bananas from turning brown.
