Last night the Young Women and Young Men came over for a swimming activity at my house so I decided to have a pizza party along with the swimming, a dessert pizza party! This one started off from a Pampered Chef recipe simply called “Dessert Pizza” which I started making and then changed a little along the way. It was so good!
1 (18 oz) package refrigerated sugar cookie dough (the sugar cookie mix was cheaper so I went with that)
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
4 cups assorted fresh fruits such as strawberries, kiwi, bananas, peaches, grapes, blueberries or raspberries
1 Preheat oven to 350. For crust, shape cookie dough into a ball. Place dough in center of pizza stone, flatten slightly with palm of hand. Using lightly floured rolling pin, roll out dough to 12″ circle, about 1/4″ thick. Bake 18 – 20 minutes or until light golden brown; cool 10 minutes. Carefully loosen cookie from stone and cool completely. (So here’s what I did, first I lined the stone with a piece of parchment paper which I also sprayed with cooking spray. Mix sugar cookie mix according to package directions, place dough on center of paper lined stone and then, with your hands, spread/push dough out on stone into a 12″ circle. Bake as directed above.)
2 For topping, combine cream cheese and sugar and mix well. Spread mixture evenly over cookie. Slice up fruit and arrange on top of cookie. (I was thinking that the fruit dip I love would be an excellent topping for this pizza so that’s what I topped it with. You need 1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese, 1 jar of marshmallow cream and 1 cup powdered sugar. Combine them all together and spread over cookie then top with fruit. I used a can of pineapple rings, a can of mandarin oranges, some strawberries and grapes and a couple of kiwis.)
