Fruit Pizza

Here’s a totally easy, totally delicious, healthy-ISH (note the emphasis on the “ish”) dessert.

For the crust:

We used a tube of ready-to-bake sugar cookie dough, but that’s just one option. You could use pre-made chocolate chip cookie dough or make your own dough. Just roll the dough out to pizza size and bake (at the temperature specified in your cookie recipe) until it’s done, which will probably be about 5 minutes longer than the time required to make normal size cookies.

For the sauce:

We made a cream cheese frosting.

12 ounces low fat or fat-free cream cheese at room temperature

½ cup sifted confectioner’s sugar

2 tsp. vanilla extract

Combine all ingredients in a food processor until smooth.

For the topping:

You can use any fruit you want. We had just been strawberry-picking so we used strawberries and a couple kiwis. You could also use raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, bananas, peaches, star fruit…any kind of fruit would be delicious. (I do have reservations about melon, though.)

To assemble:

Spread frosting on the giant cookie and load it up with fruit.
