Fruit pizza

Last week I made a delicious fruit pizza for work. With spring here and summer on its way I figure it is a good time to share the recipe for easy to make dessert.

Refrigerated sugar cookie dough (16 oz)
8 oz cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Fruit of your choice

Pat dough into a 12 to 14 inch pizza pan.* Bake at 350 until golden brown. Cool completely. Beat softened cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth and creamy. Spread on cooled cookie dough. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Top with fruit of choice such as strawberries, pineapple, kiwi, blueberries, mandarin oranges, etc.
*Just from personal experience if you use a pizza stone leave extra room on the sides because the dough will spread as it rises - I forgot to do this and was scraping dough off the bottom of my oven.
