easy fruit pizza

Happy Friday! I can't believe we're kicking off July already! We have a four-day weekend with Dustin home so us girls are all excited for some fun plans and time relaxing as a family. 

This past week I made one of my favorite desserts ever -- fruit pizza -- and everytime I make it I'm always amazed at how easy it is! This would be a perfect addition to your cookout this weekend and is even better the next day, so delicious and refreshing!


what you'll need
(1) roll refrigerated sugar cookies (16.5 oz)
(1) package cream cheese, softened (8 oz)
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 kiwifruit, peeled, halved lengthwise and sliced
1 cup halved or quartered strawberries
2/3 cup blueberries

what you'll do
1 // Heat oven to 350 degrees

2 // Using a rectangular cookie sheet or round pizza pan, spray bottom with cooking spray or line with parchment paper or a silpat baking mat 

3 // Roll out sugar cookie dough into pan, either forming it into a large circle or rectangle; press evenly into pan to form the crust

You can also use a cookie cutter to cut individual shapes out and then bake them on parchment paper like you would traditional cookies. I did this for a picnic party for Olivia's 4th birthday using the flower cookie cutter from this 4-piece set so everyone could have their own mini fruit pizza.


4 // Bake 14-16 minutes or until lightly golden brown and then cool completely, about 30 minutes (if doing cookies, I bake for about 12 minutes)

5 // In a small bowl, beat the softened cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy

6 // Once cooled, spread mixture evenly over crust or frost cookies individually

7 // Arrange fruit as desired over cream cheese

8 // Refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour

10 // To serve, cut into wedges or squares; cover and refrigerate any remaining pizza

Hope you have the best weekend and Happy 4th of July!! XO
