Fruit pizza is a refreshing dessert for your summertime event! It is easy, customizable, and oh so yummy! My kids absolutely loved this fruit pizza and it was a great dessert to let them help in me in the kitchen. This would make a great 4th of July dessert, just switch up the fruit and use strawberries, blueberries, and bananas to create the red, white, and blue for your celebration!
The first thing we do is create the crust out of sugar cookie dough. I sliced the dough in thin slices and placed them on a round baking pan, slightly overlapping. I then pressed the pieces down flat and together to start forming one large circle.
18 oz package sugar cookie dough
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 small container Cool Whip
1-2 bananas, sliced
1 lb peaches, sliced. You can use can or fresh, but fresh are better
8 oz can pineapple chunks, drained well
1 pt strawberries, sliced
(Use any fruits you wish, kiwi fruit, sliced grapes, blueberries, etc)
1/2 cup peach preserves
2 Tbsp water
1. Cut the cookie dough into slices. Arrange on a circular pan, slightly overlapping. Press down to make a continuous circle crust. Bake according to the directions, until lightly browned.
2. Blend cream cheese with Cool Whip. Spread evenly over the cooled crust.
3. Arrange the fruit in groups.
4. Combine the peach preserves and water, mix well. Drizzle over the completed fruit pizza. (Can use Apricot preserves for a different flavor)
