There are certain recipes that just never get old. Fruit pizza is one of those recipes in my book–an oldie but goodie.
I remember having Fruit Pizza for the first time back during our newlywed days — 16 years ago! We were at a social gathering with a group from our church, and were eating potluck style. Someone brought Fruit Pizza and I remember thinking it was such a pretty dish! I will never get over the beauty of the color and texture of fruit. Put it on top of a sugar cookie crust and it becomes one of my favorite desserts. All that nutritious fruit helps me feel better about the sugar.
This recipe takes the classic Fruit Pizza and adds a simple glaze to make it shine! It is a great finishing touch that makes the pizza even more beautiful.
2 pkgs. packaged sugar cookie dough
1 (8oz) pkg. cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups chopped fresh fruit – kiwi, grapes, clementines, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, mango
Honey Lime Glaze
1/3 cup honey
2 limes, juiced
zest of one lime
Press cookie dough into sheet cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let cool.
Mix softened cream cheese, sugar & vanilla until creamy. Spread on top of cooled crust.
Pat chopped fruit with paper towels, making sure it is not too wet. Arrange evenly over the cream cheese layer.
Whisk honey glaze ingredients and drizzle over the pizza.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
