Ultimate Fruit Pizza Recipe
Here’s a classic dessert from Peggy Galyen of Tilden, Nebraska that makes a refreshing snack any time of year. "We made smaller individual pizzas at school with our junior-high students," she says. "All of them enjoyed choosing their favorite fruits to make the pizzas and then eating them. They’re a fast, fun party idea for kids of all ages!"
- 1 tube (16-1/2 ounces) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
- 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling

- 3/4 cup green grapes, halved
- 3/4 cup fresh strawberries, halved
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1 can (5-1/2 ounces) unsweetened apple juice
- 1. Let dough stand at room temperature for 5-10 minutes to soften. Press onto an ungreased 12-in. pizza pan. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until deep golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
- 2. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and lemon juice. Spread over crust. Top with pie filling; arrange the pineapple, oranges, grapes and strawberries over filling.
