Vanilla Fruit Pizza Recipe

For an easy showstopper, give Julie Meyer's eye-popping fruit pizza a try. "Like everyone else, I enjoy desserts...but not the calories that come with them," writes the student from Madison, Wisconsin. "My roommates and I don't feel guilty about gobbling down a pizza with good-for-you toppings like strawberries, Kiwifruit and pineapple."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. + chilling YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet refrigerated pie pastry
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 package (.8 ounce) cook-and-serve vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 package (.3 ounce) sugar-free lemon gelatin
  • 1 package (8 ounces) fat-free cream cheese, cubed
  • Sugar substitute equivalent to 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat whipped topping
  • 1-1/2 cups quartered fresh strawberries
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced halved peeled kiwifruit
  • 1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened pineapple chunks, drained

Directions

  • 1. On a lightly floured surface, roll out pastry to a 12-in. circle. Transfer to a 14-in. pizza pan; prick with a fork. Bake at 450° for 5-6 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
  • 2. In a saucepan, combine the water and pudding mix until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Whisk in gelatin; cook and stir 1 minute longer or until thickened. Remove from the heat and let cool.
  • 3. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar substitute until smooth; fold in whipped topping. Spread cream cheese mixture over crust to within 1/2 in. of edges. Spread gelatin mixture evenly over cream cheese mixture. Arrange fruit over top. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until chilled. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 8 servings.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with Splenda no-calorie sweetener.

"I made this for one of my acting classes out here in Los Angeles. Actors, *pfsh... always gotta avoid something. They're a sensitive bunch. I made this sugar free and everyone loved it! I've made the traditional sugary version before and both were polished off quite nicely!"

"Well, I've thoroughly denied this has any sugar or calorie threats...I've made versions of this with a brownie base and since I work at a major pizza franchise, I have also used the thin crust, prebaked also, and it comes out fabulous also. Enjoy!"

"RE: Fruit Pizza

While your nutritional is good, you might want to consided adding sugar grams along with fat, etc. Cooking light also includes monitoring sugar in take. Thanks! I've been making this dessert for years but using a much more fatty/sugary cookie base. Now I will use a prepared pie shell!"

"One thing I have been doing lately for a sugar supplement in my pies and cream fillings is using honey. It is all natural and you don't have to use as much and it really adds to the flavor!"

"Fruit pizzas are always a big hit when I make them for work. Sometimes I use sugar cookie dough for the crust or I will make a crust using a cake mix. There are so many ways to decorate the top using different fruits. Glaze them with apple jelly or apricot preserves. Yummy"
