Vanilla Fruit Pizza Recipe

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.
