Fruit Pizza With Strawberry Cream

Fruit pizza is a great dessert in my opinion. You can use a variety of different fruits, with summer fruits being the best in season. A huge sugar cookie, topped with strawberry cream, then a variety of different fruits sliced like pizza.

Fruit Pizza

For the sugar cookie crust (my own recipe)

2 c. flour
1 egg
2/3 c. granulated sugar
1/4 c. powdered sugar
2/3 c. melted butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 T. milk
1/2 T. lemon juice

Preheat to 375. In a large bowl, combine butter, egg, sugar and vanilla and mix on medium. Add milk, baking powder and lemon juice and mix as well. Add flour and mix. On a round pizza baking sheet, grease pan and then lay dough in pan and spread. Top with about 1 T. flour and pat down with your hands until spread evenly. Bake for about 8 minutes or until firm. Allow to cool.

For Strawberry Cream Whipped Topping
1 small carton of whipping cream or heavy cream
1/4 c. powdered sugar
Mix on medium to high until set well. Allow to chill in fridge for about 1/2 hour. Then add about 1 c. of strawberry yogurt and mix on medium speed until creamy.
Spread over cooled cookie crust. Then top with your choice of fruits. Suggestions are: kiwi, strawberry, banana, peach, blueberries, raspberries, etc.
