FRUIT PIZZA

Fruit Pizza has such a wonderful presentation!!! It is fun just to look at!






Crust:

1 ¼ cups flour

1/3 cup brown sugar

3 Tablespoons powdered sugar

2/3 cup softened butter

Topping:

12 ounces cream cheese, softened

½ cup granulated sugar

1 Teaspoon vanilla

Fruit to layer over topping:

Strawberries

Raspberries

Blueberries

Bananas

Mandarin oranges

Peaches

Kiwi fruit, etc…

Crust: Mix all four ingredients together in a bowl until it forms a ball (do not overmix!). Press onto pizza pan until flat and even (leaving about 2-3 inches around perimeter) and use rolling pin if needed. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely.

Topping: Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla together until well combined. Spread over cooled baked crust. Arrange fruit on top starting with outer perimeter and working to the center. Sprinkle sugar over bananas and peaches if using to prevent browning.
