Fruit Pizza

In Oxford, the 4th of July is actually celebrated on the 3rd in the form of the Freedom Festival. There's a parade and a whole big party at the community park on the 3rd complete with fireworks. And since we got that day off anyway, we decided to celebrate along with the town! A pretty big group of us got together to grill, swim, and enjoy the holiday. Since it was a cookout, everyone brought something. My go-to dish to bring to cookouts is always fruit pizza. It's a pretty big hit so I thought I would share the recipe I use to make it!

Sugar cookie // I used two rolls since I was making it on a full cookie sheet
1 package of cream cheese // I like to keep the icing thin to make the fruit the star of the pizza
Powdered sugar // 1 1/2-2 cups
Fruit // strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, kiwi, mandarin oranges, pineapple

Step One // Flatten and spread sugar cookie dough on the baking sheet. Like I said, I used two rolls because I was using a cookie sheet. Using more dough also made the whole pizza thicker and therefore easier to eat in my opinion! Bake the cookie according to package directions.
(Totally forgot to take a picture of this part, but my hands were covered in dough.)

Step Two // Mix cream cheese and powdered sugar in a bowl until creamy. You can use more or less powdered sugar depending on how sweet you want it. I used probably closer to 2 cups this time.

Step Three // Once the cookie is done baking, stick it in the fridge to cool down. After it's cooled, spread your cream cheese icing.

Step Four // Cut up any and all fruit you want to put on the pizza. I stuck with pretty standard fruit, but you totally use different fruit!

Step Five // Distribute fruit evenly across the pizza.

Step Six // Cut into pieces using a knife or pizza roller and enjoy!
