My granddaughter has asked for this recipe to be posted….So here is is Cheyenne! Luv ya lots! It seems like we exchange quite a few recipes at our church functions doesn’t it? That is the origin of this recipe…given to me about 33 years ago. (thanks Jan) It has been around a long time and has many variations, but this is the one my granddaughter wants.
A pizza shaped delicacy of fruit and cookie crust...soooooo good!

- 1 - 18 ounce package of Pillsbury refrigerated slice and bake sugar cookies.
- 1 - 8 ounce package of softened (room temperature) cream cheese
- 1/3 cup of sugar
- 3 large bananas
- 1 - 16 ounce can of pineapple slices
- 1 small can of mandarin oranges drained
- 1 package of fresh or frozen whole strawberries
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- Preheat oven to 375.
- Grease a medium sized pizza pan.
- Slice cookie dough into thin slices and place onto pizza pan.
- Overlap but don't worry if the slices don't touch completely...because you are going to pat down the completed slices in the pan to form a flat crust.
- Bake 12 minutes and cool.
- Mix the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until creamy and spread on the crust.
- Decorate the pizza with any desired fruit...by placing on the cream cheese mixture.
- See Below suggestions for the fruit.
- I use the pineapple slices in a circle with one slice in the middle of the pizza. I slice the bananas and place them all around the edge of the crust. I place a whole strawberry in the center of each pineapple slice, but you can slice the berries and arrange how you please. I place the mandarin orange slices in between each pineapple slice and along the edge of the banana slices. I have used blueberries, sliced kiwi and peaches but my family prefers the combination of the strawberries, pineapple, bananas and orange slices. What can I say? They are set in their ways...I wonder where they acquired that trait? 🙂 There is a glaze recipe that can be poured or drizzled over the top of the fruit, but since it is usually the red colored juices from the strawberries and the oranges it tends to "muddle" up the brightness of the pizza. Did I just make up that word for this description? I told you I tend to make up words...haha! I have used a pic from one of the twins' version of my fruit pizza as well as other pics to show all the variations of fruit combinations.
- Make it fun and make it what you want it to be!
