To make a simple fruit pizza, spread packaged sugar cookie dough on a greased pizza pan, and bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until the cookie is golden. Spread sweetened cream cheese over the cooled crust. Top the cream cheese with sliced fruit pieces. Dust the top of the fruit pizza with powdered sugar if desired.
Packaged sugar cookie dough makes the fruit pizza recipe simple, but you can make your own sugar cookie dough from scratch if you prefer. Spread the dough to about 1/4-inch thick in an even layer. For individual fruit pizzas, bake individual cookies on a baking sheet. Cool the cookies completely before making the fruit pizza so the cream cheese doesn't melt.
To make the cream cheese sauce for the fruit pizzas, mix 8 ounces of softened cream cheese with 1/2 cup of granulated sugar. Adjust the amount of sugar as desired to reach the sweetness you prefer. When spreading the cream cheese over the cookie crust, leave some space around the edge without the frosting.
Berries, kiwi slices and mandarin oranges work well on fruit pizzas. Wash and dry the fruit before putting it on the pizza. Leave small berries whole. Cut larger berries such as strawberries into slices or halves. Arrange the fruit on top of the cream cheese. Cut the pizza into wedges to serve.
