This is a huge hit in our home. EVERYONE loves this dessert pizza. I have posted this recipe before but wanted to update. It’s that time of year with the farmer’s market and all. A simple and delicious recipe for you to share with your family. Enjoy!
You start with a sugar cookie dough. I happen to make my own and roll it out into a huge sugar cookie. You could also use a premade sugar cookie dough, too.
2 cups (10 ounces) unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
16 tablespoons (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened but still cool
1 cup (7 ounces) granulated sugar
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 large egg
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or spray with non stick cooking spray). I use parchment paper all the time. LOVE it!
2. Using stand up mixer (or you can do by hand or with electric mixer) cream butter, sugar and brown sugar at medium speed. Add egg and vanilla, beat at medium speed until combines. Add dry ingredients and beat at low speed until just combined, scraping down bowl as needed.
3. Take out dough and shape into a ball. Either by hand or using a rolling pin, roll or push out dough into a circular shape (like a pizza) until about 1/2 to 1/4 inch thick. I push out by hand then I top with a piece of wax paper and use the rolling pin to roll out to a 12-14 inch circular shape.
4. Rack should be in middle position. Place cookie sheet in oven and bake for 15-20 minutes. Edges will be golden brown. Remove from oven and set aside.
1 8 ounce package of Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened to room temperature
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Fresh strawberries (sliced), blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, grapes, bananas, kiwi, oranges. Whatever combination of fruit you desire.
Mix the first three ingredients until well combined.
When cookie dough is at room temperature, top with cream cheese mixture. Arrange your fruit on top as you desire. I guarantee you will not have any leftovers with this pizza!!
