Ingredients

Sugar Cookie Pizza Crust

  • 1 cup Salted butter softened
  • 1 1/2 cups Powdered sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 3 teaspoons Vanilla extract
  • 3 cups Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking powder

Fruit Pizza

  • 4 ounces Cream cheese softened
  • 1 ½ cups Powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 pint Strawberries thinly sliced
  • 1 cup Blueberries

Instructions

Sugar Cookie Pizza Crust

  • In the bowl of a mixer add the softened butter and the powdered sugar. Cream together until fully mixed. Note: I use salted butter for this recipe and therefore I don’t add any additional salt. If you use unsalted butter you’ll want to add ¼ teaspoon of salt.
  • Add the egg and vanilla to the butter mixture and continue to mix until they are fully incorporated.
  • In a medium bowl combine the flour and baking powder and whisk together.
  • A cup at a time add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, continue mixing until the dough begins to come together and pull away from the sides of the bowl.
  • Remove the dough from the bowl and place on a floured surface. Roll into a large sheet ¼ inch thick.
  • Using a 9 inch cake pan and a knife cut out a 9 inch circle. Do this by placing the cake pan on the dough (lightly don’t press down), and trace around the bottom with your knife..
  • Gently lift the cut cookie dough and place it on a lined baking sheet. I use parchment paper, you can also use a silpat mat.
  • Bake for 7-8 minutes, or until the edges begin to turn a light brown. Remove from the oven and let cool for 3-4 minutes then move to a baking rack to cool completely.
  • This recipe makes 2 9-inch fruit pizzas so you will repeat the process by pressing the leftover dough back together, rolling it out, cutting it, and baking.

Fruit Pizza

  • In the bowl of a mixer combine softened cream cheese and powdered sugar. Whisk together until fully mixed. Add vanilla and continue whisking until the frosting is smooth and creamy.
  • Spread cream cheese frosting over completely cooled sugar cookie crust. This doesn’t need to be super thick so you’ll need between 2 tablespoons and ¼ cup of frosting.
  • Arrange your fruit on top of the frosting. To make my design I arrange my sliced strawberries in overlapping, concentric circles with the point of the slices facing out. Then I filled in the spaces with whole blueberries.
  • Cut and serve.

Notes

Note: This recipe makes 2 9-inch fruit pizzas (with some dough leftover).  If you only want to make 1 9-inch pizza you can wrap the dough in plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag before storing in the freezer for up to 3 months, or storing in the refrigerator for 1 week.
