Angie's Dessert Pizza

I don't know anyone who does not like fruit pizza. This dessert can look stunning, or it can look rustic, it all depends on the fruits used and how much time you put into decorating it. Angie likes to use fresh strawberries, bananas, and kiwi, alternating the slices so that you get all the fruit in each piece when cut.

Angie's Dessert Pizza

1- 18 ounce pkg, Refrigerated sugar cookie dough*
1 pkg (8 ounce) cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
Fruits of your choice
Fresh lemon juice, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Press cookie dough evenly into a 12" pizza pan that has been greased. If you do not have a pizza pan, then form into a 12" wheel on a greased baking stone. Use a rolling pin, if need be (place plastic wrap over top of dough in order to keep it from sticking to rolling pin) to form your round. Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes, but do not overbake. Carefully loosen cookie dough from the pan using a knife. Cool completely.
Meanwhile, combine cream cheese and sugar; beat well and set aside. Cut up all fruits that need to be sliced, dipping those fruits that brown easily in the lemon juice before decorating the pie.
Spread the cooled cookie dough evenly with the cream cheese mixture, then top artfully with the fruits. Cover and chill before serving.
*You can make your own cookie dough.
