Sit back and enjoy the sun with a slice of this fresh and delicious fruit pizza in your hand! It is simple to make and will have both the kids and adults asking for more.

For the dough:

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 14 tablespoons (1 3/4 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs

For the frosting:

  • 12 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 7 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • assorted fresh fruit cut into slices *My favorite combination is kiwi strawberries, blueberries, and mangoes

Instructions:

  • Beat the butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar together in a large bowl until fluffy, 3-5 minutes.
  • Add vanilla and eggs and mix until combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt) and mix until just combined, about 30 seconds. Chill the dough.
  • Preheat oven to 350. Roll chilled dough into one big cookie and place on a round baking stone. Sprinkle with 2-3 tablespoons sugar.
  • Bake for 17-20 minutes. Let cool; chill in fridge.
  • Mix frosting ingredients together and spread on chilled cookie. Chill again to set and thicken the frosting.
  • Top with fresh fruit.
  • Cut into slices and serve!
