Fruit Pizza

I just love fruit and fresh fruit is always a tell tale sign to me that spring and good things are just around the corner! I keep thinking if I load my fridge with fresh veggies and fruits that it will bring out the warm weather! So far, it hasn't worked.

Nothing like a refreshing dessert. Fruit pizza has a sweet tender dough. A sugar cookie dough, topped with a smoothe cream cheese tart frosting and the brightness of any fruit you so desire to top. You can bake this on a pizza round or in a 9x13 pan. I also prefer to have my dough a bit on the thicker side, 'cuz you know; that's how I roll but please feel free to make it anyway your little heart desires.

This dessert was made for our March Birthday celebration and it is always a crowd pleaser. Ann Trujillo made this dessert! Gotta love it!

The recipe is from Allrecipes. And also adapted from two peas and their pod
