Fruit Pizza

This recipe is from Taylor's first Primary teacher Heidi Iordachescu and is easy and addictive to make.  The fruit tricks you into thinking its a healthy dessert but it is perfect for a hot summer day.

Fruit Pizza

1/2 c butter
1/2 c peanut butter
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1 1/4 c flour
1 egg
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla

Mix butter, peanut butter and sugar till light and fluffy.  Beat in the rest of the ingredients.  Spread dough out by hand onto a greased pizza sheet till it is about 1/4 inch thick.  Crimp the edges with your fingers.  Cook at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.  Cool completely.

1 8oz package cream cheese

1/2 c powdered sugar
1 1/2 c cool whip

Beat cream cheese and powdered sugar together till smooth and creamy.  Stir in the cool whip.  Spread over the top of the pizza.

Top with your favorite sliced fruit in whatever pattern you think looks good.  Strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, grapes, peaches, kiwi etc.  If you like melt a cup of milk chocolate chips, stir in a spoonful of nutella if you want and drizzle it over the top of the pizza.

Chill and serve.
