An excellent combination of cookie dough crust, cream cheese filling, and, if you like, fruit topping. Use an assortment of fresh fruit such as bananas, peaches, blueberries, kiwi, pineapple, and strawberries. Let your fruit drain in a colander for quite a while before adding it to the pizza. Otherwise you will end up with soggy crust.
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
1/2 cup white sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and 3/4 cup sugar until smooth. Mix in egg and combine the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until just blended. Press dough into an un-greased pizza pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla until light. Spread on cooled crust.
Arrange desired fruit on top of filling, and chill.
