Polish Approved – Fruit Pizza

I’m pretty excited about this recipe. Fruit + Pizza = HEALTHY HEAVEN? Sure! Why not. Anyway, I saw this recipe and had to share it. It’s Pioneer Woman, of course. She makes her dough from scratch but I think you could easily just buy a roll of dough and use it instead of taking the steps to make homemade dough — some people just don’t have the time for all of that! This will be a great dessert to take to a brunch or a lunch! This would also make a beautiful dessert to serve at a Bridal or Baby shower! Check it out –

TPW_9881My sister-in-law Missy first introduced me to the concept of fruit pizza years and years ago, and here’s how: she brought one to my house and I proceeded to eat the whole thing. But it was small. And I was nursing. My mammary glands made me do it.

I whipped up a whopper of a fruit pizza a couple of weeks ago using my good ol’ standby sugar cookie recipe…and it was so darn good in such a naughty, naughty way. Feel free to halve the recipe below and press into a smaller pan, or just split the full recipe in half and roll out two thinner pizzas.

This is one of those fun, throw-together treats that’s perfect for everything from a slumber party to a baby shower. Change up the fruit you use, the configuration of the design…just have fun with it, man!

Sorry I said mammary glands. It won’t happen again. Until tomorrow.
TPW_9569The Cast of Characters: my sugar cookie dough (recipe below), marshmallow creme, cream cheese, peaches, kiwi, blueberries…and whatever other fruit you’d like!

TPW_9671Now, you could divide the dough in half, then roll out each half into thin, round pizzas.

Or you could do what I done did…

TPW_9672And press the whole quantity of dough into a sheet pan.

TPW_9677I love this pebbly texture. Rustic, man.

TPW_9694Then just throw it in the oven…

TPW_9708And bake it till it’s golden brown but not very crisp. This took about fifteen minutes, but if you go with rolling out two halves, they’ll probably take a little less time than that.

Then just let the crust cool completely.

And then…brace yourselves.

TPW_9834Throw some cream cheese into the bowl of an electric mixer.

TPW_9835Add a couple o’ jugs of marshmallow creme.

I vanted to leek dees spatula.

So I deet.

TPW_9858Next, just whip the whole thing together until it turns into something indescribable. You’ll taste it. You’ll want to think you know what it is. But unless you saw yourself putting the ingredients into the bowl, you really won’t know exactly what it is.

So I’ll just tell you. What it is…is a splendid, creamy, slightly glossy concoction that will make your skirt fly up unless you’re a boy. And then whatever the counterpart is to making your skirt fly up will happen.

And when it does, will you tell me what that is? I haven’t yet been able to figure it out.

TPW_9865So what you do next is, you slice up a bunch of fruit: peaches, kiwi, and blueberries are good. You can also do pears, raspberries, or any fruit that floats your boat.

TPW_9868Start throwing the fluffy stuff on the crust…

TPW_9871Then spread it all over the surface of the crust.

Geez Louise. Look at that stuff.

TPW_9877Keep going until it’s all covered except for a rim around the edge. Kinda like a pizza.

And then…

And then…


TPW_9881You do this.

TPW_9894Do whatever design you like! I felt like a random mix, but you can do color coordinated rows so that it looks more like a tart if you’d like.

TPW_9898Then just cut it into pieces and serve away! The crust turned out nice—it was definitely on the thick/substantial side, so it was sort of like eating a cookie-cake.

Fruit pizzas are lots of fun. Use this basic recipe to make large ones, or a bunch of individual, small ones. Change up the fruit! If you do a bunch of smaller pizzas, do single varieties: all kiwi for some, all blueberry for others. That’d make a lovely presentation.

But most of all, enjoy!

And be sure to use any leftover white fluffy stuff as a fruit dip.

We hope you make this, eat it and enjoy it! Have a great Thursday!
