We just finished up the Girl’s week of Ag Adventure Camp and one of the foods they made was Fruit Pizza. Not only was this a hit for the girls, it also got rave reviews from the volunteer staff. The Fruit Pizza boasts a sweet, crumbly crust, a slightly-sweet, creamy filling and is topped with the freshest fruits of the season. Since we live on the Central Coast Strawberries are a must!
The recipe is super easy – so easy we made it in a barn!
Ag Adventure Fruit Pizza
From the Kitchen of: Connie Grieb Willems Servings: 16
1 18 oz package refrigerated sugar cookie dough, softened
1 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
4 tablespoon powdered sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup peach preserves
1 cup fresh strawberries, stemmed and sliced
2 kiwifruit, peeled and sliced
2 peaches, pitted, peeled and sliced
Crust: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Shape cookie dough into ball and place dough in center of round stone or pizza pan. Using lightly-floured rolling pin, roll out dough to 12-inch circle or fill a rectangle pan, about ¼ inch thick. Bake 18-20 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool Completely
Filling: Combine cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla in small bowl; mix well. Spread mixture evenly onto top of cookie crust then top with preserve.
Topping: Remove stems and slice strawberries (an egg slicer works well). Peel and slice peaches and kiwi fruit, or your favorite fruits and arrange over preserves to cover entire crust. Pipe whipped cream topping around edge of fruit pizza. Cut into slices with a pizza cutter.
