Summer Fruit Pizza
What's your Take?

Hold the tomato sauce and mozzarella! Here's a colorful twist on pizza pie. Homemade or prepared pizza crust is baked to a golden crisp, iced with sweet, orange-flavored cream cheese frosting, and topped with each family member's favorite fresh fruit.

What you'll need

  • CRUST:
  • 1 pound purchased pizza dough, or your favorite homemade recipe
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 (8-ounce) package low-fat cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Assorted fruit (we used blueberries, banana slices, mandarin orange sections, seedless grapes, kiwi fruit slices, and strawberry halves)

How to make it

  1. Heat the oven to 400ยบ.

  2. Spread the dough in an ungreased 12-inch pizza pan. Brush on the butter and sprinkle on the 2 tablespoons of sugar. Bake the crust until it's golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool the crust on a wire rack.

  3. In a medium-size bowl, combine the frosting ingredients with a rubber spatula. Stir until smooth.

  4. Spread the frosting over the cooled crust. Gently press in the fruit. Serves 12.
