Fruit Pizza

  • 1 package refrigerated cookie dough 
  • 1 package (8oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/8 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup whipping cream 
  • 1 Tbsp of instant pudding (optional)
  • 12-16 strawberries, sliced or cut in half
  • 1 can (11oz) mandarin oranges, well drained
  • a square of dark chocolate or some semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp oil
Preheat oven to 450F. Shape cookie dough into a ball, place on a pizza sheet or a baking stone and roll into a large (about 12") circle. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until edges are set. Do not overbake! The cookie should still be soft! Remove from oven, and cool 10 minutes before moving to a platter.
Combine cream cheese and sugar in a small bowl. Mix well. Whip the cream with instant pudding, and gently fold into cream cheese mixture. Spread the mixture over the cookie.
Arrange fruit over the cream cheese mixture. Place chocolate and oil in a small dish, and microwave for about 30 seconds or until melted. Stir well and drizzle over fruit. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes before serving.

P.S. I made this "pizza" twice, and it was a hit both times. The original recipe asked for 1/4 of powdered sugar, but that was way too sweet for us. I don't really measure sugar for this recipe, I just add it a little at a time and taste for sweetness.

P.P.S. The recipe was adapted from "Fruit-Topped Triple Chocolate Pizza" recipe from The Pampered Chef recipe book.
