Fruit Pizza

Something for those of you who don’t get your 3-4 servings of fruits on a daily basis.

1 tube refrigerated sugar cookie dough

1 cup sugar, divided

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1/2 cup orange juice

1/4 cup lemon juice

1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened

1 tablespoon milk

1 teaspoon grated orange peel

2/3 cup heavy whipping cream

1 1/2 cups halved fresh strawberries (you need to go fresh)

1 medium peach, sliced thin

1 small banana, sliced thin

1 small apple, sliced thin

1/2 cup fresh blueberries

Let dough stand at room temperature for 5-10 minutes to soften.  Press onto an ungreased 14 inch pizza pan.  Bake at 350 for 13-15 minutes.  Cool on rack.

In a small saucepan, combine 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch and juices.  Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.  Remove from the heat.  Set aside to cool

In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, milk, orange peel and remaining sugar until blended.  In a small mixing bowl, beat cream until soft peaks form; fold into cream cheese mix.  Spread on crust.  Arrange fruit.  Spread with reserved glaze.  Refrigerate until chilled.
