Fruit Pizza

This was a very simple delicious pretty dessert. It does take some time to make in the sense that takes a bit to cut the apples ;) You can use any type of fruit. This is what is from the book, but when some fruits aren't in season it makes for even more fun to try different ones.

Fruit Pizza

1 roll sugar cookie dough
1 cup sugar, divided
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 cups halved fresh strawberries
1 medium peach, thinly sliced
1 small banana, sliced
1 small apple, thinly sliced
1/2 cup fresh blueberries

Let dough stand at room temperature for 5-10 minutes to soften. Press onto an un-greased 14-in. pizza pan. Bake at 350° for 15-18 minutes or until deep golden brown. Cool. 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 bowl, beat cream until soft peaks form; fold into cream cheese mixture. Spread over crust. Arrange fruit over filling; spread with reserved glaze. Refrigerate until chilled.
