Butterfly Fruit Pizza
If you are a regular reader, you know I’ve been trying out different fruit pizza recipes. To make my Beach Ball Fruit Pizza, I used Pillsbury Sugar Cookie ready made dough, baked it, and topped it with a lemon cheesecake filling. It is quite sweet and tasty and still my favorite recipe. I decided to try a crust recipe from scratch when I made the Swirly Lollipop Fruit Pizzas and hated it, but really liked the cheesecake topping made with cream cheese, sugar, and whipped topping. This time, I used the sugar cookie recipe from Meaghan of the Decorated Cookie for the crust and topped it with Philadelphia Strawberry Cream Cheese. This combination is a nice option if you prefer a fruit pizza that isn’t very sweet. It works nicely for breakfast. This crust would be really nice frosted with either of the previously made cheesecake toppings. Any way you make the pizza, it is sure to be a visually pleasing dessert.Butterfly Fruit Pizza (serves 8-12)
