Yummy Fruit Pizza

Oh my goodness, I LOVE this dessert!!! I've never been much of a dessert person until I got pregnant with Kai. I thought it was just a craving that would go away once he was born, but it didn't. And, I can't say I'm to sad about that either. I mean, yes it would be nice to once again not like anything sweet. But I am so glad I do because I was REALLY missing out before :).

I've made this fruit pizza twice, most recently for my friend Kim's birthday. She liked it, and I liked it, and all the other girls liked it... so I thought I'd share it with you.

This recipe is from the Simple & Delicious Magazine May/June 2008

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 (8oz) cream cheese softened
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
fruit of your choice- I like strawberries, bananas, peaches, blueberries

*Let dough stand at room temp for 10 min. Press onto ungreased 14in pizza pan. Bake at 350 for 15 min or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack.
*In a small saucepan combine 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch and juices. Bring to boil, cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat: set aside to cool.
*In a large mixing 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 mixture. Spread over crust. Arrange fruit over filling; spread reserved glaze. Refrigerate until chilled.
