Pizza Anyone?

Probably didn't fool any of you smart "cookies" out there with my April Fool's pizza pie, but thought I would share it anyways. :-) I'm bringing it to work in the morning. Hey, who doesn't like pizza for breakfast???

Fruit Pizza
(Not sure where this originally came from, my family has been making a version of it for years)

1 roll of sugar cookie dough
1 8 oz cream cheese
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup sugar
Fruit of choice
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup orange juice

Press dough over a pizza pan or any other shallow dish. Bake at 350° for 12-15 mins until light brown. Let cool. Beat cream cheese, vanilla and 1/3 cup sugar. Spread over cooked, cooled dough. Put fruit on top of cream cheese arrange in a pretty pattern (or spread around like pizza ingredients like mine). Mix cornstarch, 2/3 cup sugar, salt & orange juice in pan. Boil for 1 minute. Pour over fruit and let cool.

Watch out for those April Fool's jokes!

Haven't had a fruit pizza for a long time - yours looks fantastic!
I'm sure your fellow workers will appreciate the thought and devour it in no time!

Pizza looks delicious! Bet the folks at your old place will be missing the treats, but the new folks are very lucky indeed!

Suzy, what a fun treat for your co-workers. At a quick glance it does look like pizza (at least on my small computer screen). I've made lots of fruit cookies pizzas over the years, and yours certainly looks tasty.

It looks delicious! I was thinking, uh uh, I don't like olives, then read it was fruit! :)

Fruit pizza is very popular at my extended family gatherings with or sometimes without the glaze. We eat veggie pizza too :)

Yours turned out beautifully and your new coworkers are very lucky to have you :)
