I’m not sure if you have a treat planned out to bring to today’s BBQ. But if you don’t. And you want to make friends. This is the dessert to do it.


1 18 oz pkg refrigerated cookie dough (Pillsbury for the win!)

1 8 oz pkg cream cheese

1 8 oz pkg Cool Whip

2 c sliced strawberries

1 c blueberries

1/2 c sliced kiwi

1/2 c white sugar

1/8 tsp salt

1 Tbsp corn starch

1/2 c orange juice

2 Tbsp lemon juice

1/4 c water

Roll out your cookie dough into a thin pizza shape. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 10 minutes. Let cool completely. Mix cream cheese and cool whip until smooth and spread over cookie crust. Slice up fruit and place all over pizza.

To make the glaze, combine sugar, salt, corn starch, orange juice, lemon juice and water in a sauce pan. Cook and stir over medium heat. Bring to a boil, and cook for 1 or 2 minutes, until it has thickened. Remove from heat. Allow it to cool, but not set up. Spoon over fruit. Chill for at least two hours, then cut into wedges and serve.

I promise. The friends. They will flock to you after this.

    My dad used to make fruit pizzas for my brother and I when we were little and they were so delicious! I had completely forgotten about that until I saw this post. Thanks for the recipe, Lexy.
