Excellent recipe. I only made one change based on other reviews. I used 8oz cream cheese and 7 oz of marshmallow fluff for the topping....it was amazing. I baked the cookie on a pizza stone until it was golden brown all over (about 20 minutes). I topped it with the icing and cooled in the fridge until 2 hours before the party. I then topped with fruit and the orange drizzle and cooled for an additional 2 hours. Next time, I would make this the night before and cool it in the fridge, as it was much better the next day. The cookie got very moist and the flavors blended well. I would also use more strawberries and other "firm" fruit such as grapes, blue berries etc.. and stay away from things such as bananas and canned oranges. Great recipe.....thanks!
The sauce overpowered the fresh flavors of the fruit and made it way too sweet. Great without the sauce!
This is the best fruit pizza! I had a friend in college who made fruit pizza with a glaze on top and could never find a recipe similar until now. I made this for a pot luck breakfast and followed all directions. It turned out great. I even made it the night ahead and refrigerated all night. No soggy crust! Don't skip the glaze, though. It makes this pizza stand out from all others. I may double it next time, because I didn't have enought to cover the entire pizza. The taste makes the long preparation time definately worth it! Update: I made this a 2nd time in a 9x13 baking dish. It turned out just the same and was very easy to store in the fridge.
Wonderful recipe! I made it much easier for myself by a couple of changes. I let the cookie dough soften while I prepared the fruit. I didn't bother slicing the cookie dough, I simply pressed it down evenly in a pizza pan. After the cookie crust was baked and cooled, I added the cream cheese mixture and then arranged my fresh fruit on top. I didn't bother with making the glaze although I'm sure it's delicious. I simply melted some apple jelly in the microwave and after cooling it a bit, I brushed in on the fruit. It makes all the fruit shinny and pretty. I packed it in a pizza box and took it to the BBQ and it was (as always) a hit. Thanks Kay for the great recipe!
I have made this a few times, all without the glaze. The last time I made it, I doubled the recipe to make one big probably about 16" pizza and it still came out great. I made the whole thing, fruit included and froze it overnight. It kept very well and started defrosting on my way to a function. It also kept longer sitting out since it started out so cold. I'm sure with the glaze is great too, but I just haven't needed it. Without the glaze, the sweetness is just right if you don't like things really sweet. The sugar cookie balances out the cream cheese/cool whip mixture. This is a great recipe if you're sick of making salads to bring to bbq's...it really makes a great impression. I usually use blueberries, strawberries and kiwi. I have also used pineapple on occasion. Just be careful...it's addicting!
This is a show stopping dessert. Once the first piece was cut, it went in a flash. I used the mixture of 8 oz cream cheese and 7 oz jar of marshmallow cream as others did. The glaze not only adds flavor, it gives it the finishing touch that you would expect if you purchased this from a gourmet shop. I baked the dough about 15 minutes, and will increase that the next time. The crust softens up once the cream and fruit sit on it for a while - so I think it might be better to over bake it a little. I love this dessert, and so does my office!
Ok, I whipped my topping so it made it super thick, but I wanted the lumps out! That's ok, because it was so good! And I like this topping better than my personal recipe because the fruit doesn't slide off! Wasn't too crazy about the orange sauce, you can just use orange juice concentrate instead - plus its easier. Great recipe though! :) -- Oh, if you buy the sugar cookie dough, slice them like you were going to make the cookies and then use wax paper to smoosh it down into your pan
The mixture of the Cool Whip and cream cheese was a little bland, so I added about 3/4C of sifted powdered sugar. This made the sauce a little thicker, and tasted sweeter. Great recipe!
