Dessert Pizza

>> Monday, March 30, 2009

I have had this recipe since I took a cooking class in high school. I have been in love with it forever! I love fruit and you can use anything you want on this and it's just delicious! It's a perfect spring/summer dessert and you can have it any time. It can easily change with the seasonal fruit if you want fresh all the time. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!

Dessert Pizza


¾ cup shortening, part butter (I use ½ cup shortening, ¼ cup butter)

1 c sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp salt

2 eggs

2 ½ cups flour

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

Mix shortening, butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Blend in flour, baking powder and salt. Cover. Chill 1 hour. Pat dough onto cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 12 minutes.


1 pkg. (8 oz) cream cheese

½ cup sugar (I used some powdered sugar as well... just a little)


After crust has cooled, add sugar to cream cheese and blend. Spread over crust. Decorate with fruit as desired.

Fruit ideas:


Grapes, halved




Kiwi fruit

Hi! I've seen this recipe using a roll of store bought sugar cookie dough. Can you use all butter instead of part shortening? Thanks! Linda

I'm sure it would be just fine with all butter. :)
