Strawberry Kiwi Pizza

Hope everyone had a wonderful and fun 4th of July!  Today I'm sharing a recipe for a fun take on a fruit pizza.  This fruit pizza makes a delightful addition to a summer picnic or potluck.

I chose strawberry and kiwi for this pizza because the colors are so vibrant and fun.  But, blueberries, peaches, pineapple, apples, grapes, raspberries, mango and other yummy fruits are a perfect fit for this pizza.  

Strawberry Kiwi Pizza

1 1/2 C flour
1 C powdered sugar
3/4 C butter {I use less}

Cream Cheese Layer
8oz cream cheese, softened
2-3 T butter, softened
~1/2 C powdered sugar
1 T milk
1 tsp. vanilla

Strawberries, sliced
Kiwi, sliced

First, start by making the crust.  To do so, melt the butter in a small bowl.

Add in powdered sugar and flour.

Mix until crumbly.

Pour the crumbs into a lightly greased cookie sheet.

Using your hand, press the dough into a solid layer.

Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes until crust is lightly browned.

Allow the crust to cool. Meanwhile, whip together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, butter, milk and vanilla.  Beat until light and fluffy.

Slice up the fruit into thin slices.

Then, spread the cream cheese over the cookie base.

Arrange the fruit over the frosting layer.

I started with "flowers".

I spaced three large flowers across the cookie.

I added a boarder of strawberries and kiwi's around the outside.

Then, I filled the blank places in with diced pieces of fruit.

Cover and chill until ready to serve.

Slice into small pieces and serve.
