Fruit Pizza

This is a beautiful tasty treat that will have your guests and family asking for more... AND the recipe.
This recipe can easily be doubled and can be fun for theme parties. For Christmas, use red and green fruit, for July 4th, red and blue. You can also use star fruit for something different.

Fruit Pizza

1 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 large egg or 2 small (if doubling recipe use 3 eggs)
1/2 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract

2 cups whipped cream
4 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Optional - 4 teaspoons of Wildtree's very berry cheesecake blend

Your choice entirely! This one has kiwi, strawberries and blueberries. Use your creativity and imagination. We also love peaches, mango, papaya, and kiwi for the fruit. Mandarin oranges, pears, pineapple chucks or slices and halved grapes are also yummy. (Frozen blueberries are not recommended.)

Optional - Glaze: 
The pizza above does not have the glaze on it.
Juice drained from mandarin oranges plus enough water added to ale 1 1/4 cup liquid. (Or you could just use orange juice mixed with water.)
1 1/4 Tablespoon cornstarch
sugar to taste

Method: Mix together the ingredients for the dough. Roll out into a jelly roll pan or on a large round pizza stone. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-17 minutes or until slightly golden. Do not overbake.

Cool the crust

Mix together filling ingredients and spread on cooled crust.

Top with sliced fruit.

For glaze, heat the mandarin orange juice, cornstarch and sugar in a saucepan. Heat until thickened. Cool. Pour over sliced fruit.
