Even though Labor Day weekend generally signifies the end of summer, you can hold onto it a little longer with this delicious fruit pizza. Any kind of fruit works: raspberries, blackberries, kiwi or whatever sounds good to you!
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 3/8 cups cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 (12 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
2 cups fresh blueberries
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 12-inch pizza pan.
First make the crust. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, butter and sugar. Once combined, the dough should be dry. Spread the dough into the pizza pan and bake for 10 minutes until brown. Allow the crust to cool on a wire rack.
Next make the filling. In another large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until fluffy. Next fold in the whipped topping and spread the mixture onto cooled crust. Top your creation with fruit of your choice.
