Zee fruit and zee pizza meet..

and what a wonderful meeting it is.  I swear this is proof there is no bad way to eat pizza.

We all know we have tried some fruit pizza recipes before.  They are all good.  I mean, I don't even like fruit and they are all good.  So I would imagine to the fruit lover, they are a little piece of heaven.  In fact, I am visiting my son next month and this is a definite MAKE for him, he is a fruit fanatic and he is going to love it.

So, for your information, you know that useless info holder in your brain?  The place where people tell you stuff you don't really give a flip about goes?  Well I have decided I know why I don't like fruit.  Growing up, as I have said before in a family of 12, (10 kids), we didn't eat fruit alot.  It was expensive and we ate what we grew.  It was likely much to expensive for my mom to buy on a regular basis, I am sure we had it semi regularly.  Not like my son who had tons of fruit at his beck and call at all times.   Oh how times change.  Regardless, I have embraced and owned my dislike of fruit and I DO try to hack down some strawberries or apple slices once in awhile.  If I find a soft spot, GRROOOSSSSSS, I am completely done!

This fruit pizza can easily have its fruit changed out.  Next time I am going with strawberries, blueberries and rasberries.   I am not a huge peach fan, in fact I don't like them at all, but they were on sale.  And I know, you know. how THAT goes!  I used some premade cookie dough.  Sue me.  Make your own if you have that kinda time to fill.  Let's move along!

1 roll sugar cookie dough
1 8oz. pkg cream cheese softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp milk
3/4 cup white chocolate chips, divided
1/2 cup mini marshmellows
2 peaches, sliced
1/2 cup blueberries

Preheat oven to temp suggested on cookie dough.  Press out unto a parchment lined pizza pan.  Notice I used foil?  Notice I said use parchment paper?  Yea......exactly. 

Bake for recommended time.  Mine took about 12 minutes.  I undercooked it a couple of minutes because when I sliced the pizza I didn't want it crumbly, I wanted a soft cookie crust!

While it is baking mix together, cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, milk and 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips. Set aside.

When cookie crust is done, take it out of the oven.  Spread mini marshmellows all over the crust, put back in the oven, turn the oven OFF and let sit for 3 minutes.  They will puff up but you can use a spatula and press them down flat when you take it out.  Let cool 5 minutes.  Spread on cream cheese mixture.  Cover entire pizza, leaving a small border.  Arrange fruit however you like or just pile it on!

Melt remaining white choc chips in a bowl and drizzle (or in my case "plop") it ever the top of the pizza.

There you have it.  EASY, quick, and oh so sweet and tasty!  Well, I mean if you like fruit! HA!
