1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened

  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 can (10.75 oz) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 cup fresh fruit (sliced strawberries, blueberries, bananas, kiwi, etc.)
  • 1/4 cup glaze (optional, for drizzling)

  • Directions:

    1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
    2. In a medium bowl, cream together the softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth and spreadable.
    3. Unroll the crescent roll dough and separate the triangles. Gently press the dough triangles onto the prepared baking sheet, forming a large circle or square, depending on your preference. Pinch the seams together to create a crust.
    4. Spread the softened cream cheese mixture evenly over the crescent roll dough base.
    5. Arrange your favorite sliced fruits on top of the cream cheese layer. Get creative! Use a variety of colors and textures for a visually stunning pizza.
    6. Bake the fruit pizza for 12-15 minutes, or until the crescent roll crust is golden brown.
    7. Let the pizza cool slightly before slicing and serving.
    8. For an extra touch of sweetness, drizzle the cooled pizza with your favorite glaze (optional).

    FAQs:

    1. Can I use a different type of crust?

    Absolutely! You can substitute the crescent roll dough for pre-made pizza dough, puff pastry, or even a store-bought sugar cookie crust.

    2. What other fruits can I use?

    The possibilities are endless! Consider using seasonal fruits like mangoes, peaches, or grapes. You can also add a touch of tartness with raspberries, cranberries, or pomegranate seeds.

    3. Do I have to use glaze?

    The glaze is entirely optional. The fruit pizza is delicious on its own, but the glaze adds a nice touch of sweetness and shine. You can use store-bought glaze, powdered sugar icing, or even a simple honey drizzle.

    Yes, you can! Assemble the pizza completely and store it in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. However, the crust may soften slightly.
