Colts Fruit Pizza

Back to Desserts

from Indianapolis Tailgater Tom N.

A fruit pizza is made of a cookie dough crust, cream cheese filling and fruit toppings.

1/2 cup softened butter
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 eight ounce package of cream cheese
1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Your favorite fruit topping

First: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Second: mix in a large bowl until smooth the1/2 cup softened butter and the 3/4 cup white sugar

Third: mix in 1 egg.

Fourth: Combine the above with 1 1/4 cups flour, 1 teaspoon cream of tartar, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Blend all ingredients in bowl.

Fifth: Press the dough you just made onto an ungreased pizza pan or cookie sheet in whatever shape or configuration you want. We prefer footballs, Colts horseshoes, and goal posts.

Sixth: Bake in the preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown. Let crust cool after baking. (If you do not want to make your own crust, you can use premade sugar cookie cookie dough.)

Seventh: While crust is baking, in large bowl beat 1 eight ounce package of cream cheese, 1/2 cup white sugar and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract. Spread mix on the cooled crust.

Eighth: Arrange your favorite fruit topping on top and chill until served. We are partial to strawberries, raspberries, pineapple, kiwi and blueberries. You can use whatever fruit you wish. Use the fruit to make pictures or spell sayings such as our "Go Colts" in blueberries.

There it is!
