This easy fruit pizza makes the perfect summer dessert and is a hit with the family! It's has a sugar cookie crust, a cream cheese spread and loads of sliced fresh fruit. Did I mention how pretty it is?
Easy Fruit Pizza
OXO sent me a pretty sweet mandoline to try out and share with all of you. It's still way too early for my veggies to be ready, but I did happen to have some fruit on hand. I see these easy fruit pizzas on pinterest floating around every summer and thought I would take a stab at making one myself with my new gadget.
This mandoline is pretty amazing. I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but there's an option to make waffle fries! I absolutely love waffle fries sooo that will be happening soon. There are 17 slice thicknesses, a thin julienne, french fry, and crinkle option too and they are all built into the thing. I am so pumped up to play with this more, especially after my garden actually produces some veggies.
I have been so incredibly busy lately that I can barely keep my thoughts straight. I went to my son's luau/kindergarten graduation Friday where I had to join my son in a hula dance. I have serious anxiety about just being in large crowds, can you imagine standing in front of them and trying to learn a dance. The things that I do for this child of mine. He even turned around and told me I was doing an okay job. haha
I really like the cream cheese filling that is sandwiched between the fruit and cookie base. I added lemon zest, lemon juice and whipped it up with some heavy cream. The lemon added just the right amount of zing and compliments the fresh fruit on top.
