fruit pizza

I made this for Memorial Day and it seemed to be a big hit. It's super easy!

1 (18-oz.) roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 (8-oz.) pkg. cream cheese
1/4 sugar (I used powdered sugar)
1 (8-oz.) container Cool Whip
fruit of your choosing (I used strawberries, nectarines, kiwi, and blueberries)

1. Preheat oven to 350. Press cookie dough onto bottom and up sides of an 11-inch tart pan with removable bottom or 12-inch pizza pan. Bake for 11-15 minutes or until golden brown. Set aside to cool.

2. In mixing bowl beat cream cheese and sugar until cheese is softened. Gently stir in whipped topping until combined. Spread in baked tart shell. Chill for 2 hours.

3. To serve, arrange fruit over cheese layer. Serve immediately or cover and chill for up to 3 hours. Cut into wedges to serve.
