Whether prepped for a Fourth of July celebration or served at a late-summer poolside party, this fruit pizza, with its sugar cookie crust, is sure to be the highlight of any tabletop feast.
1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Form the cookie dough into a large ball, then roll out into a flat circle on a pizza pan. It will expand, so make the crust slightly smaller in diameter than your pizza pan.
2. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the crust turns slightly golden.
3. While the cookie crust is baking, whip the cream cheese for 2-3 minutes on high until it is smooth. In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream until it becomes stiff and peaks form. Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese and add in the powdered sugar and lemon zest. Mix well until it’s smooth and creamy. Cover and let chill in the refrigerator.
4. Remove the cookie crust from the oven and let it cool for 15 minutes. Once cool, spread the icing over the entire crust. Decorate the pizza with whatever design you desire.
