Fruit Pizza

I love to cook and I also love making fun desserts. Usually I don't have that much time to spend making things but every once and a while I can make something really fun. A few years ago I made a birthday dinner for my brother Roger. His wife was out of town so I wanted him to have a really fun birthday. For dessert I made a fruit pizza. It is a perfect dessert for summer. You can use any fruit you want to. I used kiwi, blueberries, raspberries, and peaches. You make the crust out of sugar cookie dough and then the sauce is a cream cheese frosting. My sugar cookie dough and cream cheese frosting recipes are below. If you want to make this really fast just buy some already made sugar cookie dough and a container of frosting from the store. Enjoy your SUMMER!
