     One of my favorite things to enjoy at picnics in the summer is fruit pizza.  It is cold, sweet, and refreshing.  I love that it can be topped with all different types of fruits.  I’ve only ever seen it made with refrigerated sugar cookie dough, but I wanted to make my own sugar cookie crust.

     This fruit pizza was easy to make.  I baked up a simple sugar cookie dough then topped it with the sweet, creamy, cream cheese layer, then topped it off with blueberries, strawberries, and peaches.  It was fresh and tasty.  I will be making this often this summer.
