Egg Shaped Fruit Pizza

I saw a few Egg Shaped Fruit Pizza's online. I decided to make one myself at Easter time. With my own twist of course.

You can use any recipe of sugar cookie dough. I happened to use a family recipe. I added lemon extract instead of vanilla to give it a springy flavor. I thought the lemon favor complimented the fruit on top well. I rolled it out on a floured surface, cut it in the shape of an egg, and had my husband help me put it on a sprayed pan with a few big spatulas. I used the remainder dough to make into a crust.

You bake it just like you would sugar cookies. I think my recipe is 350 degrees for 20 minutes, or until it's slightly browned.

Set out 1 package of cream cheese to soften. Mix the cream cheese (I used the one with 1/3 less fat) with 1/4 cup sugar.

Spread the mixture on the big cookie (once the cookie has cooled). I find that a rubber baby spoon, or small spatula helps spread it on. 

Next add the cut up fruit. This recipe is better in the spring and summer because there are more fruit options. Try to use fruit that has color contrast.

Kids like to help, so let them. I pre-cut some of the fruit to make the process for the kids faster and smoother. Otherwise they get impatient. It's a good idea if you have more then one kid helping to rotate them. Mine tend to fight about how it's going to look, and get in each others way.

You can top with juice concentrate. I skip this step all together. To me it's just more sugar, and if it's not gobbled up, the juice concentrate can make the crust soggy.


It sat out for three hours, and still wasn't bad. This is great for family get gatherings, or potlucks. You can make just a circle, square, or rectangle one. For St. Patty's day I could see a rainbow shaped one.

This is one I made in the past.

If you do in fact have left overs it freezes well.

I have never had a fruit pizza. But then I don't usually mix my fruit with anything else.
