Fruit Pizza Yummy Yummy

Three of my girls have birthdays in June-one at the beginning of the month and two at the end. This past weekend was party central for us as we celebrated all three birthdays.
Last year, we had a beach theme party and they all loved it. This year, they couldn't decide on the same theme with my soon to be 5 year old the biggest waffler-she was changing her mind daily, if not twice a day! So, they all went with what they really wanted and were really happy and that's what matters!
My soon to be 10 year old (yikes, double digits!) wanted chocolate cake with chocolate frosting (more about that cake in another post), my soon to be 5 year old wanted vanilla cake and finally decided on pink frosting-although, she wouldn't have a piece of hers at the party, but had a piece of the chocolate cake and wolfed it down like she hadn't eaten all day! My soon to be 7 year old just couldn't decide what she wanted but knew it had to be something special. I suggested a few things that just didn't fly and then remembering her love of blueberries and strawberries, suggested a fruit pizza-oh yes, score, one for mommy.......she loved the idea.
I've never made one before so we searched online and found a recipe-oh boy, couldn't have been easier, didn't take much time and was delicious! You know how that all rates in my book!

I have to admit...... I used the refrigerated cookie dough.......but I do want to try to make the crust myself soon. The combination of the crust, frosting and fruit was delicious. We even used the extra frosting as a dip with the extra fruit. My daughter arranged all the fruit herself and you can't see it, but the blueberries make a smily face in the middle of the pizza.

Great dessert for any summer parties you might be having or attending!

Hi! I followed you over from SITS! My mom used to make fruit pizza when we were little and it was soooo delicious! She would make the crust using a pastry dough recipe she found in Good Housekeeping.

Happy Birthday to your sweet little girl!
