Fruit Pizza

Fruit Pizza

Serves 8 as a dessert

Level of difficulty: Easy

This is a fun dessert to make with the kids - they have a ball arranging the fruit on top! Enjoy this with our abundantly fruity State Lane Orange Muscat!

Ingredients:
1 package of sugar cookie dough
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
8 oz cream cheese, softened
(1) large can chunk pineapple
Fresh strawberries, sliced
3 kiwis, sliced
Fresh berries: blackberries, blueberries, or raspberries
½ cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup orange juice
3/4 cup lemon juice
½ cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch

Directions:
To make the crust: press sugar cookie dough into a 15” pizza pan. Bake according to package directions. Remove from oven and let cool completely.

In a small bowl, mix sugar, vanilla, and cream cheese until smooth. Spread on cooled cookie crust. Layer fresh fruit on cream cheese in any order you like.

In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, cook pineapple, orange, and lemon juice with ½ cup sugar and cornstarch until thick and clear, stirring constantly. Pour over fruit and refrigerate. Slice and serve.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
