Hello everyone! Quite a few years ago a friend gave me a recipe for a 'fruit pizza'. It had a Pillsbury sugar cookie dough crust, then I believe the next layer was cream cheese and cool-whip mixed together, maybe some sugar too, then various sliced fruits. To top it off, we took jello and mixed it with something (?) to make it really thick, then we poured it over the top of the 'pizza' and let it cool. It was absolutely delicious!! I have searched all through my recipes and cannot find it. Does anyone out there remember it and have it? It might have been a Pampered Chef recipe, although I searched their website and cannot locate on there either. Can anyone help me out?

Hello and welcome!
Did you check this forum for a recipe? I found at least 2 under Fruit. I am also including one that was sent into the newsletter a few years ago.
Fruit Pizza This is so "yummy!" With all the fresh fruit in season it is fun to make!
1 package (20 ounces) refrigerated sugar cookie dough 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed 2 to 3 kiwifruit, peeled and thinly sliced* 1 to 2 firm bananas, sliced* 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained* 1/2 cup red grape halves (seeded) 1/4 cup sugar 1/4 cup orange juice 2 tablespoons water 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch Pinch of salt.
Pat cookie dough into an ungreased 14-inch pizza pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until browned; cool. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Fold in whipped topping. Spread over crust. Arrange the fruit on top. In a saucepan, bring sugar, orange juice, water, lemon juice, cornstarch and salt to a boil, stirring constantly for 2 minutes or until thickened. Cool; brush over fruit. Chill. Store in refrigerator. YIELD: 16 to 20 servings* Any combination of fruit may be used. Delicious! Makes a stunning presentation.
TIPS: When patting the sugar cookie dough out, if it starts sticking to your hands because it is too warm, place back in the refrigerator for approximately 5 minutes. You may have to do this several times. Any combination of fruit can be used. Any amount of fruit can be used. If using fruit that turns brown, such as bananas, fresh peaches, fresh mangoes, etc. use Ever-Fresh. Ever-Fresh can be bought at the grocery store. Another name for it is: Fresh Fruit. Follow the directions on the container to keep fruit from turning brown. Mix fruit together with your hands to keep from crushing it.
