Fruit Pizza

Serves: 8 to 10
Hands On Time: 
Total Time: 


1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 (12-ounce) bag white choclate chips (melted with double boiler, cooled but not solid)
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup heavy cream
Small, colorful fruit, such as blueberries, blackberries, sliced strawberries and drained canned mandarin orange slices
Orange marmalade
Water, as needed


Heat the oven to 350 degrees. 

In a large bowl, beat together the butter and powdered sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add the flour and, on low speed, beat until combined. Spread the dough out into an even layer in a tart pan or a parchment-lined pizza pan. Bake until golden brown, about 25 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.

Meanwhile, place the white chocolate in a medium bowl and set over a small saucepan of simmering water. Let the chocolate melt slowly, stirring as needed. Once melted, transfer to a large bowl. 

Add the cream cheese and heavy cream and beat with the electric mixer until smooth. Spread in an even layer over the cooled crust.

Arrange the fruit in a decorative pattern over the white chocolate frosting.

In a small bowl, whisk together a tablespoon or two of the marmalade with just enough water to become spreadable. Brush over the fruit and frosting to form a glossy coat. Serve.
