Fruit Pizza

Fruit pizza is one of the most delicious desserts out there - it is my most favorite summertime dessert when it's topped with yummy fresh fruit!!  We had it for dessert on Father's Day, but since it's such a favorite around here, I thought I'd post a pic with the recipe (the pic was from a previous time I made it):


1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (8-oz) package cream cheese
1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Assorted fresh fruit

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and 3/4 cup sugar until smooth. Mix in egg. combine the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until just blended. Press dough into an ungreased pizza pan. 
Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool. 
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla until light. Spread on cooled crust. 
Arrange desired fruit on top of filling, and chill. 

NOTE:  I used low-fat cream cheese and I thought it still tasted great...I may try fat-free cream cheese next time to save even more calories!!

Anyways...had to share one of my favorite dessert recipes - I wish I could eat this every day!!
