Patriotic fruit pizza

30 May

Our friends had a lovely memorial day barbecue. I offered to make dessert. So this is what I made. It came out pretty good, the cookie part was a little more Cakey than I would have liked… Next time I’ll use a different cookie recipe!

In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar, butter, orange zest and vanilla, mixing until well blended. Add in egg and beat until light and fluffy. Mix in milk and set aside.

Sift together dry ingredients and slowly incorporate into creamed mixture.

Press dough into a round pizza pan coated lightly with cooking spray.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake cookie crust for about 15-20 minutes until light golden brown but not overly crisp. Set aside and allow to cool.
