Purchased sugar cookie dough stands in as the pizza crust for this dessert, and cream cheese, assorted fresh fruit and chopped almonds are the toppings. This recipe includes amaretto, which can be replaced with milk and almond extract to make the dessert more kid-friendly.


  • 1 16 - 18 - ounce roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 1 8 - ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup amaretto*
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped almonds, toasted
  • 2 cups assorted fresh fruit, such as halved green and/or red grapes, sliced strawberries, sliced mango, raspberries, sliced peaches, sliced kiwifruit, and/or sliced or chopped melon
  • 2 tablespoons honey (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. For crust, line a 12-inch pizza pan with foil. Pat cookie dough evenly onto foil-lined pan. Build up edges slightly. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until edges are light brown and center appears set. Cool in pan on wire rack.
  2. Invert cooled crust onto baking sheet; remove foil. Place serving platter over inverted crust; invert platter and crust together.
  3. In a medium bowl beat cream cheese, amaretto, and brown sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Stir in the almonds. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over top of the sugar cookie crust, leaving a 1-inch border around the edges uncovered. Top with assorted fresh fruit. If desired, drizzle with honey.


  • *Tip: If desired, substitute 1/4 cup milk and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract for the amaretto.
