Fruit Pizza

This is a super easy version of fruit pizza. I'm not super excited about the cream cheese part, but it's not bad and I seem to always have the ingredients on hand. I usually like kiwi, strawberries, and bananas for toppings. Raspberries and blueberries are great when they're in season and not too expensive.

Fruit Pizza--Ready in 1 hour'ish

1/2 c. butter, softened
3/4 c. white sugar
1 egg
1 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 t. cream of tartar
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1 (8 oz) pkg. cream cheese
1/2 c. white sugar
2 t. vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter & 3/4 c. 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.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes OR until lightly browned. Cool.
4. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with 1/2 c. sugar and vanilla until light. Spread on cooled crust.
5. Arrange desired fruit on top of filling, and chill.
