Fruit Pizza – Top Chef Lab

You are Top Chef

You are Top Chef

Today was an amazing lab.  It was as if every group was competing for Top Chef.  First block you could hear a pin drop as they were hovered over their fruit precisely cutting  to make an intricate design.  Most all of the groups worked to their full potential . You can see this when viewing  the photos.  FANTASTIC!!!

 I think this recipe or one close to it  is posted everywhere.  In class yesterday we were trying  to find ideas for putting the pizza together and there were hundreds of them.  Some good and some very bad.  I am still trying to wrap my brain around the “Kitty Litter Cake”!  To each his own.

Here are the instructions for putting the work of art together.

Crust –  Slice 1 roll of Pillsbury Sugar Cookie dough into 1/4 in. slices.  Use all the dough.  Place into a well greased pizza pan.  DO NOT mash to cover the pan.  As the dough rises in the oven it will cover the pan.  Bake at 350- 375 degrees for 15 – 20 min. or until golden brown.  It will be puffy when you take it out.  Don’t worry it will flatten quickly. Cool completely.  ( We put ours in the freezer to chill)

Frosting –  Mix 8 oz. of softened cream cheese with 1/4 cup powdered sugar.

Frost the cookie dough leaving about 1/2 of cookie around the edge.

Place your favorite fruits of the top .  Refer to the photos.  Some fruits make a better choice than others.  A good combination is strawberries, blueberries, kiwi and peaches.  Be careful to choose colors that will pop on the frosting.

Slice and enjoy.    

Here is the Second Place winner.  Congratulations to you both.  Great job!!

Happy Cooking,
