    12 servings

Ingredients

  • CRUST:
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • CREAM FILLING:
  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • GLAZE:
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh raspberries
  • 2 kiwifruit, peeled and sliced
  • 2 medium bananas, sliced
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced

Directions

  • In a small bowl, cream the butter, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients; gradually add to creamed mixture. Press dough into a 14- or 16-in. pizza pan. Bake at 350° 8-10 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool.
  • For filling, beat cream cheese until smooth; add sugar and whipped topping. Spread over crust.
  • For glaze, in a small saucepan, combine cornstarch and juices until smooth. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 1-2 minutes until thickened. Set aside 1/2 cup; spread remaining warm glaze over filling.
  • Arrange fruit over pizza; brush with reserved glaze. Chill until serving. (Note: If making a day ahead, substitute another seasonal fruit for bananas.)
