What's up, Internet? Chef Plum back with you from, and today I'm going to make a fruit pizza. What? Fruit pizza. What? Fruit pizza. Stay tuned. Alright guys so first things first to me, has got to be a crust. And what we're going to use to make that crust is going to be a sugar cookie dough. Now of course I would always tell you to make your own sugar cookie dough at home and use that. But just for the sake of people who may not have time to do that, any old store bought sugar cookie dough will be just fine. This is one of those rolled tube cookie doughs. We'll pull it right out of there. That's perfect. We're going to take our pie plate like this. Again keep in mind we're making a pizza crust. You've got to keep that in your head. So we want to get it all nice and patted down here. Almost like a pie kind of. You want to make sure it kind of stays as even as possible. If it's not even or relatively even, don't beat yourself up about it. But relatively even, one part will cook faster than the other part. And that will make it very thin or very brown. Just, you know, not as tasty as the rest of it. So I'm just tapping it down here. Kind of smoothing it out. Using my knuckles like this because it's easier to press down for me. There's no right or wrong. You could try a rolling pin but if you're going to use a rolling pin you're going to have to use a lot of flour. A lot of flour on top of a sugar cookie dough really kind of messes the taste up. So try to stay away from that. Now, I've got it all pressed in there just like this. What I'm going to do is I'm going to make a little edge, kind of like a crust. By using my knuckle and I'm just kind of pressing in like this, kind of moving things to the side. Gently. Gently is the key with this, you don't want to tear it up. Because it will break easy, it is cookie dough. So just like that. This is a great dessert for any kind of occasion. Especially with Thanksgiving right around the corner you've got to keep that in mind because this is a great dessert for that. It looks great on the table and it's got lots of fresh fruit on it. How could you go wrong? I'm not going to lie to you and tell you it's a healthy dessert but you do get the fresh fruit out of it. There you go. Perfect. We're going to bake it in the oven now. Alright guys now it's time to make the sauce for our fruit pizza. And everybody knows you can't put tomato sauce on a fruit pizza. So we're going to make ours out of marshmallow fluff and cream cheese. It's going to be so good. Check it out. So to make our sauce we're going to start off with half a cup of marshmallow fluff. Now marshmallow fluff is just that. it's marshmallow. So we're going to put in in there. Keep in mind this stuff is very, very sticky. So we just take it just like this off our spatula and put it right in there. There we go. I have a feeling I might have to put my spatula down and go to something else. No big deal. This is about 8 ounces of cream cheese. We're just going to drop that right in there just like this. And what I've got here to go with that is a teaspoon of vanilla extract and a teaspoon of almond extract. And we're just going to dump that right in there. If you have a hand mixer now is the time to use it. I unfortunately don't have one so we're going to have to use this. I'm just going to mix it up just like this. So we've got to make a little glaze to finish our pizza off while the crust is baking in the oven. So what I've got here is a little apricot preserves. We're just going to put two big spoonfuls in here. Just like this. Maybe just a touch more. And a little bit of water. This is about a quarter cup of water. I'm just going to pour that right in. I'm just going to give it a nice mix. Mix it around and let it simmer for a little bit. You want that water to reduce down. To make almost a syrupy consistency. It'll coat the back of a spoon nicely. Perfect. We'll let it sit for a few minutes, then it'll be good to go. Alright guys so our cookie crust is done. And as you can see in the culinary world and just like in regular real life, mistakes happen but you know what? It's okay, we're going to cover it right up with our sauce. Our marshmallow fluff cream cheese sauce we're calling it. So we're going to take it out of the bowl and we're just going to brush it on here. Now the key thing to remember, once you pull your cookie out, let it cool off. You don't want to try to frost something while it's still super hot. The frosting will just melt and come right off. It just makes a big old mess. So we're going to keep putting this on here. We're going to coat the entire thing just like this. All the way around. Then make sure we put a lot on there because it tastes so good. This is a great thing, like I said, for a family function. Maybe you've got to go to a family reunion and you're not real sure what to bring. You don't want to bring the same old roast chicken dish. Or maybe you don't want to eat Aunt Irma's famous chocolate cake anymore. So why don't you surprise everybody and bring them a fruit pizza. Alright. So now it's simple. We're going to take pieces of fruit like this and just garnish around it. Any kind of design you want to do. I've got these chopped strawberries I'm using. I've got a little apple. I've got a little kiwi, raspberry, mandarin oranges, and we're just going to place them on there just like this. I know if I had brought this to a family function at my house everyone would think that I was just trying to show everybody up or something. But then after they tasted it they'd be in love with it. Because that's the thing about a dish like this. It's so pretty as well as tasty. Not even a bad thing to try to do with your kids. If your kids are a little bit older you could put these things right down on there and they could place the fruit on the dish for you and have a lot of fun doing it. Okay. I try to fill in any holes that I have here with as much stuff as I can find. I'm going to put a little piece of apple in between each one here, like this. Now you don't have to worry so much about your apples browning either because you're going to glaze them over. Just like this. We'll finish it off with a little git of kiwi fruit. Kind of make a little flower shape there. Maybe we'll put a few blackberries in these tiny little holes we've got left here. Another great option you could use if you didn't want to make the frosting that we made, I know in the stores now they sell a cream cheese filling, I'm sorry, a cheesecake filling. That would also look great. So now we've got our fruit on there. We're going to take our glaze that we made from the stove. Like I said it has that nice consistency. Just like that. We're just going to brush it on. Gently is the key. You don't want to press it too hard because that will break it. The glaze will also make things stick in place a little bit once it's done. Fantastic. Come on guys, how great does that look? Alright. It looks pretty good, right? Alright guys there you have it. Fruit pizza with a marshmallow fluff frosting. I'm Chef Plum from, and that's how you make fruit pizza. See you next time.
