Fruit Pizza for a Crowd

I gets lots of compliments when I make this because it looks so impressive. The secret is arranging the fruit in an attractive pattern. I often use a combination of strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and kiwi fruit. Light whipped topping can also be added. See notation below for using different pan sizes.

1 package (20 oz.) sugar cookie dough
1 qt. strawberries, washed and hulled (or other fresh fruit)
1 large box (1.4 oz.) sugar-free vanilla instant pudding
3 cups skim milk
6 oz. (1/2 of a 12 oz. tub) light cream cheese (room temperature)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 16-inch pizza pan with a non-stick spray. Slice cookie dough into 1/4-inch thick slices. Arrange slices on pizza pan so that they are 1/2 to 1-inch apart. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden and set. Cool. In small mixing bowl, combine pudding mix and milk. Beat on low to mix. Add cream cheese and beat until smooth and thickened. Pour over cooled cookie crust. Arrange fruit on top.
