Fruit Pizza

I made this fruit pizza for a World Cup party at my house on Sunday and it was delicious!  Here's the recipe:

2 packages of sugar cookie dough
8 oz Cream cheese
8 oz Cool whip
3/4 cup powder sugar
2-4 cups of fruit   (If you use bananas, first dip them in pineapple juice to keep them from turning brown.)

1/2 cup white sugar
pinch of salt
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup orange juice (i used fresh squeezed)
2 T lemon juice
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon orange zest

Press the cookie dough into a circle pan and cook according to instructions on package.   
Combine cream cheese, cool whip and powdered sugar and spread it over the cooled cookie.
Spread the fruit over the pizza.
To make the glaze, cook all the ingredients except orange zest on medium heat in a sauce pan.  Stir.  Let it come to a boil and boil for 1-2 minutes or until thick.  Take it off the heat and add zest.  Cool it for a few minutes, but don't let it set.  Spoon over the fruit.

Chill the pizza for 2 hours before cutting and serving.

*I used bananas, peaches and blueberries because I had those on hand.  If you try this, let me know what fruit you use and how it turns out!
