Debbie's Fruit Pizza

My sister-in-law Debbie made this for Heather's shower. Isn't it pretty? And it tasted great too, of course. I love spring when berries and fruit are more plentiful.
Fruit Pizza
4 oz. cream cheese
1/2 c. butter or margarine
1 1/4 c. flour
1/4 t. salt
1 cream cheese topping (instructions at the bottom)
2 c. sliced strawberries
2 kiwi fruit, peeled and sliced
3 pecaches, peeled and sliced or madarin oranges

Topping:
12 oz. cream cheese
1/3 c. sugar
1 T. lemon juice
1 c. non-dairy frozen whipped topping

In a large bowl combine cream cheese and butter or margarine. Mix until well blended. Add flour and salt. Mex well, form into a ball, wrap with plastic wrap, and chill for at least 1 hour. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to form a 12-inch circle. Place in a 12-inch greased tart or pizza pan. Prick the bottom and sides with a fork. bake at 425° for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and cool.

Meanwhile, prepare the creem cheese topping. Combine cream cheese, sugar and lemon juice; mix until well blended. Fold in whipped topping. When crust is cool, spread topping evenly on it. Arrange fruits in circles atop the filling, working toward the center of the tart-arrange strawberries around outer edge of pan, the kiwi furit slices, fresh peach slices or madarin oranges, and more strawberries in the center. Transport in a cooler.
Yield: 10-12 servings
