1 roll Pillsbury sugar cookie dough (or homemade if you prefer)
1 - 2 bars of Philadelphia cream cheese
Sugar (to taste)
Vanilla (to taste)
1 can of cherry pie filling
Fresh strawberries
1 small can of mandarine oranges
2 kiwis
Green grapes (or purple depending upon your preference)
1 banana
Pomegranate seeds

Smooth sugar cookie dough onto a cookie sheet or pizza pan (or make individual cookie-sized pizzas if you prefer and have the time!). Make sure your pan is lightly greased. Poke the dough numerous times with a fork then bake according to the package's instructions. Let the cookie cool prior to adding the cream cheese.

Mix the cream cheese (how much cheese you use is your personal taste preference...I like a lot!), vanilla (to taste) and sugar (to taste) until smooth. Spread on cooled crust as close to the edges as possible.

Spread out cherry pie filling (this is your "pizza sauce" and keeps fruit together) as close to the edges as possible.

Dice remaining fruit and add in order of appearance on the ingredients list (I do this based on size and color but you can vary) as close to the edges as possible. You do not have to use all of this fruit and you can also add whatever else you wish that is not listed (pineapple, peaches, mango make a great tropical twist, sometimes you can use only red and blue fruit for Y vs. Utah games, etc.).

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I usually cut everything in little cubes and pile them high. A big part of how is it looks is how the fruit is cut up. Some people spend enormous time putting everything in concentric circles. This can be done but it takes a lot of time. Another issue is over buying the fruit. This is where things get expensive. It really only takes a little of this and a little of that.
