This week's recipe is:
Fruit Pizza
Take one package of Pillsbury crescent rolls and separate all the pieces. Then pinch and press dough together to form a large circle on a pizza pan or pizza stone. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees F. Remove baked crust from oven and place on large, flat, round platter to cool completely.
 In a small bowl, stir together 8 ounces of cream cheese, 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Stir until sugar is dissolved.
Spread cream cheese mixture on cooled crust with a knife or the back of a spoon. Try to get the cream cheese as close to the crust edge as possible.
Cut different types of fruit into slices and arrange in a circle on top of the cream cheese spread. I used banana slices, raspberries cut in half, halved green grapes, canned (drained) mandarin orange slices, and strawberry slices.
 It's easiest to start in the middle and work your way out to the edge with the rings of fruit. Be creative and alternate colors on each ring and feel free to include ring of alternating fruits as well (banana, strawberry, banana, etc.).
 Squeeze orange juice from an orange until you have about a cup of juice (or just use purchased orange juice). In a saucepan, mix the orange juice with 1/2 cup of sugar and 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to make a top glaze. Heat until boiled, then remove from heat and allow to cool.
 Once the glaze has cooled, pour over the top of the fruit pizza, starting in the middle and working your way out. I poured a bit too much and had to clean up some glaze that ran off the edge of the fruit pizza. The glaze helps to reduce color changes from fruits being exposed to the air. Put the fruit pizza plate into the fridge for at least two hours.
 Remove from fridge and slice into triangle pieces with a pizza cutter. The entire fruit pizza was gone in one day. It's a great way to get an extra serving a fruit in your family's stomachs! DELICIOUS!
