One of the ladies in the office brought this to work so I had to find a recipe that was similar. This did the trick for me. Absolutely wonderful. From Junior League Centennial Cookbook. Prep time is estimated. Feel free to use any fruit combination you like.

- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water

Perfect and easy! I made 2 one w/ store bought Pillsbury cookie dough and one w/ this homemade crust for a birthday at my husbands work. Both were devoured! I do NOT put the glaze on either of them, it doesn't need it! The Pillsbury refrigerated cookie dough was much sweeter maybe greasier too? The homemade dough was a little easier to push into a giant circle and puffed up higher and was flakier. both were wonderful I might consider adding a tiny bit more sugar to the homemade since that was the only thing some might like more about Pillsbury. We omitted the bananas I love them but a lot of people don't and then I don't have to worry about their looks. We use fresh: strawberries, blueberries and kiwi those 3 are a must, I also added canned mandarin oranges because they are awesome. Those 4 fruits are all you need, all bright colors and they look and taste awesome! Thanks for a homemade crust I will use again much cheaper than buying store bought cookie dough! ps I think the title of this recipe should mention homemade cookie dough crust since they others have you buy cookie dough. I think more would quickly pick this recipe, that is what I was searching for.
This was so pretty! It's tasty, too. I did have a teeny problem with the glaze, as the amounts called for made way too much for my pizza (I measured the "crust" and got 14"). And, the directions don't say to refrigerate the completed pizza, but I did because I had a little glaze run-off. None of that affected the sweet and fruity taste, though! I made ours without berries :( due to GI horrors, but this would be even more stunning with the berries. Worth the little bit of effort - my guys loved it! Thanks!

Quite attractive and very yummy! The glaze gives a bit of rosy color and just enough sweetness. The kids went nuts for this! The only problem I had was my own doing. I didn't allow enough time for the glaze to chill so it ended up running. Definitely didn't affect the flavor, though. Thanks for a great recipe!
