Texas Hill Country Strawberry Dessert Pizza

You don't have to be patriotic to appreciate this colorful dessert featured on the Texas Hill Country Facebook page.

Texas Hill Country Strawberry Dessert Pizza

1 - 16 oz package refrigerated cookie dough
2 - 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
2/3  cup sugar
1 - 16 oz container fresh strawberries, halved
1 - 13 oz container strawberry glaze (I use Marzetti's)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut cookie dough into 1/4 inch slices and arrange on a lightly greased 14 - 15 inch pizza pan. You can also layer foil over the pizza pan for easy cookie removal. Press the cookie dough pieces together to form a pizza crust. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-18 minutes or until the cookie dough is cooked and golden brown. Let cookie crust cool completely.

Beat cream cheese and sugar together until smooth and creamy. Spread cream cheese mixture over cooled crust to within 1/2-inch from the cookie edge. Spread the strawberry glaze over the cream cheese mixture and top with strawberry halves. Serve immediately. Or, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Store leftovers in refrigerator.

Leftovers? You've gotta be kidding.
