Best Fruit Pizza

This is such a beautiful, refreshing, and delicious summer treat.  It was a major hit at a family function we had this past weekend.  It was inspired by this recipe but I used a completely different frosting--this fruit dip, and made a thicker crust.  It was incredible!!!!

{What you need}
2 c sugar
2 sticks butter, softened
4 eggs
4 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
{for a thinner crust, half all of the above ingredients}
1 large jar marshmallow puff
juice of 1/2 lemon
9 oz. cream cheese
crisco and flour to grease the cookie sheet

fruit topping ideas:
mandarin oranges

Cream the sugar, eggs, and butter.  In a separate bowl sift together flour, salt, powder, and soda.  Slowly add to the sugar mixture and form a soft dough.  Grease and flour the cookie sheet and spread the dough evenly on the sheet.  **This was a little hard for me, for some reason.  I had to grease my hands so the dough wouldn't stick to them.  That helped it be a little easier.**  Bake the crust at 375 for 12 minutes.  Set the sheet aside and cool completely.  Mix the puff, lemon juice, and cream cheese for the frosting.  Right before serving, spread the frosting evenly over the entire crust.  Slice as desired and put your choice of fruit on each slice.  I put strawberries, mandarin oranges, and kiwi on each slice.  It was so gorgeous!!!
