I've been a guest at many bridal and baby showers. It's always exciting to play games, exchange gifts and eat delicious food with your girlfriends. But what about when it's your turn host a shower at your own home? I'll admit, as a single woman, this strikes fear into the depths of my soul. What will I serve? What if my house is too small? Will everyone have a good time? There are many questions that run through anyone’s mind when it comes to hosting a party…mine always seems to stop on making sure I serve the perfect food.
A couple of weeks ago, it was my turn to host a simple shower for a good friend of mine. I scoured recipes online, on Pinterest and anyplace I could find for the perfect shower foods. Something simple yet elegant. Something that would be a crowd-pleaser. Then it hit me…fruit pizza.
Fruit pizza is so delicious and fresh-tasting, and it's always a hit. Then I thought, what if it was a make-your-own fruit pizza bar with a variety of fruit toppings for every guest to personalize their own?
The stress seemed to melt away as I found the recipe on Pillsbury® for Mini Fruit Pizzas. I mixed the topping as called for in the recipe but did something a bit different with the cookie base. Using a roll of Pillsbury sugar cookie dough, I cut slices about 1 inch thick, patted them down to half an inch and baked. This gave a slightly larger cookie surface to work with.
