Autumn Gingerbread Fruit Pizza, a seasonal twist on your traditional Fruit Pizza recipe!
My good friend Ashley use to make fruit pizza whenever we would get together. Traditional fruit pizza is made with sugar cookie crust, cream cheese, cool whip, and fruit.
I searched through Pinterest and couldn’t find a fruit pizza that was more Autumn / Winter like.
So I decided to use a gingerbread crust versus a sugar cookie crust!
I have added a dash of chili pepper to the gingerbread dough and it is so good! The little bit of chili pepper gives it a little heat along with the sweetness.
Paired with pears and apples sauteed in brown sugar and butter, and topped with cream cheese? AMAZING.
I hope you enjoy!

4 | I only chilled it for about an hour and serve!
