Do I have to refridgerate it first, if so for how long?

If I was to put my filling in straight away, would the base go soggy? (filling is cold and will need about an hr to set before eaten)

yes, base needs to chill or the filling will just heat through and go mushy. Base won't be biscuity enough otherwise. put it in the fridge - shouldn't need very long - I'd say an hour or so. The butter needs to solidify

Oh no! I only have an hour to make the whole thing (Children's cookery club at school!) They are making a fruit pizza and need some sort of base. I really do not want to buy the ready made pastry ones.sad

Well, I decided to make the base the night before (well bases x10!) Children then made really lovely fruit pizza's to take home. I was amazed at how creative some children are! (the pizzas are more like a cheese cake) Will definitely use the recipe again.

8 inch biscuit base (25g of melted butter, 100g of crushed digestive biscuits – chill for at least ½ an hour)
200g low fat cream cheese
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 - 2 tablespoons of milk
A mixture of chopped fresh fruit.
To prepare the filling:
•Beat together cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract and lemon juice.
•Add just enough milk to the mix to make it spreadable onto the crust.
•Spread the cream cheese mixture with a back of a spoon.
•Spread to the edge of the crust making sure that it is all nice and even.
•Place the fresh fruit onto the cream cheese mixture in a pattern.
•Refrigerate the pizza for at least an hour
