This fruit pizza is a refreshingly refreshing dessert that is always a hit! Full of color, and pizzazz it’s a delicious way to eat your fruit!
I love this pizza! I don’t think this refreshing fruit pizza can claim its origin from Italy, but it doesn’t matter. It still tastes good. A sweet sugar cookie crust forms the basis of this sweet treat. It is then topped with a cream cheese layer that helps hold it together. It is creamy, sweet and the perfect frosting for fruit. Then comes the fun part, garnishing it with your favorite fruit. It becomes so colorful and inviting. Cut it and watch it disappear.
Fruit Pizza is the perfect dessert for BBQs, parties and family gatherings. It’s light and refreshing, which is great on a hot day. Nobody wants anything heavy, and although it has fruit on it, it’s sweet and tastes so heavenly, no one will complain. If you haven’t eaten fruit pizza yet, it’s time. And this is the recipe for doing it, tried and true, and is a family favorite!

Tips for Ultimate Fruit Pizza
Golden brown, with a soft and chewy crust, and a creamy decadence atop this fruit pizza is amazing!
- Cookie: It is soft and slightly chewy. You don’t want to overcook the cookie, it will make the crust tough and crumbly and hard to eat.
- chill: If you find the dough a bit sticky, try cooling the dough for about 30 minutes before rolling.
- Cool completely: You want the cooked cookie dough to cool completely before adding the cream cheese frosting. Otherwise it will melt and run away.
- Fruits: Use ripe fresh colored bright fruits for the best flavor. See below for more fruit ideas. If you’re concerned about excess moisture on your fruit pizza, after cutting the fruit, lay it out on a paper towel to absorb the excess moisture.
- Keep It Beautiful: I try to avoid using fruits that rapidly turn brown when left out, such as bananas, apples, and pears. If you want to use up those fruits, toss with some pineapple and let dry. This will help keep them from turning brown.
- Pattern: There is no wrong way to decorate fruit pizza! Just let your imagination go with the flow, it’s a great way to get the kids involved and let them fruit!
- Holidays: Use fruits and patterns to celebrate certain holidays and occasions. Like red white and blue on 4th of July or all red fruit for Valentine.
Fruit Pizza Variations and Short Cuts
It can come together in a pinch. Bake your cookie in advance and cut the toppings ready to go.
- getting ahead: It can be made ahead but set the portions aside until ready to serve. Bake the crust and even apply cream cheese frosting, but wait to add fruit until just before serving. This will keep the cookie from getting too wet.
- Fruits: There are many options that you can use. Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, pineapples, kiwis, mangoes, grapefruits oranges, clementines, peaches, and nectarines. Canned fruit also works, just drain thoroughly. Canned pineapple, mandarin oranges, pears, and peaches would all be delicious.
- Cookie Base: Yes, you can use store-bought sugar cookie dough, just roll and bake and top!
- Shape: It can also be rolled out on a cookie sheet or 9×13 pan. Even though it’s pizza doesn’t mean it has to be a circle in order to be delicious. Use what works for you.
- To cool: Cream cheese will give it a much needed tang and creaminess which compliments the fruit perfectly. You can also use regular frosting or store-bought vanilla frosting. If you don’t have vanilla pudding powder, you can omit it and add a little more vanilla extract.
- shop: It is best eaten the day you make it. The longer it is kept, the more quantity it will get. It is best eaten within 2 days. Keep tightly covered in the fridge.
