Cream Cheese Frosted Fruit Pizza
There is nothing like an easy fruit pizza recipe and this is the best Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizza that you are going to find! With a baked crust, dreamy cream cheese frosting, and fruit slices, you may not be able to decide on your favorite part.
The fun part about this recipe is that you can change your type of fruit for each occasion. The first time you make it, use what I have listed in the ingredients list and the next time, change it up.
Fruit pizza can be made with most varieties of fruits, so choose those you have on hand or look for a specific theme. Doing something with all berries and kiwi is fun for a dark and brighter look, or go for something like oranges, cherries, and green grapes for something a little lighter.
This colorful fruit pizza is vegetarian, so it is great for a small gathering or even something that you can have children design during a playdate. The cookie in this recipe works as one large fruit pizza canvas or – if you cut the dough in half – two smaller pizzas. Your choice!
Whether you are looking for fruit desserts for a baby shower or wedding showers, a fun treat for Memorial Day, or just homemade recipes that will receive rave reviews, this one is a crowd pleaser!
- If you don’t have a pizza pan, you can use a cookie sheet instead. One dessert pizza may be too large for a single baking sheet, so consider making two smaller fruit pizza cookies in this situation.
- You can use your favorite fresh fruit, you do not have to use what I have. The best fruits to use will vary by season.
- If you want to turn this into an American flag cookie pizza, frost the sugar cookie base with the luscious cream cheese frosting and decorate it in a flag shape with strawberries and blueberries.
How To Make Fruit Pizza
Sugar Cookie –
3/4 cup softened butter, unsalted
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp almond extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp milk
2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
8oz block softened cream cheese
4 tablespoons softened butter
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons skim milk
Washed and sliced fruit of choice (I used fresh blueberries, mandarin oranges, and strawberries)
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees and line a pizza pan with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, beat your sugar and butter with a handheld electric mixer or a stand mixer until mixed.
Mix in your almond and vanilla extract, egg, salt, and sugar. Slowly stir your flour and milk into your sugar cookie mix.
Form your homemade sugar cookie dough into a ball and roll it out in a thick circle onto your parchment paper lined pizza pan.
If you would rather have two smaller pizzas, cut the dough in half and roll out two circles, but this will make one giant cookie.
Bake the pizza on your pizza baking sheet for 15-20 minutes and let it cool. Make sure that it is not mushy in the middle, but be careful not to let it burn. You want a soft sugar cookie crust with golden brown edges.
Once done, allow it to cool on a wire rack.
While the cookie is cooling, make your cream cheese mixture. Mix your softened cream cheese and softened butter in a medium bowl until creamy.
Mix in your vanilla extract and milk. Slowly stir in your powdered sugar until you have a creamy sweet cream cheese frosting.
Frost your cooled crust with a spatula, being sure to cover the whole thing.
Wash your favorite fruits and dry them all with paper towels. Place them onto your cream cheese layer. You want lots of fresh fruit, but be careful that it won’t all fall off as you cut the pieces.
Slice your pizza into six or eight pieces, serve, and enjoy!
Store any leftover pieces on a plate covered with plastic wrap or in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Eat them in the next day or two or the fruit will get mushy.
What Variety Of Fruit Should I Use?
I used blueberries, strawberries, and mandarin oranges on my cookie pizza, but as long as you position them in a single layer, you can use any variety of fruits you want.
Cut up kiwi, raspberries, cherries, mango, other fresh berries, or any other favorite fresh fruits or canned fruit that seem appealing.
What Can I Use Instead Of The Cream Cheese Frosting?
If you’d prefer not to make the fruit pizza frosting in this recipe, there are some other quick options that you may be able to use instead.
To make this easy dessert easier, try spreading some Cool Whip, whipped cream, or even Greek yogurt on top of the cooled sugar cookie crust. Be absolutely sure that it has cooled to room temperature though, or these items will likely melt down the sides.
