Fruit Pizza

We love our fresh fruit!  While we’re all quite content to eat it as is, I enjoy gathering a rainbow of colors for this fun dessert when summertime ushers in reasonable fruit prices.

Fruit Pizza

Bottom Layer

  • your favorite sugar cookie dough (we use homemade)

Second Layer

  • 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 c. sugar

Third Layer

  • colorful, fresh fruit:  your choice of strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, peaches, pineapple, bananas, red and green grapes, or any of your other favorites

Top Layer

  • 1/4 c. pineapple juice
  • 1 T. lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 c. water
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 1/4 c. corn starch
  1. Press cookie dough into pizza pan.  Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes.  Watch this!  Oven times and temps vary.  Allow to cool completely.
  2. Beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth.  Spread on cooled cookie crust.
  3. Get creative!  Arrange washed, sliced fruit on top of the cream cheese mixture.
  4. Combine top layer ingredients in sauce pan.  Heat, stirring constantly (love my whisk for this!), until thickened. Allow to cool.
  5. Pour cooled topping over fruit.  Spread lightly.
  • Top layer recipe is enough for two pizza pans.
  • What a fun recipe to make with children.  Let them be creative with the fruit arrangement!
  • For a bridal or baby shower, make mini-pizzas using regular-sized sugar cookies.
  • Go patriotic – make your pizza in a sheet cake pan.  Use Blueberries, bananas, and strawberries to create the American Flag.

  1. I love these things!! I have never made one cause they always looked complicated, but this doesn’t look so bad. Might have to try it.

  2. I enjoyed reading your blog tonight….Love it when I have time to do blog hopping…I always enjoy finding new blogs!
    This month I am posting on our Disney trip.

  3. Instead of sugar with the cream cheese on the second layer, it’s REALLY good if you use equal parts of marshmallow creme!

  7. I LOVE making this – though I haven’t tried your third layer. The first two are good enough to make me want to eat most of a pizza . . . and I don’t think the fruit justifies that! Man, I need to work on my willpower . . . yum, though!

  18. This is a new idea to me. I am intrigued with the cookie dough crust!

  19. Thanks for the great idea: I think these will be a perfect treat at a bridal shower that I will be arranging soon.

    All the girls will swoon over these fruit pizzas.

  20. We love making fruit pizzas here. We haven’t made them in a long time…and I have a ton of fruit to use- I think this will be the perfect way to use them! Thanks for the reminder. 🙂

  21. This sounds sooo good right now! I haven’t had a fruit pizza in years. I remember a friend of mine made one when we were visiting her and it was delicious. I should try making it. Yum!

  22. We make a similar recipe and it’s delicious! Instead of pineapple and lemon juice, we just use orange juice.

    Seeing the picture makes me want to make it now! YUM!
