Hi there! Today is the day before July 4th! I can’t believe summer is flying by so fast!

But I am super excited because tomorrow we are going to a fun pool party at a friend’s house. I’m planning on bringing red velvet cupcakes topped with cream cheese frosting and fresh blueberries. Yay!

And the day after that we will be heading down the shore for a 9-day long family vacation! I have been looking forward to this for months. I can hardly wait!

So things will be pretty quiet around here for the next couple of weeks.

But don’t panic if you aren’t seeing any new recipes in your inbox! I’ve got plenty of amazing treats in the archives for you. Be sure to check out this no-bake cheesecake, this rhubarb crisp, and this s’mores pie, if you’re looking for something seasonal and summery!

Today though, we are talking about fruit pizza. This is such a fun treat! It’s got a soft, buttery cookie crust, a layer of fluffy, sweet cream cheese, and TONS of gorgeous, seasonal summer fruit. And it’s so much fun to make!

My kids’ eyes nearly popped out of their heads when they saw this. Can you blame them?? It’s like a beautiful rainbow! Such a stunning presentation, but really so simple.

HOW TO MAKE FRUIT PIZZA

This fruit pizza is so much fun to make! You are going to love it.

Here is what you’ll need:

  • Sugar Cookie Dough
  • Cream Cheese Frosting
  • Fresh Fruits of your choice!

There are 3 main components: the crust, the toppings, and the glaze. Let’s start with the crust.

THE CRUST

The crust for this fruit pizza is made from soft sugar cookie dough. If you’d like, you can use store-bought dough and save yourself some time.

But for what you see here, I used my favorite soft & chewy sugar cookie recipe. It’s easy to make in just one bowl, and it’s got such a great soft, chewy texture and rich vanilla flavor. You can read more about it here: Soft & Chewy Sugar Cookies.

Pressing sugar cookie dough into a pizza pan.

Just press the dough into the bottom of a pizza pan, in an even layer. If you don’t have a pizza pan, you can order one here: Pizza Pan, or just use a sheet pan like this one: Baking Sheet.

Once you’ve pressed the dough into a nice, even layer, pop it in the oven to bake. You’ll know it’s done when the edges are set and golden brown, and the center is still a bit soft.

Let this cool completely, while you get going on the toppings.

THE TOPPINGS

Once the sugar cookie is completely cool, spread it with a layer of fluffy cream cheese frosting. This is going to act like the sauce for the fruit pizza.

Again, you could use store-bought frosting, but this homemade cream cheese frosting whips up in a snap, and the flavor is off the charts. Find the full recipe here: Cream Cheese Frosting.

Now for the fun part: decorating the fruit pizza! Just use an assortment of your favorite fresh fruits, and let your creativity go wild! Arrange the sliced fruit however you like. It’s fun to play around and make pretty patterns!

THE GLAZE

The last step is to glaze the fruit. This part is optional, but it gives the fruit the most gorgeous shine, and it also helps to keep it fresher longer.

Just brush the glaze all over your creation. Ta-dah!

IS FRUIT PIZZA HEALTHY?

For more info on the nutritional value of this fruit pizza, check out the nutrition label in the recipe card below.

This fruit pizza can be made gluten-free just be swapping out the flour for a gluten-free blend. Look for one that subs 1:1 for regular flour. Here are a few good options:

WHAT TO PUT ON FRUIT PIZZA

You can use any combination of fruits you like on your fruit pizza.

For what you see in these pics, I used a combination of:

  • Strawberries
  • Kiwi
  • Mandarin Oranges
  • Grapes
  • Raspberries, and
  • Blueberries

I loved how this looked overall, but I think it would have been fantastic to also have some stone fruits like nectarines, peaches, or plums.

And it would be perfect for Memorial Day or the Fourth of July if you just used red, white, & blue fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, white peaches, or star fruit. You could even arrange the fruit to look like the American flag!

CAN FRUIT PIZZA BE MADE AHEAD?

If you’re looking to make this fruit pizza ahead, I have a few suggestions for you.

  1. The sugar cookie crust and cream cheese frosting can be made several days prior, and kept tightly wrapped. The frosting should be refrigerated, but it’s fine to leave the crust out at room temperature.
  2. The fruit can be sliced, arranged, and glazed 1 day before serving, but it’s really best to do it the day of.
  3. Fruit pizza is fine left out on your dessert table for a few hours.

    If you have any leftovers, they should keep in the fridge for another day or so, although you might notice the fruit doesn’t look quite as pretty as when it’s freshly sliced.

    HOW TO MAKE FRUIT PIZZA COOKIES

    If you want to do cute little individual fruit pizzas, make the sugar cookies as directed here: Soft & Chewy Sugar Cookies. Then top each one with a dollop of cream cheese frosting, arrange the fruit on top, and brush it with glaze. These are awesome little finger foods for a kid’s birthday or class party!
