Our Favorite Fruit Pizza Ever!

My mom and aunts are famous for many desserts and one they’ve made for decades that they are especially famous for is today’s fruit pizza (along with Homemade Cinnamon Rolls, Banana Bars, and our Cinnamon Bread Recipe)!

We are so glad we learned how to make this treat as well, because it’s a favorite that is always requested for birthdays, Mother’s Day and all summer functions.

With it’s soft and tasty crust, light frosting and delicious fruit on top, it’s hard to beat.

Why we love it:

  • Top with your favorites. Completely customize it with the fruit and fresh berries that YOU love – the possibilities of fruit toppings are endless!
  • Frosting. The sweet and tangy cream cheese and pineapple frosting is magical. It pairs perfectly with the sugar cookie crust!
  • For a last-minute treat. Make the crust and freeze it for a quick summer dessert when the craving strikes!

Ingredients

  • granulated sugar
  • unsalted butter
  • egg
  • all-purpose flour
  • cream of tartar
  • baking soda
  • salt
  • toppings – bananas, strawberries, kiwis, blackberries, pineapples, blueberries
  • cream cheese – softened
  • powdered sugar (confectioners’ sugar)
  • pineapple juice – or vanilla extract or almond extra for flavor
  • Fruit toppings – bananas, strawberries, kiwis, blackberries, pineapples, blueberries
    • Most soft fresh fruit can work well on this fruit pizza. For additional ideas, try apricots, peaches, mangoes, sliced grapes, mandarin oranges, or thinly sliced apples.

How to Make Fruit Pizza

  1. SUGAR COOKIE CRUST. In a large bowl cream together butter, sugar, and egg. Add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture.
    • Spread dough onto a lightly greased pizza pan (or line with parchment paper) in a circle, leaving 1-2 inches around the edges (the dough will spread as it bakes).
  2. BAKE. Bake at 350°F for 10 minutes. Cool.
  3. FROSTING. Cream together frosting ingredients. Spread over slightly cooled cookie crust.
  4. FRUIT. Right before serving slice the fruit and decorate the top of the pizza. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

Recipe Tips

  • Slice the pizza. Use a round pizza cutter to slice this colorful fruit pizza. A large kitchen knife will also work. 
  • Frosting variation. Instead of the cream cheese filling, use different flavored pudding, Nutella, Lemon Curd, yogurt, or your favorite Yogurt Fruit Dip.
  • For holidays. Use the various fruits to create beautiful designs on the pizza. 
    • Patriotic. Perfect for Memorial Day or the Fourth of July. Use red fruit like strawberries or raspberries, blueberries, and bananas.
    • Christmas. Red fruit with kiwis and accent with a bright fruit like mandarin oranges or pineapple.
    • Rainbow. Start at the center with red fruit and work outward, or line the perimeter with red and work inward. Use layers of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple fruits.
    • Different designs. Use different colored fruit to create stripes, circles/spiral patterns, or medallion patterns.

Storing Info

  • Make ahead of time. Prepare the ingredients a day beforehand, but don’t assemble the fruit pizza recipe until 2-3 hours before serving.
    • Crust – cook, cool and cover. Store at room temperature.
    • Frosting – store in an airtight container in the fridge.
    • Sliced fruit – store in separate containers in the fridge. Be cautious of fruits that become soggy or brown quickly. I suggest not cutting those until you assemble the pizza. 
  • STORE. Leftover best fruit pizza can be covered and stored in the fridge for a day or two. The fruit and crust will become more and more mushy the longer it’s stored, so it’s best to eat leftovers fairly quickly.

Notes

Make ahead of time. Prepare the ingredients a day beforehand, but don’t assemble the pizza until 2-3 hours before serving. Crust – cook, cool and cover. Store at room temperature.
Frosting – store in an airtight container in the fridge.
Sliced fruit – store in separate containers in the fridge. Be cautious of fruits that become soggy or brown quickly. I suggest not cutting those until you assemble the pizza. 
STORE. Leftover pizza can be covered and stored in the fridge for a day or two. The fruit and crust will become more and more mushy the longer it’s stored, so it’s best to eat leftovers fairly quickly.
Pressed for time. If you do not have time to make a homemade crust, you can easily grab a package of sugar cookie dough from the market. Press the dough into the pan and bake at 375°F for about 13 minutes.

    Now this is a homerun! It is a quick treat that is super easy to make and looks as good as it tastes! I love how it’s not overly sweet. The pineapple juice adds the perfect element to both the cream cheese base and the bananas! I always have fun decorating it with my kids! I must have made it 3 times the first week that I made it. If you’re looking for the perfect treat to bring to any party, this is it!
