Mini Fruit Pizzas

Mini Fruit Pizzas are individual sized versions of a classic favorite! With a sugar cookie base, cream cheese frosting, and fresh fruit, they’re to die for!

This recipe was inspired by our original fruit pizza. It’s similar to a fruit tart, but with a sugar cookie crust. Our whole family loves this dessert!

A Favorite Kid-Friendly Treat

Today I’m sharing miniature versions of those gorgeous fruit pizzas you’ve probably seen before. Because these ones are individual size, they’re perfect to take to parties, summer BBQ’s or just make for you and your family.

They consist of a sugar cookie base, and a sweetened cream cheese frosting with fresh fruit on top. I couldn’t resist spreading a little Nutella on a few too. You can get really creative and make any design you want using the fruit you have at home.

This is a really kid-friendly recipe! They can help flatten the cookies, frost the cookies and decorate them too! You can snack on the fruit as you go and use any extra frosting as a dip for later.

I hope you’ll give these sugar cookie fruit pizzas a try, because they taste as good as they look!

How to Make Them

PREP. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

SUGAR COOKIES. Mix the sugar cookie ingredients according to the instructions in the recipe card. Roll dough into 1.5 inch balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-9 minutes or until edges are golden. Let cool.

FROSTING. Make frosting by creaming together two softened 8 oz. cream cheese bars and ½ cup softened butter (1 stick). Add 2 teaspoons vanilla. Slowly add about 3 cups of powdered sugar. Add more or less sugar to get the consistency you desire.

TOP. Spread frosting (or nutella) over cookies and top with the fruit you like.

One of my favorite dinners that my kids like is making personal pizzas. You can do the same for these mini fruit pizzas! You can have different flavored frostings as well as bowls of different fruits. Adults and children will delight in customizing their own mini fruit pizzas.

Alternative Frosting: I personally love the cream cheese frosting and nutella, but here are a few others you  might like:

Fruit Ideas: For this post, I used sliced strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, bananas, and kiwi. Some other fruits you can use include:

  • Mandarine oranges
  • Blackberries
  • Peaches
  • Pineapple
  • Mango

Making Ahead and Storing

Can you make this in advance? Because the little pizzas are topped with fresh fruit it is best to assemble them within a couple hours of serving. However, there are elements that you can make ahead of time to make assembly go more quickly. 

  • Cookie base: Make 1-2 days in advance and store them in an airtight container. You can also freeze them for 2-3 months in a freezer safe container. 
  • Frosting: Store frosting in a tightly sealed container and keep it in the fridge or freezer. Be sure you allow enough time for the frosi to thaw so it can spread on smoothly.
  • Fruit: You can wash and cut most fruits the day before. Store the prepared fruits in separate containers in the fridge. Fruits such as bananas that brown quickly should be sliced right before topping the cookie.

Leftovers: You can keep any leftovers for up to 3 days in the fridge. Be sure to tightly wrap the plate with plastic wrap. Remove any fruit that has become too brown/mushy.

  1. Thank you so much for the shout-out! I’m so glad you liked them–I mean, what’s not to like? Sugar cookies and frosting?!? YUM!

  2. Hi I just ate at BJ’s and had my first Zieke and I had the strawberry shortcake recipe, can I use this sugar cookie recipe to make a pie Zieke, it was amazing the one at BJ’s so just curious if I can use this to make a pie Zieke?

    1. Mmm that sounds amazing! Yes, I’m sure you could. I haven’t tried with this specific sugar cookie recipe, but as long as you cook it in a skillet and make sure not to overtake, it should work great!
