Fruit Pizza

I think the only way I’m going to eat fresh fruit from now on is if it’s stacked on top of a cream cheese frosted sugar cookie pizza. Or if it’s mixed into a cocktail, of course. The beauty of this fruit pizza recipe is that you can choose whatever fruits you like best! Use only strawberries and blueberries for a more patriotic look on the fourth of July or create a vibrant rainbow like I have pictured.

While the fruit may be the star of the show, it’s not the only key player here. The “pizza” itself is SO good! It’s essentially one big homemade sugar cookie that’s super easy to toss together with baking staples that you likely already have on hand. Smeared all over it is a cream cheese frosting that is so good, I honestly have a hard time not just eating it right out of the mixing bowl.

To really give it the best shiny appearance, I use apricot jam to lightly brush the assembled fruit pizza. This creates a gorgeous glaze that not only photographs well – it also tastes so sweet and fresh! Truly, this is the summer dessert to bring to your next potluck, backyard barbecue, pool party, you name it. It’s as tasty as it is gorgeous!

Tips for the Best Fruit Pizza

Before you make this fruit pizza recipe, be sure to check out these quick tips and tricks!

  • Let the cookie cool. This is SO important! If you cookie crust is still warm from the oven, the frosting will melt right off of it and create a huge mess for you. It may require a little bit of patience, but waiting until the sugar cookie is completely cooled before frosting is imperative.
  • Room temperature cream cheese. You will not be able to mix the cream cheese to a smooth frosting consistency if it’s still cold. Let it sit on the kitchen counter for at least an hour prior to beating with the other ingredients.
  • Slice the fruit. When you slice the fruit, you’ll want to make sure everything is in bite-sized pieces and they’re all about the same size! This will help with not only the presentation value of it, but also how pleasant it is to bite into.
