Easy Fruit Pizza Overview

I love this dessert because it’s made with fresh fruit, a cookie base and a cream cheese frosting.

All that’s required is to bake the cookie dough, mix and spread the cream cheese frosting on top, chop the fruit, then design your own fruit pizza!

Recipe ingredients on the counter including bowls of fresh strawberries, grapes, blueberries, some cream cheese, refrigerated cookie dough, powdered sugar and vanilla extract.

Recipe Tips

  • Bake your fruit pizza at 350°F to get a lightly browned crust, but watch closely to prevent burning. Baking times usually range from 12 to 16 minutes, so monitor your oven accordingly.
  • Wait until the crust has cooled completely before spreading the frosting on top. To speed this up place it in the fridge to help chill faster.
  • Strawberries, grapes, mangos, blueberries, and kiwi are all popular choices. Other options include bananas, cherries, raspberries, blackberries, and canned mandarin orange sections. Pat the fresh fruit dry with a paper towel before decorating to remove any excess moisture.
  • Frozen fruits will not work for this recipe! They can be watery and mushy, so stick to fresh fruit.
  • To avoid lumps in the cream cheese icing, sift the powdered sugar into a bowl before mixing it with the cream cheese.

How to Store Leftovers

Refrigerate – Place the fruit pizza in an airtight container or cover it tightly with plastic wrap. You can store the leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days. Remember that the crust may soften over time due to the moisture from the fruit and frosting.
