    We LOVE fruit pizza around here! I mean, is anything better than a cookie pizza?? I don’t think so! While I love a warm chocolate chip cookie pizza, I have to say that fruit pizza is my absolute favorite. It’s the perfect dessert for long summer days and is SO yummy! 

    You can use a homemade recipe for the dough, but I’ve found the premade dough is easy and tastes great for this fruit pizza. My kind of recipe! ;) There’s so many different ways to make this fruit pizza recipe unique. Just add your favorite fruits and designs to make it perfect for your family!

    • Raspberries
    • Blueberries
    • Blackberries

    Homemade or premade sugar cookie crust?

    This is totally up to you! I typically use premade Pillsbury sugar cookie dough because it’s super easy and convenient, but you could definitely make your own too. It will just take a little bit longer, but taste oh so delicious! You could even make a graham cracker crust for a no-bake crust option.

    How to make fruit pizza

    To get started, lightly grease a round pizza pan with non-stick spray. Press the dough into the pan. You’ll want the crust about 1/8 inch thick. Pierce the dough a couple times with a fork.

    Bake at 350°F for 8-10 minutes, until edges are lightly golden. Then let cool completely.

    While the crust is baking, make the cream cheese frosting. In a large bowl, whip together the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Then fold in the cool whip.

    Once the cookie crust has cooled, spread the frosting evenly on top using a spatula.

    Now it’s time to top with your favorite fruit! We love to use raspberries, strawberries, mandarin oranges, kiwi, bananas, cherry pie filling, etc.  It’s so fun to create unique designs and make it super pretty. :)

    Make a patriotic flag fruit pizza!

    If you’re looking for a festive dessert to make for Memorial Day or 4th of July, try turning this fruit pizza into a flag. We’ve made this flag fruit pizza many times and it’s so fun and celebratory. Makes the perfect patriotic dessert!

    1. Preheat oven to 350°F and spray a 9×13 or 15″ rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spray.
    2. Press cookie dough into baking sheet, then pierce a couple times with a fork.
    3. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until edges are lightly golden. Let cool.
    4. Spread frosting on top and decorate with blueberries for the stars and strawberries for the stripes.

    TIP: If you want to make the actual number of stars and stripes, you may want to try doubling the recipe and baking in a big sheet pan.
