Yes, I’m sharing my favorite semi-homemade recipe for Fruit Pizza that you can have made in no time!

Ingredients

See recipe card below this post for ingredient quantities and full instructions.

  • Sugar cookies – Either store-bought, refrigerated sugar cookie dough or homemade sugar cookies from scratch
  • Cream cheese – The cream cheese is whipped into a light, fluffy topping.
  • Marshmallow fluff – Instead of adding liquid, sugar, and vanilla to the cream cheese to make it sweet and spreadable, this recipe uses marshmallow fluff as a shortcut.
  • Fruit – Use whatever you like and whatever is in season. My kids like berries, kiwi, and mandarin oranges.

How to Make Individual Fruit Pizza

  1. Make the Whipped Cream Cheese: Assuming your sugar cookies are ready to go, the first step in this recipe is to whip the cream cheese until it’s light and fluffy, then incorporate the marshmallow fluff.
  2. Top the Sugar Cookies: Spread the cream cheese mixture onto each of the sugar cookies.
  3. Decorate: Place the fruit onto the cream cheese topping, then serve.

Quick Tip

Less is more when it comes to toppings! Don’t go overboard and add all of the fruit to the mini sugar cookie pizzas. It will overwhelm the flavor and get all mushy.

How To Store Leftover Fruit Pizza

Any leftover fruit pizza can be stored in the refrigerator. To keep the sugar cookies from getting soggy, store all of the pieces individually. Keep the cookies separate from the frosting and then top with fruit when ready to eat.

FAQs

What kind of fruit can you put on fruit pizza?

Any kind of fruit will work on the toppings. Some of my favorites to add include berries, kiwi, and mandarin oranges. You can also use whatever is in season like cherries or mangoes.

What is the difference between a fruit tart and a fruit pizza?

The crust and filling are major differences when it comes to a fruit tart and a fruit pizza. A tart tends to have a shortbread crust and a pastry cream base, while a fruit pizza is made from a sugar cookie and topped with a cream cheese topping.

How can I get the fruit to lay flat on my cookie?

The best way to get the fruit flat for a beautiful pizza topping is to slice everything in half. This will make the fruit easier to work with and allow for stunning decoration.
