This is a great treat to make with the kids over the summer months! It is sweet dessert with a cookie crunch and creamy frosting but gets them to have a serving of fruits as well! Plus, it’s fun for the kids to get to decorate this how they’d like.

How to Make Fruit Pizza

Make the crust: Start by beating the butter and sugar together, then adding in vanilla. Separately, stir the dry ingredients together, then add them in with the wet ones. Cover the cookie dough and let it chill for half an hour.

Spread the chilled dough out on a pizza pan and cook for about 12-14 minutes.

Make the frosting: While the cooked cookie crust cools down, make the frosting. Start by beating the cream cheese and butter together, then slowly add in powdered sugar and cream, then vanilla.

Frost and add fruit: Spread the frosting over the cookie and then add your fruit. Begin with a few blueberries in the middle, then on the outside edge, a pattern of two blueberries and a raspberry. Inside of that, a layer of sliced strawberries. Next do a round of blueberries, next kiwi, and finally more raspberries.

Of course, you can decorate this in any pattern you’d like! You can add more or less of your favorite fruit.

How to Store Fruit Pizza

If you wrap this tightly and keep it stored in the fridge, this can last up to about 3 days. Keep in mind, the cookie crust will begin to soften so this certainly tastes best the day it is made.

all the recipes that you show look so good, but there is one thing Iam type 2 can’t have these too much sugar. Does anyone have recipes made for people like me, Iam sure I am not the only one that would love to try ones that are safe for us to eat. I never see any recipes for type 2 people to enjoy like you do. Any ideas ?

Each dish to complete requires a combination of many ingredients together. The fruit pizza looks both beautiful and adds a lot of quality to each person. I also want to make such a delicious dish.
