Fruit Pizza







  • For the pizza crust you will need 1 batch of sugar cookie dough (I prefer homemade, but you could use a mix or the kind you get in a tube)

My favorite sugar cookie recipe:

1 1\4 C. butter-softened
1 1\2 C. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1\2 tsp. salt
2 eggs
2 Tbsp. milk
2 tsp. vanilla
4 cups flour

Beat butter in a mixer until smooth. Add sugar, baking powder, and salt and beat until combined.

Beat in eggs, milk and vanilla

Beat in flour, a little bit at a time until everything is combined.

Divide dough in half and roll out on a lightly floured surface until it is at your desired thickness. No refrigeration time needed!

{note: this recipe makes a lot! It was big enough to make two large pizza sized cookies and about a dozen biscuit sized sugar cookies}

  • After you make the dough, roll it out onto a clean surface.
  • To form the round pizza shape, I used a large dinner plate and placed it on top of my dough and cut around it with a butter knife.
  • Place your circular shape onto a round pizza sheet , or on a regular baking sheet as long as it fits.
  • Bake at 375 for about 10 minutes. Be sure to check on it so that it does not overcook.
  • After it is baked, let it cool before putting the toppings on it.

  • The thing about fruit pizza is that you can put whatever fruit and toppings you want on it. It is totally up to you!

I made two different kinds and they turned out really yummy, so I will share what I did for mine.

Pizza A:

Fruit Dip topping:

1 container cool whip
1 6 oz. Yoplait strawberry yogurt

Combine the yogurt into the cool whip and mix well.

Spread evenly over one of the pizzas. Be sure to leave an outer edge for the "crust".

Toppings:

Fresh strawberries
raspberries, blackberries, blueberries ( I used frozen)

Arrange your fruit however you would like. Keep in refrigerator until right about to serve!

Pizza B:

Cream Cheese Frosting:


8 oz. cream cheese (at room temperature)
powdered sugar (I just pour some in until it is the right consistency)
1 tsp. vanilla
1\4 cup pineapple juice

Add all ingredients together and stir with a wooden spoon until creamy. Spread evenly over the cookie, leaving a crust.

Toppings:

4 kiwi sliced thin
1 can pineapple tidbits
1 can mandarin oranges

Arrange the fruit however you would like. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Enjoy!
