Fruit Pizza Recipes that are Hard to Resist!

If you've never had the pleasure of trying these fruit pizza recipes or tasting a fruit pizza at all, we feel for you! They are much more delicious than it seems like they should be. The ingredients, individually, are tasty (berries, kiwi, cookie, cream cheese,...) but, together, these fruit pizza recipes form masterpieces.

Fruit Pizza

I can't think of a more rewarding dessert to make or one more popular with people of all ages. Fruit pizzas are quick and easy, relatively healthy (as desserts go,) and absolutely beautiful! Of course, they're delicious too! An added bonus is that these fruit pizza recipes are easy for the kids to help out with. They'll take such pride in the creation of these beautiful fruit pizzas and they can help with virtually every step.

We know of a number of fruit pizza recipes, but our favorite is still the easy fruit pizza we learned how to make from our Pampered Chef friend when we bought our first baking stone. We've made this recipe many different ways and they all end up delicious. You can vary the fruits, the cookie type, and even substitute Splenda for all or part of the sugar. Any way you add your own touch to it should work.



Pampered Chef Fruit Pizza Recipe
(at least how I remember it)

Ingredients:

  • 18 oz. Refrigerated Cookie Dough (sugar cookie or chocolate chip are best)
  • 8 oz. package Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup Sugar (or the equivalent in Splenda)
  • Roughly 4 cups Assorted Fruit (We prefer blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and kiwi for aesthetics and flavor, but try peaches, bananas dipped in lemon juice, apples, or any other fruit you fancy.)

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Take cream cheese out of the refrigerator to soften.
  3. Place cookie dough on center of baking stone or nonstick cookie sheet (We usually set aside about ¼ of the dough for a future use to help the cookie fit our 14" baking stone without overflowing.)
  4. Flatten with your hand.
  5. Roll the dough out, using a lightly floured roller, to almost cover the pan.
  6. Bake 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. (Do not over bake.)
  7. Wash and Slice fruit while cookie is baking. (Note: The Pampered Chef egg slicer is perfect for slicing strawberries and kiwi.)
  8. Cool 10 minutes.
  9. Loosen cookie with a long, serrated knife.
  10. Cool completely.
  11. While cookie is cooling, combine cream cheese and sugar in a small bowl until smooth.
  12. Spread mixture on top of the cooled cookie.
  13. Arrange fruit slices and pieces in a circular (or any) pattern on top of cream cheese mixture.
  14. Slice using a pizza cutter.
  15. Enjoy.

Serves: 12-16

Notes: This sugar cookie fruit pizza can be made with Crescent Roll Dough substitute for the Cookie Dough, making it a little less sweet. For theme parties or holidays, try shaping the cookie into something other than a circle. For instance, this is a perfect 4th of July treat, with a rectangular cookie and red, white, and blue fruits to form an American flag. A giant oval Easter egg, a red and white striped candy cane (leave fruit off for the white stripes (let me know if you find a white fruit!) for Christmas, or a holiday wreath can all work beautifully.


Brownie Fruit Pizza

Ingredients:

  • Brownie mix (+ ingredients listed on box)
  • 8 oz. package Cream Cheese, softened

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Take cream cheese out of the refrigerator to soften.
  3. Make brownie dough as directed on box.
  4. Place brownie dough on center of baking stone or nonstick cookie sheet (You may need to set aside some of the dough for a future use to help the brownie fit your baking stone without overflowing.)
  5. Roll the brownie out, using a lightly floured roller or your hand, to almost cover the pan.
  6. Bake per the package instructions or until golden brown. (Do not over bake.)
  7. Wash and Slice fruit while brownie is baking. (Note: The Pampered Chef egg slicer is perfect for slicing strawberries and kiwi.)

This is our quickest, "down and dirty", of the fruit pizza recipes. Make this for a special surprise breakfast, snack, or even dessert and thrill the kids. Allow extra time to let them "decorate" their pizza themselves!

Bagel Fruit Pizzas

Ingredients:

  • 1 bagel half per person (we use whole wheat, but just about any kind will do)

  1. Toast bagel
  2. Mix cream cheese and sugar together in a bowl (if you're including the optional sugar)
  3. Spread cream cheese mixture (or just plain cream cheese) on toasted bagel.
  4. Top with fruit and serve (or, better yet, serve with fruit in a separate bowl and allow the kids to decorate as they please.)
