This Easy Fruit Pizza is the result of a fruit pizza I tasted at a Pampered Chef party many years ago. What a genius idea! Sugar cookie dough, cream cheese, fresh fruit…what could possibly be better!
It is an especially yummy treat in the summer when fresh fruit is easily available from your own garden or fruit and vegetable stands. We live in an area where there are delicious fresh peaches available in the late summer. I could make a whole fruit pizza with just fresh peaches and it would disappear in seconds. In the fall and winter when berries and peaches are harder to come by, the pizza is also good with bananas and apples with some caramel drizzled over the top. With the sugar cookie and cream cheese base, you really can’t go wrong – use whatever fruit and toppings you like!
One of my favorite parts of this recipe is decorating the top! There are so many fun ideas out there for how to decorate a fruit pizza. You can do it the way we did it in this picture, or just google “fruit pizza” on Google Images and go nuts! I loved looking at all the different designs. People are so creative!
The Pampered Chef recipe calls for store bought refrigerated sugar cookie dough. It definitely saves some time doing it this way, but, if I have time, I prefer homemade cookie dough. This cookie dough recipe gives a thicker, softer crust to the fruit pizza and makes it easier to hold on to when eating by hand. If you have leftovers (which is highly unlikely!), be sure to keep the extra Easy Fruit Pizza in the refrigerator.
