Tips

Use parchment paper to press down and smooth the cookie dough base into the pan, if necessary.

Refrigerated sugar cookie dough is less sticky to work with, but who has the time for that?

I like to use a tart pan for beautiful fluted edges, but you can use a pizza pan, 1/4 cookie sheet / sheet pan, 2 pie dishes – whatever you have on hand.

No need to allow the fruit pizza base to cool completely before frosting! Spread onto the warm fruit pizza crust for a smooth, even finish without the fuss.

How to Store

  • Room Temperature – This dessert can sit out for up to two hours while serving. Because of the cream cheese icing and fresh fruit, it should be refrigerated after that.
  • Refrigerator – Fruit Pizza is best served fresh, but can be stored refrigerated up to three days covered. This crust keeps better than most fruit pizza crusts.
  • Freezer – While you can safely serve this fruit pizza, I don’t recommend it. The moisture content will change the outcome of this dessert after freezing!
