Aka cream cheese frosting! It not only holds a lot of the flavor, but also adheres the fruit to your pizza! The crust is layered with sweet cream cheese to make the most amazing fruit pizza glaze. When paired with the fruit pizza crust it has a soft and creamy texture that’s irresistible.

How to Make Fruit Pizza:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Grease a baking dish with cooking spray. 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. To make a Valentine’s Fruit Pizza, use this darling heart tart dish.
  3. In a large bowl or mixer, combine sugar cookie dough ingredients until just combined. Press into dish. Use parchment paper to smooth if necessary. Refrigerated sugar cookie dough is less sticky to work with, but who has the time for that?
  4. Bake.
  5. Make the fruit pizza glaze by combining cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth. No need to allow it to cool completely! Spread onto the warm fruit pizza crust for a smooth, even finish without the fuss.how to decorate fruit pizza step by step photo
  6. Decorate! It is one of these easiest desserts to decorate and is always beautiful. Get creative and top with fresh fruit like grapes, pineapple, peeled citrus, kiwi, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, bananas and more!

Fruit Pizza is best served fresh, but can be stored refrigerated up to 3 days covered. This crust keeps better than most fruit pizza crusts.
