  • Butter – Unsalted butter, softened. Read more about How to Soften Butter Quickly. If you only have salted butter on hand, just skip the additional salt in this recipe.
  • Sugar – Use white granulated sugar in this recipe.
  • Eggs – I generally use large size eggs for baking unless otherwise noted
  • Vanilla – I prefer authentic vanilla extract, not imitation. Try making your own vanilla extract, it’s so easy!
  • Flour – All purpose flour works perfectly here
  • Baking Powder – For the rise to make these soft and fluffy.
  • Salt – A little salt in your baking helps balance all the sweet.

  • Cream Cheese –  softened for the BEST frosting. Learn How to Soften Cream Cheese here, and Can You Freeze Cream Cheese?
  • Powdered Sugar – Also known as confectioner’s sugar, this is important for a creamy, soft frosting.
  • Vanilla Extract – For a classic fragrance and flavor in the frosting.


  • For a tangier icing, you can easily substitute the vanilla for lemon, lime or orange juice if you like.
  • If you (or your kids) don’t like cream cheese, substitute butter instead for a classic buttercream frosting.

  • Sprinkle fruit with lemon or lime juice to help keep the color bright!
  • If you prefer more of a glaze to icing  you can add more liquid such as milk into your icing to make it less thick.
  • Don’t stop at my list of fruit! Mix and match and create the perfect fruit pizza cookie for your tastes!
  • Slice fruit extra thin to make decorating and eating easier.
  • Use clear vanilla if you prefer brighter white icing.

  • Buy premade sugar cookies instead of making your own. It’s easier to set up a fruit pizza cookie bar that way. Often your local grocery store bakery can do pre-orders for this!
  • Make your sugar cookies ahead – even a couple months in advance, if you freeze them!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make fruit pizza in advance?

Yes, you can make and refrigerate your mini fruit pizza cookies ahead of time. However, sliced fruits will bleed and soften over time, so if possible, add those at the last minute prior to serving.

How many calories are in a fruit pizza?

Luckily, eating fruit pizza in a cookie format means that they are already individually portioned! Of course, toppings will change your calories a little… but before you add fruit, each of these fruit pizza cookies comes in at 216 calories each, with the frosting included!

Make Ahead

  1. Make and bake the cookies for up to 48 hours prior to icing and serving.
  2. You can even make these cookies up to two months in advance, storing them in the freezer until you’re ready to serve and enjoy.

How to Store

  • At Room Temperature – Stack unfrosted cookies in an airtight container with a piece of parchment paper separating the layers. Store this way for up to four days.
  • Refrigerate – Store unused icing in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days, and once these cookies are iced, they will need to be refrigerated as well. Storing fruit is personal preference. I like to use small airtight containers and store each type of fruit separately in the fridge. Certainly mixing all the fruit together in a large container will work just as well!  
  • Freeze – You can transfer these cookies (frosted or unfrosted – but without fruit on top) to freezer safe storage bags or Tupperware and freeze for up to two months.

    I have made these before and had a problem with cookie being soggy if I left in fridge overnight. What am I doing wrong in trying to keep the left overs?
