This fruit pizza icing is such an easy and quick recipe and is the perfect topping for your dessert pizza. It’s also great on cookies and so many other bakes! Quick and easy to make, this cream cheese frosting spreads easily and is the perfect accompaniment to one of our favorite summer time desserts.
One of my mom’s summer favorites was fruit pizza. For a little twist, I made a create your own fruit pizza bar. This icing goes on so smooth and is the perfect base for any fruit. It’s so quick and easy to make a batch, and remember, it has a tonne of other uses too!
I love the subtle flavor of vanilla in this frosting. It’s not overpowering, but light and fragrant and it works so well with whatever fruit you choose to top your pizza with. If you like a tangier icing, you can easily substitute the vanilla for lemon, lime or orange juice if you like.
Fruit Pizza Icing Ingredients
Cream Cheese – Be sure to soften your cream cheese before you use it. This will help it to combine more easily with the other ingredients for a wonderfully smooth icing.
You can make this fruit pizza icing in a stand mixer or mix it by hand. Just make sure that all of the ingredients are well combined so you have a smooth icing.
This icing is best when you use a full fat cream cheese, but you can substitute it with low fat if you prefer, it will still work well.
Use a block of cream cheese not a cream cheese spread. Spread contains too much liquid and can result in a runny icing.
Can You Make This Icing Ahead Of Time?
When I make this icing, I often make a big batch as it has a fairly long shelf life. Once you have made it, transfer it to an air tight container or a bowl covered with plastic wrap and it will keep for up to three days. You can also freeze the cream cheese icing for up to 1 month and thaw it in the fridge overnight.
