Summer Fruit Pizza

Pin It

If I was going to a 4th of July potluck, I’d definitely bring this fruit pizza. If you haven’t decided what to make for your Independence Day celebration, make this! One of the simplest but most crowd pleasing summer desserts ever. A quick story about this fruit pizza. Once my RAs and I made one. The 7 of us devoured it in one sitting. The next night we really wanted leftover fruit pizza. Of course there weren’t leftovers because we ate all of it! So… we made it again the very next night. Kids love it. Grown ups love it. You could even only use red and blue fruit to make it more festive. However, if I was making it this week I’d definitely add fresh peaches. Strawberries, peaches, and blueberries. Yum! The recipe below is the easy version using refrigerated packaged sugar cookie dough. We like easy for parties right?! But I’ve done this three ways. 1. The refrigerated packaged sugar cookies dough roll. 2. Dry sugar cookie mix, adding in my own eggs and oil. 3. Homemade sugar cookie dough. You get to decide!

Ingredients: 

  • 1 roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 1 package 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups assorted fruit, sliced if necessary – I used blueberries, kiwi, and strawberries. For a festive 4th of July option use strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and/or bananas. For a fruit that’s fresh and delicious right now version use strawberries, peaches, and blueberries. 

Directions: 

Heat oven to 350. Spray a pizza stone or round pizza pan with cooking spray. Press the refrigerated dough into the pan or stone, creating a round edge. Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool completely. 
Beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla together until fluffy. Spread cream cheese over cooled cookie crust. Arrange fruit in a pretty design on top of cream cheese mixture. Serve immediately or chill for 30 minutes. Slice in wedges or squares.
