Bring on the yumminess with this Fabulous Fruit Cookie Pizza!   This classic soft-baked sugar cookie pizza is topped with a light cream cheese frosting and is bursting with the fresh fruits of the season!  

We’re summer inspired for your next picnic, BBQ, potluck, snacking-time and do we daresay, breakfast?  Why not?  We’re totally cool with it!   

Since the 4th of July is coming up, we decided to go with a Red, White & Blue theme.  Of course any seasonal fruit would be amazing on this pizza, because when you put cream cheese frosting and a sugar cookie in the mix, how could it not be?  

When choosing fruits, make sure your fruit is fresh or if canned or frozen, drained very well, so it doesn’t dilute the cream cheese filling on top of the pizza.   

Prepping ahead TIPS if you want to make ahead!

You can make the cookie crust and cream cheese frosting up to several days ahead and just keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to go!  Just be sure and remove the cream cheese frosting from the fridge an hour or so before assembling everything so it can soften up enough to spread, if you do! 

It’s best to assemble your fruit pizza a couple of hours ahead of when you plan to serve it. 

You could even try adding  a teaspoon of lemon juice for a sweet lemon cream cheese frosting on your fruit pizza.

We’ve given you 2 options on your sugar cookie crust!  Both are vegan, yet one is gluten-free and flourless for those who want healthier or allergy-free options.  Both very delicious! 

We’ve also given you 3 options for your cream cheese frosting. One being a 3 ingredient, healthier option.  The 2nd option is a cream cheese frosting with more ingredients, like vegan butter and powdered sugar added in for a thicker frosting.  3rd option, buy it already made.  Most tubs of store-bought frostings are vegan, just check online to make sure.  

Regardless what crust or fruits you choose, you’ll definitely find this delectable fruit pizza a crowd-pleaser for sure!  We made this in an 8×8 pan, but you can use any pizza pan or any baking sheet.  Double recipe for larger crowd!
