Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizza Recipes with Cream Cheese Frosting
These adorable little Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizzas are always dressed to impress. No matter how you decorate them, they are always looking so darn perfect. But best of all, they taste amazing and can be finished in no time - especially if you use our pre-made cookie dough life hack. Here's a soft and chewy homemade sugar cookie option too.
We love serving these for special occasions like baby showers, wedding showers or even 4th of July picnics. They are so easy to customize for all sorts of different holidays, party themes, and preferences.
Pretty much anything goes with these beauties - just be sure you don’t decorate them too far in advance or the cookies will start to get soggy. Otherwise, go nuts and get ready to become the star of the show while everyone oohs and ahhs.
Best Fruits for Sugar Cookie Pizza
The only fruit that you will truly want to avoid is frozen fruit. As it thaws, the frozen fruit will leach out moisture and bleed color all over the white frosting.
If you are short on time, choose fruit like blueberries, raspberries and blackberries that don’t need to be cut. Otherwise, we love to use kiwi, strawberries, grapes, mandarin orange, peaches, mangoes and really anything else that is in season or looks good. It would be adorable made into a fruit board for a baby shower, bridal shower or a holiday party.
Ingredients in Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizza
- Sugar Cookie Dough - you can purchase pre-made sugar cookie dough at the store, or make your own homemade sugar cookie dough. Either one will work great!
- Fruit - you can use any of your favorite fresh fruits, including blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, kiwis, mandarins and much, much more.
Fruit Pizza Frosting
This is a light and fluffy cream cheese frosting. It has a tendency to melt if it is really warm (outside on a hot summer day) You can also use a cream cheese frosting for Fruit Pizza if you can't keep the fruit pizza really cool before serving.
- Whipping Cream - you want to use cold heavy whipping cream.
- Cream Cheese - this should be at room temperature so that it will mix well with the powdered sugar and vanilla.
- Powdered Sugar - if you notice that your confectioner's sugar has a lot of lumps, sift it through a fine-mesh strainer.
- Vanilla Extract - pure vanilla extract tastes best.
How to Make Fruit Pizza
- Make and bake the sugar cookies. Make the cookie dough as directed on the packaging (or use your favorite homemade sugar cookie recipe), then roll dough into 2" balls and place on a greased or parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are slightly golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool completely on a wire rack.
- Make the cream cheese frosting. Whip the heavy cream with an electric or stand mixer until soft peaks form and then set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the room temperature cream cheese until light and fluffy using the paddle attachment. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla and beat on low to combine, then on medium until light and fluffy, or about 2 minutes. Turn off the mixer and gently fold in the whipped cream by hand until smooth.
- Decorate and serve. Add the cream cheese frosting into a piping bag* with a tip and cut off the end. Pipe a thick, even layer of frosting over each cookie in a spiral, or another decorative design. Decorate each cookie with strawberries, blueberries and kiwi or any other of your favorite fruit, then serve. Enjoy!
Dessert Pizza Variations
Really all that you need to make a dessert pizza is cookie dough, a spread of some sort and fruit. You can mix and match all sorts of different cookie flavors, whipped toppings, and fruit on top. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Fourth of July Fruit Pizza - decorate each cookie with blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries for a red, white and blue theme.
- Family-Size Fruit Pizza - spread cookie dough about ¼-½” thick in a 12-inch pizza pan then make as directed and cut slices to serve. You can also make this is a homemade buttercream recipe too.
- Lemon Curd Fruit Pizza - spread a thin layer of Lemon Curd over the center of each cookie instead of cream cheese frosting.
- Citrus Fruit Pizza - add fresh lime, lemon or orange zest to your dough and decorate each cookie with slices or segments of your favorite citrus.
- Leftovers: leftovers will keep well in the fridge for up to 2 days.
- Cream Cheese Frosting: If you want to get some prep done ahead of time, you can make this up to 2 days in advance and store in an airtight container in the fridge

These were yummy and a great way to show off fresh summer fruit. I especially loved the shortcut for store-bought sugar cookie dough because, really, the effort here should be put into the freshest fruit possible, right! That gives the BEST taste!
One of my favorite cookies! I see myself making them over and over again!
