A TASTY FRUIT PIZZA RECIPE
This Homemade Fruit Pizza is one of my childhood favorites and gets made all the time over the warmer months. It is super easy to throw together and you can top it with any kind of fruit that you like. What really sets it off is the creamy cream cheese frosting that is spread all over the baked crust. You have a nice little crisp to each bite but it is nice and soft and with the fruit you just have a flavor explosion in your mouth with each and every bite. Looking to wow guests? Then you need to make this Homemade Fruit Pizza recipe!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
No. If you do not want to make your own crust you can simply use a packet or sugar cookie dough mix or use the pre-made cookie dough.
You can add any fruit that you like to this. I like a colorful variety but you can use as little or as much as you'd like. Just make sure that it covers the entire pizza.
Yes, but I would recommend waiting until you serve it to put the fruits on so the pizza itself so it does not get soggy. You can chop the fruits ahead of time and keep them in one bowl or separate bowls so they are ready for you when you serve this. The frosting can also be made ahead of time and stored overnight in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
You will want a 12-inch round pizza pan for this. Do not go any larger or smaller or the crust will not fit or bake correctly. If you do not have this pan you can use a 10x15-inch rectangular pan in it's place.
Only if you are not using a nonstick pizza pan.
While this is best served once it is made, you can cover your pizza tightly with plastic wrap and it will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. I do not recommend freezing this.
