Ingredients Needed To Make Mini Fruit Pizzas

  • Sugar cookie dough (store-bought, enough to make 12 cookies)
  • Cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • Powdered sugar
  • Vanilla extract
  • Fresh fruit (kiwi, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, or your favorites!)

How To Make Mini Fruit Pizzas

  1. Preheat your oven according to the instructions on the cookie dough package. While the oven heats up, grab a baking sheet and line it with parchment paper (optional, but it helps with cleanup!).
  2. Pop those cookies in the oven and bake them according to the package directions. Once they’re golden brown and delicious-looking, take them out and let them cool completely on a wire rack. This is important – don’t try to spread frosting on hot cookies!
  1. While the cookies are cooling, grab a mixing bowl and your electric mixer or whisk. In the bowl, combine your softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Beat it all together until it’s smooth and creamy, like frosting!
  2. Now for the fun part – assembling your mini pizzas! Take your cooled cookies and spread about 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture onto each cookie.
    Tip: If the frosting seems a little thick, you can add a tablespoon or two of milk to make it spread easier.
  3. Now comes the best part – topping time! Grab your favorite fruits and get creative. Slice your kiwi, raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries (or any other fruits you love) and arrange them on top of the cream cheese frosting. You can make little fruit designs, spirals, or even faces – the possibilities are endless!

Variations & Substitutions

  • Crust Twist: For a different flavor base, try using graham crackers or shortbread cookies instead of sugar cookies.
  • Double the Chocolate: Drizzle some melted chocolate or honey over your mini fruit pizzas. 
  • Nutty Surprise: Sprinkle chopped nuts like almonds, pecans, or even peanuts on top of the cream cheese mixture before adding the fruit for a delightful textural contrast.
  • Tropical Twist: Feeling adventurous? Use tropical fruits like mango, pineapple, or passion fruit for a refreshing and exotic twist on your mini pizzas.
  • Healthy Hack: Looking for a lighter option? You can use a mixture of plain Greek yogurt and a little honey instead of the cream cheese frosting.

Commonly Asked Questions

Can I use homemade sugar cookie dough instead of store-bought?

Absolutely! If you’re feeling adventurous, you can use your favorite homemade sugar cookie dough recipe. Just make sure to roll out the dough and cut it into circles about the same size as the store-bought cookies.

Can I prepare the cream cheese mixture in advance?

Yes, you can definitely make the cream cheese mixture ahead of time. Just whip it up, store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator, and then let it come to room temperature before spreading it on the cookies.

How do I store mini fruit pizzas?

These mini pizzas are absolutely delicious fresh, but they can also be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. They’re perfect for a quick and easy grab-and-go snack throughout the week! While they’re best enjoyed chilled, if you prefer them at room temperature, you can take them out of the fridge about 15 minutes before serving. We wouldn’t recommend reheating these mini pizzas, as the cookie crusts can become soft.
