Mini Fruit Pizzas with Cream Cheese Frosting


Mini fruit pizzas. Such a great dessert idea for parties and get-togethers. Each person has a blast customizing their sugar cookie with their pick of fresh fruit.

I LOVE fruit. Love it. When I was pregnant with my first kid I went through a stage where all I wanted to eat was fruit salad. After a few months of that I moved into an orange-colored fruit kick. I ate tons of oranges, cantaloupe, clementines, etc. Even though I’m not pregnant any more, I’ve almost always got a good stash of fruit around my house.

I’m always drawn to fruity desserts and have wanted an excuse to try making a fruit pizza. When I saw a few ideas on Pinterest on making mini fruit pizzas, I knew it would be perfect for my daughter’s second birthday party.

It was really easy put together and it was something that both kids and adults liked. I also like that each person makes their own so they can pick and choose what goes on their fruit pizza.

Enjoy your pizzas and don’t forget to make a yummy smoothie with the leftover fruit!

Serves: 18-24
Ingredients
  • 2¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1½ cups granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 (8-oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 to 4 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 to 2 teaspoon vanilla extract (to taste)
  • Toppings: diced fresh fruit of any kind. The more colorful the better! If you are able, buy organic produce (especially peaches and strawberries as they tend to contain the highest pesticide residue).
Instructions
  1. For the cookies, preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and baking powder.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes). Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually add the dry ingredients and mix until thoroughly combined.
  3. Roll rounded walnut sized amounts of dough into balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are set and lightly golden. Let stand on cookie sheet 2 minutes before moving to wire racks to cool completely.
  5. To prepare the frosting, mix the cream cheese and butter together in a medium bowl until smooth and creamy. (I warmed mine a bit to make it smoother.) Add vanilla.
  6. Gradually add the confectioner’s sugar until frosting reaches desired consistency. Store in refrigerator until ready to use.
  7. If you are making this for a party, I'd recommend making an example and setting it on display so people know what to do!

    I love this idea and have decided to do this for a bridal shower. Do you have any idea how many cookies your frosting recipe covers? I need to make enough for 100 cookies and really don’t have a clue how many batches of frosting I should do. Any suggestions? Thanks!

      I haven’t made this in about a year but from what I remember there was lots of icing leftover from my batch of 24. If I were you, I would double the batch. That should be plenty!

        Thank you so much!

    Wondering how many calories a cookie and 1 Tbsp frosting would be?

    I love making fruit pizzas. I use a graham cracker or an oatmeal cobbler crust and use yogurt as my “frosting” and then pile it high with fruits. The kids love it and I love the healthy aspect of it.

    I was looking for a fun idea for my daughter’s graduation party (I always just buy an ice cream cake). I didn’t taste it ahead of time and I was hoping it would be great and this recipe did not disappoint. I made 1 & 1/2 x the recipe and it made about 32 cookies (no need to increase the frosting recipe). We used fresh peaches, blueberries, raspberries, and kiwi. They were so delicious, especially the peaches. Everyone kept going back for more and I was worried I would run out. I even had one for breakfast this morning. Definitely a crowd pleaser — my extended family said this should be a tradition from now on! Thanks!

      Yeah! Love hearing that!

    Another idea for the frosting (also works as a fruit dip) is 8 oz. cream cheese mixed with a jar of marshmallow crème. SO delicious!
