This fruit pizza recipe features a soft and chewy sugar cookie crust, almond-kissed cream cheese frosting and tons of fresh fruit with a drizzle of honey on top for a simple-yet-stunning dessert that brings serious wow factor to the dessert table.



For the crust:

  • 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

For the frosting:

  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract or vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

For the toppings:

  • 2 cups assorted fresh fruit (such as halved grapes, blueberries, raspberries, sliced strawberries, sliced kiwifruit, sliced mango, etc.)
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons honey


  1. First, make the cookie crust: In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt until well combined. In a separate bowl using an electric hand mixer or in the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, beat butter and 3/4 cup granulated sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Scrape down sides of bowl, then beat in egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Stir in dry ingredients just until a dough forms.
  2. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and transfer dough to refrigerator for about 20 to 30 minutes (while you preheat the oven) to firm up slightly.
  3. Heat oven to 375°F. Line a 12-inch pizza pan with foil. Once dough is chilled, remove from refrigerator and place on prepared pizza pan. Press evenly into an 11-inch round on pan (the dough will spread to the edges of the pan as it bakes).
  4. Bake cookie crust 10 to 15 minutes or until edges are lightly golden and center is just set. Cool completely in pan on a cooling rack; then, if desired, carefully transfer to a serving platter.
  5. Next, make the frosting: In a medium bowl using an electric hand mixer or in the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment, beat cream cheese, milk, almond extract and 2 tablespoons brown sugar on medium-high speed until smooth, about 1 minute. Use spatula to spread frosting evenly over top of cookie crust, leaving a 1-inch border along the edges.
  6. Finally, add the toppings: Arrange prepared fruit on top of pizza. Sprinkle with sliced almonds, if desired. Drizzle evenly with honey. Serve immediately.
  7. Store leftover pizza, covered in plastic wrap, in refrigerator for up to 1 day.


  • Recipe adapted from Midwest Living.
  • If you’re short on time or ingredients, you can swap the homemade cookie crust for store-bought refrigerated sugar cookie dough (use a 16-18 oz roll). Press the dough to an 11-inch round on prepared pizza pan, then bake 15 to 20 minutes at 375°F or until edges are light brown and center is just set. Continue with recipe as written.
