About Brownie Fruit Pizza
With a vibrantly beautiful presentation, this brownie fruit pizza is simple to make, easy to customize, and has a classic flavor combination (chocolate, frosting, and fruit!) that’s always a hit with family and friends.
What fruit should you use?
This recipe calls for using a classic combination of strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries, but you could also try:
What other ingredients will you need?
To make things easy, this recipe includes using a box of fudge brownie mix (or whipping up a batch of your favorite homemade brownies.)
No matter which method you choose, both types of brownies will require additional ingredients to make, and because this can vary depending on the brand you buy or the recipe you use, any extras you may need are not included in the recipe below. I know this isn’t ideal, but it’s done to lessen confusion and guesswork on what the many cooks out there might use.
So before you begin making this fruit pizza, check the back of the box(es) you buy to ensure you have the additional ingredients on hand. This will typically include baking staples such as:
- Water or milk (TIP: water can be substituted for milk or chocolate milk for a more flavorful brownie base.)
Can you use cool whip instead?
Yes, you certainly can!
It all comes down to personal tastes and preferences, but Cool Whip would work just fine in place of the homemade cream cheese frosting in this recipe.
How should brownie fruit pizza be stored?
Due to the cream cheese frosting, this brownie fruit pizza should be stored in the refrigerator until ready to serve and eat.
Can you make this in advance?
Yes, brownie fruit pizza can be made in advance – but there’s a catch.
For best results, prepare the brownie base, cream cheese frosting, and sliced fruit, but hold off on assembling the fruit pizza until ready to serve. Store each item separately (in sealed/covered containers in the refrigerator) until ready to use, up to 24 hours in advance.
How long is brownie fruit pizza good for?
Once prepared and decorated, brownie fruit pizza can be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to three days.
Can you freeze brownie fruit pizza?
Yes, you totally can!
Once prepared and decorated, brownie fruit pizza can be stored in a sealed container or freezer bag in the freezer for up to one to two months.
