This easily customizable fruit pizza is made with a baked sugar cookie crust, sweet cream cheese frosting, a variety of sliced fruits, and a fruit juice glaze.
Fruit Pizza Crust & Toppings ‣ 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour ‣ 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened ‣ 1/2 cup powdered sugar ‣ 2 1/2 cup assorted fruit, any type Cream Cheese Frosting ‣ 8 ounce cream cheese, softened ‣ 1/2 cup granulated sugar ‣ 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Fruit Juice Glaze ‣ 1 cup fruit juice, * ‣ 3/4 cup granulated sugar ‣ 2 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch ‣ 1 teaspoon lemon juice
In a large bowl, toss in the flour, butter, and powdered sugar. You can use a spatula or hand mixer to break up the butter, but once it’s crumbled, reach your hands in and knead the dough until all dry ingredients are incorporated with the butter, form a firm dough ball.
Spray a round baking dish (typically 9 to 12 inches wide) with cooking spray, then place the dough ball inside. Press the dough into an even layer while also creating a small lip along the sides (3/4 inch in height is good). Once done, bake!
Using a stand mixer (or hand mixer + large bowl), whip together the frosting by mixing the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extra until smooth. Set the frosting aside for now.
In a small saucepan, add the fruit juice, sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice, cooking and stirring until a thick glaze forms. Remove the saucepan from heat and allow the glaze to cool while you assemble the fruit pizza.
Start off putting the fruit pizza together by frosting the top of the sugar cookie crust.
Place the fruit on top of the frosting, creating decorative patterns.
Finish up by pouring the glaze on top, smoothing it out to cover all of the fruit.
