This fruit is a simple and beautiful fruit pizza! A soft sugar cookie crust with a cream cheese frosting and topped with assorted sliced fruits. If you like or love cookies then this fruit pizza is for you. On the other hand, if you don’t like cookies you might want to try this recipe and see if you would like it because it is delicious.
For the sugar used in this recipe, you can adjust to your taste/preference. You can use more or less that’s the good thing about homemade food. I used kiwi, strawberry, seedless grape, red plum fruits. You can use any fruits of your choice.
After mixing the dough you need to chill it, if not the dough won’t hold up and it will spread over when baking, so put that into consideration. If you don’t want too much of frosting you can cut the recipe into two. When you’re measuring the flour make sure it is level and not packed this is very important when baking, you want to use a spoon to scoop the flour and make sure it is leveled.
You might want to try;
- For Crust
- 1.5 Cup All-purpose flour
- ½ Cup Unsalted Butter (1 stick @room temperature)
- ½ Cup Granulated Sugar
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla extract
- 1.5 Cornstarch
- 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
- ¼ Teaspoon Salt
- 8 oz. Cream cheese room temperature
- ¼ Cup Unsalted Butter @ room temperature
- ¼ Cup Confectioners’/powder sugar (or more)
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla extract
- 1 Tablespoon Whole milk (optional)
- Assorted fruits (I used kiwi, strawberry, red plums, seedless green grape)
Use a stand mixer with a paddle or a hand-held mixer to cream butter until creamy, add sugar and continue to cream until light and fluffy.
Add egg, vanilla extract, and continue to mix until all light and fluffy.
Whisk all the dry ingredients; flour, baking soda, cornstarch, and salt.
Gently add the dry ingredients into the butter mixture.
Scoop the dough into a plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. You can refrigerate more than that. Don’t skip this step because the dough will spread or won’t hold up if you bake without chilling it first.
At the final 15 minutes of chilling the dough preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease a pizza pan with cooking spray or butter, then sprinkle sugar over it.
On a worktop sprinkle with flour, roll out the dough and gently place on the greased pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until when the dough is brown on the edge. Mine was done to my satisfaction at 18 minutes mark.
You don’t want to over bake so the dough doesn’t come out hard.
You can see the close-up look of the edge.
While the dough is baking, mix the frosting by creaming the cheese and butter using a hand mixer on medium speed until smooth about 1 minute.
Add the confectioners’/powder sugar and continue to mix.
Add the vanilla extract and mix. If the frosting is too thick use a tablespoon of milk to thin out. Chill the frosting while the dough is baking.
After baking, bring the crust to the room temperature then place in the refrigerator for about 10-15 minutes.
While the crust is chilling, cut up the fruits.
Bring the crust out and decorate by spreading the frosting over the crust then the fruits.
You can alternate the fruits as you desire.
Slice and enjoy.
