This is one of my husband’s favorite desserts. It’s easy, delicious and super adaptable to personal preferences. We like strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, bananas and kiwi’s but you can add whatever fruits are your favorite to make it the perfect fruit pizza for your taste. Other tasty additions would be mandarin oranges, raspberries, blackberries or super ripe peaches.
This is a great dessert to bring to summer barbeques and is always a hit. What’s not to like with a sugar cookie crust, creamy sweet frosting and fresh, seasonal fruit? If your kids love to help in the kitchen, this is a great recipe to get them involved. They can help press the cookie dough in the pizza pan, spread the frosting and arrange the fruit on top. It’s especially great if they are picky eaters because they will be more likely to eat the fruit if they helped put it together.
If you want to add bananas to the pizza, I recommend waiting until just before serving so that they do not brown. Please try this easy fruit pizza, you won’t regret it!
