Fruit Pizza

I have a yummy summertime recipe to share with you today. I originally got this recipe for Fruit Pizza from my sister-in-law, Barbara. Thanks, Barb, we love this one.

Here's what you need to make it: refrigerated crescent roll dough, cream cheese, sugar, pineapple tidbits, strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, bananas and cornstarch. Actually, you can put whatever fruit you choose on it, there are no rules here. By the way, I have way more strawberries, bananas, pineapple and blueberries here than I really need. I'm going to make a fruit salad with the leftovers.

Start by unrolling your tubes of crescent roll dough onto an ungreased jelly roll pan. 

Like this. Then press the seams together and creep it up the sides a bit. I didn't get a picture of that because, well, I had greasy hands and I'm an OCD freak.

Then bake it according to the package instructions and it will look something like this.

Strain the pineapple tidbits, making sure to save the juice.

Mix 2 Tablespoons of pineapple juice and 1/2 C sugar in with the cream cheese. Mix it well. I cheated and used my stand mixer.

Start plopping it around your cooled pizza crust.

Then smooth it all out.

Now for the fun part, you get to start putting the fruit on the pizza. The order is really not important. Start with what you want. I chose bananas.

Next I cut the skin off my Kiwi with a paring knife.

And sliced them up. Aren't they pretty?

I still have lots of room left . . .

. . . for blueberries and strawberries . . .

. . . and pineapple.

Once all your fruit is on, or while you are baking the crust, you'll need to prepare the glaze drizzle. Take the remaining pineapple juice, add 2 Tablespoons of corn starch, and cook it over medium low heat, stirring often, until the mixture thickens.

I don't have a picture for the next step, but I put my very thick glaze into a snack baggie, cut a small piece of the corner off, and drizzled it around the pizza.

It looks good enough to eat, doesn't it? Believe me, it was.



  1. Yum. Yum. Yum.

    AGain, I think I could pull this off.

  2. yummmmyyyyy! Hmmmm who could I make this for...or what can I make this for??

  3. This is such a great recipe. You can also use a sugar cookie for the crust. :) If you're looking to make it sweeter than it already is lol.

  4. I've been peeking in on your blog and love it, especially all of the cute recipe cards! Thanks for all of them!

  5. Looks delicious! We always made ours with sugar cookie dough and I've never done the yummy glaze. I'll have to try that!

  6. Yum!

    I liked the comment above about using sugar cookie dough... that might be good too!

    (now I"m hungry just looking at your blog.)

  7. Wow! I could actually pass this off as "healthy" food. Think I'll try it...

  8. I LOVE to make fruit pizza, and it has been such a long time since I have done this. I usually use sugar cookie dough for the crust.
    I think I may make this for DH and I as a late night snack tonight!

  9. This might be TMI, but my heart actually flutters when I see that you've posted a new, scrumptious recipe with it's adorable recipe card!! YEAH!! Have a super sweet Sunday!! Erin

  11. Im a new follower and I am just in love with your blog, you have such great things! this looks amazing. Thank you!

  12. This is a little different than the recipe I have, so I'm going to try it and compare. The one I have uses the packaged sugar cookie dough for the crust of the fruit pizza, then you make the cream cheese filling a little different, but still good. Maybe it will just be nice to have two good recipes for fruit can never have enough!

  13. I might even be able to do this without screwing it up!! I might just find myself running off to the store this afternoon!!

  14. I normally make this with the sugar cookie or even a choc chip cookie as the crust and drizzle it with chocolate. Yes, I have a sweet tooth. :)
    I should probably try it with the croissant instead. :) Thanks for this recipe card.

  15. This looks so delicious!!!!!

  16. That looks soooo tasty! How do you make those super cute recipe cards?

  17. Yum, Yum, Yum! Thanks for the great recipe!

  18. So thats how your supposed to cut up a kiwi! LOL : )

  19. Okay you know I had to check out this pizza too! I am so going to try this! It looks absolutely scrumptious, mmmmm cream cheese!

    Can I serve this for dinner?

    Honestly, I don't know how you do it all! :o) BTW, how goes the back to "teacher" thing? Did I miss anything?

  20. What a great recipe, and thank you for the step-by-step directions! The pics are awesome too!
