This Rainbow Fruit Pizza Recipe is one of those treats guaranteed to bring smiles to the faces of those you love! Well, maybe not guaranteed but it tends to be a fun, happy, delightful dessert. It’s hard to eat a slice of brightly colored sugar cookie without feeling a bit better about things, right? Especially with juicy, sweet fruit in shades of the rainbow! An easy cookie crust and simple frosting makes this a delicious treat to satisfy any sweet tooth.

We love serving this fruit pizza recipe for St. Patrick’s Day, but it could easily make a perfect birthday cake or spring time treat. Let me know in the comments when you like to serve fruit pizza. So yummy!

EASY COOKIE CRUST

The best part about this delightful dessert is how EASY it is to make! Sure you can make a homemade cookie crust (try this Perfect Sugar Cookie recipe or this Lemon Sugar Cookie recipe if you want to go that route). OR you can pop open a can of pre-made sugar cookie dough. I love using Pillsbury sugar cookie dough, especially when I need a sweet dessert super quickly.

FRUIT PIZZA FROSTING

In order to let the sweetness of the fruit take center stage for this recipe, don’t use regular buttercream frosting. Opt for something a little less sweet, but still fluffy and tasty and you’ll love the creamy combination! Here’s all you need:

  • A couple of cups of whipped topping. You can use regular Cool Whip, or even the low fat or sugar free versions.
  • Vanilla pudding mix. You will be amazed at how much flavor the vanilla mix gives to this topping. So rich and creamy, and absolutely delicious with your fruit.
  • A little bit of milk to thin out the creamy mixture.

Whip it all together with a hand mixer until it’s light and fluffy. Simple, sweet but not too sweet, and so yummy!

WHAT KIND OF FRUIT TO USE ON A FRUIT PIZZA

I love making this fruit pizza into a rainbow, especially if I’m serving it for St. Patrick’s Day. But you can easily create any combination and pattern of fruit you like. This is such a versatile recipe! But here’s some of my favorite fruits to use:

  • Sliced strawberries
  • Cantaloupe (I like to use a small cookie cutter to make star shapes for a whimsical design)
  • Fresh pineapple (you can use canned chunks too if you like)
  • Sliced kiwi
  • Blueberries
  • Blackberries

You could also use raspberries, peaches, sliced grapes, watermelon, cherries, bananas, whatever you like!

Ingredients

  • For the Crust

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • For the Topping
  • strawberries 5 medium
  • cantaloupe slices cut out with a star cookie cutter
  • pineapple
  • kiwi 1
  • blueberries
  • blackberries

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spread out the cookie dough on a parchment lined baking sheet or a pizza stone (if you want to serve it on a nice plate, it would work best to put it on two pieces of parchment paper that can be pulled out after cooling.)
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the cookie is golden brown. Let cool completely.
  • Using a handheld mixer on medium, mix the cool whip, pudding mix, and milk together until smooth and fluffy, about three minutes. Spread out on the cooled cookie.
  • Add the strawberries, then cantaloupe, then pineapple, then kiwi, then blueberries, then blackberries.
  • Cut and serve!

      Thank you so much Bonnie!!

    I have made one with a shortbread bottom, but never thought to make one with a sugar cookie. Also if you haven’t made a veggie pizza using the Pillsbury pizza crust you need to. The sauce is a mix of cream cheese, sour cream and ranch dressing powder topped with cauliflower, broccoli, peppers, green onions and grated carrots for cheese. Make sure you chop all your veggies really small. I made two for a house warming and there was only 10 people and both disappeared lol.

      Sounds delicious! Thanks Amanda!

    What’s in a name? My grandson started 4th grade last week. His new teacher, prior to realizing he was in her class, had assured another little boy that there were no other Ethans in her class. Wrong! When our Ethan introduced himself, she teased, “Oh, no! We can’t have 2 Ethans. You’ll have to go to another room.” Joke. Right?
    The other day after school, he announced his name has been changed to Bob! They have two Ethan’s in his class, so now he’s Bob.

  3. Laura says

    So pretty & sounds delicious! I want to bring it to my daughter’s preschool potluck in the morning. How would this work if I made it the night before? Any idea how long it should be out of fridge before serving?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Thanks Laura! I would make the cookie crust and then frost and add the fruit the next morning.
