Fruit Pizza

Updated: Oct 5

This colorful pizza combines a shortbread cookie crust, cream cheese filling, fresh fruit topping, and lemon-pineapple glaze for a summer treat that tastes as good as it looks!


Use any assortment of fruit (i.e. strawberries, raspberries, mandarins, blueberries, kiwis, peaches, pineapple, mango, blackberries, etc.) and arrange in a pattern or design of your choosing.

Although optional, the lemon-pineapple glaze will protect the fruit from oxidization, enhance the flavor of the fruit, and keep the fruit appearing fresh and natural.

This fruit pizza is a favorite in my family. So each time I make it, I get creative and arrange the fruit differently.


Ingredients

Shortbread Cookie Crust

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup confectioners' sugar

  • ½ cup butter, cold

Cream Cheese Layer

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened

  • ½ cup granulated sugar

  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

  • Fruit of your choice (i.e. strawberries, raspberries, mandarins, blueberries, kiwis, peaches, pineapple, mango, blackberries, etc.), sliced or cut to your liking

Lemon-Pineapple Glaze

  • 5 tsp cornstarch

  • 1 ¼ cups unsweetened pineapple juice

  • 1 tsp lemon juice


Directions

Shortbread Cookie Crust

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour and confectioners' sugar. Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter until crumbly. Press the mixture onto an ungreased 12-inch pizza pan. Bake the crust at 350°F for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Allow the crust to cool in the pan on a wire rack.

Cream Cheese Layer

  1. In a small bowl using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Spread the mixture over the cooled crust. Arrange the fruit on top.

Pineapple Glaze

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the cornstarch, pineapple juice, and lemon juice until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Allow the glaze to cool slightly. Drizzle the glaze over the fruit. Refrigerate the pizza until chilled before serving.
