15+ Ways To Make A Fruit Pizza
Here’s a fun treat that couldn’t be easier to make! Fruit pizzas are a highlight at potlucks and picnics, bridal and baby showers or make it as a special dessert for your family “just because”. The crust varies depending on the recipe but it’s typically either a homemade dough made from scratch or cans of refrigerated cookie dough (a box of cookie mix can be used too). The “sauce” is usually softened cream cheese but there are a few other options too, and then it’s all topped off with colorful sliced fresh or canned fruit. Sometimes a sweet glaze is used but try drizzling melted chocolate over top for an extra tasty treat.
Here is a collection of recipes that I’ve handpicked from around the ‘net, so many ideas and they’re all sure to impress, have fun!
