Recipe: EASY & Kid-friendly Dessert Fruit Pizza!




This just might possibly be the BEST kid-friendly dessert ever! Just a few ingredients, not a lot of manual labor and the kids can help put it together!

Easy Fruit Pizza for Kids


  • 1 Tube of Sugar Cookie Dough (18 oz)
  • 8 oz package of Cream Cheese
  • 8 oz container of Whipped Topping
  • 2 cups of Fruit -I used a mix of strawberries, kiwis and blueberries but you can use whatever looks good in the fruit section! I have even used canned peaches and it was delish!


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Roll out cookie dough to 1/4″ thickness on a pizza pan, cookie pan, pizza stone or whatever you have!
  3. Bake for 10-14 minutes depending on the pan you used. My pizza stone takes a while longer, but it ends up being very moist-totally worth the extra few minutes!
  4. When it becomes a nice golden color around the edges, remove from oven and let cool. If you are in a time pinch (as I always seem to be!) a few minutes in the freezer does the trick!
  5. Meanwhile, mix the cream cheese and whipped topping on high until well blended.
  6. Smooth the cream mixture over the cooled giant cookie and then layer with fruit-my kids loved this part of course!

  4. What an awesome idea! I have such trouble getting my six year old to eat fruit, so maybe trying this would help. I am definitely going to give it a try :)

  5. This looks delicious! I love the use of fresh fruits!

  6. This is such a colorful and healthy alternative to regular pizza! My daughter and I both LOVE fruit so this would be the perfect recipe for lunch time or a snack.

    This looks like such a yummy, kid friendly treat! I never thought to combine fruit, cookies, and Cool Whip!!

  8. We have made this before, but never over the winter because the fruit wasn’t great out of season. I never thought to used canned fruit – brilliant! Thanks! :)

  9. Oh my, this looks super yummy. I know my seven year old and 11 year old would love to make this. Both are super fruit fans and of course pizza fans ;-)

  19. That looks so yummy – like one of those tarts you always see in the bakery with all the glistening fruit. My kids love dessert pizzas, but they only like the one with Nutella!

  20. This looks SO yummy. I have such a hard time getting my toddler to eat fruits that aren’t pureed. I would love to try this – especially in the summer when it’s so much easier to find fresh fruit!

  21. Yummy fruit on top. My son loves blueberries the best!! The whole thing looks great!

  22. This looks wonderful, I’m sure that mu family liked a lot!

  24. Heya i’m for the first time here. I found this board and I
    find It really useful & it helped me out a lot.
    I hope to give something back and help others like you
    helped me.

  25. This would be a really great dessert for my family since we’re dairy-free. I can see a few adaptations and everyone being able to enjoy this. I also like that it’s custom so everyone can have a hand in their “slice”.

  26. Fruit pizza’s always look so good but I’ve never tried one. I think with my New Years Resolutions that now might be a good time to try one :)

  27. This looks so yummy! My boys would LOVE making (and of course eating) this!!

  28. I love fruit pizza! I haven’t made it in a while but your post has inspired me to try again!
