“this is too dry”

“I think you burnt the bottom” (yes, even food bloggers!)

but of course the comment I want to hear is, “This is AMAZING!” I asked Ryan to try this fruit pizza and you know what he said?

He said there is too much cookie crust in this fruit pizza.

I’m a firm believer that fruit pizza crust shouldn’t be too crunchy. No one wants to eat burnt or overly crispy pizza crust, so I feel like the same rule applies for a cookie crust. You want to bake it to perfection, where it’s firm enough to slice and pick up but soft and fluffy when you eat it :)

The topping on fruit pizza is traditionally cream cheese based but to cut down on the amount of tang, I like to add powdered sugar. You’ll need a little bit of liquid to thin out the “sauce”. You could use milk or heavy cream but I love to use coffee creamer!

A little bit of coffee creamer works great to make the topping not too thick and more spreadable. Plus the creamer adds a bit of sweetness too, or if you use a flavored creamer, that flavor will shine through in the topping! I used International Delight’s Sweet Cream creamer because hello there’s a picture of ice cream on the container and it tastes amazing!

The best part about fruit pizza is that you get to choose the fruit! I loaded this pizza with kiwi, pineapple, mandarin oranges, grapes, blueberries, blackberries and strawberries.

Other great additions could include peaches, raspberries, bananas, nectarines, mango, and even some shredded coconut :)

I used a 17 by 12 inch pan, so this is a great recipe for a crowd!
