Brownie Fruit Pizza
Fruit pizza is alright, but brownie fruit pizza is out of this world because it’s pretty much a brownie with cream cheese frosting topped with your favorite fruit. Chocolate makes all the difference.
An aside from the brownie fruit pizza, do you see those beautiful wood floors? Well, it’s actually not our floor, we have cream fake looking tile. These are left over floor boards from my mom’s kitchen, but they are my absolute favorite photography prop.
Of course brownie fruit pizza isn’t really fruit pizza unless it’s round, but you could definitely make this recipe in a cake pan. Actually that’s what I did because I didn’t have a round pan large enough to fit the entire batter.
The 2 round fruit pizzas you see in the pictures I cut out from the square pan using a knife.
Here’s what the square pizza looked like.
Square vs. round fruit pizza – really it all tastes the same! But I definitely didn’t add enough fruit to my pizza, I only cut up half of what the recipe called for, but for next time I know.
- 1 box of brownie mix (plus all the ingredients listed on the back)
- 8 oz cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1-2 bananas
- 1 to 1 1/2 cups diced strawberries
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Grease a 12-inch round (rimmed) pizza pan with nonstick spray; set aside. You can also use a cake pan, cookie sheet with a rim, or disposable round pan.
- In a medium bowl, combine the brownie mix and ingredients listed on the back of the box.
- Mix until just combined.
- Pour evenly into the greased pan.
- Bake as directed on the box, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- While the brownies are baking, in a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth.
- Also prepare the fruit, slicing and washing.
- Remove the pan from the oven and allow to completely cool in the pan on a wire rack.
- Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the top of the cooled brownies.
- Add the sliced fruit to the pizza, making sure it is completely dry.
- Serve and enjoy!
If you are not serving the fruit pizza right away, consider adding the fruit right before serving, as it can release natural juices and make the frosting slightly watery.

We’re heading back to Minnesota for a visit pretty soon and I am getting real excited to see our families. I am hoping to spoil them a little bit with some of my favorite recipes from the blog.
