A classic summer dessert and cookout staple, this delicious dish is a favorite of mine! We made the crust gluten-free with the help of Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten-Free Flour (my go-to gf flour) and it is also dairy-free! Cannot wait for you to enjoy this one!
How do You Keep Fruit Pizza From Getting Soggy
The best way to keep it from getting soggy is to assemble it as close as possible to serving time. When the frosting sits on the cookie crust, there isn’t much you can do about it eventually getting a little soggy.
Can You Make Fruit Pizza Ahead of Time
I don’t recommend making a fully assembled fruit pizza ahead of time. Rather, you can easily make all of the components of a fruit pizza ahead of time: sugar cookie crust, cream cheese frosting and cut up fruit. Then it will take about 10 minutes or so to assemble everything – easy!
How Long is Fruit Pizza Good For
While fruit pizza is best when served immediately, it can last in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days.
How to Make Fruit Pizza
Step One: Add butter and sugar to a medium mixing bowl.
Step Two: using hand mixer to combine.
Step Three: Add your egg/milk mixture.
Step Four: combine those as well.
Step Five: combine your dry ingredients.
Step Six: Add your dry ingredients to your wet ingredients and mix by hand.
Step Seven: Form the dough into a disk and wrap in wax paper. Store in fridge for at least 3 hours or overnight.
Step Eight: Roll out into an 11 inch circle (between two pieces of wax paper – sprinkle dough with flour first) and then remove the top piece of wax paper. Flip the dough over onto a flat, greased cooking sheet (preferably without sides so you can slide off the cookie after cooking). And bake!
Step Nine: add your cream cheese frosting.
Step Ten: And add your fruit design!

Fruit Pizza – a delicious fruit pizza recipe that is made with a gluten free friendly crust, the most delicious frosting and gorgeous design!
Sugar Cookie Crust
- 1/4 cup plant-baased butter, softened (regular butter works too)
- 1/2 cup organic cane sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk
- 1 1/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill 1-1 gluten free flour
- 1/4 teaspoon xanthum gum
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Dairy-Free Cream Cheese Frosting:
- 8oz dairy free plain cream cheese
- 1/4 cup vegan butter, room temp
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 cup powered powdered sugar
- 8–10 strawberries, sliced
- 1 cup blueberries
- 2–3 mandarin oranges
- 1–2 cups pineapple chunks
- 2–3 kiwi, halved and sliced
- 1/4 cup blackberries, halved
Cookie Dough Crust:
- Add softened butter and sugar to medium bowl and beat with hand mixer until creamy.
- In a small bowl combine egg and unsweetened almond milk; whisk.
- Add beaten egg mixture to butter mixture and beat until combined.
- Combine dry ingredients (flour, xanthum gum, salt, baking powder, baking soda and nutmeg) in medium mixing bowl; whisk.
- Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir to combine.
- Use hands to mold into flat disk and then wrap in wax paper for 3 hours or overnight.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Lay down piece of wax paper and sprinkle with gluten-free flour. Place your dough on top of that and sprinkle to the top of the dough with more flour (this will help prevent the wax paper from sticking to the dough – you can also spray the wax paper with a little oil). Place another piece of wax paper on top. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough between the two pieces of wax paper until it makes an 11 inch circle that is approximately 1/8-1/4 inch thick.
- Peel off top layer of wax paper and then carefully flip the dough onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Carefully peel off the last layer of wax paper (which should now be on top).
- Bake on center rack for 10-12 minutes or until outer edges are just barely turning brown.
- Remove from oven and let cool.
Dairy-Free Cream Cheese Frosting:
- Add cream cheese and vegan butter to medium mixing bowl. Beat with hand mixer until fluffy.
- Add vanilla, almond milk and about 1/3 of the powered sugar. Beat until combined.
- Continue adding the powdered sugar a little at a time until it is fully combine.
- Arrange an outer layer of sliced strawberries, followed by oranges, pineapple, kiwi and then blueberries and blackberries in the center – or create your own design!!!
- Non-Gluten-Free: If you aren’t concerned with gluten, feel free to use regular flour as a 1-1 substitute, but you can omit the xantham gum.
- Rolling out dough: You can also roll out your dough on a flat baking sheet so you don’t have to worry about flipping it over (which can be intimidating). Just be sure you are lightly greasing your cookie sheet beforehand!
- Serving Suggestion: it is highly recommended to assemble the pizza right before serving. If the crust sits with the frosting on it for too long, it will begin to get soggy.
- 4th of July: Feel free to only use red and blue fruit (blueberries and strawberries) to make it a more festive fruit pizza for the 4th of July!
- Cookies: feel free to make fruit pizza cookies instead if you want! Just roll the cookie dough out and cut out into small circles and bake for 8 minutes at 350.
