It is quick and super simple and is a total crowd-pleaser. Ready to give it a try already? Here’s everything you need to know before you do!
What Other Fruits Can I Add?
For this recipe, I’ve used the classics- strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and bananas. They’re super versatile and complement each other’s tastes. That doesn’t mean you need to stick to these. You can experiment and add in many other fruits too.
Just remember to choose fruits that are soft yet firm and those that can hold their shape and structure well. Avoid fruits that are too juicy or watery, since they’ll blend into the yogurt mixture and turn the entire fruit pizza into a soggy mess.
Tips & Tricks
This sugar cookie fruit pizza is incredibly easy to make, but you can’t say no to some actionable tips and tricks to make sure you nail the recipe.
- Remember to let the cookie base cool down completely before you spread the yogurt on it. Spreading the yogurt on the hot base will cause it to seep into the base.
- If you don’t have yogurt, you can make a quick swap with cream cheese. Choose a low-fat variety if you’re looking to keep your weight in check. Cream cheese tastes incredible when paired with most of these fruits.
- To make post-baking cleanup easier and to minimize the mess, use parchment paper to line the sheet pan or use a nonstick cooking spray.
- If you’re using a cream cheese layer, add a bit of lemon zest into the mix to lend it a nice tangy flavor and to bring out the taste of the berries and the other fruits.
- Let the finished fruit pizza chill in the refrigerator for an hour before you serve it.
Storage Hacks for the Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizza
This dessert isn’t one of those dishes that you can make ahead of time. You can get the base ready beforehand, but that’s pretty much it. You’ll need to assemble it right before you want to serve it.
If you’ve got leftovers, you can store them in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. It probably won’t last beyond that. Just remember to wrap it in cling film or place it into an airtight container to retain maximum freshness.
