Fruit Pizza Ingredients & Supplies
Start by gathering your ingredients and supplies. For this fruit pizza we used a 9 inch tart pan with a removable bottom.
You will need crushed graham crackers and butter for the crust. Use a food processor or blender to crush your graham crackers. Or you can go old-school and pop them in a zip-top plastic baggie, remove the air, and break them up with a rolling pin.
For the cream cheese filling you will need: cream cheese, sugar, and frozen whipped topping.
As for the fruit topping, feel free to use whatever fresh fruit you prefer.
While we topped our fruit pizza with kiwi, strawberries, and coconut flakes, you can easily customize the toppings on your fruit pizza, just as you would customize a regular pizza with your favorite toppings.
A red, white, and blue fruit pizza with strawberries and blueberries would be perfect for Memorial Day or the 4th of July.
For other occasions, just use your favorite combination of toppings.
Dessert Pizza Topping Ideas:
- mandarin oranges (canned)
- coconut flakes
How to Make Fruit Pizza
Start by mixing together graham cracker crumbs and butter.
Then, press the graham cracker mixture into your tart pan to form the crust.
Next, use a stand mixer to mix the whipped topping, cream cheese, and sugar.
Spread the cream cheese filling evenly into the pan and allow to chill in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.
Once chilled, top your dessert pizza with fresh fruit.
Feel free to have the little ones help decorate – they will love putting the toppings on their “pizza”!
