Introduction: Mini Fruit Pizzas

Picture of Mini Fruit Pizzas

For New Years Eve, my mom decided to make fruit pizza.  She got out the sugar cookie dough and started cutting it up.  I wondered why since she was making a pizza and she said it was easier to get the dough flattened like that.  I then suggested we make mini fruit pizzas instead.  So we did and I thought I'd share with you.



NOTE: So I made these yesterday and brought them into work today.  I found out these do not keep well.  The liquid from the fruit soaks into the cookies and starts to disintegrate them.  Try to prepare these as close to the time you are going to eat them as possible.  You can bake the cookies ahead of time and possibly frost them, but wait to add the fruit.

Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies

Ingredients:

  • 16 oz Strawberry (estimate)
  • 9 oz Blueberries (estimate)
  • 11 oz can of Mandarine Oranges
  • 4-5 Kiwifruits (estimate)
  • Sugar Cookie Dough
  • 2 tsp. Vanilla
  • 1/2 c. Sugar
  • 1 pkg. Cream Cheese - softened
  • Strawberry Sauce (optional)
  • You can use whatever fruits you want! Try out different combinations :)

I had to estimate how much of the kiwi, strawberries and blueberries I used because I prepared all of what I bought and just put the extra together into a nice fruit bowl.

Supplies:

Step 2: Cookie Crust

Make or buy your sugar cookie dough.

Cut into cookie sizes and bake according to your directions.

Step 3: Sauce

Time to mix up your sauce/frosting.

Take your cream cheese, sugar and vanilla and mix them all together.

Spread on cookies now or wait until before you want to serve them.

Step 4: Fruit Topping

Prepare your fruits.

Mandarine Oranges:
  • Drain them.  If you would like you can tear them apart now.  I waited and tore them up as I put them on my pizzas.
Blueberries:
  • Wash them.  You can cut them in half if you don't want huge blueberries on your pizzas.
Strawberries:
  • Wash them.
  • Cut off the stems and cut them as you would like.  I cut them into slices and then cut those slices in half.
Kiwifruit:
  • Wash them.  I don't know if you have to, but I like to just in case and those little hairs were getting everywhere.
  • Cut off each end.
  • Using a spoon, dig it in the kiwi as close to the skin as you can.
  • Go all the way through and gently drag it around the kiwi as close to the skin as possible to separate it.
  • (When I did this the skin would tear, but that seemed to make it easier for me so I just ended up tearing it purposely after the first one.
  • Cut as desired.  I cut it into slices and then cut those slices into four pieces (like a pizza!)

Step 5: Fruit Toppings. Assemble!

Time to put your fruits on your little pizzas!  Just follow along with the pictures to see how I did it, but you can decorate your pizzas however you want.

For the mandarin oranges, I used about a piece for each mini pizza and just tore it up and put it on.

Top it off with some strawberry sauce if you want or serve them plain!

Enjoy!

This batch was made earlier in the day on New Years Eve and kept till that night.  I'm not sure if my fruit that I used this time was just more juicy or why they chose to torment me by getting soggy!

I am thinking that this would have been a great idea when my kids had friends over. They could each decorate their own to their taste. Might have to try this at next family get-together.

I love the healthy idea #keep America fit

Wow!! That looks really "sweet"(excuse the pun). Its a really cool idea and i am looking forward to trying them myself...

Penolopy Bulnick (author)Density2013-01-28

:D I hope you like them! And post a picture, if you can, when you make them!

Renee! (author)2013-01-27

We made these today, but added more like two tablespoons of sugar to the frosting because it was all already pretty sweet. They turned out awesome! Great idea.

Penolopy Bulnick (author)Renee!2013-01-28

Oh my those are the cutest! Thanks so much for posting a picture :)

shadowfeet (author)2013-01-23

Sucess! Mine don't look half as good as yours, but they taste good!!

Thanks for reminding me why I should get on Instructables more!

Tasting good is the most important thing! I'm glad I could lure you back to the site :)

mistyp (author)2013-01-21

Thanks for the tip about their longevity! They look adorable!

Penolopy Bulnick (author)mistyp2013-01-21

Thanks! Yeah, sometimes you learn the hard way :(

mistyp (author)Penolopy Bulnick2013-01-21

I think that's the beauty of Instructables--we can learn the hard way and work things out, and then share so everyone else doesn't have to go through all the mistakes :-)

Penolopy Bulnick (author)mistyp2013-01-21

That is so so true! I swear most of my projects go amazingly wrong when working on them, but at least I know what to tell people not to do :)

ThamarBerber (author)2013-01-17

At first I was confused, because of the title, and what it really is. But I will definitely try this, as I 'suspect' the combination fruit-cream cheese is very, very interesting...!

Thanks! What did you expect when you first read the title? I wasn't sure quite what to name it.

Reading the title and the 'Ible' I really expected pizzas. :D
Than reading the ingredients, I was really confused! LOL!

Daniel Domingos (author)2013-01-16

It looks very good!
I'll try, because I love the fruit you used.

Thanks! The fruit is very good! There are so many fruits you can use but I didn't want to overwhelm the cookie so I just went with the ones I liked the best.

HollyMann (author)2013-01-15

They look really good - the photo is beautiful too! Yum!

Thank you! I always have trouble getting the pictures just right.

So much fresh fruit... these look delicious!

Thank you, they are pretty good :)

NIkheel94 (author)2013-01-12

When i first saw this, i started to laugh for some unknown reason but it looks delicious so i am definitely gonna make this.

I hope they taste great :) I'd love to know what fruits you try and I'm glad you laughed even if it is for no real reason. Laughing is such a fun thing and I think people should do it all the time just cause :)

GenAap (author)2013-01-11

Yummy!

Penolopy Bulnick (author)GenAap2013-01-18

HeavenBlueRose (author)2013-01-11

Very nice. They remind me of fruit tarts :D

Thanks! That sounds tasty too. Fruit is just so good and semi-healthy :)

A slice of this looks like just the thing I need to cheer me up on a cold and wet winter day. Bright colors and happy flavors, yum!

Thank you.

Agreed! I feel good just looking at them! So many colors :)

sunshiine (author)2013-01-11

These are so pretty and I know they must be good! I am not a pizza lover unless it is fruit pizza! Now I am hungry!

Thank you! They are so tasty!

RollerScrapper (author)2013-01-10

Yum! My favorite desserts have fresh fruit on top!

Agreed!

PitStoP (author)2013-01-10

I like a little garlic and oregano on my pizza but I don't think I will add it to this one..=)
The colors look so good to the eyes.

Penolopy Bulnick (author)PitStoP2013-01-10

Thanks! Garlic and oregano are good, but yeah, don't think they'd be too tasty on this pizza ;)

wold630 (author)2013-01-10

Beautiful presentation!

Penolopy Bulnick (author)wold6302013-01-10

Thanks! I'm so picky, but I really like how they turned out!
