How to Make Fruit Pizza

make Cinnamon Sugar Crust

The key to makeing a delicious crust for your fruit pizza is to jazz it up and crisp it up so it doesn’t get soggy from the cream cheese filling!

To do this, whip together your butter, cinnamon, and sugar. Then, slather the cinnamon sugar butter on your pizza crust and pop it in the oven and bake it at 400ºF for 6-8 minutes. It is VERY important that you check on your crust every couple minutes to make sure it isn’t over baking.

You want the crust to be golden brown, not burnt! After you pull the crust out of the oven, let it cool for 5 minutes before adding any toppings.

make Cream Cheese Filling

While the cinnamon sugar crust is cooling, whip together your cream cheese filling. This is a two step process! First you whip together your cream cheese and honey in a large bowl until it is thick, creamy, and combined. Then you set it aside.

Then, in a separate bowl, you whip the heavy cream and vanilla on high until you have made whipped cream. You know it’s ready when peaks form.

To make your cream cheese filling, you pour your whipped cream into the cream cheese and honey mixture and carefully fold the two together. Being careful not to flatten or deflate your whipped cream.

When your filling is done, slather it on top of your pizza crust.

assemble Fruit topping

The fruit is the star of the show! You can choose whatever fruit topping you would like, but just be sure one side of your fruit has a flat side so it can lay flat side down on the pizza. Top that cream cheese filling with fruit and enjoy!
