Tips for making the best fruit pizza:
Can I make fruit pizza in advance?
yes! If you need to create it in advance, it’s better to create the components and store them separately. Bake the crust, let it cool and then wrap it in plastic wrap. Make frosting and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Cut the fruit and store it separately in the refrigerator to avoid bleeding the coloring. Some fruits look and taste better if they are cut just before assembly.
What is the shelf life of fruit pizza?
Fruit pizza can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Note that the crust will soften and the fruit will dry out a little.
Can this be made with dairy-free toppings?
yes! Whipped coconut milk makes a delicious dairy-free alternative. You can also use frozen whipped topping.
Other fruit pizza crust alternatives:
If you’re short on time, you can use premade cookie dough for the crust.
Can I make fruit pizza by itself?
yes! Great for kids and parties! Scoop a 1/4 cup size ball of oatmeal cookie crust mix and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Note that you don’t want to pre-bake the dough as it will lose its stability. Frost and top with fruit if desired.
Other topping suggestions for fruit pizza:
After adding the fruit to the pizza, spread the apricot jelly. Add a beautiful sheen to your fruit! Just melt 2 tablespoons of jelly in the microwave for a few seconds to soften it. Use a pastry brush to carefully brush the fruit. This will also help prevent the fruit from drying out.
You can also top your pizza with almond slices, toasted coconut, or a chocolate drizzle.
