Fruit pizza is an absolute summer classic, or at least it should be. And why not to serve it in bite-size portions?

Just look at these beautiful fruits. Almost all the colors of rainbow! I can eat them just like this for breakfast, lunch and dinner, no kidding. But today they serve way better purpose here.

Rainbow fruits...

What makes this particular fruit pizza so special? The short answer is the filling!

The long answer: creamy smooth, sweet and slightly tangy white chocolate cream cheese filling is the star of the show. That’s right, white chocolate cream cheese filling. Sounds delicious, doesn’t it?

Now, here’s a quick visual for super easy, soft sugar cookies. Usually sugar cookies are on crunchy side, but we are adding a little bit of cornstarch in the batter for softer texture.

The dough might seem like too sticky. Don’t worry though, after it’s chilled, it’ll be just right.

Mini Fruit Pizzas- Step-by-step

Then onto the filling… Couple of things I’d like to address here.

  • Make sure that your cream cheese is nice and soft for 100% smooth and creamy texture. And you’ll need the brick-style cream cheese here. (I like Philadelphia cream cheese.)
  • When selecting the white chocolate, buy the good stuff. Here is a great article about selecting good white chocolate.

And lastly, you can prepare each layer separately up to a day in advance and assemble right before serving.

Mini Fruit Pizzas

Summer classic dessert in bite-size! These mini fruit pizzas are built on simple soft sugar cookies and topped with white chocolate cream cheese filling and colorful fresh fruits.

Yield: 38

Ingredients:

For cookie crust:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon milk
For white chocolate cream cheese filling:
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate
  • 8oz cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
For topping:
  • Assorted fruits of your choice (See my notes below)

Directions:

  1. To make the cookies, whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt in a small bowl.
  2. In a mixing bowl with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar until fluffy.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla extract and continue to beat for another minute or two until well combined.
  4. Add half of dry ingredients, then stir in milk, and then remaining half of the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined, scraping the sides.
  5. The dough will be soft and slightly sticky. Wrap it into a plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour, or up to 2 days.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper, or silicone mat.
  7. On lightly floured surface, roll the chilled dough into 1/8-inches-thick circle.
  8. Cut out 2.5-inch circles. Continue to roll the leftover scrapes and cut out the small circles until you run out of the dough.
  9. Place the cookies on the prepared cookie sheets and bake for 10 minutes. (Slightly undercook them to get nice and soft “pizza crust”.) Cool completely on wire rack.
  10. While the cookies are cooling, prepare the cream cheese filling. Heat the heavy cream in the microwave for 30 seconds.
  11. Place the white chocolate in a small bowl and add the warm cream over it.
  12. Let it stand for a minute and stir until chocolate completely melted and the mixture is smooth. (Microwave the mixture for 15 seconds if the chocolate is not completely melted.)
  13. In a mixing bowl with whisk attachment, beat the cream cheese until fluffy.
  14. Add powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and white chocolate mixture. Beat for 3-5 minutes, or until the filling is thickened and smooth.
  15. For topping, put the fruits into thin slices, if needed.
  16. To assemble the mini fruit pizzas, spread about a tablespoon of cream cheese filling on each cookie with a butter knife. Arrange the fruits on top. That's it!

*You can choose any fruits you have on hand, or you like. For beautiful presentation, choose different colored fruits, such as strawberries, blueberries, kiwis, mango, and more.

  5. Love this idea!  My kids love fruit pizza.

  7. Shinee, Great job with the recipe and blog post. I’m really craving kiki now, lol. Pinning for later! 

  8. Oh, I pinned this one! I love fruit pizzas, but this is just too cute in individual portions.

  9. I’m totally trying these. They’re not only pretty but fairly simple to make! I have a feeling they’ll turn into quite a staple at our house this summer! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  10. I make a similar ne with out he white chocolate!! Yours look so good!! I would love if you stopped by my place and shared your stuff on My 2 Favorite Things on Thursday Link Party. I’d love to have you!!

  11. These look so yummy…the perfect summer dessert! I bet these are going to be a huge hit at our pool parties this summer! Sending lots of foodie love your way! 

  12. Absolutely gorgeous pics! 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing this recipe at Freedom Fridays! Pinned and scheduled a FB share!

  13. Hello, these were delicious. I have a question, is the frosting pipeable. I’d like to try them on cupcakes.

    • Hi, Jennifer. I’m glad you enjoyed these mini pizzas! 🙂 The frosting isn’t pipeable, but it’s not really runny either. I think you could smear the frosting on the cupcakes, instead of piping. I’m afraid it won’t hold its shape when piped. Hope this helps.

  14. They look so yummy 
    Question can I use regular whipping cream? TIA

  15. Love your idea and the ‘frosting’ – my concern is the fruit bleeding onto/into the frosting – also, dare you frost these in advance?  I am 2 days away from doing this on mini waffles and your post is so on point – thanks for your sharing!

    • Hi, Barbara! If you’re using fresh fruits, I don’t think there will be bleeding issue. I can see that happening with frozen or mushy fruits. And your mini waffles sounds amazing! If you get a chance to snap a photo, I’d love to see your finished version.

  16. How many does this recipe make?! Looking to make them for a class of 24 and wanted to double it in case someone wants seconds! 🙂 Thanks!

  17. How long will these keep?

    • Hi, Rebekah. I’d suggest to assemble no more than couple hours prior to serving. You can prepare the cookies and filling a day in advance and assemble right before serving for best result. Hope this helps.

  18. what a fun dessert this would be for a pizza party!! and that frosting sounds incredible
