Celebrate Summer’s Berry Harvest with an Easy Fruit Pizza Dessert Recipe

fruit-pizza-dessert-recipe
A delicious meal is not complete without a dessert. My kids and I have a sweet tooth, and we are always craving dessert after our meal. I usually have a pound cake or some coconut cookies to satisfy those cravings but during the hot summer days, I don’t feel like eating these. I love experimenting with fresh fruits that we don’t get the chance to eat during the winter time! That’s one of the downsides of living up north: we don’t have fresh produce during those cold winter times! So as soon as the hot weather hits and my farmer’s market opens, I make sure to stock up on those fresh items! Food tastes so much better!
While my kids love ice cream (like this blueberry ice cream recipe) and popsicles, I wanted to try a different summer dessert idea. As usual, Pinterest was my inspiration, and I stumbled on those delicious and mouthwatering fruit pizza. I was drooling just looking at them. So I decided to give it a try! And let me tell you, I was missing out on something delicious. I wish I made this dessert before! The fresh fruits combined with dried ones adds such a delicious taste and crunch to the dessert! It is refreshing and satisfying without leaving you feeling stuffed. You don’t want to have a heavy dessert during those hot summer days! It also makes a perfect dessert for any upcoming party or a hostess gift! Now let’s see how you can make this easy dessert.

Material needed

Make it

Making your dough:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine all ingredients until you get a sticky consistency.
  • Put the dough in a glass pie pan and using your fingers, press until tightly packed evenly throughout.
  • Bake at 350 for about 10-13 minutes. Let cool completely.

Buttercream

Using an electric mixer, combine all ingredients at medium speed and work your way up to high. If icing too stiff, add milk one tablespoon at a time. If too watery, add icing sugar 1 tablespoon at a time.

Assembling the pizza:
  • Once your graham cracker crust is cool, slather on your favorite recipe for buttercream icing (this will act as your pizza sauce).
  • Use an offset spatula to spread a thin layer evenly throughout your “pizza crust”. Top with your favorite fresh and dried fruit. Don’t forget to top it off with some delicious “cheese” (coconut flakes).

  1. I love veggie pizza and this looks like it would be even better. 🙂 I’m sure my family would go crazy for fruit pizza. I need to make it for them sometime soon.

  2. My kids inherited my sweet tooth! I’m trying to cut us all back on our treats and make healthier swaps. This sounds perfect!
