This Thermomix Fruit Pizza is the perfect dessert for a pizza party or Summer get together with friends and family.
Ok, this fruit pizza isn't actually a pizza - it's basically a large sugar cookie, smothered in cream cheese frosting and topped with a selection of seasonal fruit.
It looks really impressive when you serve it up but it is actually really easy to make. Especially thanks to the Thermomix making the cookie dough and the frosting super simple.
It is a really adaptable recipe too - you can top the sugar cookie base with just about anything - my kids love sliced banana or strawberries and grated chocolate on top, or you can switch up the cream cheese frosting for nutella - anything goes!
However, definitely try it with the cream cheese frosting first - it is to die for. I am a total sucker for cream cheese frosting - you will also find similar variations on my Thermomix Cinnamon Rolls and my Thermomix Red Velvet Cupcakes. To me it makes everything taste amazing 🙂

There are three components to this fruit pizza recipe - the sugar cookie base, the cream cheese frosting, and the toppings.
For the Sugar Cookie Base:
- Vanilla Extract
- Plain Flour
- Baking Powder
For the Cream Cheese Frosting:
- Icing Sugar (if you don't have any, you can use white sugar and mill it first but be sure to do it for at least 30 seconds or your frosting will be grainy).
- Cream cheese - I use block Philadelphia.
- Vanilla extract
For the Toppings
- Fruit of your choice - For the one showed in the photos here I used kiwi fruit, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. You can use any seasonal fruit you like or add marshmallows, chocolates etc. My kids often ask for banana slices or strawberries and grated chocolate.
How to make a fruit pizza
There are three parts to making this dessert pizza: the sugar cookie base, the cream cheese frosting and then finally decorating it.
Making the sugar cookie base
Thanks to the Thermomix, making the sugar cookie base is super easy. Start by milling the sugar (to make it easier to mix in), then add all the remaining ingredients and mix.
Next turn it out onto a floured surface - the dough is quite sticky so you will need to use a spatula to scrape it out.
Use floured hands to bring it together and shape it into a flattened disc. Now wrap it up in plastic wrap and place it in the fridge to cool for at least 20 minutes.
Meanwhile you can prepare your tin - I use a 12 inch tart tin but you could also use a cake tin or pizza tray (just don't use one of those pizza trays with the holes in the bottom).
To prepare the tin, grease and flour the sides and line the bottom with baking paper.
Once the dough has been chilling for 20 minutes, place it in the center of your tin and use your hands to gently and evenly press it out towards the edges until it fills the tin.
Now bake it in the oven for around 17 minutes. Don't let it get too brown.
Allow it to cool in the tin for 10 minutes then turn it out, remove the baking paper and leave it to completely cool on a wire rack.
Making the Cream Cheese Frosting
Making the cream cheese frosting is super easy too. Just mill the sugar, then add the remaining ingredients and mix.
You can chill it in the fridge until you are ready to use it.
Decorating the fruit pizza
Once the base is cooled, you can decorate your pizza.
Use a knife to smother the base with the frosting and then slice up the fruit and use your creativity to decorate it!
Top Tips and FAQs
Yes you can make fruit pizza ahead of time but for best results, only add the frosting and fruit toppings right before serving. The frosting will keep in the fridge for a few days.
Fruit pizza is best served on the day you make it. However it will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days if covered tightly with plastic wrap.
