All you need are just a handful of easy ingredients for this quick fruit pizza. You’ll need seamless crescent dough, cream cheese, honey, lemon zest, vanilla, assorted fruit, and optional powdered sugar. You can even use frozen fruit, too, just make sure it has been thawed!

CRESCENT ROLL DOUGH: I like to use the seamless crescent dough sheet that can be found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store, but the regular crescent dough can be used, too. Just make sure to squeeze the seams together.
CREAM CHEESE: Make sure the cream cheese is softened to room temperature before working with it. It will be much easier to spread if is softened! Mascarpone cheese can be used in place of cream cheese.
HONEY: I like to use fresh local honey as the natural sweetener here. Honey and fruit are the perfect combinations for summer.
LEMON: You will need the zest of a lemon for those hints of citrus. The lemon makes this recipe so much better!
VANILLA: I like to use pure vanilla extract to really enhance the flavor of my dessert recipes.
FRUIT: I used kiwi, blueberries, and raspberries, but you can use almost any type of fruit. I would avoid watermelon since it is filled with so much water.
POWDERED SUGAR: Completely optional, but a light dusting of confectioners sugar really ties this recipe together, plus it makes it look beautiful.

This Easy Fruit Pizza is an easy recipe thanks to store bought crescent dough. It's then topped with sweetened cream cheese and loads of juicy fruit!

How to Make Easy Fruit Pizza

PREHEAT THE OVEN: First, preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake the crescent dough on a baking sheet.

COMBINE INGREDIENTS: Next, in a bowl, combine softened cream cheese or mascarpone, honey, lemon zest, and vanilla.

LAYER THE FRUIT: Then, spread the vanilla mixture over the crust. Arrange slices of fruit on top of the cream cheese.

DUST WITH SUGAR: Finally, if desired, dust with powdered sugar and serve.

This Easy Fruit Pizza will make a great appetizer or quick dessert for any party you may have! It's topped with sweetened cream cheese and scrumptious fruit!


Can I make fruit pizza the day before?

You probably don’t want to make fruit pizza assembled with the fruit on it. However, you can bake the crust ahead of time and mix the cream cheese ingredients ahead of time and store separately until ready to serve.

What is fruit pizza?

Fruit pizza is commonly made with a sugar cookie crust and topped with sweetened fruit and cream cheese. It’s the ultimate sweet treat for summer desserts and cookouts.

How to keep fruit pizza from getting soggy?

Be sure to assemble the fruit pizza no more than six hours before serving. If you want the crust to stay crispy, then you’ll need to make sure the fruit doesn’t stay on it too long.

How to store this recipe?

Tightly wrap with plastic wrap or store in the refrigerator. After about a day, the fruit pizza may not be as enjoyable so make sure you gobble it all up.
