It’s no secret that pizza is one of my favorite foods ever.  I could eat it multiple times a week — we even had it for dinner last night.  Way back in the day, I took a Nutrition & Wellness class in high school, which was the closest equivalent to home economics in middle school.  Everything we cooked had to be pretty healthy, and I’ve held onto some of the recipes through the years.  When Hunter and I had his sister over for her birthday, I decided to make mini versions of the fresh fruit pizza for dessert.

Mini Fruit Pizzas

fruit pizza 01Ingredients:

  • Sugar cookie dough
  • Cool whip
  • Fresh fruit of your choosing

The nice thing about this “recipe” is that it’s super easy to make, and you can get as homemade or pre-made as you like!  You can also quickly whip this together if you have the ingredients around with little prep time.

Okay, so start with the cookies.  Using homemade, or store bought dough, bake your cookies according to the instructions.  Let the cookies totally cool before moving on to the toppings.  While they’re cooling, get your fruit ready by cutting it into bite size (or smaller) pieces.

Edit: If you wanted to make a big pizza, roll out the dough into a big circle like a pizza, instead of making smaller cookies.

Once the cookies have completely cooled, spread cool whip on top.  If the cookies are still warm then the cool whip will melt, which isn’t ideal.  Finally, top with your fruit and enjoy!

The best part was that we enjoyed a few cookies for Samantha’s birthday on Thursday night, then finished the batch with Holly and Charles David after grilling on Friday night!

Edits: I’ve made these with all sorts of fruit, but this time I used strawberries, kiwi, and mango.  You could also make different shaped cookies topped with fruit for holidays too – hearts & strawberries for Valentine’s Day, or candy canes, snowmen and snowflakes for Christmas!
