I made these this past weekend because I had family staying over so I wanted to make a colorful dessert that all the kids and adults would love. We all loved them so much that I decided I had to share the recipe with you too so I made them again the very next day, and no one here is complaining about that. Fruit pizza cookies two days in a row, yes please!

I shared a similar fruit pizza cookie recipe on here a few years ago but the other are a soft Lofthouse-texture-like cookie with a lemon frosting. These are a chewy sugar cookie with a vanilla cream cheese frosting. Both are good but I think these are my new fav.

These cookies are easy to make and I love that the dough doesn’t require refrigeration (they aren’t the thickest cookies but that’s perfect here). They are perfectly chewy and sweet and just amazingly good. And now it’s nearly midnight and I want another. How I love love love these cookies!

Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizzas (Chewy Version)

These are the perfect refreshing summer treat! Soft and chewy sugar cookies are topped with a rich cream cheese frosting then decorated with colorful fresh fruit. No one can resist these! 
Servings: 30 cookies
Prep15 minutes
Cook10 minutes
Ready in: 25 minutes


Cream Cheese Frosting


  • For the cookies: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and cream of tartar for 20 seconds, set aside.
  • In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together sugar and butter until combined. 
  • Mix in egg, then mix in egg yolk and vanilla extract. With mixer set on low speed slowly add in dry ingredients and mix just until combined (dough with will thick, stop mixer and mix by hand to get flour at bottom if needed).
  • Scoop dough out 1 1/2 Tbsp (about 33g) at a time and shape into balls. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone liner, spacing cookies 2-inches apart. 
  • Bake in preheated oven 10 - 12 minutes (cookies should appear slightly under-baked). Remove from oven and allow to rest several minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Repeat until all of the dough has been used up. Once cookies are cool (and just before serving) frost cookies with cream cheese frosting and top with fresh fruit.
  • For the frosting: In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment cream butter then blend in cream cheese and mix until smooth. Add powdered sugar and vanilla and mix until light and fluffy.


  • *If you don't want buy as many kinds of fruit as I did I'd recommend using diced strawberries, blueberries and diced kiwi.

    Can you please tell me where that white oval serving platter is from? We’re having an IVF rainbow baby and would love to use this platter for a rainbow fruit display such as yours for our baby shower. Love this!

      I believe I purchased that at Crate and Barrel. I don’t think they carry it anymore but there are similar options. You may find something similar at Home Goods as well.

  • Laurie

    So video shows adding 2 sticks of butter and the recipe says 1 cup which is 1 stick. So which did you do?

    • Jaclyn

      Each stick of butter is usually 1/2 cup or 8 tbsp so you’ll need 2 sticks :)

      Michelle, I have a recipe from Pampered Chef called Cool Veggie Pizza that uses crescent roll dough with a cream cheese & dill spread topped with cut up cold vegetables. You then cut it into squares for appetizer servings. Just do a search on Pinterest.

    Delicious! I made them for book club and left them as “build your own” style. It was a huge hit! I found my cookies needed to bake about 13 minutes and I added a bit more vanilla and powdered sugar to the frosting but otherwise followed the recipe and people were raving about them! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  • Kristi

    Very yummy. My family all liked them a lot. I modified the frosting – I used one LESS TB butter, one additional cup powdered sugar, one additional teaspoon vanilla, and one teaspoon of almond extract.

  • Elise

    Hi! I made these and loved them! Everyone did! I had them out create your own style and half of the cookies got eaten plain they are so good! I was wondering if this sugar cookie recipe would work for cut outs too since they are so good!

  • Caytlynn

    I and my family loved these mini pizzas- particularly the sugar cookie base. How well does the cookie dough/cooked cookie freeze? (without, of course, the toppings)

    Thank you!

      I’m so glad you like these cookies Caytlynn! The dough or the baked cookies should both freeze well for about 2 months.

  • Emily

    I want to attempt to make these cookies gluten free! I made them before I got diagnosed with celiac, and they were incredible! Any suggestions of how to make them gf?

      Unfortunately I haven’t tested with a 1:1 gluten free flour blend so I couldn’t say for sure. You may want to go with one that’s made with gluten free flour just to be sure they’ll turn out and ingredients are wasted.
