Mini fruit pizzas

These mini fruit pizzas were originally post on All Things Delicious. A big thank-you to Brooke for the guest post. If you haven’t yet visited All Things Delicious, you’re missing out!

I recently hosted a baby shower for my little sister. I chose turquoise and strawberry red for the shower colors and carried that strawberry red theme into the dessert buffet with mini fruit pizzas. Though you can top these babies with all kinds of fresh fruit—blueberries, mandarin oranges, kiwi, bananas—I went with diced strawberries. (Kind of a no-brainer due to the whole strawberry red thing.)

I love how simple yet pretty they turned out:

The possibilities are endless for these mini fruit pizzas. Add some fresh blueberries with the diced strawberries and you have the perfect dessert for your 4th of July picnic!

Don’t tell, but I may still have a small tub of the frosting hidden in my fridge in case of PMS emergency.

  2. Gradually add the confectioner's sugar until frosting reaches desired consistency. Store in refrigerator until ready to use.
