The first time I made mini fruit pizzas it was for my sister’s baby shower four years ago. I have no idea why we haven’t made them since because they are so much fun for guests and make for a really pretty dessert.

Those large fruit pizzas kind of intimidate me, so I’m a fan of this mini-me version. Plus the sugar cookie recipe is one of my favorites, and that cream cheese frosting I could totally eat with a spoon.

Speaking of spoons, for uniformly-shaped cookies, make sure to use a medium cookie scoop. It makes the perfect size sugar cookies for mini fruit pizzas.

My favorite way to eat this is topped with diced strawberries, but we couldn’t resist making them a bit more festive for the 4th of July holiday by throwing in some blueberries. You can tell we had a lot of fun coming up with different ways to decorate the mini fruit pizzas.

The strawberry heart is my most favorite.

Of course you don’t have to stick with the red, white and blue theme. You can elevate them to an even classier dessert by topping them with a combination of blackberries, diced kiwi, diced strawberry and a mandarin orange slice. Or let your guests do the decorating by providing a mini fruit pizza bar!
