Mini Fruit Pizzas

Next Monday is Memorial Day. If you are grilling out, going on a picnic, or attending a party, I have the perfect dessert for you. Yes, you need dessert, it is a holiday, dessert is a must:) These Mini Fruit Pizzas are perfect for any party or get together. They are fun to make and pretty to serve. Plus, everyone loves getting their own fruit pizza. You don’t have to share!

To make the Mini Fruit Pizzas, I used my Muffin Top Pan. I love this pan! It makes the best big cookies…or Mini Fruit Pizzas:) I used sugar cookie dough as my pizza crust. I pressed the cookie dough into the pan and baked the pizzas for about 8 minutes. When the pizzas were cool, I frosted them with cream cheese frosting that has a hint of lemon. I decorated the pizzas with strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries. Feel free to use your favorite fruit-kiwi, mandarin oranges, raspberries, peaches, and mango are also great toppings.

These Mini Fruit Pizzas are a great summer dessert. Make them for Memorial Day or the 4th of July…or just because you want a special dessert. And get the kids to help, they will love decorating their own pizza. Making Mini Fruit Pizzas sounds like a fun summer activity to me! I think I will make and eat them all summer long:) Hey, there is fruit involved so they are healthy:) Enjoy!
