Almond extract makes all the difference in this updated version of the traditional fruit pizza. Kiwi makes the topping completely fresh and adds beautiful color. Use low-fat cream cheese for a slightly lighter version. Any clear juice (apple, pear, peach, etc.) may be substituted for the pineapple.

Instructions Checklist

  • Combine flour and confectioners' sugar in a bowl. Cut in butter with a knife or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press into prepared pizza pan to make a crust.

  • Bake in preheated oven until very lightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

  • Beat cream cheese, 1/3 cup white sugar, and almond extract until smooth; spread over completely cooled crust. Arrange strawberries, blueberries, and kiwi decoratively over cream cheese mixture.

  • Mix pineapple juice, 1/2 cup white sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice in a saucepan until smooth; bring to a boil. Cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes. Cool slightly and drizzle over fruit. Refrigerate until chilled.

The cookie portion needs more sugar as does the cream portion. It was an OK recipe but we'll be altering the recipe to taste more like a traditional fruit tart. The topping was a the best part and allowed the fruit to maintain color. Read More

The cookie dough recipe is an easy alternative to bought sugar cookie dough and not as sweet. I made only half of the cream cheese mixture to make the recipe healthier and it was plenty. My family thought this was delicious! Read More

This was a big hit with my family and friends! I love that the crust is a butter cookie instead of a sugar cookie. It is very flaky and breaks easily so you'll need a fork to eat it. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Wonderful! I didn't have pineapple juice so juiced two tangerines and added lemonade for the glaze. Only made half the cream cheese mixture and half the glaze amount and it was plenty to cover the crust. Used only fresh peaches sliced thin- yum! Read More
