Recipe: Fruit Pizza

Isn’t this Fruit Pizza fabulous looking? I know you will love it! The perfect recipe to make for the people at work… or a family gathering… just perfect! This recipe is courtesy of Marlo Linderman. The picture Marlo sent me is from here.

When I managed a phone unit a few years ago… we had food days… and one of the guys brought in a similar Fruit Pizza (he called it a Breakfast Pizza… leave it to a guy to advertise it for breakfast… just kidding guys... we did eat it for breakfast afterall). I meant to get the recipe and forgot… and regretted it.

Fast forward to this morning and lo and behold.. this scrumptious picture was on my Facebook feed … one of my Facebook friends had made this fabulous looking Fruit Pizza…. so being the enterprising person I am … I shot her a message asking if she would mind sharing the recipe and could I post it on my food blog… I was thrilled when she offered to share it! So this is all from Marlo… including the tips!


The pie crust can be made from scratch however the store bought "Nestle" sugar cookie dough tastes the same…. and also saves a lot of time in the kitchen!!!!

Make sure the fruit is dry before adding.

Thanks Marlo for sharing!
