Sourdough Fruit Pizza Recipe Inspiration

Mini sourdough fruit pizzas have been my favorite birthday treat since I was about 15 or 16 years old. My mom made them for me one year as a different dessert for my birthday, and I couldn’t get enough. Ever since, it’s been what I’ve asked for or made on my birthday.

I wanted to share this treat with you, so I made myself measure the ingredients and got the recipe written down so you could enjoy it with me this summer! I use my sourdough sugar cookie recipe as the base, then a layer of wholesome honey cream cheese, and finally, I top them with berries. I’m super excited to share my favorite birthday dessert with you!

Use cookie cutters or a mason jar to cut out shapes, re-rolling leftover dough after initial cut-outs.

Place cookies on a lightly floured sheet pan about 2 inches apart.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 10-12 minutes (cookies are done just after setting, and will be lightly brown).

Place cookies on a wire cooling rack until completely cooled.

Storage Instructions

You can store these fruit pizzas, assembled, in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 days. Or you can store them unassembled so they’ll last longer. Do this by storing the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for 4-5 days. Store the cream cheese frosting and sliced fruit in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Make Ahead Tips

If you’d like to make this recipe ahead of time, you can make the cookie dough the night before and let it long ferment in the fridge for up to 24 hours before baking it.

You can also freeze the cookie dough after it’s made if you won’t be baking it for a little while. This cookie dough can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Sourdough Fruit Pizza FAQ

Can I use frozen fruit for fruit pizza?

Yes, you can use frozen fruit but do know that as the fruit thaws, the liquid from them will start to run. I would place the frozen fruit in the fridge overnight to thaw, drain off the excess liquid, and then add them to the cookies.

Can I freeze these fruit pizzas after they’re assembled?

To prevent a soggy texture, I would freeze each component individually. Then, after you thaw each overnight in the fridge, assemble them so the texture doesn’t get weird.
