Chocolate Fruit Pizza
Hi there! It’s Fiona from Just So Tasty – last month I shared M&M Granola Bars and today I’m stopping in to share this chocolate fruit pizza. It’s a big soft and chewy sugar cookie. Then it’s frosted with a chocolate cream cheese topping and decorated with fresh fruit.
This recipe is so perfect for BBQs, potlucks and get-togethers. Plus, it’s a little extra special than your regular fruit pizza. Especially if you’re a chocolate lover like me 😉
For the Sugar Cookie
The sugar cookie crust is thick, soft, and chewy for a few main reasons. First we’re using a combination of butter and cream cheese. This helps make the cookie extra soft and adds more flavor than if we were using shortening.
Then a little cornstarch and cream of tartar keep it extra soft.
After the sugar cookie dough is made, we’ll need to chill it in the fridge – otherwise the dough is too soft to roll out. Then we roll it out onto our pizza pan, and it’s ready to bake.
Just be careful not to roll it out to the very edge of your pan. It’ll expand as it bakes, so if it’s already at the edge of the pan it can overflow.
For the Chocolate Cream Cheese Topping
After the sugar cookie is baked and cooled – it’s time to make the chocolate cream cheese topping. It’s creamy, not too sweet, and has a delicious chocolate flavor.
The chocolate cream cheese topping is made by beating together softened cream cheese and butter, then mixing in cocoa powder and powdered sugar.
The topping is frosted onto the top of our chocolate fruit pizza, and then it’s time to decorate. Feel free to use use whatever fresh fruit you prefer – I chose strawberries, blueberries & kiwi – but it’s really up to you.
Then a little drizzle of melted chocolate on each piece, and you’re ready to serve.
This chocolate fruit pizza is always a total crowd pleaser. With chewy sugar cookie, creamy chocolate cream cheese topping & fresh berries – you can’t go wrong!
