Healthy Recipe: Fruit Pizza

by Cascade Ice on March 7, 2011

When you think of pizza, you think of cheese, meat, lots of sauce and maybe some veggies tossed on top. It is an American favorite but it isn’t always the healthiest option. Research published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association explains that around 40 percent of children’s total calorie consumption came from sugar additives and solid fat. Six foods resulted in 50 percent of the total empty calories and pizza and soda were at the top of the list. Since pizza is such a family favorite, but isn’t always so good to our waistlines, we wanted to share a different, healthier take on pizza that is not only tasty, but can be a fun, at-home kitchen project with the kids!

Fruit Pizza


  • 1 premade crust (pastry crust or low-fat sugar cookie dough)
  • 8 ounces softened low-fat cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup confectioners sugar*
  • 2 cup sugar-free cool whip
  • Fruit of your choice


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Flatten the dough onto a 6″ pizza sheet and bake until firm to touch, about 11 to 15 minutes. In a medium bowl, blend cream cheese, sugar and cool whip. Spread the crust with the cream cheese mixture and decorate with sliced fruit.


*If you’d like to make a sugar-free version using sucralose, just combine 1/4 cup of sucralose and 1/4 cup of corn starch in a blender to make a confectioners sugar substitute.
