Why this is our all-time favorite fruit pizza recipe
For me, fruit pizza is the ultimate dessert of the spring and summer months. The combination of chewy cookie crust, fluffy topping, and fresh fruit strikes the perfect balance between decadent and healthy. It’s definitely a satisfying dessert, yet still feels light and balanced. Especially when we top it with delicious seasonal fruit!
And can we just take a minute to appreciate what a beautiful thing it is too?? Perfect for summer holidays, corporate or birthday parties. Although there are a few steps to create it, it’s easy to do. A simple oatmeal crust. Fluffy Greek yogurt topping. And all that lovely fresh fruit your heart desires. You can go crazy like us and create a beautiful, multi-layered work of art. But it’s just as tasty (and still beautiful) when you just toss those lovely fruits on the crust anyway and call it a day.
We’ve done our fair share of fruit pizzas with sugar cookie crusts, but the flavor and texture this oatmeal crust brings to the party is just…better. Oatmeal and fruit are a natural combination, and this fruit pizza recipe takes it to the next level.

Which fruits should you use for your fruit pizza:
This dessert is endlessly customizable. I only made it with strawberries, tropical fruits and all berries. Here are some of the best fruits you can use to make a fruit pizza:
Start in the middle and gradually work your way to the edge. You can make rows of different colors like we did or make a design in the middle like a heart or star. Or try a monochromatic design using only yellow/orange or red fruit.
Tips for the best fruit pizza:
Can I make fruit pizza ahead of time?
Yes! If you need to do this in advance, we recommend crafting the components and storing them separately. Bake the crust, let cool, then wrap in plastic wrap. Prepare the frosting and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Cut the fruit and store separately in the fridge to avoid color bleeding. Keep in mind that some fruits look and taste better if you cut them right before assembly.
How long does fruit pizza keep?
You can store fruit pizza tightly covered in the fridge for up to 3 days. Keep in mind that the crust will soften and the fruit will dry out a bit. It will still be tasty, but is best if enjoyed within 24 hours.
Can this be done with a non-dairy topping?
Yes! Whipped coconut milk is a delicious non-dairy alternative. You can also use frozen whipped cream.
Other Fruit Pizza Crust Alternatives:
If you’re short on time, pre-made cookie dough works well for the crust. Almond or oat flour can be used as a gluten-free alternative instead of all-purpose flour.
Can I make custom fruit pizzas?
Yes! This is great for kids and parties! Scoop 1/4 cup balls of the oatcake crust mixture and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Keep in mind that you don’t want to underbake the dough or you will lose stability. Glaze and top with fruit if you like.
Other topping suggestions for fruit pizza:
After you put the fruit on the pizza, you can spread it with apricot jelly. It gives the fruit a nice shine! Simply melt about 2 tablespoons of jelly in the microwave for a few seconds to soften it. Use a pastry brush to gently brush the fruit. This also prevents the fruit from drying out.
You can also top your pizza with sliced almonds, toasted coconut, or a chocolate drizzle.
