A fruit pizza is always in the works when you have left over cookie dough! After realizing we were not going to be baking all the sugar cookie dough from last week, fruit pizza popped into mind. Our family is all about some fruit pizza, and this one is spooktacular! Here is the perfect dessert treat for any Halloween or spooky occasion.

All about some pizza, fruit pizza that is.

If you have never tried fruit pizza, well, you are missing out. This is one of our favorite desserts to make. We love fruit and cookies, go figure! Plus, it is super easy to make and can be made the day before. Sugar cookie dough, fruit, cream cheese, and powdered sugar is all you will need. This spooktacular version takes it up a notch just in time for Halloween. The added candy and purple food coloring gives it just the right amount of Halloween touch. We even tried to pick out fruits that could have a spooky feel about them.

Fruit Pizza

I have had so many different versions of fruit pizza. From ones that use a corn syrup type of sauce to the cream cheese sauce on mine. The variety of fruits can also differ from pizza to pizza. For the 4th of July, we opt for all those fruits that are blue and red! That is the great thing about this type of pizza. You can personalize it to your very own taste! My husband is not a huge raspberry fan. We normally don’t put those on our pizza. So this time, more pizza for the rest of us due to the raspberries 😉

Spooktacular fun!

Halloween is all about that mixture of spooky and fun. Make this pizza however you want to! Maybe you want to put gummy spiders on it instead of the gummy snakes. Go for it! It is all about your imagination and what you love. Maybe a basic cream cheese icing with a drizzle of strawberry glaze to look like blood. I hope you all enjoy this super fun version of fruit pizza!
