You just can’t go wrong with a sweet white chocolate chip sugar cookie base combined with the tangy rainbow of seasonal fruit and cream cheese topping. More fruit treats I love are Blueberry Banana Cake, Crepes with Berries and Cream and 5-Ingredient Almond Cake with Fresh Berries.
I brought these to my daughter’s class party yesterday and shared a photo on my Instagram and everyone wanted the recipe, so here it is! You can use any fruit you like, I usually use my favorites and try to keep it colorful but if you don’t feel like cutting fruit, just use berries! You may notice some of the photos pictured here don’t have white chocolate chips, that’s because I tried it both ways and liked it better WITH the white chocolate, but if you’re not a fan of white chocolate you can leave them out and increase the sugar slightly. The recipe below and nutritional info includes the white chocolate.
- 2 cups all purpose unbleached flour, Gold Medal
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 2/3 cup brown sugar, unpacked
- 1/4 cup melted unsalted butter
- 2 large egg whites
- 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2/3 cup white chocolate chips or chopped white chocolate
For the Frosting:
- 8 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 large mango, diced
- 3 diced kiwis
- 1 cup sliced strawberries
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1 cup raspberries
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray a 9 x 13 x 1.375 inch non-stick baking pan (quarter sheet pan) with cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon and stir to blend.
- In another bowl, whisk the sugars with the butter, egg whites, applesauce and vanilla until light and fluffy.
- Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients with a spatula in two additions until the batter is very well blended. If the batter looks more “crumbly” than smooth, add just a drop of water at a time (ONLY if needed) until it smooths out.
- Fold in the white chocolate chips.
- Spread the batter onto the baking pan using the back of a measuring cup to smooth evenly.
- Bake 14 to 16 minutes, until the edges are golden and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Don't over-bake or your bars will be dry. Let it cool completely on wire rack.
- Meanwhile, prepare the frosting; in a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla until well-blended.
- Cut the bars into 15 large squares (5 cuts by 3 cuts with the knife). Then cut each square in half diagonally to create triangles. Spread the frosting in a thin, even layer over the surface of the cookie, leaving a small margin around the edges. Layer the fresh fruit over the frosting.
- Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

I really don’t like white chocolate. Is it need to add a binder of sort? Or could I use some ground almonds.
Suggestions for replacing Eggs and Egg whites – for someone with an egg allergy
Without testing, I can’t be sure it would work.
Having a hard time with the egg white, appleauce etc. They are not getting fluffy at all. I’ve made this before with a hand mixer and they came out fine, now I’m using my stand mixer and no dice. Help please 🙁
These have become a family favorite! Made them again last night. Yum!
When I transferred the crust to a wire rack some of it fell apart. I turned it over right from the baking pan. Did I not wait long enough to transfer it?
I just got these out of the oven! They look wonderful! I'm making them for our dessert tonight after dinner!
Looks great. I just made two batches and realized that they didn't cook all the way through even with extended cooking times.many idea what the issue could be? I used a 9×13 pan
When you say "less fat" do you mean fat free or low fat? Thanks!!
when printing out this recipe, only print 1-5 pages, instead of all 23, pages 6-12 are reviews , and 13-23 are blank!
It is a creative idea to add fruit in pizza, like the idea.
Great fruit pizza idea! I can't wait to try this out 🙂
I made these and thought they were delicious. My dough wasn't crumbly at all so I checked the recipe and turns out I used 1/4 pound of melted butter instead of 1/4 cup! So, they were delicious but not-so-skinny. Trying again tonight with the original recipe. Thank you!
These were delicious! It was impossible to eat just one. I used a rectangular cake pan – I don't know if that's the same as a quarter sheet pan, but it worked. My batter was very sticky, so I couldn't get a flat top, but that didn't matter since it didn't affect the taste. I used various berries because that's what we like and everyone loved them. Thanks for the recipe!
I made these for Mother's day yesterday as well and everyone loved them… My co-workers are enjoying the leftovers today 🙂
So happy everyone loved them!
I made this yesterday for mother's day and it was absolutely delicious – a HUGE hit! Everyone said it was perfect for a spring/summer barbecue. How far in advance can you make/assemble this?
You could probably make the cookie a day or 2 in advance and keep them in an airtight container, but I would assemble them the same day you are eating and keep them refrigerated.
I made this last night. Was great! I used two round cake pans since I don't have a quarter sheet and it was just enough! Mine didn't stick at all but I sprayed and them used a paper towel to make sure I spread the oil really well.
I also left out the chocolate chips but I didn't bother adding more sugar. Its plenty sweet enough! I also used half white wheat flour.
I cut each round into 8 slices, making 16 total servings which is more realistic than 30 (sorry Gina), especially when serving guests. Fantastic!!!
Thanks and glad you enjoyed!
I just made these. They are delicious, but the cookie crust stuck to the pan really bad. I even sprayed it, a lot. Just used the pieces, but wondering if there is a trick to not having it stick so badly to the pan. Any ideas?
I don't know, I had no issue with mine sticking, maybe a silicone liner would help prevent that next time.
I used aluminum foil on the pan and sprayed it with Pam. The bars came right out to cool and then cut nicely.
I am trying to save this to my ZipList. Every time I do this, it says that I've added the Roasted Strawberry Bread. That was the first recipe I saved from your website. But it doesn't seem to be saving the Fruit Pizza?
You can email ziplist, email@example.com
Hello and have a lovely weekend,
I like your blog.
And nice idéa to bake a fruit pizza:-)
I must try another day.
We wil make this healty dessert tonight:
enjoy the weekend.
My bars just came out of the oven! I had trouble with the batter sticking to things as I was trying to spread it in the pan so I sprayed a little cooking spray on my hand and flattened it.
Hey, how thick should you spread out the mixture onto the baking sheet? Also would this work okay if I were to use a rounded pan (so like an actual pizza shape?) Want to make this for my mom! Thanks for sharing btw!
More wondering if this rises a lot also?
It doesn't rise much, I used a quarter sheet pan which isn't very high, it's probably less than 1 inch. A rounded pan should work but the baking time would probably need to be adjusted.
Not a white chocolate fan, can I substitute dark choc chips instead?
I'm sure they would taste great with a strawberry or raspberry topping!
This would be great with strawberries and blueberries an American flag pattern for a Memorial or July 4th picnic! Wonder if you could remove the crust from the pan then frost and decorate? Just an idea…
Ooop, looks like you're supposed to remove it from the pan already. Somehow I missed that in the photo. All the better!
Yes, it's easier to cut it, then frost it, but you could make it one large bar.
I put aluminum foil in my pan and the whole pan of bars lifted right out of the pan!
Hi – I'm going to make this without the white chocolate chips – how much additional sugar would you recommend? Thanks! Nikki
I used 3/4 cup granulated sugar without the white chips.
I actually just made these last night without the white chips, and I used a little extra cinnamon with 3/4 cup granulated AND 3/4 cup light brown sugar. They came out fantastic, and my co-workers RAVED about them. It came out to 3 points+ per piece instead of 4. Thank you Gina, you're a Godsend!
Does the fruit stick to the frosting? Looks like they'd roll off if you tried to pick them up…
Yes, the cream cheese frosting keep it in place.
Wow you took this to the next level with the white chocolate! I've been thinking about doing a fruit pizza for a while now but never considered the white chocolate, mmmmm so good!
It makes it in my opinion!
This looks absolutely amazing! No wonder people asked for the recipe, thanks so much for sharing, this is a feast and a half 😀 x
Gina, these look great. I can't wait to try them out!
Fruit pizza?! That looks amazing. I shall bookmark this for the summer when there are fresh berries in abundance.
I love fruit pizzas!! I have made them before with a sugar cookie type base, but I like your idea better…
Oh I can't wait to try this with a batch of strawberries. Yum!
This looks so good! What a fun recipe!
That dessert looks like the food representation of summer. I love the white chocolate chips, few people seem to have them in recipes and they're so delicious.
This is such a great idea! I've never had fruit pizza before but I think this would be a great party appetizer!
This sounds awesome. Maybe I'll make some for Mother's Day brunch on Sunday 🙂
I can't wait to try these!!
olija, I am sure some vanilla flavored frosting would be good or even just cool whip instead of the cream cheese frosting.
I don't care for Mango, so I will be substituting peaches.
Any gluten free recommendations?
I have made fruit pizza before just with premade sugar cookie dough from the store, but this looks like a healthier version. I wonder what the points would be if the chocolate chips were removed.
I'm with you Melissa. I've only ever had these with premade sugar cookie dough. What a healthy looking alternative!!
My hubby doesn't like cream cheese. What substitute you would recommend?
Try Tofutti cream cheese. It's a Soy alternative. It taste nothing like cream cheese and is extremely delicious!
Great idea, or someone suggested frosting.
I made with a mixture of cream and powdered sugar.. And came out yummm.. Try that.. if u would like to avoid cheese..
I would recommend a substitute husband!
I just wanna say Thank YOU! This appears to be so delicious.
OMG, look lovely. But who could eat just one!
I am SO going to try this for the weekend! Thank you!
I've made a fruit pizza before (delicious) but never with a "crust" like yours. Thank you!!!
Love these. So cute and great for parties 🙂
Can these be made the day before or do they get soggy?'
If they get soggy, can you at least ice them the day before?
This looks so delicious! I can't wait to make it. Thank you for the great recipe Gina!
