Sugar Cookie Easter Egg Fruit Pizza
I had a roll of store-bought sugar cookie dough in the fridge. I don’t even know how it got there, but I wasn’t going to waste it.
Ever since a co-worker back in the 90s brought a fruit pizza to work, I’ve been mesmerized by them! This was my chance to make one! And since it’s close to Easter, why not make it an Easter treat in the shape of an Easter egg?
I was kind of worried about getting the egg shape, because, fancy baking isn’t my skill set.
After letting the cookie dough warm-up, I squished it into a ball. I placed it right on my baking sheet and just rolled it out… and it magically rolled out in the shape of an egg! How lucky was that?
After I baked it, and it was cool, I spread the most delicious cream cheese frosting over the top. From there, it was all about getting creative. I had a variety of fruits in all the right colors.
You really can’t mess this part up. Just channel your creative side and have fun!

What Fruits are Best for Sugar Cookie Pizzas
When I created this Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizza to look like an Easter egg, I wanted bright colors. But you can use any of your favorite fruits you’d like. I would, however, avoid any fruits that may be more watery, like watermelon.
- Mandarin Orange wedges
- Pomegranate seeds
Can I Make this Sugar Cookie Easter Egg Fruit Pizza Ahead of Time?
Yes and no. You can make up the cookie portion and even frost it ahead of time, then make sure you’ve covered it carefully with plastic wrap. You’ll want to add the fruit the day you’re serving it. Otherwise, placing the fruit on ahead of time could make the cookie portion soggy.
