Ingredients & Variations

CRUST: To keep this recipe extra easy, we use premade sugar cookie dough and press it into a pizza pan. Use homemade sugar cookie dough if you’d like.

FILLING: Cream cheese is sweetened with a bit of sugar and vanilla extract. Add a little lemon zest, orange zest, or other extracts like almond. Short on time? Swap it out for cream cheese frosting!

FRUIT: This is where the fun begins! With a bounty of fresh summer produce, the possibilities are endless!

VARIATIONS: For different fillings, use instant pudding (chocolate or vanilla). Try lemon curd, yogurt, Nutella… the possibilities really are endless! Top it with any fruit glaze or sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Make Ahead

The crust can be made up to 4 days ahead of time, wrapped in plastic wrap, and refrigerated. The filling can also be made 4 days ahead of time stored in a separate container.

On the day of serving, bring the cream cheese mixture to room temperature before spreading.

Fruit is best prepared the day of serving although, depending on the fruit choices, it can be prepared 1 day ahead of time. Ensure the fruit is dabbed dry if making ahead and choose fruits that aren’t too juicy or won’t oxidize (turn brown).

  1. I love my Fridge Fresh. I just have to remember to check occasionally to see if I need to change the batteries. It really does keep odors down and fruits and vegetables fresh. I’ve had mine for a few years and it still works great.5 stars
