It’s summer, it’s the weekend, and it’s time for Tropical Fruit Pizza, you guys.
By that, I mean a giant coconut sugar cookie topped with cream cheese pastry cream, fresh tropical fruit, and shredded coconut. Tropical TO THE MAX!
Maybe I’m late to the pizza-is-not-just-for-dinner party, but it wasn’t until last summer that I even knew fruit pizza was a thing. I saw one and I was totally in love with the idea; fruit-topped sugar cookie goodness is something I can defffinitley get on board with. So why, WHY it took me this long to make my own is… I don’t even know.
The thing is, there are a ton of fruit pizza recipes out there, and I wanted mine to be a little different. And I kinda have a new, slight obsession with coconut oil, so I got on this whole tropical track. Turns out, coconut sugar cookies are the way to go, and crazzzzy good. Most fruit pizzas are topped with frosting, but I also have a thing where I try to turn dessert into breakfast, so I figured pastry cream would lighten the whole thing up a bit. Then, I just had to get my hand on whatever tropical fruits I could find in California (not exactly the center of the tropics, ya know), so I ended up with a tropical trifecta of mango, kiwi, and pineapple. Each slice is like a little bit of island paradise, in dessert form.
You can find the recipe for this fruit pizza at Best Friends for Frosting. Happy weekend!
