We LOVE pizza at our house, including yummy sugar cookie fruit pizza. Our mom has been making this treat for us since we were little and we think that this recipe is the best.
Take our mom’s famous sugar cookie recipe, add a sweet cream cheese layer and top it off fresh fruit- this counts as healthy food, right?
These are so easy and fun to make, plus you can get the kids involved and let them decorate their own mini pizza. This is also always a huge hit when we take it to parties.
The recipe below either makes about 36-48 cookies (depending on what size you make them) OR one large pizza with 12-18 cookies leftover.

Why should I chill the cookie dough?
Chilling the cookie dough chemically changes the cookie dough.
Chilling the dough allows the sugar to take on more moisture and fats in the cookie dough, allowing sweeter tasting cookies.
They are also slower to burn when refrigerated. They cook more evenly.
We recommend refrigerating your cookie dough for about 30 minutes. We have found (scientifically as well) that this is the desired amount of time for cookie dough to refrigerate.
