I love making this fruit pizza because I know my kids will eat it too and while there is sugar and the crust is a cookie- they are getting some fruit as well. I use a pizza cutter to make triangle shapes for everyone to enjoy. The fruit will sweat a little bit so if you make this ahead of time I keep the cookie and icing ready to go in the refrigerator and then before we leave or serve I add the fruit to the top.
You can substitute whatever fruits you like: kiwi, cherries, peaches and more.
