Why You’ll Adore this Cream Cheese Frosting for Fruit Pizza:

  • Effortless to make
  • Only three ingredients required
  • Deliciously sweet, without being overly sugary
  • Customizable to suit your preferences

Ingredients for Fruit Pizza Icing:

  • Cream Cheese: Ensure your cream cheese is softened before use. This will make it easier to combine with the other ingredients, resulting in a wonderfully smooth icing.
  • Sugar: Powdered sugar is recommended.
  • Vanilla: Opt for pure vanilla extract, as it offers a superior flavor compared to imitation extracts.


I adore the subtle vanilla flavor in this frosting. It’s not overpowering; instead, it’s light, aromatic, and pairs beautifully with any fruit topping you choose.

  • You can prepare this fruit pizza icing using a stand mixer or mix it by hand. Just ensure that all the ingredients are thoroughly combined for a smooth icing.
  • While full-fat cream cheese is recommended for the best results, you can substitute it with low-fat cream cheese if preferred—it will still work well.
  • Use a block of cream cheese rather than a cream cheese spread, as spreads contain excess liquid and can result in a runny icing.

Making it Ahead:

When I make this icing, I often prepare a large batch as it has a relatively long shelf life. Once made, transfer it to an airtight container or a bowl covered with plastic wrap, and it will keep for up to three days.

How to Store:

  • Room Temperature: This cream cheese frosting for fruit pizza spreads best when it’s at room temperature. It can remain at room temperature for up to two hours while serving.
  • Refrigerator: Store this frosting in an airtight container in the refrigerator, where it will last for at least three days.
  • Freezer: The cream cheese icing can also be frozen for up to one month. Thaw it in the refrigerator overnight before use.
