This Strawberry Pizza has a buttery sugar cookie crust, sweet cream cheese filling, fresh juicy sliced strawberries, and topped with creamy whipped topping. This delicious sweet treat is always a big hit and devoured anytime it is served.

Strawberries are perfect for savory dishes like strawberry shrimp ceviche cocktail or strawberry jalapeno meatballs to sweet desserts like strawberry cake mix cookies or no-bake strawberry cheesecake parfaits. Any way you serve up strawberries they’re always a heavenly!

I have to say I love all things strawberry! I guess it stands to reason since I am from the winter strawberry capital of the world!

That right! My little hometown produces the most delicious strawberries you can find! We even have a Strawberry Festival to pay tribute to the marvelous berry. For this, I am one lucky girl!

Late November through April I can get really farm-fresh local berries and I am all about making scrumptious strawberry recipes! This strawberry pizza recipe has to be one of my favorites (my family loves it too)!

And when I can’t get them locally they are easy to find from other US areas delivered right to my grocery store! Making this strawberry dessert something I can serve nearly year-round.

No matter what time of year I serve this, it’s always gobbled right up!

Ingredient Notes:

  • Refrigerated cookie dough: A roll or sliced cookie dough will work here. How much you will need will depend on your pizza pan. For a 12 to 14-inch pan 1 roll or package of sliced will work.
  • Cream Cheese: Block cream cheese is the base of this sweetened no-bake cheesecake filling.
  • Powdered Sugar: Also known as confectioners sugar is light airy and sweetens the cream cheese without leaving a texture or bite.
  • Vanilla Extract: This adds a nice smooth flavor with a hint of vanilla.
  • Fresh Sliced Strawberries: Strawberries are the star of the show here. Fresh, sweet, and delicious. Grab them locally when in season, but you can usually find them in your grocery store just about year-round.
  • Whipped topping: Go for frozen and thawed whipped topping to add a creamy and delicious finish to this strawberry dessert. If you prefer homemade whipped cream that works just as well!

How to Make a Dessert Strawberry Pizza

Be sure to see the recipe card below for exact ingredients and instructions!

Step 1: Prepare pizza pan and cookie dough crust.

Preheat the oven to 350° and lightly spray the pan with cooking spray.

Place sliced cookies onto the pizza pan and press them into the bottom of the pan. You can also use a roll of cookie dough and either slice or roll it out onto the pan.

If you do not have a lipped pan I recommend not going all the way to the edge as the cookie dough will expand as it cooks.

Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool completely.

Step 2 | Prepare No-Bake Cheesecake Filling & Slice Berries

Step 2 Strawberry Pizza: Cream cheese filling mixed in a glass bowl and sliced strawberries on a cutting board with a green pairing knife.

Step 3 | Layer Cream Cheese Filling, Strawberries, and Whipped Topping

Step 3: Add cheesecake filling to top of cookie crust then top with sliced strawberries.

Beat softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until creamy. Then spread the mixture on the completely cooled sugar cookie.

Slice strawberries with a pairing knife or remove stems and slice with a strawberry slicer?

Place sliced berries on top of the cream cheese mixture.

Top with thawed whipped topping (like Cool Whip) or fresh whipped cream.

Tips

  • If you do not have a lipped pan I recommend not pressing the cookie dough all the way to the edge of the pizza pan as it will expand as it cooks and may spill over into the oven.
  • After rinsing the strawberries be sure to pat them dry or let them dry on paper towels. Excess water will cause the berries to run and make the dessert soggy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make this Gluten-Free?

Use a gluten-free cookie base and whipped topping. As of now, Cool Whip does not contain ingredients that contain gluten, however, they do not certify it as gluten-free. Just make sure the whipped topping you choose does not contain gluten or make a homemade whipped topping.

Can I make this with a Glaze?

While we love this recipe without a glaze if you want you sure can add a glaze to this pizza. You can purchase a canned strawberry glaze or one in a plastic container in your produce department. Either mix it with the strawberries or place it on top of the cream cheese mixture then top with berries.

Can I use Homemade Whipped Cream instead of Cool Whip?

You sure can. Homemade Whipped Cream is easy to make by whipping up heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla until stiff peaks form. I would suggest serving it the same day if you are making it with fresh whipped cream.

Variations and Substitutions:

  • Change up the fruit with whatever you can get fresh in season. It’s delicious with blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and even peaches. You can even use multiple fruits or berries.
  • Try a brownie bottom or a different flavor cookie crust! Who doesn’t love chocolate chip or even a macadamia nut crust! YUM!
  • Use sliced apples and drizzle with caramel. Maybe try this with a snickerdoodle cookie bottom.
  • For the holidays – use a heart-shaped pan for Valentine’s Day or an oval-shaped pan to make an Easter Egg Dessert Pizza. You can find just about any shape of pan to fit the occasion.
  • If you don’t have a pizza pan you can use a rectangle pan and cut it into squares.

Storage:

To store this strawberry fruit pizza cover it in plastic wrap or foil and keep it in the refrigerator. For best freshness, it will last about 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator.

Since the strawberries produce water after a few days the crust can become a little soggy. It still tastes yummy, but best if eaten in 3 days.

Make-Ahead:

You can make this up a day ahead of time or make it the day of. I recommend if you are making it ahead, add the whipped topping just before serving. This will keep the topping from getting messed up by the plastic wrap and also from separating, especially if you choose to use homemade whipped cream.

What to serve Strawberry Dessert Pizza with?

This is a perfect spring dessert and goes wonderful with your Easter Dinner, it is also delicious in the summertime too!

We love this with just about anything, but it’s wonderful alongside your favorite burger, perfect with BBQ, and a delicious end to a Sunday supper!
