This Fruit Pizza is so yummy – you’ll feel like you are eating something naughty. But in fact, because it is made with whole wheat, honey, and fruit, I believe you could serve it for breakfast. Since figuring out this recipe, I may have done that a time or two at our house. ;)
You will love how easy this is to make!
Fruit Pizza Crust
1 1/2 cups Whole Wheat Quick Mix
1/2 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mix ingredients together. Press (or pour) dough into an 8×8 inch baking dish. Bake in a 350° oven for 10-15 minutes or until it is slightly golden. Allow crust to cool.
Cream Cheese Layer
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 Tablespoons real maple syrup
Mix well and spread over cooled crust. Top with fresh fruit. (Berries, bananas, and kiwi work best.)
Serves 4-6. I typically double this recipe for my family and spread the crust into my large baking stone.
I’d love to know – have you made the Whole Wheat Quick Mix yet?! More sneak peeks into our upcoming Oh, For Real book still to come!
Yummy! Those berries look so mouthwatering to me this morning!

This looks really, really good! I did make a half recipe of the Quick Mix, but haven’t had a chance to try one of your recipes yet. This just might make me do it :)
Have you ever tried making it fingerfood? Maybe putting it out on a cookie sheet and pressing the dollop down with your fingers or maybe the bottom of a glass. Then decorating each for single serve at a party or something? What do you think?
Maybe even putting it into the mini muffin pans for cooking.
My daughter Evelyn thinks what would be better then the cream cheese would be whipped cream.
That is probably how we will have it as we don’t usually have cream cheese, but we do have cream off our milk.
Cream cheese and whipped cream together would be decadent too!
How might this be converted to a non-quick mix recipe? We don’t use quick mix here but I love the fruit pizza idea.
Hmmm, I don’t know. This works great with quick mix so I haven’t thought about making it another way. Maybe with a sugar cookie dough for the crust. :)
If you like a math challenge, you should be able to take the quick mix recipe
and figure the ratios. I didn’t do the actual math to get an exact amount
but the mix makes approx. 11 cups. So for this recipe, I would estimate
1 1/2 C flour
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp sugar (opt)
1/4 tsp salt
7 Tbsp shortening
I haven’t tried it or done the precise math. These are just quick guess-timates.

Thanks for the quick mix recipe recently as well as the fruit pizza I have the palm shortening so the mix will be easy to throw together. I plan to use it to top pot pies, for crust for my openface burger bake recipe and a fruit pizza! I like to bring fruit pizza for church fellowship food after service on Sunday mornings. Blessings,
Marie B, would you mind sharing the recipe for yor openface burger bake? Sounds great and kid friendly. Thanks!
Marie B. says
Sure! It is a very flexible recipe and I layer in whatever veggies I have around and might taste yummy on a burger!: onions, mushrooms, zuchinni. I’ve also seasoned the beef w/ chili powder & cumin to make a taco bake.
1 lb. ground beef (browned & seasoned to taste w/ salt & pepper)
1 c. sour cream (or plain yogurt)
2/3 c. mayonnaise
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
2 T. chopped onion
2 c. Baking Mix (or Laura’s Quick Mix!)
1/2 c. cold water
2-3 tomatoes, thinly sliced (or chopped, or use 1-14 oz. can of diced tomatoes)
3/4 c. chopped green peppers (or substitute chopped yellow squash, zucchini, onions or/& mushrooms)
Heat oven to 375. Grease oblong 9×13 pan. Mix sour cream, mayo, cheese & onion in a small bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, stir Laura’s Quick Mix and water to a soft dough; beat vigorously 20 strokes. Pat dough in pan, pressing 1/2 in. up sides of pan. Layer beef, tomatoes & green pepper (or other veggies) on dough. Spoon sour cream mixture over top. Bake until edges of dough are light brown, 25-30 min.
Hope you like it!
Thank you! It sounds yummy, and I can’t wait to try it!

Haven’t tried these recipes yet, but I’ve been saving them in my Plan to Eat recipes!
Collecting the quick mix recipes and plan to make a batch of the mix after an out-of-town trip. Can’t wait to try it! Thanks SO much for helping us eat real, healthier food.
YUMMY!!! Planning to make this for breakfast this week. Definitely acceptable!
Lori Duncan says
I made the quick mix several days ago and we have had the pancakes and the vanilla cookies. They were both yummy! It is AWESOME as a busy mom of 7 children to quickly throw together some yummy, wholesome treats for my family. Thanks for these recipes! Looking forward to trying the fruit pizza!
And the muffins and biscuits when you post them!!
I only made a 1/2 of the quick mix because I am out of wheat berries and almost out of my freshly ground whole wheat flour. Now I am out of quick mix! BUMMER! Got to get some wheat berries soon!
P.S. in my vanilla cookies today I added 1/2 tsp almond extract and mini chocolate chips and that was wonderful!
Yes, I made your quick mix last week and I’ve made the biscuits, pancakes, AND vanilla cookies lol! They’re all great! I love how easy it is! I used to use Bisquick regularly, but since switching to whole grain, from-scratch cooking, stopped buying it about a year ago. I love this healthy version, thank you!
NO, BUT I WANT TO,,,
My kids and I made this today, and we had it for dessert tonight. All 7 of us loved it, and my husband plans to have some for breakfast. He was skeptical at the thought of fruit pizza, but I think he’s now the biggest fan :-) We’ve also had the cookies, and I can say the quick mix is a hit here.
I haven’t had fruit pizza in years! Thanks for making a healthier version of this recipe. I’m sure my girls would love helping make it. It sounds like a yummy birthday treat idea for school.
I made this for breakfast this morning and it was delicious. Not sure I’ll do it as the first meal of the day again, very sweet! Problem though- mine didn’t set in the middle. Not sure what happened…?
I made the quick mix the other day but when i took it out of the freezer it was super clumpy:\ has anyone else had this happen? And it took a good deal of mixing yo get it to unclump…kinda took the quick out of quick mix. But the pancakes were yummy once I got it mixed!

I used coconut oil in mine and the freezer turned some into huge rocks. I think I’ll just keep mine in the fridge so its cool but won’t take so long to make the oil pliable again. I ended up putting my metal bowl of quick mix rocks in hot water and playing with it a bit, definitely took the “quick” out of it like you said.
You know, now that you mention it, that has happened to me occasionally. I try to remember to get it out of the freezer the night before I want to use it. :)
Oh okay. Do you just take out what you need? Because I found it difficult to measure:/ and is I t okay for the wheat to not be frozen?? Im still learning about all this lol
I actually take out my whole container overnight so that it will measure easily the next morning.
Just made this for breakfast today and it was delicious!! Another winner from Laura! :)
Yes, I have made the quick mix exactly as you said,right down to the palm shortening & sucanat. From that I have made your Very Vanilla Cookies (with homemade vanilla like you taught us to make!) and the Honey Cinnamon Muffins. I also made a coffee cake from this mix which also worked well. Do you see what kind of a wonderful influence you have upon your reading audience?! I thank you ever so much for your labors, instructions, and inspiration to help us cook yummy and nutritious food for our families.
I love the idea of a fruit pizza. I just need some cream cheese. Your quick mix is fab. It is great that it store in the freezer – I never have enough room in the fridge.
I finally made the quick mix a couple weeks ago and I LOVE it! Thank you so much! My husband loves the Quick Mix Biscuits and he is totally a white flour biscuit kind of guy! Can’t wait to try this. Thank you for helping me feed my family well with little stress!!!
Could you make the whole fruit pizza the night before and cover in the fridge? Or would it mushy? I dont have time to cook in the mornings.
I bake the “crust” the night before, and prep the fruit – but I don’t put it together until the next morning to prevent it from getting soggy. But since most of the prep work is done the night before, I find it goes together very quickly in the morning so that we can hit the day running!
I made this recipe this morning and it was great, but a little too sweet for our taste. Do you think 2 eggs and 1/4 cup honey would be enough liquid?
[email protected] says
Yes, that would be enough liquid. I hope it turns out great!
This was delicious! I topped it with strawberries, bananas and blueberries and a little homemade whipped cream and my family loved it! (I also used coconut oil in the quick mix and it was great, thanks!)
