- I originally had fruit pizza at a Pampered Chef party, but didn't care for the sugar cookie base - too sweet. The hostess had also made raw veggie pizza using crescent roll dough, and I thought that would be good with the fruit one too. The nice thing about this recipe is it's versatility; use whichever fruits you prefer - fresh or canned. Be sure to drain all fruits well. Also, I don't usually assemble mine more than a couple of hours before serving so that the crust won't become soggy.
