Fruit Pizza

Everyone will remember this dramatic dessert. It’s basically a giant decorated sugar cookie. Soft fruit works best and sliced bananas should be coated with lemon juice to keep from turning brown. Serve within an hour or two, otherwise refrigerate. - Jenny Jones

    I’ve been quarancooking with Jenny’s recipes since mid-March. For my small family, the “stay at home” has created the space and time for me to get back to enjoying cooking after about 6 years of trying to live the rat race and raise my son as a single mom. For his 20th birthday this week, he requested sushi, a fruit tart and/or a chocolate cake. So we ordered a big sushi spread from our neighborhood sushi restaurant and I made both desserts for him using Jenny’s recipes since he can’t celebrate with friends. Jenny’s fruit tart recipe made me realize just how easy fruit tarts are to make! My crust did stick a little too much even though I buttered the Corning Ware pie dish, but the tart still came out beautifully and the family (and my son) loved it. Thank you Jenny!

    Jenny, New to your website, but have seen a few of your recipe videos previously. They are all great! I caught on to your sense of humor, and it sets you apart. Then YOUR website. It is awesome, and so are you with making the proceeds of book sales to breast cancer research. You are one awesome lady! Thank you so much for sharing your 2005 cookbook, your knowledge and experience of cooking, and your story of your loving dad. It’s all so good to read. God bless you!

    I have wanted to make this but it doesn’t say what kind of marmalade, there are many out there?

    • Jenny

      I use orange marmalade but there are many other glaze recipes that you can use on my fruit pizza.

    Hi Jenny,
    Due to members of the family having dairy allergies, what substitutes do you recommend for the 1% milk and the cream cheese that some of your recipes require?

    I absolutely ADORE your videos. I wish each of your recipes came with one.

    Thank you,

    Gina. 🙂

    • Jenny

      I wish I knew but I have no experience with dairy free. If they have allergies, maybe they already have products that they consume that could be used.

      • Irene

        I’m Asian and we use coconut milk and tofu a lot in our dishes. You might try using them as substitutes. Good luck !

    Can u use any jam for a glaze. Not a fan of marmalade?

    • Jenny

      Red currant jelly is often used as a glaze and I also like apricot jam but you can use any seedless jam. Look around at other fruit tart recipes for more glaze ideas.

    I made this once for my sister, instead of a birthday cake, and now that’s all she wants, so I’ve been making it for her for past 5-6 years! This one looks gorgeous!!
