Healthy Breakfast Fruit Pizza Recipe – Smooth, lightened-up cream cheese frosting and beautiful fresh fruit sit atop of an incredibly delicious and sweet oatmeal crust.
Move over Pepperoni Pizza! Fruit Pizza is where it’s at!
…Okay. THAT is just totally false. I ❤ pepperoni pizza! but this will do. for now.
Hey Hey, pretty friends! Happy Fridaaaaay! Hope you’ve got awesome plans for the coming weekend! I’m too cold to step outside. It’s like -53 out here, in good ol’ Indian-er. Every time I walk out the door, feels like pins come flying at my face. Can.not. WAIT until Monday. Sandy beaches, here I come!
But, you know, in thinking about my upcoming vacay to Punta Cana, I suddenly got a taste for all things fruit. Like, Pina Coladas and Bahama Mamas.
However, I decided to pace myself and look forward to having those while laying out on the beach in a few short days. Meanwhile, I made us this Healthy Breakfast Fruit Pizza and it was the best breakfast of ev-er. Honestly. It hit the spot, yo! It might not be a Pina Colada, but this stuff is pretty awesome!
The whole idea for this recipe actually stems from an oldie – which I shared with you couple years back – this amazing Strawberry Coconut Oatmeal Crunch Pie. I’ve been crushing on it for years and I will never stop.
The first time I made this newer Fruit Pizza version, I took it out of the fridge, tasted a bite and screamed “YAS!!!” inside my head. I was thrilled with the recipe. A little tweak here, some frosting there, variety of fruits on top, and voila! The most perfectly perfect breakfast. It fed the 4 of us, two days in a row for breakfast, but if left alone, I would have smashed it all in one sitting. Because, as you know, when nobody is watching, calories just don’t exist.
BUT you don’t have to worry about that either, because a slice of this is one, filling, and will keep you satisfied up until lunch, and two, it’s delicious!

This recipe looks yummy but one of my guests doesn’t like coconut. Any suggestions on a sub for the coconut? Or can I skip it?
Yes, you can definitely skip it. Keep in mind, though, that without the coconut, it won’t taste as intended. Still good! But not the same. ☺️
Yum! Thanks for sharing!
I would argue that if you add ¾-cup maple syrup to anything it stops being healthy, therefore, I feel like the key words diet or healthy were used as click bait in this post.
Hi. First of all, I don’t have to use click bait – I do fine without it. Please don’t accuse me of such things.
Secondly, that is 3/4 cup of said ingredient in the ENTIRE pizza pie. A serving of this breakfast pizza pie is 1/8 – how much maple syrup are you going to consume in 1 serving? Maybe an ounce? Are you considering all the fruit and all the oats, which is what you are mostly going to have?
The word “healthy” gets thrown around a lot and sometimes it all comes down to what YOU consider as healthy. For me, this will do it. It beats a fried breakfast doughnut.
P.S. Thank you for reminding me to include honey OR maple syrup.
This is one of my favorite recipes, perfect for a spring brunch!
Thanks for the idea. It looks amazing! I think I might try it with Greek yogurt instead of cream cheese. Do you think that would work?
Okay to make the night before?
Hi Karen! Yes, you absolutely can, but the bananas and strawberries will brown. You might want to make the crust the night before and add the fruits the next morning.
I stopped reading this because you wouldn’t get to point. I scrolled down to the comments instead because I literally visited this to find the recipe not to read about the vaca you’re going to take. Kind of ridiculous. Plus the comments on pinterest say the same thing. I ignored them but then just wasted my time here.
I’m sorry you feel that you wasted your time here, on my blog. I am also in disbelief that you basically told me to shut up on my own website. A blog that I write, a blog where I share MY recipes and my stories. You thought it was okay to come on here and tell me, in my own “home”, to shut up!? I’m honestly shocked and surprised.
Wow, what a rude comment… You don’t have to read her recipe… Go troll somewhere else.
This looks fantastic and I’m sure tastes even better than it looks…. But I wouldn’t go so far as to say it is healthy! Too much sugar for one serving. Could lighten it up a little bit, maybe use honey instead of maple syrup and get rid of the powdered sugar somehow. 🙂
Now this is the kind of breakfast I want to be eating – sounds like a dream!
Breakfast pizza? I’m sold! This looks amazing!
Your fruit pizza looks seriously delish and a lot more interesting than my average breakfast!
What a beautiful breakfast pizza, seriously gorgeous! Have fun at the beach…I’m so envious 😉
OMG THAT CRUST. You are my hero.
This isn’t fair Katerina! You’re giving me the P word but showing up with fruit 😉 Loos insanely delicious though!
