I am so behind schedule, which I know is the story of my life! I made this last night, and now I am up at the crack of dawn typing it up, so please forgive any typos 🙂
Pizza night just isn’t complete without this bad boy on the table. There are no words to describe how good this is! I tried to place it last night, and it kind of reminds me of a cheese danish, with tropical fruit, but better! If you are going to have a pizza night anytime soon, this should hands down, be on the menu for dessert!
I decided to make this after I was conned into buying a fresh pineapple this week by my 9 year old. I love fresh pineapple, but I rarely buy it. I have fallen for the stereotype that pineapples are hard to cut. They aren’t ! They are so easy, and you will get atleast 3 cans worth of pineapple out of one whole pineapple. They taste indescribably sweet! I just can’t get enough of them. They are fabulous on the grill. I eat it right out of the bowl, or in a fruit salad. Or, you could put some on your pizza! 😉
Tropical Dessert Pizza
- 1 dessert pizza crust (recipe below)
- 1 8oz pkg of cream cheese
- ¼-1/3 cup of sugar
- Diced pineapple
- Sweetened flaked coconut
- 1 kiwi fruit sliced
- Macadamia nuts (optional)
In a small bowl mix together the cream cheese and sugar.
Spread on to the dessert pizza crust like a sauce. Use it all!
Sprinkle the coconut shreds on top of the pizza like cheese.
Then, add the fruit and nut toppings.
Bake at 425 for 10 minutes or until coconut starts to brown.

You will have to finish mixing by hand; let sit for 5-10 minutes covered by a towel.
Flatten on greased pan, or parchment covered pan.
Use a fork to poke holes in the center of the crust so it doesn’t rise.
Bake empty crust at 425 degrees for 10 minutes
Add whatever sweet topping you want.
Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes or until pizza is finished
