image from

In honor of fruit day, the kids can make this easy no-bake fruit pizza!

Fruit and Gelatin Pizza


  • Gelatin, any flavor - enough to cover 16 serving sizes
  • Water
  • Bowl
  • Spoon
  • Pizza pan
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • Assorted fruits (strawberries, apples, bananas, oranges, pineapple, cantaloupe, watermelon, kiwi fruit)
  • Knife
  • Whipped topping


  1. Boil 2 ½ cups water in microwave; add to gelatin and stir until gelatin is completely dissolved - about 2 minutes.
  2. Spray pizza pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Put pan in fridge to chill until firm - about 3 hours.
  4. Remove pan from fridge when ready to serve.
  5. Fill sink with about 1 inch warm water; carefully dip just the bottom of the pan into water for about 15 seconds.
  6. Spread whipped topping over gelatin just before serving, leaving about an inch all around for the “crust.”
  7. Top with cut-up fruit.
