Patriotic Fruit Pizza
It's not always easy to find the right red, white and blue dessert for a 4th of July party. Something that is easy to make and looks cute. This fruit pizza is easy, cute, and delicious!
What is the Crust of a Fruit Pizza Made From?
It's a giant sugar cookie. And the easy part is that you don't have to make it from scratch (unless you want to). All you need is a tube of refrigerated cookie dough from the grocery store.
Can I Use Store Bought Frosting?
My frosting recipe for this Patriotic Fruit Pizza is a little lighter and less sweet than the store bought frosting, but yes you can.
Look for a cream cheese frosting, or vanilla if you prefer.
Whatever is easiest or most convenient for you. There are several brands of frosting from the store you can buy, and then you are all set.

Can This Fruit Pizza Recipe Be Made Ahead?
Yes it can be made in advance of your party. Keep it chilled if you are making it more than a few hours in advance.
When you set it out on your party table, try to keep it out of the hot sun.
Let the Kids Help!
This is a great way to get the kids into the kitchen! Let them help with frosting and adding the berries to the fruit pizza.

Patriotic Fruit Pizza
- Hand Mixer
- Cookie Sheet
- 1 (16.5 oz) tube Refrigerated Sugar Cookie Dough
- 1 pint Fresh Blueberries
- 8 oz Fresh Raspberries*
- 8 oz Cream Cheese, room temp
- 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, room temp
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 cup Powdered Sugar
- 4 oz (1/2 of an 8 oz tub) Whipped Topping (such as Cool Whip©)
- Preheat Oven to 350°F.
- On a parchment lined baking sheet or 14" pizza pan, roll, or press the cookie dough with your hands, to form a 12" circle about 1/8" thick.
- Bake for 10 to 14 minutes, or until just turning light golden in color. It will be soft when you take it out of the oven.
- Let the cookie cool completely.
- Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and butter until smooth.
- Add the vanilla and half of the powdered sugar. Beat on low speed until fully incorporated. Add remaining powdered sugar and mix in.
- Fold in the whipped topping until fully incorporated. Place frosting in the fridge to chill and become a little firmer.
- When the cookie is completely cooled, carefully transfer to the serving dish or board. Make sure you can use a knife on it.
- Spread the frosting over the cookie in an even layer, to the edges. Use all of the frosting.
- Arrange the blueberries in a circle going around the edge (circumference) of the pizza. Then place one blueberry in the center of the pizza and make a line of blueberies straight up. Make another line of blueberries from the center berry to the left. Then fill in that triangle with blueberries.
- Make 7 rows of raspberries, evenly spaced, one row starting at the top of the pizza, and the last row at the very bottom. This makes the red & white stripes (see photos).
- To serve, cut in wedges/slices as you would a pizza!
