If you want to impress the guests at your 4th of July BBQ, make this amazing fruit pizza! Fruit pizza is a perfect summer dessert, and berries are in season! Not to mention, this red, white, and blue treat is super festive! This dessert looks quite impressive, but is actually really easy to make. Here’s how:
1 roll (16 oz.) sugar cookie dough, softened
1 8 oz. brick of cream cheese, softened
1/2 C granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla (You could also use almond extract!)
1 lb. strawberries
1 pint blueberries
1 pint blackberries
1 pint raspberries
First, roll out your sugar cookie dough onto a round pizza pan. Use the package instructions to bake until done, then let it cool.
Meanwhile, combine softened cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla in the mixer until soft and smooth.
Once the sugar cookie dough is cool, spread cream cheese mixture on top, leaving a little room for a “crust” on the edge.
Wash and pat dry all of your fruit. Hull and slice the strawberries. Starting in the middle of your pizza, make your design. If you want to create a star, use sliced strawberries pointing out. (You can use my picture as a guide!) Or, you could make a “flag” design and add banana slices for your “white stripes.” The options are endless! No matter what your pattern is, your fruit pizza will look beautiful and will surely impress your 4th of July crowd.
