American Flag fruit pizza
Do you have plans to celebrate the holiday next week? Our neighborhood does an amazing firework display at night.
It's nothing formal, it's just neighbors having fun setting off fireworks at the end of the day. We can sit on our front porch and watch the friendly competition going on between the neighbors.
And when we look up over the mountain we can see the ski resort having their fireworks display as well. It makes for a really nice end to a holiday!
Red, White and Blue Desserts
I have a few red, white and blue desserts that are always fun to make all summer long. My husband loves the 4th of July Cookie Cake or any of the patriotic desserts featured from a few years ago during one of our Delicious Dishes Recipe Parties.

Main Ingredients Needed
Exact measurements are listed below in the recipe card. Make sure you scroll down to print and save the recipe for later!
- 1 pkg 16.5 oz refrigerated sugar cookie dough
- Cream cheese, softened
- Fresh blueberries
- Fresh strawberries
Step 1: Bake the Sugar Cookie Dough
Spread the sugar cookie dough into the bottom of a large rectangle baking pan or tray. Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 12 - 15 minutes or until it is a light golden brown.
Here are a few easy tips for spreading sugar cookie dough out into a rectangle shaped pan.
- I spread my cookie dough out on a piece of waxed paper using a Pastry Roller and then inverted it into my baking pan.
- You can also spread the cookie dough out directly in your baking pan or use a piece of parchment paper.
- Using parchment paper will help getting the cookie dough out of the pan easier as well.
- I decided to use my Large Bar Pan because it makes everything cook perfectly and evenly.
Gently loosen the cookie dough out of the pan. I found my kitchen scraper worked great.
Step 2: Make the Cream Cheese Filling
Mix the cream cheese together with the sugar. I used my Kitchen Aid mixer, but you could easily do this by hand as long as the cream cheese is at room temperature.
Use a strong rubber spatula to make sure you get every last bit of yumminess out of the bowl!
Spread the cream cheese mixture on top of the sugar cookie.
Step 3: How to Slice the Strawberries
There are a few different ways you can slice the strawberries for this dessert:
- Remove the stems from the strawberries. Then wash and dry them.
- Cut each strawberry in half or you can slice the strawberries into thinner pieces.
- I like the idea of thinner pieces of strawberries because I feel it's easier to eat the Flag Pizza.
- Once you decide on either cutting the strawberries in half or slicing them, lay them out on a cutting board or piece of waxed paper in the flag design. This will help give you an idea of how many strawberries you need.
Step 4: How to Decorate the Flag Fruit Pizza
Once you have the cream cheese frosting spread on top of the baked sugar cookie crust, now comes the fun part!
Lay the blueberries out first in the upper corner to create the stars of the flag.I only did four rows of blueberries, but you can do more. Next, add the strawberries to create the stripes of the flag.
Keep the Flag Fruit Pizza refrigerated until you're ready to serve.
Another fun way to make the flag fruit pizza is in the round shape of a pizza! Press the sugar cookie dough out on a round pizza pan and continue with the instructions listed below in the recipe card.
