I’ve always loved making fruit pizza and it’s always been kinda my thing since I was young.

It’s a really really easy recipe and it *always* gets compliments when I make it! So, you can’t go wrong with this.

This fruit pizza has a homemade sugar cookie crust (you could opt for a refrigerated sugar cookie dough but I highly recommend the homemade crust!) and a creamy, fluffy spread topped with fruits and whipped cream.

This is a great dish to take to a summer party or a July 4th celebration – this fruit pizza easily can serve 14-18 people, depending on how big you cut the slices. If you cut them into bars rather than squares, you’ll be able to feed more ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

*I’ve also made this recipe in the form of these mini fruit pizzas and they’re so adorable!

Start by making your crust and letting it cool for a few hours. Then, make your creamy topping and spread it on nice and smooth. Let it chill for 20-30 minutes.

Arrange your fruit as a flag. I started with the blueberries in the top left corner first.

For the red stripes, I used strawberries that I cut in half. Of course, you could use raspberries or cherries if you wanted . . . and you could slice them instead of cutting them in half . . . whatever you wanna do ๐Ÿ˜‰

For the white stripes, I also used Redi-whip. You could just leave them so the creamy topping shows through, but I wanted to add a little bit of depth to mine.

For the stars, I just squirted some Redi-whip on the blueberries.
