Star Spangled Fruit Pizza

Star Spangled Fruit Pizza

It’s Independence Day and who wouldn’t love a yummy patriotic themed fruit pizza?  Try this recipe and I promise you won’t be disappointed.  It is one I got off a box of Philadelphia Cream Cheese several years ago and it’s delicious.  Just so happens that I haven’t had time to make this yet, so naturally I have no pictures.  Kraft for the win!

You can use a round or rectangle cookie sheet – which could be fun to do an American flag with.  I recommend using parchment paper so you have no issues with it sticking and ruining the crust of your pizza.   You can definitely serve this directly off the pizza pan or cookie sheet you bake it on, but if you are going for presentation then you will need to invert the pan onto a platter so you don’t have to move it around once you start frosting/decorating. Be careful!

If you want this to be a tad bit healthier and skip the cream cheese, a healthier option is this (and it’s fantastic):

Stupid Good Fruit Dip (originally a Weight Watchers recipe: 1/4 cup = 1 point)
