Looking for a super easy recipe to make for the 4th? We’ve got you covered! The pizza “crust” is straight from the tube sugar cookie dough, the rest is just adding toppings in a fun flag pattern. If you’ve got kids around this is easy enough for them to help decorate. And with lots of fresh fruit, it’s a little less indulgent than some other Independence Day treats!
- 1 tube Refrigerated Sugar Cookie Dough approx. 16.5 oz
- 8 oz Cream Cheese softened
- 2/3 cup Sugar
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla
- 8 oz Whipped Topping thawed
- 12 oz Fresh Raspberries 3 to 4 cups
- 1 dry pint Fresh Blueberries about 2 cups
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Open tube of cookie dough and slice into 1/4 inch pieces.
- Place all but one of the cookie dough slices on a lightly greased 12-inch pizza pan and press into an even layer. Use a cookie cutter or a knife to cut a star and bake separately or at the same time as the pizza.
- Bake cookie crust 11-12 minutes until lightly browned. Cool.
- Beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla together until smooth. Beat in half the whipped topping. Fold in the remaining whipped topping.
- Scoop a little less than half of the cream cheese mixture onto the cookie crust and spread it all the way to the edges of the crust.
- Use blueberries to outline the pizza and create the blue portion of the flag, and top with the star cookie.
- Use raspberries to create seven red stripes.
- Use the rest of the cream cheese mixture to pipe in the white stripes. You can also spread the mixture into the stripes.
- Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
