Get Ready for 4th of July with Patriotic Fruit Pizza

“This Independence Day, take a step back and cherish your life and the country you live in while appreciating the sacrifices people made to give us independence today.”

As we prepare to celebrate one of the most important dates in our history, I thought you might enjoy sharing a festive 4th of July tasty treat with family and friends.

My recipe for Patriotic Fruit Pizza starts with a crunchy, buttery pecan crust with a cream cheese filling, then topped with a strawberry glaze, additional fresh sweet berries and whipped cream.


You may be asked to pledge allegiance to serving this dessert more often. 🙂 It is also delicious with peaches in place of the strawberries and blueberries.

Happy 4th of July to each of you! Enjoy the recipe for Patriotic Fruit Pizza below.
