Learn how to make an easy and tasty patriotic fruit pizza with your kids. It’s a great dessert for Labor Day, Veterans Day, or the 4th of July.

Cooking and baking are some of my favorite things to do and I love it when my kids want to help. We are raising a house full of boys and I plan to teach every one of them how to cook for themselves or their future families.

Right now, while they are still young, the best recipes to have them help with are ones that are easy and hands-on for them!

This fruit pizza recipe is a perfect one for kids! It has a bunch of kid-friendly steps and uses pre-made dough for less waiting. Mine love to help press the sugar cookie crust into the pan, spread out the filling, and, of course, decorate the top with fruit!

The strawberries and blueberries make a pretty patriotic-themed dessert, but we’ve also made this with all kinds of fruit! Kiwi, grapes, mandarin oranges, cherries, and pineapple have made for some delicious and beautiful fruit pizzas!

2. Break apart both tubes of sugar cookie dough into small pieces and spread evenly in pan.

3. Using your fingers, press down the sugar cookie dough in an even layer to form a crust. It’s okay if the dough isn’t completely smooth. It will even out with baking and be covered with a cream cheese filling!

4. Bake crust for 15-20 minutes or until crust is set and is a light golden brown. When in doubt, do not overbake! This fruit pizza is best with a softer crust.
