My uncle’s birthday was July 4th and some of my fondest memories of summertime were celebrating his birthday at our house with a pool party. My mom or my aunt would prepare this dessert every year as his cake! As I was adding the strawberries to this cookie, all of those precious memories came flooding back- I love it how little things in life can mean so much!πŸ’•

Can I use chocolate chip cookie dough instead?

Yes! You can definitely use chocolate chip cookie dough! We went with sugar cookie dough to keep it simple, but isn’t everything better with chocolate chips?!?!?

Do I have to use pre-made cookie dough?

You do not need to use the pre-made dough if you want to make your own! We love how easy it makes this recipe, but you are welcome to use your own!

If I don’t like cream cheese, can I use a different icing?

Sure! You can do a simple white icing with this pizza, but we think the cream cheese mixture really adds to the taste!

How to make our Sugar Cookie Flag Fruit Pizza:

Preheat oven to 350. Roll sugar cookie dough out to fit a rectangular cookie sheet. This will be rolled out very thin, if you would like a thicker cookie, use 2 rolls of dough.

Once dough has been rolled, using a fork, press marks into dough to keep it from rising during baking. Bake in oven for 10-12 minutes, being very careful not to burn. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.

While the cookie is cooling, in a medium mixing bowl, combine cream cheese and powdered sugar. Mix until smooth. Set aside.
