These fruit pizzas are quick and easy to make and will look gorgeous and taste amazing at your Memorial Day, Fourth of July or summer barbecue outing this summer!
Nothing says summer like fresh berries and I love them all. In June the signs start to appear for strawberry picking and farmer’s markets advertise fresh picked berries. In July the blueberries are in full bloom with the heat, followed quickly by raspberries and blackberries. My favorite is finding a wild blackberry bush in the woods, carefully sliding between thorns, and eating the berries right as I pick them.
When I’m at the grocery store, I swear those berries emit a fragrant smell from halfway across the store aisles. I’m immediately drawn to them and always seem to grab more than I need when they are on sale. This leaves me with finding ways to use them up! And this summer fruit pizza dessert is just right!
With a few simple ingredients, you’ll be on your way to creating a fun dessert for your next summer barbecue. Start with your favorite homemade sugar cookie recipe, or grab a tube of pre-made sugar cookies at the grocery store. Roll them, cut with a cookie cuter, bake and cool. Top with the sweet cream cheese spread and sliced fresh fruit and you’re done!
You don’t need an excuse or party to make these sweet treats. Turn this into a fun dessert night with your family! Encourage everyone to choose their own fruit toppings and make unique creations to enjoy. Perhaps a smiling face made of blueberries and a big raspberry nose. Or add some strawberry spiked hair. No one can resist playing with their food!
These fruit pizzas are delicious any time of the year, but take advantage of the fresh fruit in season and make them for your next Memorial Day summer party or Fourth of July fireworks gathering.
