Red White and Blue Fruit Pizza

I am so excited to share this recipe with you today. By now if you’re a regular follower of our blog you should know that I love desserts, but most importantly I love simple desserts. And this recipe is exactly that. Fruit Pizzas can be made any way you like them to make them your own, with a variety of different fruit options, or even dough options. But to make things perfect for Memorial Day (or Fourth of July) we are going with a red, white and blue fruit pizza today. Still delicious, but even more festive and cute than just a normal fruit pizza.

  1. This is a very easy recipe that anyone can make but is super sweet so I’d recommend adding one cup of the sugar and then add more “to taste” depending on your preference. If I make this again, I will use a half a block of cream cheese and a half a jar of Marshmallow Fluff mixed together instead of the Cool Whip and confectioner’s sugar for a better consistency and to better balance with the fruit’s sweetness. The cream cheese and Marshmallow Fluff mixes up like a breeze to a perfect consistency of smoothness every time and is always in balance with the fruit when I use it as a dip for strawberries. A little tangy, a little sweet, and always velvety smooth in texture.

    1. I haven’t tried a frosting with marshmallow creme and cream cheese, but I will have to next time. It sounds delicious!

  2. That’s gorgeous! I want fruit now!
