A simple and patriotic dessert with fresh strawberries, raspberries, and blue berries for a red, white, and blue fruit pizza dessert.
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.
