Is there anything more patriotic than munching on a creamy 4th of July fruit pizza? Didn’t think so! This special holiday is all about barbecues, fireworks, and red, white, and blue desserts.

You may have seen these colorful fruity treats on Pinterest or maybe even had a slice at a BBQ over the summer. Traditionally fruit pizzas are made with sugar cookies as the base. Today, we are turning that on its head and using the buttery, flaky and irresistible Pillsbury crescent rolls.

Yes, this patriotic dessert is almost too pretty to eat. But luckily, it’s made out of simple ingredients and there’s barely any cooking involved. No special measurements, no mixing, or kneading required.  Just pop the crescent rolls dough in the oven for about 10 minutes and let them completely cool.

HOW TO MAKE THE CREAM CHEESE FROSTING:

Meanwhile, grab a large mixing bowl and add the cream cheese and beat until it’s fluffy. Then, sift in the powdered sugar. If you want to take it to the next level, add a pinch of salt, a tablespoon of milk, and 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Keep whipping until the mix is smooth and fluffy.

Now comes the fun part. Spread the creamy mix onto the crescent rolls.

Place 2-3 tablespoons of the mix inside a Ziploc bag and set it aside for a second. Use some fresh blueberries to design the blue portion of the 4th of July fruit pizza and sliced strawberries to create the red stripes. Pro tip: dab the strawberries with a paper towel to get rid of excess moisture and to avoid any bleeding onto the cream cheese.
