Need ideas for 4th of July desserts? This fruit pizza is perfect for your celebration, or for Memorial Day too! (Really, anytime you need a quick and delicious dessert!)

For years now we’ve had a tradition of hosting friends for dinner on the 4th of July. My husband always cooks (yay!) and we have a fun time visiting before we head out to the local fireworks show! My easy, go-to dessert is always brownies, but this year I am looking to change things up a bit!

I still wanted something just as easy as brownies made from a box, and I think this Patriotic Fruit Pizza is perfect!! I’ve never attempted any type of a flag cake dessert, but it turned out great!

You can watch the quick recipe video here, or view the full instructions down below! 


I say patriotic because it’s red, white, and blue, but you could easily make this anytime and add whatever fruit you’d like! Mandarin oranges and kiwi are great additions!
