Happy 4th of July! Fruit Pizza

Hope you all have a wonderful 4th, stay safe!
I am still working on one other patriotic craft and will share that with you all soon. 
I have so many things that i want to get done and share with you all. Stay tuned :)

Last weekend I was invited to a co-workers nieces birthday party. Now if you know me if I am going to a party, I must bring something to share. I love anything and all things patriotic. Lately I have been seeing some photos of some pretty neat ways to decorate fruit pizzas. If you haven't ever had a fruit pizza, I highly recommend trying one. They are amazing and oh so GOOD!

I ended up making two different kinds.
One with a fruit dip and the other with..... NUTELLA!


Lets start with how I did the Nutella fruit pizza.


What you will need:

1 small jar of Nutella 
1 1/2 packages of sugar cookies 
(I was unable to get the tube of sugar cookies, so instead I used the pre-cut)
1 package of starwberries
1 package of blueberries 
1 banana
1 pizza pan


Take your cookie dough and roll it out and place it on your pizza pan.
I cooked mine for about 20 minutes, enough to have just a little of golden brown to it.
Let your cookie cool, I placed mine in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
While your cookie is cooling you will want to slice your strawberries. Slice them thin.
After your cookie is cool enough add the nutella to the top.
Next add your fruit, I started with this one by making a star with the blueberries first, an outline. Then I added the strawberries. Let this set up in the fridge for about an hour covered. 
With the bananas I actually didn't add them until we got to the party.
I didn't want the bananas to brown before getting there.
Simple and Delicious! 
Cut like you would cut any other pizza.

Now lets move onto the Fruit Dip pizza.


What you will need:

1 package of cream cheese (soften)
2 small jars of Marshmallow Fluff
1 1/2 packages of sugar cookies 
(I was unable to get the tube of sugar cookies, so instead I used the pre-cut)
1 package of starwberries
1 pacakage of blueberries
1 banana


Take your cookie dough and roll it out and place it on your pizza pan.
I cooked mine for about 20 minutes, enough to have just a little of golden brown to it.
Let your cookie cool, I placed mine in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
While your cookie is cooling you will want to slice your strawberries. Slice them thin.
Take the cream cheese and the marshmallow fluff and mix those together with an electric mixer, until well blended. Spread the mixture on top of your cookie. 
Start by adding your blueberries, I started by doing the blue part of the flag and then added them around the edge of the cookie. Then I added the strawberries. Again, with the banana I added those after we got to the party. This one also chilled in the fridge for an hour. 
Cut like a pizza and enjoy!






Enjoy your day!

Thanks for stopping by today :)
