4th of July Fruit Pizza is perfect for your 4th of July. This cookie pizza is made with a sweet sugar cookie bottom, homemade cream cheese frosting and topped with strawberries and blueberries.
The Cookie Dough
I use refrigerated cookie dough that I buy at the store. I have found that Pillsbury is my favorite brand, but use what you prefer.
If you are using a smaller pizza pan you will not need to use as much cookie dough.
You can also make a homemade sugar cookie dough. I have a recipe for a Candy Corn Cookie Pizza that has a homemade recipe that is perfect for a 14” to 16” pizza pan.
You can also use my Best Sugar Cookie Recipe and half the recipe, or make the full recipe and freeze the extra cookie dough for later. This recipe is super soft since its made with sour cream!
The Pizza Pan
I make mine on a 16” pizza pan.
NOTE: If using a smaller pizza pan you will need to adjust the ingredients.
Spray the pizza pan with cooking spray before pressing out the cookie dough on the pan.
Homemade Cream Cheese Frosting
The frosting for this 4th of July Cookie Pizza is simple to make.
You use 4 ingredients to make the best frosting ever! Cream cheese, butter, vanilla and powdered sugar!
You can find the recipe here. I make the recipe as is and it covers the cookie pizza pretty good. If you like a lot of frosting you can make 1 1/2 of the recipe or even double it.
The Fruit for 4th of July Cookie Pizza
You will want the fruit on top to be red and blue (the white is the frosting). The easiest choice for fruit is fresh blueberries and strawberries. You could also add some fresh raspberries.
NOTE: DO NOT USE FROZEN FRUIT!!! Frozen fruit will be too mushy and runny. It will ruin the top of the cookie.
I keep my blueberries whole and slice my strawberries in half or in slices (depending on the size of the strawberry.) If I use raspberries I would put them on whole.
NOTE: Watermelon could be used for the red, but I do not recommend it because it is a really wet and juicy fruit.
Making the 4th of July Sugar Cookie Pizza
Press the cookie dough on to the greased pizza pan.
Try and spread it evenly and out almost to the edge of the pan. The cookie dough will spread a bit when cooking, so don’t press it out the exact edge. Leave a little bit of room around the edge.
Bake the sugar cookie pizza. Check the center of the pizza and make sure it is fully cooked. It will get a bit puffy and golden on top and around the edges when its done.
Let the cookie pizza cool completely before frosting.
Frost the cookie pizza with the cream cheese frosting.
Then top with the fruit.
Cut the cookie pizza into as many slices as you want. You can get good 8 sized slices or cut them a bit smaller for more servings.
You will love this recipe and I hope it becomes part of your 4th of July festivities for years to come!

4th of July Fruit Pizza
- 14” to 16’” pizza pan
- 16 inch pizza pan *see notes for smaller pan size
- 2 (16 oz.) rolls of refrigerated sugar cookie dough
- 8 oz Strawberries *or more as desired -any red fruit works – raspberries are delicious too- do not use frozen fruit
- 8 oz Blueberries *or more as desired
- 16 oz Cream Cheese Frosting – see below for link for my recipe *use more or less to your liking
- Preheat oven to 375° and grease your pizza pan.
- Press sugar cookie dough evenly on to the pizza pan. Make sure to leave a little bit of an edge around the pan (don't press the dough to the edge). Leave about 1/2 inch space because the dough will spread as it bakes.
- Bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes, until the middle is set, the edges are golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean when poked in the center. Let the cookie cool completely before frosting.
- While the cookie cools, make your frosting and slice or cut your strawberries to your liking. See link below for Cream Cheese Frosting recipe.
- Once the cookie has cooled, frost the cookie and then place the fruit in any design desired. (I like the look of the fruit scattered but you can do a simple pattern to make it look "prettier").*You can make this cookie pizza the day before and it will be great – just do not add the fruit until you are ready to serve.
- Let the pizza chill in the fridge for at least an hour after frosted and topped with fruit (I like it chilled for longer). Cut and serve!This will give you 8 slices that are pretty good size bit you can cut them smaller to feed more!
- Keep any leftovers in the fridge. It will be good for about 3 days!
