Fourth of July Cookie Pizza

A Patriotic Treat, Topped with Berries


Not only are berries, such as strawberries and blueberries, in season during the Fourth of July, but they also come in patriotic colors, making them great toppers for this special Independence Day dessert, courtesy of the California Strawberry Comission. This red, white and blue treat will go fast at your summer July Fourth celebration, or any other party you are planning this season.



  • 1 package (18 ounces) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
