You’ll need a good sugar cookie recipe for this pizza. I used a half-batch of this Top 8 Free Sugar Cookie Recipe, which I’ve used before and we all love. Feel free to use wheat flour, butter, or eggs if appropriate for your family–it works great both with and without the “real thing.”

You don’t have to wait for the dough to chill when you’re baking the cookie into a rectangle or circle–and it’s easier to press into shape when it’s warmer anyway. Press the dough to fill the space, and then use a rolling pin, if necessary, to make the surface more uniform.

I also lined the pan with parchment paper before spreading the dough, to make the slices easier to remove.

Combine your cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Try this with Daiya cream cheese alternative, or another alternative, to make this dessert safe for someone with a dairy allergy.

Spread topping over your cooled cookie crust.

Prepare your fruit–you’ll want it in small slices or pieces. In this case since I was making a flag, I just used about a pound and a half of halved strawberries and maybe 8 ounces of blueberries–but I tend to add kiwi and bananas when making this at other times. Use whatever fruits are your favorite! If using any fruit that browns, toss the cut slices with lemon juice.

Arrange your fruit on top of the cream cheese “sauce.”
