Summer is my favorite because I love summer food, and warm weather.
The 4th of July is also my favorite holiday, and barbecues with the fam? There’s nothing better.
This Patriotic Fruit Pizza will definitely be at all our summer barbecues. It is so fast and easy to make, you can literally whip it up in minutes.
The thing that makes this fruit pizza the BEST is the crust. It’s not your usual sugar cookie crust, that you usually find on fruit pizza, it is so much better.
It takes minutes to throw together, and has a soft yet chewy texture to it. You are going to want to try this recipe.
HOW TO MAKE PATRIOTIC FRUIT PIZZA
Step 1: Make the crust.
- We prefer Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed milk. It has always been our favorite, and it has an easy pull back lid that requires no can opener.

The thing I love about this recipe, is the crust. Usually fruit pizzas have a sugar cookie crust.
I am never one to complain about a sugar cookie, but I feel like it is such a bland bottom. It’s so floury, and takes away from the fruity flavor.
So I love that this recipe is a graham cracker crust.
Combine the crushed graham crackers, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla until well combined.
Step 2: Spread the dough into the pan
I’d start by spraying the pan with non-stick cooking spray. This will allow the slices to come off easier, as well as create a thicker base, that won’t crumble.
Spread the mixture out on a pizza pan (you can also use a 9 x 13 baking dish).
Step 3: Make the sauce.
This is more of a fluffy filling than a sauce, but delicious and made with Greek yogurt, so I feel healthy eating it.
In a separate bowl, combine cream cheese, Greek yogurt, and powdered sugar until fully mixed and smooth.
I used a hand mixer to combine these ingredients, but you could also do it by hand.
I also recommend that the cream cheese is at room temperature so it smooths easier and you won’t have bumps in your “sauce.”
Step 4: Spread the sauce and decorate.
Spread this mixture over the graham cracker crust, leaving a little graham cracker crust showing.
Decorate your pizza with the strawberries and blueberries, and sprinkle powdered sugar over to finish.
can I make this recipe using other fruits?
I love this recipe, because any fruit will go with it. I chose red and blue fruits because I was going for a patriotic theme, but you could easily make this recipe with any fruit you desire.
