American Flag Fruit Pizza
Summer holiday and cookout foods are not exactly known for being healthy.
However, we’re changing it up this year with a potluck dessert recipe that’s both festive and better-for-you than the usual fare!
This American Flag Fruit Pizza is perfect for your patriotic tablescape, and it’s pretty darn tasty too! Even better, it’s gluten free, dairy free, and each slice provides a serving of antioxidant-rich berries.
You’re going to love how easy this is to make! Only 4 ingredients if you use a pre-made dough! (But still super simple even if you make your own gluten free pizza dough!)
Flag Fruit Pizza Ingredients
- Gluten free pizza dough (you can use Ciro “The Pizza Boss” box mix or use our gluten free pizza dough recipe)
- 1 cup whipped topping*
- 1 cup strawberries, quartered
- 1/2 cup blueberries
(Serves about 6)

Start by preparing the pizza dough. You can use a boxed option like Ciro “The Pizza Boss” dough mix or make your own with our easy gluten free pizza dough recipe.
Coat a flat baking sheet generously with olive oil. Cover your hands with oil as well, so dough won’t stick to them. Spread dough into a rectangle shape on pan until it is between 1/4 – 1/2″ thickness.
Bake according to directions on box (about 20 minutes) or if using our recipe, about 35-40 minutes.
Once pizza crust is done baking, allow to cool completely.
Apply a generous layer of whipped topping to entire pizza. Next, place blueberries in a square in top left of pizza. Arrange strawberries to form the red stripes of the American flag — we cut each strawberry into quarters so they would fit together better.
Serve and enjoy!
*Note: We used Cool Whip for our pizza, as it is lactose-free and a good substitute for those who are lactose-intolerant. However, some products marketed as dairy-free do contain casein, a milk derivative which might be not be ideal for those with dairy allergies.
