Here's a pie-in-the-sky-idea—pizzas you decorate like a high-flyin' flag! You can decorate it with stripes for the U.S. or with a maple leaf for Canada. Both designs consist of tangy fruit and smooth cream cheese over a tender crust. Since each version is simple to make, you can quickly raise either one for a summer picnic or patriotic party.—Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
