Reviews for Patriotic Pizzas
"I know this will be delicious, I mean, come on, strawberries and cream cheese....but I think when I make it I will put it on a rectangle cookie sheet to better represent the flag..."
"This was a HUGE hit! Easy to do, tasted great! I added lemon rind to the base, instead of lemon juice & substituted 2- Pilsbury Sugar Cookie Dough for the crust (will need additional cooking time). Also, substituted the sugar for 3/4 C. powdered sugar, added an extra tsp. vanilla and folded in 8 oz. of cool whip. Yummy!"
"I made this cookie for a summer party. It looked great and everyone came back for seconds!"
