Red, White, and Blue Dessert Pizza
Memorial Day weekend and the unofficial kick off to summer is almost here! There will be parades, backyard barbecues, picnics, and pool parties. Food and entertaining this time of year is relaxed and filled with the fresh fare of the season.
A colorful dessert pizza is not only the perfect way to top off a meal this holiday weekend, it is a great opportunity to showcase your patriotic spirit!
