Your kids will enjoy getting involved in the food preparation for the Fourth of July when you put them in charge of dessert -- an easy-to-prepare "pizza" in red, white and blue.
Here's how to make a "dot-to-dot" fruit dessert pizza:
An adult should open one package of refrigerator sugar-cookie dough. Show your child how to press the dough into a round pizza-crust shape, on an ungreased pizza pan. An adult should bake the dough according to package instructions or until the edge of the dough is firm. Cool completely.
In a mixing bowl, stir together one 8-ounce package of low-calorie cream cheese (softened), 1 tablespoon milk and 1 teaspoon shredded orange or lemon peel.
