16 slices

This festive pizza requires only four ready-to-use ingredients, so it can be assembled in no time. Kids will get a charge out of adding the cheese stars and stripes to the red "flag." —Flo Burtnett, Gage, Oklahoma

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 2 slices process American cheese
  • 4 string cheese, cut in half lenthwise
  • 1 jar (15 ounces) pizza sauce

Directions

  1. Unroll pizza dough and press onto the bottom and 1/2 in. up the sides of a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake at 425° for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
  2. Using a 1-in. star cookie cutter, cut eight stars from the American cheese. Cut each strip of string cheese in half lengthwise. Spread pizza sauce over crust.
  3. Arrange stars in the upper left corner. For stripes, arrange 15 pieces of string cheese over sauce (save remaining piece for another use). Bake 5-8 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
