Getting creative with summer entertaining and grilling can be easy with these simple party food ideas. Pizza and a vegetable tray are the perfect combination.

After baking pizza on the grill, I’m totally hooked on pizza vs burgers or hot dogs for a barbecue! So you’ll notice some yummy pizza on my patriotic party table. It’s the best for grilling because of the delicious thin crust.

How Do You Make An American Flag Vegetable Tray?

Making this vegetable tray is as easy as 1,2,3! I have to admit that dipping the delicious crispy pizza into the dill dip is very tasty!

I found these cute red, white and blue containers at Michaels and they were perfect for serving the grilled pizza.

Can you guess what I made the stars from? They are radishes cut with a small star fondant cutter! You could use cucumbers, but they won’t be as white. A star cookie cutter would be great too.

How Did You Make the Dill Dip Blue?

I added blue food coloring to my dill dip. I think using a blue sandwich container also helped it look bright colored. You’ll want to gradually add a few drops of food coloring until you get the desired blue you like. Get a blue container like mine on Amazon here.

I hope you enjoy this vegetable tray platter idea! If you grill some pizza or make this veggie tray for the 4th of July, share a photo with me on social media. I’d love to see how it turned out!
