  • Measure out 1/3 cup of flaxseed meal.
  • Add the flax meal to the bowl.
  • Mix the oats and the flaxseed meal. 
  • Peel the bananas. For an easier time peeling them, pinch the opposite end from the stem and pull, just like a monkey!
  • Using a butter knife, cut the bananas across into circles.

  • Add the bananas to the bowl. 
  • Measure out 3 tablespoons of honey.
  • Add the honey to the bowl. 
  • With either a fork or your hands, mix the bananas, honey, and dry ingredients together until it becomes a consistent dough. 
  • Take the new dough and put it on a baking pan. We used aluminum foil so the crust wouldn't stick to the pan, but we recommend wax paper or parchment paper!
  • With either a rolling pin or your hands, roll the dough into a flat circle. Make sure there aren’t any lumps so it cooks consistently!

  • Add the yogurt to a small bowl. 
  • Measure out 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

  • Cut the top and bottom off of a kiwi.

  • Press the kiwi out of its peel. 
  • Cut the kiwi into half moon shapes with a butter knife. 
  • Peel the orange and remove the the pith, which is the stringy stuff on the orange. 
  • With your hands, pull apart the orange slices. It’s okay if it gets messy! 
  • **Grown Up** Once the timer goes off, pull your pizza crust out of the oven and let it cool for 3 minutes. 
  • Once the crust is cool, spread the yogurt ‘sauce’ onto the crust with a spoon.

  • With the strawberry halves, create an outside circle. 
  • Under the strawberry circle, make a kiwi circle.

**Grown Up Tips**

  • Feel free to alternate the fruit on the pizza if your little chef doesn’t like any of the fruit!
  • Use wax paper or parchment paper under the pizza crust when you bake it so the crust comes off easier. 
  • Use pre-cut pineapple or kiwi to make the recipe easier for you and your little chef. 
  • If you're making the Summer Fruit Pizza for a party, please refrigerate before serving.
