Summer Fruit Pizza
Serves 6 slices
Total Time: 35 minutes
Inspired By Layers of Happiness
1 cup of old fashioned oats
1/3 cup of flaxseed meal
3 tablespoons of honey
2 cups of plain Greek Yogurt
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1/4 cup of Blueberries
1/4 cup Pre-cut Pineapple chunks
Rolling Pin (optional)
Parchment paper or wax paper or silicone baking mat
**Grown Up** Pre-Heat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Wash Strawberries, Blueberries, Raspberries
Measure out 1 cup of dry old-fashioned oats.
Add the oats to a medium sized bowl.
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!
**Grown Up** Place the pizza dough in the oven.
Set a timer for 20 minutes.
Measure out 2 cups of plain Greek Yogurt.
Add the yogurt to a small bowl.
Measure out 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
Pour the vanilla extract into the bowl.
Mix the yogurt and vanilla extract evenly.
Pull the leaves off of the strawberries.
With a butter knife, cut the strawberries in half.
Cut the top and bottom off of a kiwi.
With a butter knife or spoon, cut along the inside of the peel.
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.
Add the pineapple circle.
Add the orange spices circle.
In the center of the fruit pizza add raspberries.
In any free spaces add blueberries.
**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.
