Fruit Flag Pizza  

As prepared by Gimme Some Oven

Wave your flag!  It’s time to get patriotic…with your food!


It’s no secret that I like to play with my food.

I credit my food “artistry” skills to a childhood of picky eating, when just shuffling broccoli around on my plate got a little boring.  (I mean, hey, why not turn it into a little mini broccoli “tree” next to the mushroom house with a baby carrot roof?)

While my mom was usually less than amused back then, thankfully those skills translated into some really fun dishes as an adult.  Whether it’s cupcakes, or pies, or this rockin’ Flag Fruit Pizza – I still l-o-v-e the chance to play with my food!

And seriously – this treat is super fun and simple.  And of course, a total crowd pleaser!  It’s also a great one to have the kids help decorate, or your inner kid-at-heart can have all of the fun too!  Here’s the details…

First, gather up the ONLY TWO ingredients you need besides fruit.  (I told you this was easy!)

Ingredients for Flag Fruit Pizza

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees, and then lay out the Pillsbury Crescent Seamless Dough Sheet (brilliant, by the way) on a greased baking sheet.  Shape into a nice even rectangle, and press down the corners.  Then bake about 15-20 minutes until it’s lightly golden and oh-so-delicious.

Let the cooked sheet cool for a few minutes until it reaches close to room temperature.  Once it does, feel free to dust with a little powdered sugar if you’d like (optional!).

Then (definitely not optional!) generously lather on some of the Yoplait Coconut Greek Yogurt for your “sauce."  All of my friends kept asking what the sauce was – they loved it!  It's way better than the normal cream cheese fruit pizza sauce, and soooo yummy!

Next, it’s time to break out your red, white and blue!  First, those lovely blueberries.  Take them and make a border around your pizza, and then fill in the top left quadrant (tapping into my old math vocab!), to make the “stars” part of the flag.

Then comes the fun.  To make the red and white stripes, take your strawberries and cut them each into thinly-sliced “coins," and then (if your strawberries are big), cut those coins in half to make…well…”half-coins."  Then take your bananas and peel them, and make more coins or half-coins.

(Really, you’re just wanting to get these to be about the same size.  So depending on the size of your bananas and strawberries, go with what looks best!)

TA-DA!  And then you have a fun, fruity, flag-y dessert ready to go…

…that I guarantee your friends will LOVE!  Seriously, I took mine to a gathering with some friends last week, and every last piece disappeared.

People apparently love their fruit pizzas, and it's all the more fun when you get to be a little patriotic in the process!

Happy 4th of July, friends!

Flag Fruit Pizza

1
Pillsbury Crescent Seamless Dough Sheet
2
cartons (about 8 oz. total) Yoplait Coconut Greek Yogurt
3
cups blueberries
3
bananas
1
pound strawberries
(for
powdered sugar dusting, if desired)

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • 2 On a greased baking sheet, lay out the Crescent Seamless Dough Sheet to make a rectangle. (Gently shape the edges if need be, and push down the corners so that they do not flare up.) Bake for 15-20 minutes until cooked and lightly golden. Remove and let cool to room temperature. Dust lightly with powdered sugar if desired.
  • 3 Spread the yogurt on top of the dough sheet so that the entire pizza is covered, leaving a ½-inch border around the outside. Place the blueberries all around the outside to make a border, and then fill in the upper-right quadrant with a rectangle of blueberries.
  • 4 On a cutting board, slice the strawberries and bananas into thin coins, and halve them if needed so that they are about the same size. Layer the strawberries and bananas onto the pizza to make red and white stripes.
  • 5 Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to a few hours.
