There's no pot of gold, but there is plenty of fresh fruit! This colorful Rainbow Fruit Pizza is perfect for a summertime party.
Rainbow Fruit Pizza reminds me of the times I spent as a little girl begging my dad to chase the rainbows we spotted through the car window. I was convinced we’d find a leprechaun at the end of one, catch him, then earn our three wishes for his release.
Don’t ask me how we were going to catch this leprechaun — trap him under the spare tire? Lure him in with sweet country music played over the radio? Logistics were unimportant to my seven-year-old self. All I knew was that if we could snag him, all my wildest dreams would come true. Every stuffed animal I ever hoped for would materialize in my bedroom, and I would be allowed as much ice cream as I wanted, whenever I wanted, forever and ever amen. No wishing for more wishes though. Only fools don’t realize this tactic never ends well.
I can’t remember my dad’s exact explanation for why my country music strategy wouldn’t work out, but we’d head home and he would make us a round of vanilla milkshakes to ease the disappointment. At least one of my wishes had partially come true.
It’s a silly memory, but it makes me smile to remember a time when life was both more black and white and more colorful. Rainbow Fruit Pizza is in honor of the inner kid in all of us who’s ready to chase leprechauns for the sake of a lifetime supply of stuffed animals.
Gather up the crust, the colors, and the fixings for a creamy sauce – let’s make a rainbow!
We start by unrolling a single sheet of seamless Pillsbury Crescent Roll Dough. Ta-dah! Crust.
Next, we channel our inner seven-year-olds and doodle a rainbow by cutting away the corners and an arch at the center. We pop our artwork into the oven and bake until it becomes a flakey, golden background for the Rainbow Fruit Pizza to be.
While the crescent roll crust bakes, let’s prep the fruit of many colors. For my rainbow, I chose strawberries, mandarin oranges, kiwi, blueberries, and blackberries, but feel free to swap whatever rainbow-colored fruits you like. Mother nature is creative, and we have many options!
Once the crust is cool, it’s time to spread our “sauce” of Yoplait Vanilla Greek 100 Yogurt and cream cheese. It’s a thick, creamy, tasty vanilla cloud that’s perfect with our rainbow of fruit.
Now let’s color! Arrange the fruit in rainbow order, beginning with the red at the outside, and then working inward towards the center. It’s kind of like art class, except way more fun because we're going to eat it in the end.
Voila! Rainbow Fruit Pizza: granting our wish for a fresh, simple, summery dessert.
It’s a snap to make, party perfect, and sure to please your inner kid. When it comes to easy entertaining, Rainbow Fruit Pizza is a pot of gold!
