You have to try this Fruit Pizza! It really is one of the biggest recipe hits we have created for our Healthy and Homemade Calendar. It is quick, easy, and uses common ingredients including whole grains (oatmeal). Plus it tastes and looks fabulous.
Since we introduced this recipe it has turned up at birthday parties, coffee breaks, receptions, kids cooking lessons, and picnics. Each time the flavor is a little different depending on the fruit and yogurt chosen. In the winter, there were more mandarin oranges, bananas and apples on the pizzas, now I see peaches, berries, and melon which are plentiful and in season.
Sometimes it is served in wedges; other times the crust is divided into 8 individual cookies so that each person can “decorate” their cookie with the fruit of their choice. Kids can help make the cookie and they love to decorate with their favorite fruits.
Another idea is to use the shape of the cookie or the fruit colors to tie into the theme of a party. Last year I made a football shaped cookie for a Super Bowl Party. Berries could support a patriotic 4th of July fruit pizza.
