Fruit Pizza

Kid friendly
Notes

Recipe Notes

  • Use any combination of fruit for topping the pizza, such as apples, raisins, pears or peaches.
  • No cream cheese? Try peanut butter or sunflower seed butter.
  • Sprinkle with nuts or seeds for added crunch.
  • Make your own whipped cream cheese for easy spreading. Use an electric hand mixer to gradually beat 4 tablespoons of milk into 8 ounces of cream cheese. To make it fruit flavored, add any chopped, soft fruit (fresh, canned, or frozen) while beating. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator.

An obvious hit with the kids!  Using untoasted whole grain sandwich thins, rather than toasted English muffins, as the base worked really well in a classroom setting.

We have used vanilla yogurt in place of cream cheese.  Kids really like it and it is easy to spread. 

I served this recipe to a classroom and they loved it. Very colorful too.

This is such a fun recipe that can use so many different ingredients I might have on hand!  And the kids can get through this one on their own!  The results are always so pretty I am always taking pics and sharing their creations with others!
