Patriotic Flag Fruit Pizza
What You Need To Get:
One seamless sheet of Pillsbury Crescent Dough
Eight ounces of Coconut Greek Yogurt
Three cups of fresh blueberries
Three medium bananas
One lb of fresh strawberries
Powdered sugar (if desired)
How To Make It:
First you will need to preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Take a baking sheet that you have greased and lay out the Crescent Seamless Dough Sheet so it makes a rectangle. (make sure to push down your corners so they don’t flare up.) Next, bake for fifteen to twenty minutes until it is lightly golden. Remove from the oven and let it cool to room temperature. If you would like, dust lightly with powdered sugar. Then you will spread your yogurt on the top so that the whole pizza is covered, with the exception of a ½-inch border around the edges. Make a nice little border of blueberries all around the outside, then fill in the upper-right corner with blueberries to make your blue rectangle for the American flag. Get a cutting board and slice up your strawberries into halves and your bananas into thin coins, try and make them look about the same size. Lastly, place the strawberries and bananas onto the pizza flag to make the red and white stripes. Serve it immediately or you can refrigerate it for up to a few hours. Enjoy!
