Healthy American Flag Fruit Pizza

Healthy Fruit PizzaWho would not want to celebrate July 4th with a Healthy American Flag Fruit Pizza!!  My children will be consuming A LOT of sugary treats at the beach for the 4th of July celebration so we did not need any more around our house, but I wanted to make something festive and fun for us.  I adapted my favorite sugar cookie by using oat flour in place of the all-purpose flour to make it gluten free, cut the sugar and used avocado oil instead of butter for a healthy fat.  Instead of the traditional whip cream and powdered sugar, I lightly sweetened greek yogurt with honey.  My kiddos had lot of fun developing and eating this, I hope yours do as well and enjoy the 4th!

To Make the Crust

  • In a large bowl or electric stand mixer blend together the oil, sugar, eggs and vanilla
  • Blend in the baking powder and salt
  • Slowly add in the flour 1 cup at a time on a low speed or by hand
  • Blend together until the dough begins to pull into a ball and is not too sticky (if it is too sticky add a little more flour 1 tbs at a time)
  • Press mixture into the bottom of the pan
  • Bake the crust for 10 -12 minutes until it is golden brown
  • Let cool completely before putting on the topping

  • Remove the crust from the pan and place on the platter you would like to serve it on
  • Whisk together greek yogurt and honey and evenly spread the filling over the top of the crust

To Make Your Flag!

  • Line the blueberries in the top left corner (I did 7 across and 5 blueberries down)
