Around our house we are all about eating the rainbow. It makes healthy eating so much fum for my kids, and me too I admit. Seeing color just makes me happy.

Today my girls and I made a fun rainbow fruit pizza!

This was such a fun and delicious treat for them. I love having them get involved in the kitchen and making memories together.

Rainbow Fruit Pizza

A healthy, fun and delicious fruit pizza! The crust is made from whole wheat flour and sweetened with pure maple syrup, the sauce is delicious sugar-free apple butter and the toppings are a rainbow of different colored fruit!

Ingredients

Crust –

  • 2 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup sunflower oil
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Sauce –

  • 1 cup Eden Organic Apple Butter

Toppings –

  • RED – Sliced Strawberries (about 10)
  • ORANGE – Diced Peaches (1/2 cup)
  • YELLOW – Pineapple Tidbits (1/3 cup)
  • GREEN – Chopped Kiwi (1 kiwi)
  • BLUE – Blueberries (about 1/4 cup)
  • PURPLE– Red Grapes, cut in half (about 5)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Prepare the crust by combining the flour, baking soda, and sea salt in a medium mixing bowl. Add the maple syrup, oil, milk and vanilla and mix to form a ball of dough. Spread the dough out onto a non-stick 12 inch round pizza pan and poke with a knife to make tiny holes.

Place the crust into the oven to bake for 10-12 minutes, until lightly golden. Allow the crust to cool before spreading with the ‘sauce.’

Spread the apple butter evenly over the cooled crust.

Top with the different colored fruit in the order of the rainbow. Begin with the strawberries, then peaches, pineapples, kiwis, blueberries and finally grapes, starting at the outside of the pizza crust and working toward the center.

Slice and eat! 🙂

A healthy and delicious sweet treat anytime! 🙂

    I have to say this look better than most pizza delivery companies attempts to offer vegetation options on their menu, they do not take it seriously just offering peppers, mushrooms and sweetcorn and calling it a vegetarian pizza I wish they would spend as much time on a vegetarian pizza as they do adding meat toppings
