Healthy Fruit Pizza

Makes a medium pizza, which is 2-4 adult servings, depending on the type of adults living in your house

Prep time: 5-10 minutes

Cook time: 6-8 minutes

Cool time: 30 minutes

Cost: $2.00

(flour: .05, whole wheat flour: .10, sugar: .10, butter: .20, egg: .10, lemon: .20, Greek yogurt: 1.00, fruit: .25)


Crust (double this for a large pizza):


1/2 C all-purpose flour

1/2 C whole wheat flour (I used white whole wheat)

1/4 C sugar

1/2 tsp baking powder

5 Tbsp butter

1 egg

zest from 1/2 of a small lemon (optional; my son said he didn't like the lemony flavor, but I'm ga-ga for it)

1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract


In food processor, combine flours, sugar, baking powder, and butter. Pulse until crumb-like. 


In small bowl, whisk egg, zest, and vanilla. Pour this into crumb and pulse until it comes together into a lump of slightly crumbly dough.


Press this onto a pizza pan. (We made a medium. If you double this, you'll have a respectable large.) 


Bake for 6-8 minutes. Don't wait for it to brown or it'll be crumbly and unpleasant.


Let cool to room temp and add toppings.


Topping:


6 oz. Greek yogurt (I used full fat)

1/4-1/2 C sugar (We used more and I thought it could have gone a little less sweet. If your family is used to less sweet things, you could totally get away with only 1/4-6 Tbsp sugar.)

Sliced fruit of your choice (we used blueberries, strawberries, and grapes)


Whisk together yogurt and sugar. 


Spread onto cooled crust. Cut and then add fruit toppings. You'll notice I said to cut the pizza first. That's because...Tip: Cut this before adding your fruit. I read this tip somewhere after the fact and realized it was pure brilliance. Trust me, slicing a strawberry or other firm fruit when atop a soft filling can make for a messy slice. 


Eat and enjoy. I had a slice of this with a bit of a leftover omlette. But even without the egg, it's a very complete and balanced meal if complete and balanced is your thing.
