Rainbow Fruit Pizza

Rainbow Fruit Pizza reminds me of when I was a little girl and begged my dad to chase the rainbows we spotted out of the car window. I wasn’t after the pot of gold so much as the leprechaun and the three wishes he’d grant me if I caught him—at least according to Disney’s Darby O’Gill and the Little People, a completely reasonable source of legitimate information.

I’m not sure exactly what I would have wished for—the complete set of Ty Beanie Babies? An unlimited supply of Easy Bake Oven brownie mix? World peace?

Greek Yogurt Rainbow Fruit Pizza // Well-Plated

As I learned, driving to the end of a rainbow isn’t as simple as it looks. Fortunately for us, Rainbow Fruit Pizza is as easy as it gets. The flaky “crust” is a ready-to-bake Pillsbury crescent roll dough (ahem, irresistible), and the creamy dreamy “sauce” is vanilla Greek yogurt. Top these two with a colorful banner of fresh fruit, and you have a playful summer dessert that looks beautiful, tastes wonderful, and is a snap to make!

Rainbow Fruit Pizza

Rainbow Fruit Pizza is an easy dessert pizza made with crescent roll dough crust, Greek yogurt sauce, and a bright fresh fruit in the shape of a rainbow.

Yield: Serves 8

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 sheet seamless crescent roll dough
  • 8 ounces vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 6 large fresh strawberries
  • 4 ounces canned mandarin oranges
  • 2 kiwis
  • 1/3 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/3 cup fresh blackberries

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. On a lightly greased baking sheet, gently roll out the crescent sheet to make a rectangle, lightly pressing the dough to shape as needed. Trim away the edges of the dough to form a rainbow, and gently press down the corners so that they do not flare up during baking. Bake for 8-12 minutes, until lightly golden and crispy. Remove and let cool to room temperature.
  3. While the pizza bakes, prepare the fruit. Cut tops off of strawberries and slice thinly; rinse mandarin oranges and pat dry; peel and slice kiwis into coins, then slice coins in half cross-wise to form half moons. Simply wash and pat dry the blueberries and blackberries. Set fruit aside.
  4. Spread the yogurt over the top of the cooled crust, leaving a1/2-inch border around all sides. Arrange the strawberries along the outermost edge, “point” down to form the first rainbow stripe. Follow with a “stripe” of oranges, then kiwis, then blueberries, ending with the blackberries as the lower-most stripe. Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to a few hours. Slice and serve.

  21. I tried it and the crescent roll dough ruined the desert. 

  22. i can’t find the seamless crescent rolls. AT all of our grocery stores have seams. Will you tell me the brand you used. Thank you. Judy Lovic

    • Hi Judy, I got mine at our local grocery store. If you can’t find the single sheet, you can unroll and line up regular crescent roll dough, then pinch the triangles together at the seams to form a single sheet. I hope you enjoy the recipe!
