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.
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?
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 looks (this Strawberry Cream Cheese Pie is another easy treat).
The flaky “crust” is a ready-to-bake Pillsbury crescent roll dough, 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 (like this Blueberry Buckle) that looks beautiful, tastes wonderful, and is a snap to make!
How to Make Rainbow Fruit Pizza
This refreshing rainbow fruit pizza is the perfect summertime dessert (as is are these old-fashioned Lemon Bars) for those last-minute backyard gatherings with neighbors or sun-kissed Saturday afternoons with the kids.
- Crescent Roll Dough. I’m not sure how I lived this long without realizing Pilsbury made a single sheet of SEAMLESS crescent roll dough but I’m so glad I made this discovery.
- Greek Yogurt. The sauce for this fruit pizza is nothing more than a healthy spread of vanilla Greek yogurt. (Greek yogurt is also the hero for my favorite Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip).
- Fruit. Strawberries, sliced kiwi, blueberries, blackberries, and mandarin oranges are my go-to fruits for this simple rainbow pizza. Feel free to use whatever your family loves and is in season. (Leftover fruit? Make a Fruit Salad!)
- Roll out the dough and shape it into a rainbow arch.
- Bake until lightly golden and crisp. Remove and let cool.
- Meanwhile, cut and prepare your fruit, as desired.
- When ready to assemble, spread the yogurt over the top of the crust, then decorate the pizza with the fruit in a rainbow stripe pattern.
- Cut into slices. ENJOY!
Beanie Babies or a flakey, creamy, and bright summer-fruity treat? I know for which one I’m wishing!
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. If you cannot find seamless crescent roll dough at your local store, you can still use good old-fashioned crescent roll dough with the seams. Just make sure to tightly pinch them closed with your finger before baking to make the piece of dough you’re working with as seamless as possible.
Unfortunately, I’m not aware of a gluten free crescent roll dough that exists to recommend. However, if you have a recipe for a gluten free crust or cookie that you enjoy you could experiment with that as a swap. If you discover a gluten free fruit pizza crust option, I’d love to hear about it.
Yes. You can bake and assemble the fruit pizza a few hours ahead of serving. Once assembled, cover with plastic and chill until ready to serve.
Rainbow Fruit Pizza
- 1 sheet seamless crescent roll dough
- 8 ounces vanilla Greek yogurt
- 6 large fresh strawberries sliced
- 4 ounces canned mandarin oranges
- 2 kiwis peeled and sliced
- 1/3 cup fresh blueberries
- 1/3 cup fresh blackberries
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- 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.
- 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 crosswise to form half-moons. Simply wash and pat dry the blueberries and blackberries. Set fruit aside.
- Spread the yogurt over the top of the cooled crust, leaving a 1/2-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.
- TO STORE: Rainbow fruit pizza may be stored for several hours in the fridge, covered with plastic, before serving. Once served, the fruit pizza should be consumed within a few hours for best taste.
