Breakfast Fruit Pizza

Breakfast Fruit Pizza By: Jennifer

Once a month at the office we take turns providing treats for each other. Since we eat the treats around 9 am, I wanted to bring something breakfasty but still good. I decided to create a healthier breakfast fruit pizza as opposed to the dessert fruit pizza I usually make. One thing I realized too late is that you really want to assemble the pizza fresh. I put it together the night before, treating the bananas and pears with a little lemon juice to prevent browning, and put it in the fridge for the night. Of course, the granola got soft! However, it was still really tastey. One of the best parts about this fruit pizza is that you have a lot of flexibility to use all of your favorite fruits and berries or whatever you can get at the store that’s in season. I used a granola recipe that we love to eat with yogurt, fruit or ice cream. For the pizza I halved the dry ingredients but left the wet-helping it to hold together better. I also recommend making it as originally written. I put the original recipe is in parenthesis while the proportions I used for the pizza are given.

A different twist on an old favorite, scrumptious breakfast fruit pizza!
Ingredients
Granola
  • 3 Cups rolled oats
  • ¼ Cup brown sugar
  • ½ Cup coconut
  • 3 Tablespoons sesame seeds
  • ⅛ Cup sunflower seeds
  • ½ Cup Chopped nuts (I like walnuts, almonds or pecans)
  • ¼ Cup ground flax seed
  • Mix all ingredients. Stir in & coat thoroughly with:
  • ½ Cup Oil (walnut, canola, or olive oil work best)
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • ⅓ Cup honey
  • ½ teaspoon salt
Instructions
  1. Spread on a cookie sheet with parchment paper on the bottom for pizza, or just a plain cookie sheet for granola. Bake at 350 for 25-30 min.
Topping
  1. Mix one 8 oz container of Cinnamon Brown Sugar Cream Cheese (room temp) with 1 and a half containers of yoplait light cinnamon roll yogurt. Add a little extra ground cinnamon to taste.

  1. Spread topping on cooled granola crust. Arrange cut fruit of your choice on top. Cut and serve.
Notes
NOTE if you make the granola just for granola, it is very helpful to scrape the granola off the bottom of the pan after it finishes cooking, but before it cools. It will make it easier to get it out.
