Residence Hall Recipes: Fruit Pizza

This week’s recipe is inspired by my own spring break plans–or lack thereof. Even though I’m not going anywhere warm next week I will pretend that I’m sitting on the beach while enjoying this fruity dessert.

Ingredients

9-inch refrigerated pie crust

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/3 cup reduced sugar strawberry spread

1-1/2 cups assorted cut-up fruit (fresh or dried)

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees

2. Cover baking sheet with cooking spray or a little bit of butter

3. Arrange pie crust on baking sheet, folding the outside edge over itself about 1/2 inch.

4. Bake 10 minutes or until golden brown

5. Let crust cool for 5-8 minutes, then evenly spread the peanut butter and strawberry spread on crust and top with fresh fruit.

6. Slice pizza into triangles or squares and serve.

**You can use canned fruit for this recipe, but fresh fruit usually tastes so much better!
