Day Of The Dead Sugar Skull Fruit Pizza
A few months ago the kids and I headed to the movies not realizing we were about to fall in love with one of the best movies we have seen in awhile! I laughed… I cried… smiled… COCO.was.incredible! I knew within seconds from the movie ending that we were going to buy it as soon as it was out on blu-ray!
- 2 large eggs
- 2⁄3 cup vegetable oil
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 3⁄4 cup white sugar
- 2 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
- Beat together eggs, oil, vanilla and sugar; add flour, baking powder and salt and mix well.
- Lightly grease a pizza pan and press the dough into the pan to form a thin and even cookie dough crust
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned
- Remove from the oven and let it cool for 5 minutes
- While the cookie is still warm and soft cut out the shape of a skull
- Let the cookie cool completely
- 1 cup low fat cream cheese
- 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
- ¾ cup powdered sugar
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- In a medium bowl bring the cream cheese, yogurt, powdered sugar and vanilla together and whisk until smooth
- Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to thicken
This is such a simple and fun way to celebrate the release of COCO! Also a great way to encourage the kids to eat fruit. I added different pieces of fruit around the edges of the plate because they really enjoyed placing their own toppings on the pizza.
This recipe was also really easy to make, I can think of so many other ways to use this recipe towards other themes throughout the summer!
