Here is a fun pizza you and the kids can make at home. The great thing about this pizza is the fact that you can change out the fruit to the fruit you have on hand or perhaps leave out certain things. If the coconut is not your favorite food just leave it out.  Put whatever toppings you like for instance apples, peaches or whatever you decide it will be the talk of the family every time you make this pizza. Most of all it’s great for taking out on picnics.

Happy Eating!
