If you have a little girl in your home; you are probably fully aware that the new The Pirate Fairy with exclusive Pixie Hollow Bake Off DVD will be available for purchase at Walmart on April 1, 2014. I mean; what little girl isn’t anxiously awaiting the arrival of the newest Tinkerbell movie? I know my miss Jade is anxiously awaiting it! If you haven’t heard about the newest move yet; check out this fun The Pirate Fairy video clip to get an inside peek!
To top it all off; our kids are getting out for Spring Break this week. So what better way to celebrate Spring Break and share in their excitement of the new The Pirate Fairy DVD releasing than with a Pixie Hollow theme treat?
By now you should know that I love to bake. I love treats. I love goodies. And if you look up Pixie Hollow Party on Pinterest; you will be bombarded with amazing party ideas and treats and goodies to make! But there comes a time when you need to cut down on the sugar and reach for something a little healthier. Today’s Pixie Hollow Fruit pizza is one of those times.
We have been surrounded by a lot of sugar. And we will be doing plenty of baking over Spring break and with Easter right around the corner; we need to do something a little healthier. So why not a fruit pizza? But with a healthy twist. It is still sweet and something the kids can enjoy as a dessert. But a lot less sugar than a baked treat.
Pixie Hollow Fruit Pizza
My initial idea was to create our Pixie Hollow fruit pizza on a low sugar shortbread cookie crust. But the other day I was filling a chocolate coconut cream pie for Pi Day and the husband was like “Hey; how about using a pie crust in that fruit pizza you were talking about? It has a lot less sugar than cookies.”
My thought? “You are a brilliant man!” I knew I kept him around for more than his good looks! lol.
So over the weekend we went shopping at Walmart to gather our supplies. The majority all comes from the fresh produce section. I love how much we can save by shopping produce at Walmart. Usually the prices are a lot more competitive than our small grocery stores. Plus we can get all our shopping done at once.
Jade just loved being surrounded by all her favorite fruit!
Now like I mentioned; I wanted to take the idea of a fruit pizza and alter it to be a bit healthier with less sugar. We traded out the typical cookie crust for a pie crust base (no sugar). Instead of the traditional frosting/cream cheese type “sauce” we traded that in for vanilla yogurt (minimal sugar). Top it off with a lot of fresh cut fruit (natural sugar). And then very lightly sprinkle with our homemade edible pixie dust (minimal natural sugar).
Sugar In The Raw makes the best edible pixie dust crystals as the larger sugar crystals sparkle more. And it offers an amazing authentic flavor too. And really all you do is very lightly sprinkle it on for looks at the very end. And it prfects the blending of the flavors to counter any tartness some of the fruit might have. Plus you can’t have a Pixie Hollow treat without blue Pixie Dust to #ProtectPixieHollow!
Not only did our Pixie Hollow fruit pizza look super cute; it also tasted amazing. Honestly everyone in the house agreed they liked this healthy twist a lot better than the high sugar content fruit pizza’s we get at the restaurant or from a store. It was quite refreshing and the perfect level of sweet with the fresh fruit and yogurt. And the combination of yogurt with pie crust was amazing. Everyone said that was one of the favorite parts was the pie crust instead of a cookie. So 10 extra brownie points for the husband thinking of that one.
To decorate the Pixie Hollow Fruit pizza; you want to gather all kinds of your favorite fruits. We wanted to have blueberries; but they were out of stock so I grabbed some black berries instead. I was trying to aim for all kinds of different colors since Pixie Hollow is full of vibrant colors for the seasons.
After the crust is baked, I let it cool. Then spread it with a layer of vanilla yogurt. I then added in a river with a blue gogurt tube. It took less than 1/2 tube. But I had the river that divides the summer fairies from the winter fairies.
To make the winter fairy realm I used sliced bananas, and a sliced kiwi for their pixie dust tree.
In the Summer realm; I used grapes, black berries, flower sliced strawberries and more kiwi to represent all the trees and plants and flowers.
Then we had to add in the Pirate ship! Which is a sliced orange with a Pirate flag printable from PagingSupermom.com. Seriously the coolest little Flag printable I found online! So definitely stop over and print yourself one off.
To slice the Kiwi; I used a diagonal method to slice kiwi into fun star patterns. And then I found a great Strawberry Rose Tutorial for slicing the strawberries. Which was fun, but in the end I used the same method of cutting for a few of the strawberries as I used for the kiwi. Both turned out well and fun for the fruit pizza.
You can easily alter the fruit toppings to match the favorites of your own family. Now if the pineapple and peaches had been ripe I would have added those as well. But right now just isn’t the right season for them. But next time for sure!

I really lucked out on this fruit pizza too. Like I mentioned; my daughter is crazy in love with Tinkerbell and Fairies. Last year for her birthday she had a Tinkerbell and Periwinkle birthday cake. And we still had the cake topper! So that helped to make a great feature too! Especially since our Walmart didn’t have any Pirate Fairy toys available to buy. I was really hoping I could find the mini The Pirate Fairy figurines for a fruit pizza topping. I was rather sad. So Jade’s cake topper made a great backup.
Finally after you get all the fruit placed; then you lightly dust with the Edible Pixie dust!
Now you can enjoy a delicious fruit pizza with a much lower sugar option! And it really lets the flavor of the fruit speak for itself. Not to mention my favorite part. It was easy to put together and looks quite festive. Honestly it looks more elaborate than it really is to put together. So don’t let looks deceive you! You can definitely do this!
And your little fairy lover will love you for it! Don’t have a little girl? That is OK. My boys (ages 8 and 10) also thought this was the coolest fruit pizza they had ever seen. And they really loved it too.
