Crostata di Frutta

Fresh Fruit Tart

Crostata di Frutta

Crostata di frutta is an open face fruit pie made with handmade pastry crust overlayed with a yellow cream and seasonal fruits.  Although the Venetians say it was introduced in the Veneto region sometime around 1000, the Neapolitans say, the Bourbons first made crostata predating the classic Neapolitan pastiera.  In any case, Italian crostata is delicious any way you slice it!
