Each round should be about 6 inches in diameter. Spoon 1/4 cup of the fruit into the center of each round, leaving a 1 1/2-inch border all around the edge. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup sugar evenly over the fruit on each crostata. Fold the dought edges toward the center, making 3 sparate flaps. With your thumb and forefinger, firmly pinch together the seams between the folds.
