Real Food Fruit Pizza (Gluten & Dairy Free Optional)

Real Food Fruit Pizza (Gluten & Dairy Free Optional)

love fruit pizza! My friend D makes fruit pizza almost every year for 4th of July. The original recipe for this delicious dessert is made with packaged sugar cookie dough, cream cheese, sugar and fruit. I wanted to make this dessert with real food ingredients and with gluten and dairy free options. I spent all day in the kitchen testing several cookie dough recipes using einkorn and gluten-free flour blends. I also made the cream topping with cream cheese, homemade whipped cream and dairy free whipped cream (coconut whip cream).

The recipe below was our favorite cookie dough crust! We made it twice, once with gluten and dairy free ingredients and the other with einkorn flour and real whipped cream. Both turned out wonderful!Real Food Fruit Pizza (Gluten & Dairy Free Options)

    Can you use coconut flour & stevia instead?.

      Hi Kelly,
      I can’t say. I don’t use stevia and coconut flour falls apart in recipes like this. You could try making my coconut flour cookies and topping them with the cream and berries. I would still make them all small so they don’t fall apart.
