Fruit Pizza

Fruit Pizza

Fruit pizza is a dessert I made years ago before going gluten free.  It was a favorite dessert for both me and my husband.  Of course, back then it contained gluten and dairy.

When I saw Diane’s theme for this month’s Go Ahead Honey, It’s Gluten Free carnival was It All Ends Here—anything you would serve at the end of a meal, I knew right away that I wanted to recreate this desert to be gluten and dairy free.

If you can eat dairy, I’m also going to list that option.  The original version used cream cheese and it was really was good.  I chose to substitute the cream cheese with coconut milk yogurt.

  6. i followed the recipe to the T but my cookie crust cracked all over during baking :(……not sure what went wrong!

    • I’m sorry it didn’t work well for you! It sounds like it might have been too dry. Try adding more milk to the recipe.

  9. Diane Decker says:

    I have a Fruit Pizza recipe I found about fifteen years or more ago on a kids Halloween website. It was called Freaky Fruit Pizza. It is nowhere to be found now. It had the most incredible glaze. It was not dairy free, but could probably be adapted. I would use gluten free sugar cookie dough too. I hope I can find it. My old computer crashed, taking with it my favorite tried and true recipes.
    If I can locate it, I will share because it was the most delicious thing ever.

    • Diane, I saw your comment where you found and provided the recipe. Although it can no longer be found online does not mean the author hasn’t published it in a book. I simply don’t feel comfortable publishing someone else’s possibly copyrighted content here. Thanks anyway.
