Fruit Pizza – a delicious fruit pizza recipe that is made with a gluten free-friendly crust, the most delicious frosting and gorgeous design!



Sugar Cookie Crust

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened (dairy-free butter works too)
  • 1/2 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 1/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill 1-1 gluten free flour (or regular all-purpose flour)
  • 1/4 teaspoon xanthum gum
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 8oz plain cream cheese (dairy-free works too)
  • 1/4 cup butter, room temp (dairy-free butter works too)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup powered powdered sugar


  • 810 strawberries, sliced
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 23 mandarin oranges, peeled
  • 12 cups pineapple chunks
  • 23 kiwi, halved and sliced
  • 1/4 cup blackberries, halved


Cookie Dough Crust:

  1. Add softened butter and sugar to medium bowl and beat with hand mixer until creamy.
  2. In a small bowl combine egg and unsweetened almond milk; whisk.
  3. Add beaten egg mixture to butter mixture and beat until combined.
  4. Combine dry ingredients (flour, xanthum gum, salt, baking powder, baking soda and nutmeg) in medium mixing bowl; whisk.
  5. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir to combine.
  6. Use hands to mold into flat disk and then wrap in wax paper for 3 hours or overnight.
  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  8. Lay down piece of wax paper and sprinkle with gluten-free flour. Place your dough on top of that and sprinkle to the top of the dough with more flour (this will help prevent the wax paper from sticking to the dough – you can also spray the wax paper with a little oil). Place another piece of wax paper on top. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough between the two pieces of wax paper until it makes an 11 inch circle that is approximately 1/8-1/4 inch thick.
  9. Peel off top layer of wax paper and then carefully flip the dough onto a lightly greased cookie sheet.  Carefully peel off the last layer of wax paper (which should now be on top).
  10. Bake on center rack for 10-12 minutes or until outer edges are just barely turning brown.
  11. Remove from oven and let cool.

Cream Cheese Frosting:

  1. Add cream cheese and butter to medium mixing bowl. Beat with hand mixer until fluffy.
  2. Add vanilla, almond milk and about 1/3 of the powered sugar. Beat until combined.
  3. Continue adding the powdered sugar a little at a time until it is fully combine.


  1. Arrange an outer layer of sliced strawberries, followed by oranges, pineapple, kiwi and then blueberries and blackberries in the center – or create your own design!!!


  • Non-Gluten-Free: If you aren’t concerned with gluten, feel free to use regular flour as a 1-1 substitute, but you can omit the xantham gum.
  • Rolling out dough: You can also roll out your dough on a flat baking sheet so you don’t have to worry about flipping it over (which can be intimidating). Just be sure you are lightly greasing your cookie sheet beforehand!
  • Serving Suggestion: it is highly recommended to assemble the pizza right before serving.  If the crust sits with the frosting on it for too long, it will begin to get soggy. 
  • 4th of July: Feel free to only use red and blue fruit (blueberries and strawberries) to make it a more festive fruit pizza for the 4th of July! 
  • Cookies: feel free to make fruit pizza cookies instead if you want! Just roll the cookie dough out and cut out into small circles and bake for 8 minutes at 350.
