Organic Fruit Pizza

I love making this healthy fruit pizza as farmers markets are opening for the season.  It's a healthy dessert and so yummy!   My recipe begins with an organic whole grain sweet crust, then topped with a creamy filling.  Add your own fruit design on top with an array of berries, kiwi, bananas, pineapple, oranges, grapes or whatever suits your fancy.

Fruit Pizza is fun to make for the entire family, and especially for the kids because they can help to make the fruit design and they will love eating it!


    For the crust:

2 cups  rice flour or almond flour
2 T  coconut flour
1/2 tsp  unflavored gelatin
1/2 tsp  baking soda
1/2 tsp  sea salt
6 T  unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup  raw honey
2 tsp  vanilla extract

      For the filling:

1/4 cup  coconut milk
1/4 cup  raw honey
1/4 cup  coconut oil 
1 T  vanilla extract
1 cup heavy cream (whipped)
Berries & Fruits


Preheat oven to 350 degrees and adjust rack to middle position.  Butter a 12-inch round baking pan or pizza pan.  Whisk together the rice flour, coconut flour, gelatin, baking soda and sea salt in a large bowl.  Stir in melted butter, honey and vanilla until a dough forms.  Form dough with your hands and spoon onto the pan.  Evenly press dough into the pan to cover the 12-inch diameter. Bake for 10-12 minutes until just golden brown.  Cool.

Place coconut milk, raw honey, coconut oil and vanilla extract in a blender or food processor. Blend  3-5 minutes until smooth.  Fold in whipped cream.  Pour filling over cooled crust and spread evenly.  Chill for 2 hours.

Top with berries and fruit & serve.
