Fruit Pizza (Grain Free, Paleo)

I love to make a fruit pizza at the peak of berry season. The sweet crust cradles a creamy-vanilla topping and gets sprinkled with beautiful berries. I’ve never met anyone who could resist a slice. With July 4th right around the corner, choosing blue and red berries adds a festive ending to a holiday meal.

If you’d like to make the dairy-free version of this recipe, you’ll need to whip some coconut cream. To do this, you simply put two cans of coconut milk in the refrigerator overnight and place your mixing bowl in the freezer. The next day, open the cans – don’t turn the cans over or shake them. The coconut cream will have risen to the top, so carefully ladle out the bright white creamy top with a spoon (I got about 1/2 cup coconut cream off of the top of each can of coconut milk). Pour the coconut cream into the frozen bowl and begin whipping. In about 1-2 minutes, you’ll have whipped coconut cream! One thing to keep in mind – it’s imperative you buy the correct brand of coconut milk because some coconut milks don’t separate. My favorite coconut milk brand to use for whipped coconut cream is Native Forest. When I tested this recipe with whipped coconut cream, I used the remaining coconut milk left at the bottom of the can for the filling. This way there’s no waste.

Serving Size: Serves 10

Fruit Pizza (Grain Free, Paleo)

Ingredients

    For the crust:

  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon unflavored gelatin (I prefer Bernard Jensen)

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter (or coconut oil), melted

  • 1/4 cup raw honey (I prefer a light honey like clover)

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Filling:

  • 1 1/2 cups cashews, soaked overnight, drained

  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons coconut milk

  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons raw honey

  • 1 /4 cup plus 2 tablespoons coconut oil

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy cream or coconut cream, whipped (see instructions above for coconut cream)
  • 3 pints berries

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350ºF and adjust rack to middle position. Whisk almond flour, coconut flour, gelatin, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl. Stir in melted butter, honey and vanilla until a dough forms. Spoon dough onto a 12-inch diameter round baking pan lined with a round piece of parchment paper (a pizza pan works well for this). Evenly press dough into the bottom of the pan so that it covers the diameter of the pan. Bake for 10-12 minutes until just golden brown. Cool completely.

Place soaked cashews, coconut milk, raw honey, coconut oil and vanilla extract in the bowl of a food processor or blender. Blend 3-5 minutes until smooth. Pour into a mixing bowl and fold in whipped cream (or coconut cream). Pour filling over cooled crust and spread filling evenly over the crust using an off-set spatula. Place in the refrigerator and chill for 2 hours. Top with berries and serve.

Silly question… How do you soak cashews? In water?
Just double checking!

Yep! Just soak them in water! :)

Are there any nuts other than cashews that would work for this recipe – would almonds work if prepared the same way?

I don’t know of another nut that would create the same consistency as the cashews. If you can consume dairy, then you can use this filling: http://deliciouslyorganic.net/fruit-pizza-recipe/

This looks so DELICIOUSLY YUMMY!! The kids are seriously going to DROOL all over my computer when I show them this :) And, of course they will do the MAD DASH to the pantry, to see if we have all the ingredients on hand. Thanks for sharing this with us!
Have a great Week!

Looks so good! Unfortunately I can’t tolerate almond flour…think it would work if I substituted almond flour for gluten free flour? Thank you!

Do you think I could make these “mini”, like sugar cookie pizzas? How could I shape the dough?

I wanted to let you know this was a huge hit at our July 4th party. Thank you, I’ll definitely be making it again.

I just made this yesterday for a BBQ and it was amazing. After I went paleo and found out I couldn’t eat eggs, I pretty much gave up on baking. This was great and even some if my family members who eat a SAD diet commented on how good it was. Definately to consume in moderation, but what a great treat. Thank you so much!

Substitutions for cashews? I’m allergic … okay with coconut and almonds but not cashews, peanuts, walnuts, pecans and hazelnuts!

Reply

Deliciously Organic May 23, 2014 at 5:57 am

Macadamia nuts are a good substitute.

This looks amazing! The only thing is, is that I am SUPER allergic to gelatin (anything that has bovine in it-which is in every gelatin powder). Can the gelatin be substituted with agar agar? Thanks!

I haven’t tried it, but it’s worth a shot!

I can’t have honey. Can I substitute it for truvia or stevia?

Reply

Deliciously Organic May 27, 2014 at 7:40 am

I havne’t tested it, but stevia might work. I would add 2 tablespoons of canned coconut milk to help make up for the moisture from the honey.

Kelli A. June 10, 2014 at 3:43 pm

For the filling, melt the coconut oil? Thanks.

How long do you soak the cashews before using?

Reply

Deliciously Organic July 3, 2014 at 1:45 pm

They should soak overnight.

Yummmy :)

I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I love your idea of adding cocoa powder! I’ll have to give that a try! :)
