A healthier fruit pizza full of tropical flavors, like coconut, mango, and pineapple! This version is free of gluten, grain, dairy, and refined sugar!
When I was younger, my mom made this amazing dessert for a get together. It was a dessert pizza with a cookie crust, a cream cheese “sauce,” and fruit galore. It was delicious and I was in awe. This was pre-Pinterest and pre-internet (I’m definitely aging myself here 😉) so it wasn’t something I had seen before.
Fast-forward several years later and fruit pizzas are ALL over the internet. They make a beautiful, summery dessert and aren’t too difficult to make either. The problem is, I had a hard time finding a recipe that wasn’t chock-full of sugar and dairy.
So, naturally, I created my own! That’s the problem with food bloggers, we believe we can recreate anything! 😜 Now, if only I could do that with clothes…
I’m from Hawaii, so I’m infamous for wanting to put tropical twists on things. However, I currently live in Oklahoma, so unfortunately I don’t have easy access to a whole lotta tropical fruits. I used what I could find though and supplemented the rest with seasonal fruits.
I was able to take out the grain and dairy using one of my favorite ingredients: coconut! I used coconut flour for the crust and coconut cream for the “sauce.” I like coconut cream because it’s pretty much all cream and very little water (I only needed one can.) You can also use regular coconut milk, but there’s usually only a little cream and lots of water, so you may need a couple of cans to get enough cream for the topping.
Arrange the fruit however you want. I opted for more of an organic & scattered (a.k.a. lazy) look over the typical neat & orderly placement. I also topped the my pizza with edible flowers I bought from a nearby organic nursery, which sells pesticide-free plants. Just make sure your flowers are free of chemicals and safe for consumption before placing them on your food.
This dessert is pretty easy to make, gorgeous, and healthier too! If you give it a try, snap a pic and tag me and #wifemamafoodie on Instagram so I can see your creation! Enjoy!
