One of my favorite summer treats that looks incredibly elegant, yet is insanely easy is making a Paleo fruit pizza!

Trust me, though, no one will know that this fruit pizza is in fact vegan, gluten free, dairy free, and grain free. The crust is so good that it could convincingly pass for a regular ol’ sugar cookie, yet no one would know that this is healthy!

They say feasting begins with the eyes and ends with the belly, and this healthy fruit pizza surely hits all the requirements! We’ll start with a soft yet sturdy Paleo (and nut free!) cookie crust, top with an easy dairy free frosting (you’ll love it, it’s so insanely easy), and then add fresh fruit to wow everyone!

Believe me, you’ll be making this Paleo vegan fruit pizza all summer long!

Cassava Flour: my all time favorite Paleo flour to bake with! It’s completely nut free and is the closest flour to regular ol’ wheat flour (which is why I love it- it makes substituting flours insanely easy at a one to one ratio!). To learn more about cassava flour (because I’m sure some of you are thinking, what the heck is cassava?! Don’t worry, I was there too!), check out this lovely article here. It will give you the lowdown!

Vegan Butter or Coconut Oil: for this part, you can use either vegan butter or coconut oil! I find that there is more of a sugar cookie taste to the vegan fruit pizza crust, but if you’re nut free, go with coconut oil 🙂 The result will still be delicious! Just make sure that either are at room temperature, but not melted!

Maple Syrup: it’s backkkk! My all time favorite refined sugar free sweetener 🙂 If you’re a newcomer to the Banana Diaries, you’ll quickly learn that I love maple syrup as a sweetener. Like could practically drink it. If you’re not new here, well, then…you know the drill! 😉

Coconut Milk: only 2 tablespoons in here, and you can certainly use any dairy free milk that you’d like! I just prefer coconut milk when keeping the recipe Paleo and nut free as well 🙂

Coconut Yogurt: yep, this easy Paleo fruit pizza isn’t lying by the name- it is easy peezy lemon squeezey! For the cream, no fuss, just coconut yogurt! I used plain coconut yogurt, but if you’d like more flavor in there, just add a little vanilla extract 🙂 The cookie and the fruit together are so sweet that I figured the yogurt didn’t need anything, and it’s true!

Sliced Fruit: for this, you can use any fruit you’d like! I go over what combinations would be best down below, so be sure to read until the end!

How to make a healthy fruit pizza

What I love about this easy Paleo fruit pizza is that it’s extraordinarily easy to make. I’m talking the crust takes max 5 minutes in the bowl, and only 15-18 minutes to bake.

First, start by preheating the oven to 375F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. This will help to make it easier for you to transfer your cookie crust over to a serving dish so that you can decorate later!

Next, whisk together the cassava flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt. Make sure your vegan butter or coconut oil is at room temperature (for the coconut oil, it should be soft, but not liquid), and slice it into cubes.

Add your vegan butter or coconut oil to the flour and cut the butter into the flour using a fork. It should resemble a crumbly dough at this point! Then just add in the maple syrup, coconut milk, and vanilla extract, then fold the ingredients into the dough like you would making regular cookies!

Roll the dough into a ball using your hands and then press it into the baking sheet. Flatten it out to resemble a pizza crust and spread the dough outwards to be about 8″ in diameter (no bigger than this, as you want a nice thick and sturdy crust!). Smooth out the edges a little so that your cookie crust is pretty 😉

Then place your Paleo fruit pizza crust into the fridge to set for about 5 minutes. What I love about cassava flour is that it doesn’t take long to chill, which saves you a lot of time!

Remove the crust from the fridge and place it into the oven to bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown.

Allow your crust to cool for 15 minutes before adding the coconut yogurt. If you’d like to add an additional teaspoon of vanilla extract to your yogurt for flavor purposes, now is the time!

Spread your yogurt on evenly, leaving a little room for the “crust” of your dairy free vegan fruit pizza. Top with sliced fruit and voilà! You have a beautiful and elegant (yet insanely easy to make) Paleo fruit pizza!

What fruits to use on your pizza?

Personally, I love using any and all fruits! On this healthy fruit pizza that I created, I used figs, blueberries, kiwis, and strawberries. However, some nice combos would be strawberries and bananas, mango and pineapple, all berries together, chocolate covered oranges with mango slices (why the heck not?! We need more chocolate in our lives!)…the list goes on!

It would even be delicious to do watermelon on top 🙂 Really, the choice is all yours!

Now, for this pizza, I did not include a drizzle of maple syrup or a glaze on top because I felt that the cookie was sweet enough, as well as with the fruit. However, if you like sweet sweet desserts (I’m talking REAL sweet here), add a drizzle of maple syrup on top! Or even sprinkle a little bit of coconut sugar or real sugar if that’s your vibe 😉

What I love about this easy Paleo fruit pizza is that you can really make it your own! The crust is just the canvas, and the fruits are your paints!

I hope you love this Paleo vegan fruit pizza as much as I do! I just adore how easy it is to make, and it can be quite the impressive barbecue or summer get together dessert that really doesn’t take all that much effort 😉
