Sometimes being a good neighbor means lending a bit of cinnamon or sugar, and sometimes it means rolling up your sleeves and helping your local farmer/neighbor find a loving home for his surprise strawberry bumper crop. Like your kitchen counter . . . or more specifically your belly.
I’m doing my part, y’all, and as all kind of delicious fruits ripen this season I want you to be able to do yours, too. That’s why I’m sharing this super simple but delightful fruit pizza recipe. The crust is soft and buttery like these paleo sugar cookies – but sturdy enough to pile a lot of fruit on – and the homemade whipped topping is light, fluffy and delicious.
This recipe makes two crusts and enough topping for both because well, you’ll see. ♥
Fruit Pizza Recipe (Gluten-Free, Paleo)
- 2 cups blanched almond flour
- ¼ cup arrowroot flour
- 1 large egg
- ¼ tsp sea salt
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 2 tbsp melted butter (plus more for forming the dough)
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- fresh fruit (berries, kiwi, mango, pineapple, etc.)
- whipped topping (recipe below)
- Preheat the oven to 325°F
- Combine almond flour, arrowroot flour and salt in a medium bowl. Add in the egg, maple syrup, butter and vanilla extract and stir until well-combined.
- Form the dough into a ball and place it in the fridge to chill for 20 minutes.
- Remove the dough from the fridge and place it on parchment paper. Rub a little butter between clean hands and form the dough into two flat crusts.
- Slide the crusts (with the parchment paper still underneath) onto a baking sheet and bake for 14 minutes. Allow to cool before decorating with the whipped topping and fruit.
Decadent Whipped Topping For Fruit Pizza
- 8 oz cream cheese
- 4 oz cream
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- Using an electric mixer, whip the cream and maple syrup together until soft peaks form. Add in the cream cheese and whip again until well-combined. Spread over the fruit pizza and top with fruit.

Is there a sub for arrowroot powder? thanks!
Oh my goodness, this looks SO tasty! My son would go crazy for it – he’s a fruit addict, haha! Do you think I could make the whipped topping out of coconut milk fat, or some other paleo substitute?! Thanks so much for sharing <3
oh yumm, this looks tasty!
We made this today during our NZ school holidays. Topped with Greek yoghurt mixed with freeze dried orange, and decorated with sliced kiwifruit, papaya, blueberries, grapes & cantaloupe. Leftovers are in lunch boxes for a picnic lunch tomorrow. Thanks for the awesome recipe.
I want to make this but want to incorporate coconut butter into the whipped topping. Any ideas?
This was really good!!!! Altho it says it makes two crusts – are they super small? I made one that fit on my pizza stone. It was the fav dessert on the 4th of July!
Yes they are on the small side. So glad you liked the recipe!
How do I get more recipes? Do you have a book? DeeAnna
How come there are no nutritional facts?
Any substitutions for almond flour? Can I use coconut? My son is allergic to tree nuts. This looks so delicious!!
Coconut flour would be very dry but if he can have seeds sunflower seed flour (sunflour) would be the closest in consistency/moisture to almond flour. It can turn green when baked due to a chemical reaction with acids/bases, but it’s totally safe to eat. 🙂
Dairy isn’t Paleo, though.
