Paleo Fruit Pizza with “Cream Cheese” Frosting

This paleo fruit pizza has a sugar cookie crust with a cashew “cream cheese” icing and all your favorite seasonal fruit on top!  It’s gluten-free, grain free, paleo, and the perfect dessert for summer gatherings.

One of my favorite pre-paleo desserts to make for summer was a fruit pizza.  Refrigerator cookie dough, store bought cream cheese frosting, and all my favorite summer fruit.

“Cream cheese” frosting:
  • 1 1/2 cups cashews soaked 2 hours
  • 1/3 cup coconut cream - this is the thick part of a chilled can of full fat coconut milk
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp fine grain sea salt
  • 6 Tbsp ghee room temperature
  • 6 Tbsp pure maple sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Sliced fruit of choice to top
  1. Make the frosting first. Place all ingredients in a food processor or high powered blender and blend until smooth, or relatively smooth. Chill until ready to top the crust.
  1. Use an electric hand whisk to cream together the ghee and maple sugar until smooth. Add in the vanilla and egg and continue to beat until smooth. Stir in the almond flour, tapioca, baking soda, and salt until a dough forms. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes. At this time, preheat your oven to 350° F.
  2. Line a 12” round pizza pan with parchment paper. Press chilled cookie dough evenly over the parchment to form a round crust.
  3. Bake the crust for 10-12 minutes or until set and beginning to turn light brown. Remove and cool completely on wire racks. While the crust cools, slice your fruit to top.
  4. Once crust is room temperature, spread the chilled frosting all over starting in the middle and working your way out, leaving a 1” border on the outside. Top frosting with sliced fruit and either serve right away, or refrigerate util read to serve. Enjoy!
