Gluten-Free Berry Fruit Pizza (Paleo & Vegan)
June 17, 2019
This Gluten-Free Berry Fruit Pizza makes for the perfect summertime treat and a stunning addition to a barbecue, picnic or potluck. It can even be made paleo- and vegan-friendly if you wish.
Fourth of July parties, barbecues, picnics or potlucks – you can’t go wrong with this Gluten-Free Berry Fruit Pizza.
With less than 10 ingredients, this recipe is quick to make and is a scrumptious and healthy treat for all to enjoy. A paleo-friendly shortbread crust is topped with a touch of maple syrup-sweetened Greek yogurt (or coconut cream) and an assortment of juicy fresh berries. Did I also mention that this recipe is refined sugar-free? Sure is!
This recipe is a fun one to get the kids involved with, too! You’ll just need to put your Type A personality (if that’s you) aside and let them top the pizza however they please. You could even let them choose some additional toppings such as coconut flakes, chopped nuts or mini chocolate chips.
A treat that’s high in antioxidants and fiber, too.
It’s alway a double-win when you can enjoy a treat and reap some nutritional benefits at the same time. Berries are high in antioxidants, lower in sugar compared to other fruits, and high in fiber. A serving of this Gluten-Free Berry Fruit Pizza provides 3 grams of fiber and just 7 g of sugar (from natural sources). Heck, you could even serve this for breakfast along with a couple of hard-boiled eggs for a good source of protein or for a healthy afternoon snack for the kids!
And if you love this recipe, I highly recommend you give our Grain-Free Berry Crisp a try! It’s another favorite healthy treat of ours.
Change it up with what’s in season.
Enjoy this fruit pizza all year round by simply substituting the berries with what’s in season or what you have on hand. For example, apple slices, pear slices, dried cranberries and cinnamon make for a delicious fall fruit pizza. If you’re looking for something a bit more dessert-like, I love banana slices, chocolate drizzle and peanut butter for a totally scrumptious combo. Get creative and have fun with this recipe!
This recipe can be made dairy-free, vegan-friendly and/or paleo-friendly.
