Gluten-Free Fruit Pizza Pie


Fruit Pizza Pie

You know it’s good when I have made this twice this week!! This has been one of the most requested recipes I have had recently so I am so excited to finally share it with you all. I have now made this often and I feel like I have perfected it. Plus the good news with this recipe is that it is so easily adjusted to be dairy-free as well.

Ingredients you will need to swap out to make Dairy-free: 

  • Flour
  • Cream Cheese
  • Coconut Cream
  • Butter

That’s it. Simple right?

I have now taken this to multiple family and friends get togethers and this dessert has been a crowd-pleaser everywhere it’s gone. The sugar cookie crust makes the crust surprisingly delicious and playful. I like my crust to be moist and soft but with a little crunch. Not sure if that’s a way to describe a sugar cookie crust but that’s the way it tastes to me.

Cream Cheese or Pudding Crust?
This past fourth of July I took one of each pie to Kevin’s brother’s house and some liked the cream cheese filling better than the pudding and others like the pudding more. I go back and forth as well so you can not go wrong with either. My husband Kevin says he like the pudding filling better.
If you like that cream cheese flavor then you will love it on the pie. If you want that cool sugary taste that you get from pudding then go with that as the filling. Either way, you’re in for a treat.

  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar

  2. Bake the Crust: Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease or line with parchment a 14" pizza pan or round baking stone. Roll the chilled dough out onto pan or stone, leaving some space around the edge. Bake for 12 minutes. Allow it to cool fully. 
  3. Make the Cream Cheese Frosting or Pudding Topping: Using an electric mixer, combine the cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla until smooth and creamy. Spread over the cooled cookie crust and chill again to firm up the frosting
