Instructions

Pizza Cookie Crust

  1. First, cream together coconut oil and brown sugar in a medium sized mixing bowl. 
  2. Add non-dairy milk, vanilla and almond extracts, salt, and baking powder and mix. Last, add all purpose flour and mix just until all dry spots are incorporated.
  3. Moisten your fingers with water and press cookie dough into a pan-sprayed 9 x 11 glass baking dish or a 12 inch circular pizza shape.
  4. If you have time, chill your cookie dough for about 10 minutes in the refrigerator to make it less sticky to work with.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes, then let the crust cool completely before adding toppings.

Vegan Cream Cheese Filling

  1. Soften the vegan cream cheese at room temperature for an hour or so (or 15-20 seconds in the microwave) then combine with maple syrup and vanilla extract. Keep mixing with a fork until completely smooth.  
  2. Spread your cream cheese frosting on cooled cookie crust and top with your favorite sliced seasonal fruit!

Fruit Topping Prep

  1. Slice fresh fruit and arrange according to preference.

Lemony Drizzle

  1. In a small bowl mix 1 tablespoon of fresh squeezed lemon juice and 4 tablespoons of powdered sugar.  Drizzle over the fruit for that extra special touch and bright sweet taste.

Notes

When picking the perfect fruit for your pizza, you have plenty of delicious options to choose from! Some of our favorite fruits include fresh berries, grapes, nectarines, pineapples, kiwis, mangoes, and mandarin oranges. 

If you are making this pizza for a special event, let the creativity flow! Try bright designs for birthdays or holiday-colored fruit for Christmas and Halloween. The possibilities are endless!
