Fruit Pizzas are always a great treat to serve at family get togethers or ther social gatherings. This recipe is going to use my delicious sugar free sugar cookie recipe as the crust along with a sugar free cream cheese frosting and healthy fruits. Unless you tell them, your family and friends will never realize they are eating a sugar free sweet treat.
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup Swerve, granulated (erythitol sweetner)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp almond flavoring
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Blend butter, Swerve, vanilla extract and almond flavoring together in a standing mixer. (A hand mixer or wooden spoon is good if you do not have a standing mixer.
- Beat mixture with a mixer on medium for 3 minutes, or until very well blended.
- Beat in eggs.
- Combine dry ingredients in another bowl and gradually add to butter and Swerve mixture and continue to mix at a reduced speed.
- Place dough in the refridgerator for 1 hour to let chill and to firm up for rolling.
- Once chilled and firmed, place dough on a pizza pan and roll out to an inch away from the edge as the crust will expand. Place in a preheated oven at 350F and bake for 8 to 10 minutes until crust is beginning to brown a little at the edge. Remove from oven and let cool completely before adding frosting and fruit
Note: because of the almond flour, this cookie needs to be thoroughly as it will be fragile until cooled
- 3 Kiwi’s
- 1 pint strawberries
- 1/2 cup fresh blue berries
- 10 mandarin orange slices
Note: You can use about any combination of fruits you may desire. Use your imagination and get creative!
Cream Cheese Frosting
- 8 oz cream cheese, softened
- 3 tbsp butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cup Swerve Confectioners
- 1 single serve Pink Lemonade Crystal Light beverage mix (optional)
- In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese and butter until very soft.
- Then beat in the Swerve Confectioners until your desired level of sweetness is reached.
- Frost the cooled cookie with a flat edge knife.
- Then decorate with fruit.
