Recipe: Fruit Pizza

My family really enjoyed this recipe. It was a fun treat to give them - they were so excited about it. It's an enjoyable recipe too because there can be so many variations to it - all sorts of fruits can be used and different spreads / puddings can be tried as well.

I received this recipe from a friend of mine - but I did make some alterations to it (less sugar, used different "frosting", and used sprouted wheat) .

Thanks for having shared it Brandi!

Here's the recipe:

Fruit Pizza

Sugar Cookie Crust
(makes enough for 8 large slices)

1/2 to 3/4 cup coconut oil / butter
1/2 cup sucanat
2 eggs (hormone and cage free)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond extract
3 cups sprouted wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt

(Pre-heat oven to 350°)
1. Cream together: coconut oil/butter, sucanat, eggs, vanilla and almond extract.
2. Add flour and salt.
3. Roll out onto floured surface and place on ungreased cookie sheet.
4. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Allow to cool before frosting.

Flax Seed Pudding

2 cups raw milk
6 Tbsps golden flax seeds
4 Tbsps honey / sucanat

1. Grind the flax seeds for 2 seconds.
2. Bring 2 cups of milk to a boil.
3. Add flax seeds to the milk.
4. Boil the flax seed milk mixture for 30 seconds.
5. Transfer to a different bowl and allow to cool (about one hour).
After pudding has cooled:
6. Place the pudding mixture into mixer. Add the sweetener. Mix on low for 3 minutes.
7. Spread on cooled cookie crust.

Add your fruit toppings, slice and serve!

Does your milk mixture need thickening? Place it in a pot, add 3 Tbsps cornstarch or arrowroot and boil until thickened. Allow to cool before using.

Or you can use a Sucanat butter cream frosting ...

Sucanat Butter Cream Frosting

1 cup powdered Sucanat (place in blender)
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-3 tsp. water (if needed)

1. Cream together sucanat, butter and vanilla.
2. Add water for desired consistency.
3. Spread on top of cooled cookie crust.

Add your fruit toppings, slice and serve!

*Refrigerate any leftovers.


  1. I love it! Beautiful and even healthier than mine. I haven't delved into making things with flax seeds yet, so I'm glad to have your experience to help me out. :)

    Thanks for sharing!
