No-Bake Fruit Pizza {V/GF/Paleo}

Ahh, summer! I love you. Hanging by the pool. Longer days with a relaxed pace. Family vacations to warm sunny beaches. And lots of BBQs and parties!

If you’re going to a cookout this summer or gathering for the 4th of July, this No-Bake Fruit Pizza a perfect dessert to bring. It looks so festive with the red, white, and blue. Vegan Fruit Pizza | Pretty Pies

Have you tried a fruit pizza? Maybe you’ve had the typical kind made with packaged cookie dough, marshmallow fluff and/or cool whip, and lots of refined sugar. Well, you won’t find ANY of those ingredients here. This healthier fruit pizza is made with a few simple whole food ingredients like almonds, dates, coconut, lemons and a touch of maple syrup or honey. And fruit, of course!

This dessert is raw, gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, grain-free, refined sugar-free, vegan and Paleo. (That’s a mouthful)  But even those who eat a standard American diet will enjoy this! 🙂

The crust is like a big chewy cookie. And it’s filled with a thick frosting made with easy homemade coconut butter and decadent coconut cream! YUM.  Plus, it’s super simple to make. All you need is a food processor to to the work. No need to turn on your oven on a hot summer day.

Summer also means lots of fruits in season! Beautiful fresh decorations for yummy treats. You can use whatever fruit you like on your fruit pizza. And get your creative juices flowing to make your own design! It’s so fun!  Peaches, raspberries, blackberries, kiwi, and sliced grapes would all be good choices to use. But I especially like how the lemon complements strawberries and blueberries.

Look at the thick layer of frosting you can really sink your teeth into. Yaaas. But it’s not like the sicky-sweet kind you’d get from frosting in a can. It’s bright,  lemony, and so much healthier! Get in my belly. Vegan Fruit Pizza | Pretty Pies

So fresh and summery! Fruit pizza made from real food makes me happy. 🙂

Instructions
To make the crust:
  1. Pulse all ingredients together in a food processor until sticky crumbles form. Press firmly into the bottom and sides of a parchment-lined 9" cake pan or tart pan. (I place parchment on top and press with a flat measuring cup)
To make the frosting:
  1. Add the shredded coconut to a food processor to make coconut butter by blending for about 15 minutes until liquified (stop to scrape down the sides a couple times, as needed.)
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and blend thoroughly. (Frosting will be thin, but thickens when chilled)
  3. Pour over crust and set in the fridge for 20-30 minutes (uncovered) to lightly set the filling.
  4. Garnish with fruit of choice and return to the fridge for a couple of hours to firm up. When set, grab the parchment to lift pizza out of the pan. Use a pizza cutter to slice. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

I like Thai Kitchen Organic Coconut Milk. Make sure to always buy full fat coconut milk (in a can, never a carton). Save the leftover coconut water! It's very healthy and full of electrolytes. I put mine in smoothies and homemade frapuccinos. 🙂

Store pizza in the fridge, covered tightly-- after the frosting has set. Should last about 5 days, depending on which fruit you choose.

I don't recommend banana, pears or apples as toppings, since they brown quickly.
