Pizza Remix!

Chocolate pizza is the answer to a gluten-free, dairy-free PIZZA-DEPRIVED life. 😉 I imagine a LOT of you reading this are just like me– can’t eat conventional foods like wheat and cheese that are staples of a typical American diet. I feel your pain. And so I’m giving you something even BETTER.

It’s is a complete remix of conventional pizza. Instead of a sad attempt at recreating “real” pizza using cauliflower, soy cheese and who knows what else, I’m switching it up to SWEET, not savory. (And don’t worry– NO CAULIFLOWER lol.)

A crisp chocolate crust with chocolate pizza sauce, whipped cream as “mozzarella” and strawberry “pepperoni.” Move over savory pizza– It’s all about DESSERT pizza now! And it’s brimming with chocolate!

ps I endured some crazy chocolate FAILS to bring you this recipe (yikes lol!). But I’m so glad I figured it out because it turned out SO good!

DOUBLE Chocolate Cookie Crust

What’s better than a giant cookie crust? When it’s made using healthy ingredients! Using almond flour and coconut oil makes this crust crisp and buttery while keeping it free from gluten and dairy. Stevia makes it sweet without the CARBS.

But this recipe is for SERIOUS chocolate lovers. Is that you? It’s DEFINITELY ME =D Not only is it filled with amazing chocolate flavor from the cacao powder, it’s also loaded with chocolate CHUNKS. Double the chocolate!

I use Viva Naturals cacao powderr, which has an amazing rich chocolaty flavor. You can add it to smoothies, pancakes, bark, fudge, cheesecakes, and especially this PIE CRUST.

Not only is it delicious, it’s also rich in magnesium, antioxidants and vitamins. I LOVE getting a boost of health benefits with my desserts!! Don’t you?!

Your Pizza Sauce: More CHOCOLATE

Another layer of CHOCOLATE to spread alllll over that yummy chocolate cookie crust. Love it!

This chocolate sauce is literally SO simple, so easy, SO DELISH. Here’s what ‘cha do:

  1. Grab your favorite chocolate (your choice! Use Lily’s brand for sugar-free)
  2. Melt it
  3. Add a little oil (to make it SAUCY)
  4. Spread it on!

It’s super GLOSSY and pretty, too! You can add a little extra oil if you want your sauce to stay drippy and wet (since it will solidify when refrigerated)

{Chocolate TIP: Never ever EVER add water, milk or any liquid *except OIL* to melted chocolate. It will seize/harden turn to an almost in-edible LUMP. Not good! Trust me— DON’T do it, lol.}

Your Pizza TOPPINGS

How do you like your pizza? For me, on non-dessert types of pizza, my choice is a homemade gf thin crust with pesto piled with TONS of green bell peppers, red onions, tomato and fresh basil! YUM. Before my dairy-free days, I would add mozzarella slices, too.

But for the first 26 years of my life I was a thick crust, CHEESE-ONLY-don’t-you-dare-put-veggies-on-there type of person lol. I basically LIVED on gluten and dairy. And now I have NONE, ha! (It’s amazing how dealing with food sensitivities will ROCK your diet! You know what I mean??)

While I do miss regular pizza sometimes, I’m so glad there is life beyond pizza. Now I can make a delicious CHOCOLATE pizza without any gluten or grains or dairy or SUGAR! (I’m still SHOCKED about the sugar part!!)

This pizza is topped with chocolate sauce, whipped cream dollops (which reminds me of fresh mozzarella cheese slices) and speckled with strawberry halves (as the pepperoni 🙂 But you can CUSTOMIZE your toppings however you like. (see below)

Low-Carb Chocolate Pizza (Vegan, Paleo,) PrettyPies.comTHE DRIZZ

If you want to elevate your pizza to the next level of deliciousness, then layer on THE DRIZZ.

Whip out some X-tra drippy nut butter — ANY kind will do! My choice is PB (cuz pb is life) but you could totally do cashew butter, almond butter, HAZELNUT butter or literally ANYTHING you want!

More chocolate?? SURE! Chopped nuts, blueberries, coconut flakes, strawberry sauce, CARAMEL?? Omg, yes!! The possibilities are ENDLESS.

Pile it on, folks. You won’t regret it. 😉

Ingredients

Chocolate Cookie Pizza Crust

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/3 cup cacao powder
  • 1/4 tsp pink salt
  • 6 Tbs coconut oil melted
  • 5 Tbs milk of choice
  • 2 Tbs ground flaxseed
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 50 drops liquid stevia or pinch of pure stevia powder, *see notes for sub
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chunks

Chocolate Sauce

  • heaping 3/4 cup chocolate chunks melted, 4.4 oz
  • 1-2 Tbs avocado oil or extra light olive oil

Pizza Toppings

  • 1 13.6 oz coconut milk
  • 12 drops stevia
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup strawberry halves or other berries
  • nut butter for drizzle optional

Instructions

Chocolate Cookie Crust:

  • Preheat oven to 375. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, cacao and salt.
  • In a small bowl, stir together flax and milk and let sit for 2 minutes to thicken. Whisk together remaining wet ingredients and pour over the flour mixture. Stir well. Taste and adjust for sweetness. Fold in chocolate chunks.
  • Press/roll dough onto pan, spreading it into a 10" diameter circle, about 1/4" thick. Smooth any jagged edges with your fingers.
  • Bake for 10 -12 min until set. Allow to cool.

Chocolate Sauce:

  • Chop chocolate and place in a glass bowl. Gently melt in the microwave (about 60 seconds on med-high OR use a double boiler). Stir in oil and whisk smooth.
  • Pour sauce over the crust and spread out, leaving a 1/2" border for the crust.

Whipped Coconut Cream:

  • {Use a can of Thai Kitchen coconut milk that has been refrigerated overnight} Carefully scoop out the solid cream into a mixing bowl (save the leftover water for a smoothie!).
  • Add stevia and vanilla and whip with a hand mixer for about 30 seconds until fluffy and smooth.
  • Add dollops of whipped cream all over the pizza. Garnish with strawberries. Slice and add a generous drizzle of peanut butter (or any kind of nut/seed butter). Enjoy!

Disclosure: Pretty Pies is a member of the Amazon Associates program and purchases made through affiliate links may result in a small commission earned at no additional cost to you.
What I used:
Sweet Leaf Stevia
Pink Salt
Sweetener Swap: Instead of stevia, you can replace 3 Tbs milk in the crust with maple syrup (or sugar-free syrup) and proceed with the recipe. If it needs extra sweetness, add a little dry sweetener, such as coconut sugar. Use regular dark chocolate instead of Lily's if you're not low-carb.
Sauce Tip: Add extra oil to make the sauce stay drippy, since it firms up when refrigerated. Do *not* use coconut oil in the chocolate sauce unless you want it to harden extra hard.
To store: keep refrigerated for up to 1 week. Crust may be frozen separately without the toppings, tightly wrapped for 1 month.

    do you think I could use dates as a sweetener??? I think I will skip the choc chunks and try this as a cookie drizzled with almond butter. thanks for the recipe!!

    Sounds delicious! Do you know how many carbs in the crust? How many in the sauce? How many in the cream?

    Thanks!

        Forgive my ignorance, but where can you paste a URL in MFP and get nutrition information?? You definitely can’t do it by adding a meal and doing a search for it. I just tried it. Recipe looks awesome, but definitely need to verify carbs. If it’s even 20, that could knock you out of ketosis if you’ve already had a dozen or so carbs that day.

    What is the carb intake? I can’t see stats anywhere for this recipe. It looks AMAZING but I am unsure if it is high in carbohydrates?
