How’s your week going? Can I just tell you how much I LOVEE this fall weather!? It’s seriously perfect right now. It’s 60’s in the morning, 80’s during the day, and back down to 60’s at night.  Wish I could just spend all of my waking hours outside!

But, alas, I need to spend some time in the kitchen so I can make food to fuel the running, like this gluten free fruit pizza with CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER GLAZE. Yes, you read that right. Sorry for yelling, but it’s so good! Anyway, I’m excited to share this with you because it’s basically like a form of peanut butter pizza. It’s great for kids and very flexible – you can use whatever fruit you like best for the toppings. I like to go by whatever is in season to make this.

This gluten free fruit pizza is very low in sugar, high in fiber and high in protein! It’s not easy making a gluten free pizza crust. Especially a sweet one. This took a few tries but I think I got it down to the right combination of chewy and crispy. Thanks to the oats and almond flour for that.

Why You Should Make This Gluten Free Fruit Pizza

  • It’s great for Kids
  • Packed with protein (Almond flour boasts 14 grams of protein in 1/4 cup, so this crust isn’t like the other crusts you’re used to)
  • High in Fiber
  • High in Antioxidants
  • Perfect for Sharing
  • Great any time of year
  • Customizable toppings!

 

Really, you can choose ANYTHING for toppings. Fresh fruit, dried fruit, nuts, seeds. I chose fruit because it sounded juicy and refreshing. I was going for a patriotic look, with the strawberries and blueberries, and I added kiwis just because. This would be a great 4th of July option! In the fall, you could use apples and squash. In the spring, berries and rhubarb. So many options!

If you really love pizza of all sorts, you need to try this form of peanut butter pizza. There’s something about a mix of flavors over dough that is just so comforting and satisfying. So, I thought why not make it sweeter, rather than the usual savory? I love both, but this dessert fruit pizza is rather refreshing.

What You Need for Gluten Free Fruit Pizza

  • oats
  • almond flour
  • maple syrup
  • egg
  • fruit (or toppings of choice)
  • baking soda
  • vanilla extract

 

Chocolate Peanut Butter Glaze Topping

  • chocolate peanut butter powder (I love this one). Or, mix cocoa powder into your regular powder.
  • greek yogurt

 

Logistically, you’ll also need a pizza pan. I used a 14 inch pizza pan, and I couldn’t fill it all with the dough. I filled it about 7/8 full. Therefore, this fruit pizza recipe would probably be perfect for a 12 inch pizza pan if you have one!

My other tip of advice would be, try not to make the crust too thin. If it’s too thin, it will break easily. While thin crust can be great as an oatmeal and granola topping, to enjoy the pizza you want it kinda thick to slather things on. You’ll just mix the dough and then shape it to your pan.

Also, let’s talk about this chocolate peanut butter glaze. I don’t know if I’ve written about my obsession with PB2 before, specifically Chocolate PB2. I order it in bulk probably twice a month, to add to oatmeal and yogurt. I think it’s important to say that I don’t use it as a replacement for peanut butter because it’s a completely different consistency. But I think it can add chocolate peanut butter flavor pretty well.

So, this chocolate peanut butter yogurt glaze is the perfect “cheese” to your pizza.

Ingredients
  • For the oatmeal crust:
  • 1 1/2 cups oats
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • For the chocolate peanut butter glaze:
  • ½ cup plain greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup PB2
  • Toppings (customize as you choose):
  • ½ cup blueberries
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 small kiwi
Instructions
  1. Mix oats, almond flour, maple syrup, egg, butter, baking soda, sea salt and vanilla extract in a medium bowl. I recommend a hand mixer to mix well.
  2. One mixed, shape the dough into a ball with your hands. You will need to cup it tightly so it holds, and then spread on pizza pan (12 inch pan works best)
  3. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes, or until crust hardens.
  4. Let crust cool for 20 minutes. While crust is cooling, mix your chocolate peanut butter glaze.

  5. Top the crust with glaze and optional fruit toppings.

Share a slice with friends, save it for an after school snack, a snack after dinner or even a post workout snack. If you make the recipe, don’t forget to tag #bucketlisttummy on social media so I see it!

  1. I think I’ve made a mistake. My crust is super crumbly and won’t hold together. Maybe I was supposed to use cooked oats instead of dry?

  2. Oh, I’m a sucker for fruit pizza but have neve been able to fully enjoy it because most crusts are not gluten-free. I am so excited to try this recipe. It looks amazing. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe!

  3. My brother and I were just talking about making a dessert pizza the other day. He tried it with a regular base before and said it was kinda gross cause it was savoury. This looks awesome though!

  4. This is soooo cool!!! Making the “cheese” out of chocolate PB2 is the best idea ever… That crust also looks so delicious! This would be such an amazing summer time snack.

  5. oooo this looks so much better than the boring apple i have everyday at lunch hahaha. and i like hearing good things about PB2! I’ve been thinking about buying it for a while, but never really know what to do with it haha.

  6. Mmmmmm I’m thinking I would just make the yogurt glaze and use it as a dip for all my fruit – I wouldn’t even make it to the crust!
    Hm. Blue foods. You are right. I can think of purple… but no blue….
