Who said pizza can only be savory? Sure, I enjoy a Vegan BBQ Pizza or a Vegan Thai Pizza Recipe when I am in the mood for something filling for lunch or dinner. But when I am craving for something fruity and fun, I use my frozen pizza crust to make this delectable recipe. It is so refreshing, pretty to look at, and filled with summery goodness!
The Best Vegan and Gluten-Free Fruit Pizza
The summer heat can zap one’s energy, and when this happens to me, I turn to quick and easy recipes that do not require much work. And this vegan fruit pizza does not only fit the bill; it also instantly refreshes and rejuvenates! I used Oggi Foods’ Cauliflower Crust to make it, and it bakes in 5 to 7 minutes only! After that, I simply slap on some nut or seed butter and top it with my favorite summertime fruits! Quick, easy, and so versatile!
The Cauliflower Crust is vegan, nutritious, and allergen-free made with the finest GMO-free ingredients. This award-winning pizza crust is the only one in the industry with rising air pockets! They are hand-stretched and stone-baked, giving them that authentic Neapolitan flavor the Oggi Foods are known for.
Ingredients You’ll Need
Enjoy layers of deliciousness using only a handful of ingredients.
Oggi’s Cauliflower Pizza Crust - Check out a retail grocer near you. Visit their store locator here. Look for this gluten-free crust in the frozen section.
Nut butter - You can use whatever nut butter you have on hand. If you are allergic to nuts, you can seed butter instead.
Fruits and berries - In this recipe, I used banana slices, sliced strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries. Love the combination of creamy sweetness and juicy tartness in every slice! However, you are welcome to use any fruits you like!
Slice the bananas right before you add them so they will still look fresh when you serve the fruit pizza. Or you can brush them with citrus juice to prevent them from browning sooner.
Follow the package instructions when baking the crust in the oven. Do not overbake, or your crust will turn hard.
Make sure the crust is completely cool before adding the nut butter. The butter might melt and seep into the crust if it is hot or warm.
Make sure to drain the veggies well before you arrange them on top to prevent the crust from getting soggy. If you are using fruits that are very juicy, you might want to drain them for a bit before adding them.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use other pizza crust brand?
Yes, you can. I used this one because it is vegan, gluten-free, and made of better-for-you ingredients.
Is this Summer Fruit Pizza healthy?
It is considered healthier than most snacks or desserts because it is made of plant-based crust made with extra virgin olive oil and is naturally sweetened with fruits. It is also allergen-free.
Can I make it ahead of time?
Sure you can. However, the crust may begin to soften, and the fruits will be not as fresh the longer you keep them at room temperature.
How to Store Summer Fruit Pizza?
It is better to serve it right away. And honestly, the slices are grabbed so quickly that they are gone before you know it! If you have to store them, though, wrap them in a plastic wrapper, and store them in the fridge for up to 3 days. You can always bake the crust ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator for a few days. You can then reheat quickly and assemble right before serving.
