Paleo Red, White & Blue Fruit Pizza, A treat for a 4th of July Picnic

What a week we’ve had! We went to Nashville and then Angel’s dad came to visit. We had such a good time hanging out and cooking. They worked so hard, we even have our very first garden now! I am so excited to be growing our own food, I just don’t know how to contain myself! It will be so nice to pick fresh produce and cook farm to table – for real. But I’m keeping this post short, as I know we all have cookouts to prep for ;)

Today’s recipe Paleo Red White & Blue Fruit Pizza is a picnic or cookout classic. The difference? This one HAS NO DAIRY. None. Not even a little butter. Rest easy that this is 100% Paleo…unlike everything else out there. Some notes: watch the crust as it gets to the 7 minute mark – you may have to cover the edges with tin foil, as with most Paleo pie crusts, it can easily burn. Otherwise, I hope you enjoy!

Recipe: Paleo Red, White & Blue Fruit Pizza

Ingredients

  • ½ cup Coconut Flour
  • ½ cup Almond Flour
  • 2 ½ Tbsp Honey
  • 1/8 tsp Coarse Sea Salt
  • ¼ cup Coconut Oil
  • 3 Egg Whites
  • ½ cup Almond Flour
  • 2/3 cup Coconut Cream*
  • ¼ tsp Coarse Sea Salt
  • ½ tsp Coconut Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 8 Strawberries
  • 2 Bananas
  • 1 cup Blueberries
  • ½ cup Water
  • ½ Tbsp Arrowroot Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • Juice of 1 Lemon
  • 2 tsp Ginger (sliced in big enough chunks to remove)

Instructions

  1. For the Crust : Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix the 2.5 tablespoons of honey, 1/8 teaspoon of sea salt, ¼ cup of coconut oil and 3 egg whites. Sift in the coconut flour and ½ cup almond flour. Mix until incorporated. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or grease the heck out of it) and press the dough into the pan. Try to make it thin, about ¼” thick. Poke the bottom of the crust several times with a fork. Bake for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  2. For the Filling : *We use the kind in the can – don’t shake it, just open it up and skim off the cream from the top. See our favorite brand here. If you can’t find this kind, don’t worry, it will still taste good. Whip all ingredients until smooth and incorporated. Spread out over the cooled pie crust. Slice the fruit and layer. For ours, we decided to make an American flag for the 4th of July, but you can use any fruits you like in any pattern. Place in the refrigerator to let set.
  3. For the Glaze : Whisk together the arrowroot and water. Then add the remaining ingredients and heat over medium-high heat (about a 6 on my stove), stirring frequently. You want this to get thicker, but not thick. It should take about 2 minutes and when you start to see it looking like the consistency of maple syrup, remove it from the heat and let it cool for a minute or two.
  4. Remove the fruit pizza from the refrigerator and paint the glaze over the fruit. You can drizzle it too, but I like to use a BBQ brush – it keeps it from getting too globby. Make sure not to get any chunks of ginger in there. Then refrigerate until ready to serve.
