Original recipe

Fruit Pizza
From Pinum314

Yield: 1 pizza

For the crust:

  • 120 g (1 cup) rice flour
  • 30 g (1/4 cup) modified tapioca starch
  • 34 g (1/4 cup) corn starch
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the sauce:

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Dash of salt

For the topping:

  • Miscellaneous sliced fruit (peaches, kiwis, strawberries…)
  • About 1/4 cup apricot jelly
  • 1-2 tablespoons water

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Whisk together rice flour, modified tapioca starch, corn starch, xanthan gum, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.
  3. Beat the butter and brown sugar together with an electric mixer in a separate bowl.
  4. Add the egg and vanilla to the butter and brown sugar and mix.
  5. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
  6. Press the dough onto a parchment-paper-lined cookie sheet until it is about 1/4 inch thick.
  7. Bake 10-12 minutes until edges are brown and fully cooked.
  8. Let cool completely.
  9. In the meantime, make the sauce: Beat together cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and salt until well blended.
  10. Spread sauce over top of the cooled crust.
  11. Refrigerate until shortly before serving.
  12. Add toppings (wait until the day you intend to serve to prevent the fruit from making everything soggy). Slice the fruit into pieces about 1/4 inch thick and arrange on top of sauce.
  13. Mix together apricot jelly and water to a brush-able consistency. Remove any chunks from the jelly.
  14. Brush the diluted jelly over the top of the pizza.
  15. Refrigerate for best results.
