Fantastic Low-FODMAP Fruit (Dessert) Pizza; Gluten-free

Printer Friendly Version

This is a FANTASTIC, fresh, and fun, gluten-free, low-FODMAP fruit ‘dessert’ pizza.  It has a soft and delicious low-FODMAP sugar cookie crust and a creamy low-FODMAP cream cheese layer. Then it is topped with amazing low-FODMAP fruits and drizzled with a low-FODMAP fruit glaze.

My mouth is watering already. A perfect dessert for any party or grill out.

This low-FODMAP Fruit Dessert Pizza was adapted from my mother’s famous fruit tart recipe that she served every summer I was growing up. It was one of my favorite childhood desserts.  She prepared her fruit tart with a sweet creamy filling using a blend of sour cream and cream cheese.  That filling set her fruit tart apart from everyone else’s!

While it seems like this low-FODMAP fruit pizza has a lot of ‘steps’, it is actually very simple.  You do have to bake the low-FODMAP sugar cookie crust, but the top layer and glaze are super quick and easy.  Then all you do is assemble, and devour.

For low-FODMAP Fruit Pizza Sugar Cookie Crust:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup butter, softened (8 tablespoons)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water or low-FODMAP milk (such as almond milk or lactose-free milk)
  • 1 & ½ teaspoons vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups low-FODMAP, gluten-free all-purpose flour
    • I used Authentic Foods GF Classical Blend- my low-FODMAP bake off tells you why I love this brand
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum, if not added to your flour choice
  • Vegetable shortening for greasing  (or use my low-FODMAP Magical Bake Pan Release Paste– I did!)

For low-FODMAP Fruit Pizza filling

  • 12 ounces lactose-free cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup lactose-free sour cream
    • You can also use regular sour cream, 2 tbsp is one low-FODMAP serving
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • ½ tsp almond extract

For low-FODMAP Top Layer

  • Try low-FODMAP fruits such as raspberries, blueberries, kiwi, pineapple, grapes or strawberries
    • You don’t want to crowd the fruit too much as you want people to be able to pick up the pizza ‘slices’ easily

For low-FODMAP Fruit glaze:

  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed low-FODMAP, clear fruit juice (such as lemon, lime, pineapple or orange)
    • Do not substitute concentrates
    • I used fresh pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 & 1/4 tsp cornstarch


Prepare low-FODMAP Sugar Cookie Crust:

  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • Grease 12 inch pizza pan with vegetable shortening and dust with your flour (or use my low-FODMAP Magical Bake Pan Release Paste)
  • Cream butter and sugar in large mixing bowl
  • Add the egg, water/milk, vanilla, and salt; blend until mixed well
  • Add flour and xanthan gum, mix at a low speed until well combined
  • Cover and refrigerate for about 20 minutes, then press/roll out immediately (if your pan is bigger than 12 inches, then stay inside a 12 inch circumference to ensure the cookie crust bakes properly)
  • Bake in center of oven for about 15 minutes (it will be only slightly golden)
  • Cool to room temperature (about 30-60 minutes or overnight)

Prepare low-FODMAP Fruit Pizza filling:

  • While crust cools, combine all ingredients with a mixer or by hand until smooth (2-3 minutes)
    • Taste, and add more sugar if desired

Prepare low-FODMAP Fruit Pizza glaze:

  • Place all ingredients in a medium saucepan and simmer over medium heat until thickened, stirring frequently
    • About 5-10 minutes

Decorate the low-FODMAP Fruit Pizza

  • Gently remove cooled low-FODMAP Fruit Pizza Cookie crust from pan and place on a serving tray or plate
    • Can also leave it in the pan if you prefer (less likely to break during transfer)
  • Spread the low-FODMAP Fruit Pizza filling over the crust
  • Arrange your fruit and berries in a circular pattern to your preference
  • Drizzle or brush with the low-FODMAP Fruit Pizza glaze
  • Refrigerate about 30 minutes prior to serving if you can wait.
