Our Best Bites posted a delicious looking fruit pizza recipe a few days ago.
I knew I had to try it as soon as I saw it. It’s just the kind of thing my kids would love.
But I needed it to be gluten-free. And dairy-free. But not taste-free.
And it worked.
For the crust I used the sugar cookie recipe from Gluten-Free Girl and subbed out items so i could use what I had on hand which ended up being:
1/2 c sorghum flour
1/2 c rice flour
1 c tapioca flour
1/2 c finely flaked coconut
1 tsp guar gum
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 c lighter bake (a butter substitute made up of applesauce and prunes)
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
pinch of nutmeg
I only chilled it for 30 minutes (no time!) and then rolled it flat using a sheet of plastic wrap to keep the roller from sticking. I baked it for 10 minutes at 375 and it worked great.
To make the fluffy yummy icing I had to make more subs for the dairy.
8oz tofutti (tofu cream cheese substitute)
1/4 c brown sugar
1.5 c Cool Whip
It was heaven I tell you. Heaven! It didn’t taste like whipped tofu at all.
(Which is a good thing in my book.)
I followed the rest of recipe and did the blueberries and strawberries and chocolate.
