Fourth of July Fruit Pizza (Vegan)

Fourth of July Fruit Pizza (Vegan)

Fourth of July Fruit Pizza 03

As I stated on Monday, I am eagerly awaiting the Fourth of July. Why? Because I am a patriot dammit….oh and also because FOOD. I love barbeques, which is probably a weird thing for a vegan to say, but it is just so much fun to spend time outside with friends, drinking beer and raising hell, so throwing in an open flame with food on it just seems natural.

This year since we are actually in the country (unlike last year) I wanted to make something new and particularly special. In the past I have loved baking a vanilla sheet cake and covering the whole thing in strawberries and blueberries to make it look like an American flag, which is both delicious and cliche. So what new idea will I do this year? How about an amazingly patriotic pizza minus the cheese factor. This totally vegan pizza is still topped with the same red and blue fruits, but also is a little more of a fresh take. It was super easy to make and I promise it is a real crowd pleaser (no one will even know it is vegan I swear!)

Sauce
  1. -1/4 cup full fat coconut milk (chilled for at least one hour)

  4. -1 tbsp cornstarch
  5. -1 tsp vanilla extract
Toppings

Sugar Cookie Crust
  1. Preheat oven to 350ΒΊ F.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt). In a separate medium sized bowl, cream together powdered sugar, coconut oil, coconut milk and vanilla extract.
  3. Add dry ingredients into wet slowly, stirring constantly and scraping down the sides of the bowl.
  4. Grease a 9" round cake pan with coconut oil. Roll dough into a ball and place in the center of the pan. Slowly and evenly press the ball of dough flat, filling the pan.
  5. Bake for 10 -12 minutes.
  6. While the crust bakes, prepare your filling. Using a hand mixer, whip together the coconut milk, cream cheese, powdered sugar and cornstarch. Once smooth, add in vanilla and blend until smooth again.
  7. Cut your strawberries however you would like for presentation (I cut mine into wide slices to layer as per image).
  8. Once the cookie is done baking remove it from the oven and let it cool for 15 minutes. Remove from pan and cover with filling.
  9. Finally place your fruit in whatever layout you would like atop your filling.

    Keep in mind that gluten free flour is not usually a one to one sub and showing it as a substitute in this case may be a little misleading. In this case, you would probably need xantham gum as a binder and some extra moisture in the batter to keep it from being a crumbly mess. Just some thing to think about!

      Hey Alyssa! Super great to know! I do not use gluten free flour very often and I got the substitution instructions from another blogger. Good to know about xantham gum too, I have yet to try it out! πŸ™‚
