This gluten-free Fruity Dessert Pizza is perfect as a snack or healthy dessert! This dessert pizza is made with satiating oats and high protein almond flour, while the peanut butter chocolate yogurt glaze adds a healthier frosting.
How’s your week going? Can I just tell you how much I LOVEE this fall weather!? It’s seriously perfect right now. It’s 60’s in the morning, 80’s during the day, and back down to 60’s at night. Wish I could just spend all of my waking hours outside!
But, alas, I need to spend some time in the kitchen so I can make yummy food. Basically, I just need an outdoor kitchen? I’m excited to share a fun, easy recipe with you today. It is great for kids and very flexible – you can use whatever fruit you like best for the toppings.
This fruity dessert pizza is very low in sugar, high in fiber and high in protein! Remember last month’s sweet potato nachos, as part of a collaboration with 64 tailgate ideas? Well, we’re all back today with team-inspired game-day recipes!
My team is New England
Their colors are obviously red, white and blue. I thought these colors would be really easy to work with… But then, I got to thinking – what foods are blue? All I could come up with naturally were blueberries and blue tortilla chips. Are there others, without using food coloring or dyes? I racked my brain for several hours. I asked Ed, and he couldn’t think of any either. Then, he basically told me I should use blueberries because I eat them every day. Well isn’t that the truth!? I decided bluebs would be my go to so I came up with this fruit pizza. By the way, this will also be a hit for your next 4th of July party!
Plus, I really love pizza. There’s something about a mix of flavors over dough that is just so comforting and satisfying. So, I thought why not make it sweeter, rather than the usual savory? I love both, but this fruity dessert pizza is rather refreshing.

Furthermore, since the crust is made with a blend of oats and high protein almond flour, it is gluten free (as long as you stick with GF oats). The almond flour boasts 14 grams of protein in 1/4 cup, so this crust isn’t like the other crusts you’re used to.
I used a 14 inch pizza pan, and I couldn’t fill it all. I filled it about 7/8 full. It would probably be perfect for a 12 inch.
My other tip of advice would be: try not to make the crust too thin. If it’s too thin, it will break easily. It’s great as a oatmeal/granola topping for oatmeal, but to enjoy the pizza you want it kinda thick to slather things on.
Also, let’s talk about this glaze. I don’t know if I’ve written about my obsession with PB2 before, specifically Chocolate PB2. I order it in bulk probably twice a month, to add to oatmeal and yogurt. You just mix it with water and it forms a lower calorie version of peanut butter. So, this chocolate peanut butter yogurt glaze is the perfect “cheese” to your pizza.
- For the oatmeal crust:
- 1 1/2 cups oats
- 1 cup almond flour
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 egg
- 3 tbsp butter
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- For the glaze:
- ½ cup plain greek yogurt
- ¼ cup PB2
- Toppings customize as you choose
- ½ cup blueberries
- 1 cup sliced strawberries
- 1 small kiwi
- Other options: banana mango, pineapple, grapes, cherries, apple, orange
Mix oats, almond flour, maple syrup, egg, butter, baking soda and sea salt in a medium bowl. I recommend a hand mixer to mix well.
One mixed, shape the dough into a ball with your hands. You will need to cup it tightly so it holds, and then spread on pizza pan.
Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes, or until crust hardens.
Let crust cool for 20 minutes. While crust is cooling, mix your peanut butter yogurt glaze.
Top the crust with glaze and optional fruit toppings.
