Low-Carb Fruit Pizza For the Fourth of JulyPin recipeFollow us 125.0k

With the Fourth of July around the corner, here's a delicious low-carb recipe for our American friends so they can celebrate Independence day the keto way!

Fruit Pizza was always a favorite summertime dessert of mine growing up! Typically it’s a large sugar cookie topped with a cream cheese icing and all sorts of fruit.

To make this easy keto fruit pizza we’re making a quick low-carb sugar cookie base and using a classic full-fat cream cheese frosting made low-carb with erythritol-based sweetener and topping it off with fresh strawberries and blueberries. You could also use raspberries or blackberries. All of these options are low in carbs and ideal for those who need to watch their blood sugar levels.

Hi! I was wobdering can I swap ceeam.cheese for mascarpone? My eldest son doesn't like cheese at all and I think mascarpone is a milder taste...but as I've never dobe any icing I do not know how it will result...
Thks!!

Hi Blanca, mascarpone would be a fabulous alternative, I think it will actually make the topping fancier 😊

Served this on Independence Day. It was a hit with everybody—even the SAD people! It was so light after a great keto meal. One said it was the best keto dessert I had ever served! That’s saying a lot. Thanks so much for this recipe. 😊

Thank you so much, we appreciate your lovely feedback!

We cannot get heavy whipping cream here in this part of Canada.  Will regular whipping cream work as well?  Will it work to replace heavy whipping cream in all recipes?

Reply

Hi Joy, yes that will work! Any cream with 30-40% fat will work best.

My husband made the one large cookie for 4th of July into cookies and topped just like the 4th pizza.  They were delicious 😋

I'm glad you enjoyed! 😊

Can I make this with using all coconut flour? I'm allergic to tree nuts. If so, what would be the amount of coconut flour?

Reply

Yes you can although the texture will be different (more chewy, less crispy on the edges). The rule of thumb is to use 1/3 cup coconut flour for every 1 cup of almond flour and add one more egg, possibly also some coconut oil or butter (depending on the texture). You could also use ground sunflower seeds instead (same amount as almond flour, substitute 1 cup of ground sunflower seeds for 1 cup of almond flour). I hope this helps!
