This dessert pizza is made from a chewy & soft chocolate coconut crust, topped with a coconut cream nut butter frosting, and piled high with chocolate sauce, nut butter, and all your favorite toppings! Made healthier using cauliflower rice in the crust, no refined sugar, and all gluten free ingredients.
Life is short. Eat dessert first.
A quote to live by right there! I absolutely loveeee dessert. I have a sweet tooth bigger than some people’s entire appetites. And you know what? That’s okay! I tell my clients all the time that you can build a healthy lifestyle around your preferences and in a way that feels and tastes good to you. You really can have it all! We just have to be smart about it.
That is why I love making delicious desserts like this one. I take something seemingly unhealthy and turn it into a treat that is both drool worth and good for you. This dessert pizza is not going to make you feel guilty, leave you feeling heavy, or needing a nap after you eat it. It is made with cauliflower rice, coconut flour, dark chocolate (a health food!), and my nut butter coconut cream frosting. And it has zero refined sugar, is gluten free, and has no weird ingredients you need to be weary of. So have your cake and eat it too! Or in this case, your pizza 😉
Let’s Make a Dessert Pizza!
Okay let’s start with the crust:
You can measure out your cauliflower rice before or after you cook it, whatever is easier, because it won’t change the overall amount too much. Usually if I am working with a bag of pre-riced cauliflower I’ll measure it after since I am steaming it in the bag. If I have a head of cauliflower I have riced myself, I’ll measure it out first and then microwave it in a bowl with a little water to cook.
I’d stick to coconut flour for this crust. It absorbs the moisture better than other flours which allows your crust to be stiff enough to pick up. It also keeps the flavor profile on the right track with the sweet coconut-y taste!
Lastly – make sure you buy dairy free, sugar free, dark chocolate chips. If keeping this recipe dairy/sugar free are both important to you. If not, you can use whatever chocolate you want!
Check out my Amazon shop to see the flours and chocolate chips that I use and recommend!
Cook time may vary. Mine was closer to 25 minutes but I think my oven is starting to get old and be on the long end of baking 😛 You want the edges to look golden brown and you want the crust firm to the touch. But it will crisp up a little after baking too!
Toppings are whatever you want them to be! In the photos and in this recipe, I used my nut butter coconut cream frosting. And I loved it! But if you are a chocolate-all-the-way kinda person feel free to use my chocolate buttercream sweet potato frosting. Or maybe you want a java pizza? Try my coffee protein frosting instead.
I also drizzled mine with some nut butter and dark chocolate sauce because YUM. And then finished it off with some gogi berries and bee pollen. I like this combination of flavors but again you can switch this up! I bet some cacao nibs would be really great!
Just wait until the crust has cooled to put all of these on otherwise you will end up with melted frosting 🙂
