This gluten free lemon cookie pizza is a fun treat for the whole family.
Cookie “pizzas” are all the rage right now and I’ve made them in the past with less than nutritious ingredients as a treat for my kids. However, I had some strawberries that needing using up and decided that this time, I would make a gluten free lemon cookie pizza and lighten it up a little.
Of course there is still butter and sugar. It’s a cookie. However, the fruit totally balances them out. Hah! Can’t blame a lady for trying. I also decided to use gluten free flour but this would work just as well with regular flour.
The cookie crust doesn’t have any eggs or dairy either (bear in mind that the topping does have cream cheese but you could easily swap this out for a dairy free alternative like jam or dairy free chocolate).
This was so simple and was prepared in minutes. The topping is just cream cheese beaten together with icing sugar (along with a touch of vanilla sugar) and the fruit was quickly sliced and arranged on top. Go with whatever fruit you have – I used fresh only because I wanted the fruit to stay firm, but other than that, it would work with pretty much anything.
The gluten free lemon cookie pizza is small – my spring-form is only 6”. However, I think I’ve mentioned before that my kids are not overly keen on cream cheese so it was more than enough for the adults, easily achieving six nice slices.
