Finally, this is the one dessert pizza that won't make you feel guilty about eating it. Not only is it keto, but it is also healthy, easy to make, sugar free, and consists of simple ingredients that can be bought in almost any grocery store.
All you need is just 25 minutes of your time to make this insanely delicious keto fruit pizza. You can play around with the toppings for this keto dessert: strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, kiwi, blackberries, peaches, and the list of keto-approved fruits and berries can go on and on.
Also, what I like about this dessert recipe is that you can make the keto pizza crust ahead of time and then add your sauce and the toppings whenever you're ready to serve it. Or you can make it until it is ready to wrap it up in some plastic food wrap and place it in your freezer to wait for the right time.

Are Pizzas Keto Friendly?
Unfortunately, not all pizzas are keto-friendly, and it can sometimes be pretty overwhelming to find the right low-carb pizza. Usually, if you want to make a standard pepperoni and cheese pizza, you would use cauliflower for the keto pizza base. But if you want to make a fruit pizza just like this one, a cauliflower base wouldn't be a good option here. It would be best to make the base out of almond and coconut flour, use cream cheese as the sauce, and top it off with low-carb fruits or berries.
Keto Fruit Pizza Ingredients
It may seem like you need a lot of ingredients to make this keto-friendly fruit pizza. But the truth is that all of the ingredients are pretty simple and widely used in the keto diet culture. Here's what you'll need to prepare:
- Almond and coconut flour - it's best to use a combination of both nut flours to get the perfect pizza base texture. But if you have only almond flour, simply add two extra tablespoons of it instead of the coconut flour (I do not recommend making the pizza base only out of the coconut flour since it might fall apart and you won't even be able to cut the pizza into slices).
- Butter - if you're dairy-free, you can replace it with the same amount of any preferred oil.
- Eggs - you'll need to add some into the pizza base to make sure that it will hold together.
- Sweetener - you can use almost any known sweetener, just double-check to make sure that you use a keto-friendly one (something like monk fruit, allulose, xylitol, stevia, etc.).
- Water - you'll need some to make sure that the keto fruit pizza base is of the right texture.
- Cream cheese - I love to use it instead of the pizza sauce for this fruit pizza.
Optionally, you can also add some vanilla extract or lemon zest to the pizza dough to make it even more flavorful.
Once you've made the pizza base and covered it with cream cheese, you can finally place your toppings on top. Here's what I like to use for this low-carb fruit pizza as the topping:
How to Make Keto Fruit Pizza
Cooking this keto fruit pizza is as simple and straightforward as it can get. Here's what the cooking process for this recipe looks like overall:
- Bake the pizza base: to prepare the base for this pizza, all you need to do is combine all of the needed ingredients (almond and coconut flour, butter, eggs, water, and sweetener) and then lay the pizza dough on the baking sheet and bake it.
- Let it cool down: be patient and wait until this keto food pizza base is fully chilled before spreading the cream cheese and adding the toppings.
- Assemble: using a spoon, spread the cream cheese evenly on the pizza base and place your preferred toppings at the top.
If you have any pizza leftovers, you can simply wrap them up with some plastic food wrap or place them in an airtight container and store them in your fridge for up to three days. Then simply, whenever you want to eat it, just take a slice and enjoy.
Also, it's possible to freeze this keto fruit pizza. You can either freeze it fully cooked and ready and then simply thaw that pizza in your fridge before serving it, or freeze only the pizza base. I do recommend freezing only the pizza base, since if you freeze the whole ready pizza, the base might get too soft from the fruits once they thaw.
