About

Wanna know where I come up with recipes like this one? OK I’ll share my secret with you…

I’m a little obsessed with food. Ha, B would laugh at the “little” part. I’m a lot obsessed with food.

Not just any food, but real, wholesome delicious food. I could (and do!) happily spend 10 plus hours in the kitchen, experimenting and creating new and tasty dishes.

As obsessed as I am with food, I have extremely high standards for the quality and content of what I eat. If it’s processed, filled with gluten, sugar or dairy then I’m not interested. Those foods may taste good, but in the end they leave me feeling gross.

So back to how I come up with these recipes…Whenever I see off-limits food that looks delicious – in an advertisement, at a restaurant, in the store — I go home and come up with a healthy, gluten+sugar+dairy free version of that same food item.

This dessert pizza was on a flier from a pizza place that happened to land in my mailbox. Mmmmm, that dessert pizza that was being sold for $6.99 sure looked amazing, but I could just imagine the awful ingredients it was made of. So I came up with this wholesome version of the same product.

Bet you anything my Apple Dessert Pizza tastes better than that one sold for $6.99! And you know that this one is filled with wholesome ingredients. Yum.

Turns out we can have our cake (er, dessert pizza) and eat it too!


Serves 8
For the Dough:

1 tablespoon raw honey

1 packet active dry yeast

¼ cup warm water

3 tablespoons coconut flour

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 tablespoons coconut palm sugar

¼ teaspoon sea salt

1 egg

1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted

For the Apple Filling:

3 apples, sliced

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon coconut flour

dash of sea salt

For the Icing:

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

dash of sea salt

2 tablespoons pure maple syrup


Directions
1

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet with coconut oil.

2

In a small bowl combine the honey, yeast and warm water. Mix carefully with a fork. Set aside for 5 minutes, until foamy.

3

In a medium bowl combine the almond flour, coconut flour, arrowroot starch, cinnamon, coconut palm sugar and salt. Work out the lumps with a fork. Add the egg, coconut oil and vinegar to the yeast mixture and mix to combine.

4

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones. Mix well and form a ball of dough. Work the dough for about 30 seconds with your hands, smoothing out any lumps.

5

Place the dough ball in the middle of your prepared pan. Dip your fingers in coconut oil, then use them to flatten the dough into a circle.

6

In a medium bowl combine the apple filling ingredients. Arrange the apples spiraling out from the middle of the dough, leaving 2-3 inches of bare dough around the edge. Fold the edge in, over the edges of the apples. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the dough is golden.

7

In a medium bowl combine the icing ingredients. Mix until all lumps disappear. Spread over cooked and cooled pizza.
