Cake Batter Pizza?

Pin It!

From what I can tell, a successful kids’ birthday party has three components:

1. Presents.
2. Pizza.
3. And cake. Emphasis on the cake!

Why not save time and energy by combining two of the three?

Cake Batter Pizza
(Serves 1-2)

  • 70 grams (1/2 cup) flour (I used two parts spelt flour to one part coconut flour. White flour or whole wheat pastry flour work too. You can also make a Gluten-Free Version.)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • sweetener (such as 2 tbsp sugar or 2 nunaturals stevia packets)
  • 100 grams (a little under 1/2 cup) water or other liquid, such as juice or milk of choice
  • 32g (2 tablespoons) coconut oil, or applesauce for a fat-free version (or try using pumpkin, canola oil, mashed banana, or even baby food!)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • optional, for a buttery “cake” flavor: 1/4 tsp butter extract (It’s vegan)
  • A few handfuls of sprinkles

Cook in an un-preheated oven at 400F for 14-15 minutes or until done. Leave out 10 minutes before cutting around the sides and then transferring to a plate. (Note: be sure to spray your cake pan. If you have trouble with a pizzert that sticks to the pan, try putting it onto a sprayed or oiled baking sheet instead, and use a rolling pin to flatten.)

See original pizzert post for: Calories and Nutrition Facts.

I made this for my little friend who loves spwinkles (her way of saying “sprinkles”). Hanging out with little kids gives you the chance to act like a little kid, yourself. And if–by the end of the night–you’ve not been “spwinkled” out, you can always chase down your dessert pizza with:

cake batter milkshake

The famous Cake Batter Milkshake.

Do you like pizza?
What are your favorite toppings? Aside from sprinkles, of course!

    Mushrooms, olives, and broccoli are my favorite pizza toppings! I have also put peanut butter in leftover pizza with great results. My mom always put broccoli on homemade pizza when I was a kid. It was sure a hard blow when I later learned that not everyone does that :). LOL!

  2. Freya says:

    I don’t like pizza at all, but THAT is the kinda pizza I could eat!! So pretty!

  3. Ah again this is so colorful and yummy looking! Looks fun to eat too!

  4. I love hummus, artichoke, peppers, onions and spinach! Love the cake batter creation! That is tons of fun on a plate! YUM!

  5. Ahhhhh! My arms literally flung into the air upon seeing the first pic of this post! Who can think of savory pizza toppings when staring at that beauty?! Love it!

  6. Yum!! I loveee pizza! :) My favorite pizza to make in the summer is a margarita pizza with marinara, mozzarella, fresh tomatoes, and basil.

  7. Oh my goodness! Could this be considered breakfast cuz it’s about that time and I want some!! :)

  8. Debra says:

    My kids would so love this!

  9. that looks so colorful! i might have to try this with a 2lb bag of coconut flour being sent to me lol. one can only make so many muffins!

  10. These look amazing! Katie, you never cease to amazing me! I’ll definitely be making this for breakfast in a few days! :-)

  11. Oh my I’m going to have to make this! Do you think coconut butter instead of oil would work?

    1. Yes, as long as it’s melted first (i.e. soft), I think it would be fine! :)

  12. On Pizza, I love VEGGIES!!! 😀 Now, if you’re talking Pizzerts…….CHOCOLATE!!!!! 😀 I love Nut Butters, especially Peanut Butter on a Chocolate Pizzert, and I like to mix the toppings. :) CANDY BARS seem to inspire my Pizzerts. 😉

    You are so smart Katie! 😀


  13. Jess says:

    ugh, it looks so good! must have…maybe tomorrow b/c i have so much on my plate today :). i have some red bean paste to use, and i don’t want it to go bad.

  14. I am drooling. Looks SO darn good!! And butter extract?! Lol you really DO get everything over in America!! 😛

    Pizza?! Nah, I’d take pizzert instead any day!! With coconut butter and chocolate chips on top! 😀

    1. LOL yeah they think of everything. Know what’s even scarier? Butter extract is actually vegan! I emailed Wilton, and they told me so!

      1. Haha well in deprived England we just get a few normal ones, like vanilla, lemon etc. It does make you wonder what it’s made from! 😛

  15. Hannah says:

    This just makes me want to have a party right NOW!!
    Who says every day can’t be a celebration??
    I like pizza but it has got to have GOOD crust. no white flour doughy mess; real, the whole wheat stuff. and I like my pizza topped with lots of chunky tomato sauce and veggies. no cheese, please!

  16. oh ps.. do you eat everything you make? cuz if so.. i would like to trade lives with you.. kay thanks

    1. Hahaha well a lot of it goes to taste testers. As I wrote at the bottom of the post, this one was for the little sister of one of my friends. Whenever I go over to their house now, she meets me at the door and is like, “Make me something with spwinkles!” It is so freakin adorable!

      Also, I often use bad experiments for the photoshoots, because for the food I actually am going to eat, I want it to stay cold/hot/not cut up ;). So, for example, the cookie dough oatmeal cake? lol that was a bad experiment! I made another one later that might not have looked as pretty but was much tastier!

  17. That’s so pretty! I loooooce pizza! Veggies, all of them, and cheese.

  18. katie says:

    I just almost licked the screen !lol!! omg and I thought my smores pizzert was good! I was so wrong! This looks amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yummy!!

    1. I think mine might look good, but yours sounds like it would TASTE better… maybe because yours has chocolate and mine does not? 😉

  19. Kelsey says:

    pizza and cake in one?? you are a genius :)

  20. kathleen says:

    It looks a lot like the dessert pizza my mom used to make all the time called “fruit pizza”. It was a sugar cookie crust, cream cheese frosting and then you’d place brigtly colored ruit in consecutive circles. Kiwi, mandarin oranges, black or red grapes. It was delicious and gorgeous.

  21. The pizzert looks so pretty – love the sprinkles! 😀 Love pizza as well with lots of vegetables.

  22. THIS LOOKS AMAZING!!! I love pizza, however I am boing I like cheese pizza! Well cheese pizza is second to dessert pizza, i love going to cicis and getting the apple crumb pizza!!! yummyy

  23. I think this actually includes all 3 components of a good kid’s birthday party: it’s a gift to your tastebuds.

  24. Megan says:

    MM, I know what my dessert tonight is going to be… 😀

  25. Renée says:

    This is definitely going on the to-do list.
    I love anything with sprinkles!

  26. Disturbed says:

    Dried fruit=best topping ever.

  27. This is adorable!! Love that it feels special, when really all you do is add some sprinkles :) You are a genius, Katie!

  28. how could you not start your day off with a smile after consuming this treat for breakfast?! Just look at it!!

  29. Hela says:

    I am sure all kids would love to have this pizza on their birthdays!! wonderful :)
    To be honest… I am not that much into pizza (except the Breakfast Pizzert, of course!!!!!!!!!!!) and never have been… I probably eat about 2 pizzas a year.

    1. I’m not really either! I used to hate tomato sauce (which I now love), so I never liked pizza… and now I don’t eat cheese lol.

      1. Hela says:

        cheers to us only BREAKFAST pizza-lovers 😀
        oh really, you didn´t like tomato sauce? But glad to hear you do now 😉
        I was actually having a vegan pizza in Paris, once, that was topped with grilled vegetables, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. My face lit up when my pizza arrived, as it was so super light and tasted fantastic and it was vegan :)

        1. I know, right? I wisened up!!

  30. GORGEOUS!!!! I just wish that there was a sugar-free sprinkles…. :( Maybe I will invent some!

  31. This looks so cute! I love the sprinkles.

    On pizza I like tons of black olives, green peppers and onions!

  32. Emma says:

    Fe fi fo fum I need that pizzert in my tum! When katies recipes enter my head I just have to make my own instead! Xxx

    1. LOL girl your poem is TOO cute!!!

  33. Butter extract?! Be still my heart, now I can make sugar cookies without Earth Balance! This looks amazing, I can’t wait to try it!

  34. Albizia says:

    That’s the cutest pizzert ever! Can I have a piece, please? 😛

    1. Oh you deserve way more than a piece! Come over here and I’ll bake you a whole one!

  35. Mellie says:

    Oh that’s so cute! I love pizza but I’ve never had a really good dessert pizza! This looks good though!

  36. Amazing. Like a health nut’s version of funfetti cake – love it!

  37. Leashieloo says:

    That is like the mother of all pizzerts!

  38. Katie the recipe is wonderful AND so are the photos…seriously so pretty and beautiful!

    Coming up with recipes is only HALF the battle; making them beautiful in photos is the 2nd half. I am working hard on both halves :) As you are clearly, too!

    Great job :)

    1. Oh goodness yes! Like my raw thin mint brownies… poor guys :-?. They looked awful!

  39. Tulika says:

    Ohhh man, you’ve got me again, Katie!! That looks so delish. (Seriously, the pics are awesome!!)

  40. Who needs savory pizza when you have pizzerts?!

    Your photography skills are seriously amazing, Katie!

  41. I think I might have to get into this soon. That seriously looks amazing and I love me some cakebatter!

  42. Can I just say how much I am loving your sprinkles kick?! Every time I come to your page it’s like a little trip back to my childhood :)

  43. Lot-O-Choc says:

    Oh yum i love the look of yoru cake batter pizza, i dont like normal pizza as im not a fan of cheese but a place nears me does one with minimal cheese with prawns, olives, red onions & mushrooms on..YUM!

  44. Ally says:

    This looks SO good – I can’t wait to try it! Recently I tried another version of the pizzert: Apple Cinnamon Struesel Pizzert! I added 1/2 diced apple, 1/2 tsp cinnmamon, 1 tbl steel cut oats to the batter and then topped it with sprinkled cinmnamon and stevia! It was super yummy!

    1. That sounds delicious! You had me at struesel hehe!

  45. hi cck, i’m usually a lurker but i wanted to say that the cake batter milkshake is looking so tempting i may try it even though i usualy dont do smoothies.

    also, i found a pic of you on this site (i’m not spamming i swear)… was wondering if you knew about it:

    1. Yeah, someone else told me about that too and gave me the link this morning. Weird! The post says I met the girl at the grocery store and modeled for her, which definitely isn’t the case. The photo was taken at my house lol.

  46. Kiersten says:

    If you have kids someday, you’ll be the best mommy ever. I wish my mom would have made snacks like that for me when I was a kid.

  47. Namaste Gurl says:

    That’s super cute and looks amazing, Katie!
    How much coconut flour and spelt did you use- 1/4 of each?

    1. To be reeeeaally exact, 24g coconut flour (3T) and 45g spelt flour (1/3 cup plus 1T).

  48. Michael and I were talking about making a desset pizza yesterday…and this is definitely going to be the crust! Ohh my.

  49. I want these for my birthday cake!!!

    Photos look amazing girl!

  50. Moni'sMeals says:

    Nice Katie! I will make this for sure. :)

    Bless you.

  51. Tara says:

    So this is pretty much genius. I love sprinkles, I love cake, I love pizza, and I love parties. I’d love to have them all for breakfast (the party is in my tummy).
    My favorite pizza toppings are a plethora of veggies! I also love adding dried fruit and spinach.

  52. I am lovvvving your “Funfetti” desserts!

  53. Of COURSE I like pizza! I love it topped with tons and tons of vegetables. The more the merrier!!! :)

    This pizzert is genius. I can’t wait to try it!

  54. Lauren says:

    so fun!! food is so much better when its colorful!!

    1. I feel the same way! LOL I don’t really like the taste of sprinkles (or rather, I don’t think they have much of a taste), but they’re just so PRETTY!

  55. Shannon says:

    Seriously, I think I’ve found my birthday cake!

  56. Hannah says:

    Ah, so good. Katie why are you so amazing?
    I just made some socca pizza that rocked my world, toppings were: Nooch, Avocado, & Sun Dried Tomatoes. So good.

  57. Gen says:

    Yuuum! That seriously looks good! 😀
    You take the best food pics!

  58. Ohmygah. You have got to slow down! I have like 50 pages on this site bookmarked!!! I need to get busy in the kitchen.
    My favorite toppings are veggies of course, but before I was vegan, it was goat cheese. I used to put goat cheese on everything, I tell ya!
    Chocolate also sounds like a good topping for a pizza too :) Just not with the veggies 😉

    1. Hahaha chocolate covered veggie pizza… hmmm…

  59. Sarah says:

    omg, i love you! CAKE ANYTHING grabs my attention immediately! Ill be on this verrryyyy soon 😀

  60. Emily K says:

    Do you have a cake batter baby recipe in the works?!

    1. I have thought about it!! Technically, the babies are supposed to be raw, but that didn’t stop me from making a smores one. So why not sprinkles? But next up is either cake batter ice cream or cake batter oatmeal… or cake batter baked oats! I’m loving this sprinkle thing!

  61. Anonymous says:

    you used the word “infamous” incorrectly

    1. You wanna pick a fight with someone who got 1600 on her SATs? Really? Yes, I know “infamous” has a negative meaning. I was making a joke.

      1. On second thought, I’ll just change it. It obviously means more to you than to me, since you bothered to take time out of your day to point out my “mistake” (which really wasn’t, in fact, a mistake).

    2. Lisa says:

      Wow, Katie, I knew you were smart, but 1600?! You’re a genius!!! Share some of those brains, girl ;).

      And lol about the anonymous comment. Now that you changed it, hopefully she’ll be able to sleep nights! 😉

  62. Allison says:

    Heya! this looks amazing!! One question: It might be because it’s 1:30 am lol but i can’t seem to find the vanilla fudge frosting recipe – that or there is something i’m missing in the link! hehehe 😉 i’m sure it’s here somewheres!

    anywho can’t wait to try this :) yum!

    great job!


  63. Allison says:

    … oh dear, nevermind – I see now in the smaller print – hahaha
    grocery store here i come! (tomorrow)


    1. Ooo let me know what you think if you do try it! :)

      1. Allison says:

        hi Katie!!

        so i just tried it – and the frosting (i only had coconut oil not coconut butter and it worked deliciously!! it was kind of buttery and very tasty and i added a splash of vanilla soy milk to get it going in my blender!) and i absolutely LOVED it! i’ve been on a bit of a cleanse lately – mostly just eating all the good stuff, tons of veggies, smoothies, with reasonable grains etc. and nuts and seeds etc. so this was just the treat i needed! hehehe :oD

        thank you so much ! cant’ wait to try more of your recipes :oD


        1. Aw Allison, I’m so excited you tried it!! Yay!! hehe :)

  64. Dana says:

    This looks so delicious!! I’m gluten free and it is great to see blogs that post gluten free variations!!! I am so confused as to what recipe you used for the delicious looking frosting.. can you help me?? Thank you!

    1. Hey Dana! The frosting is linked in the words “Vanilla Fudge Frosting.” Here’s the link:

      It’s also gluten-free :).

  65. Whoa. This looks delicious. I want to make this…. too bad I juuuust celebrated a friend’s bday this past weekend. I don’t think I have any bdays coming up soon… wahhhh

    1. Celebrate an UN birthday! 😉

  66. wendi says:

    Thank you soooo much! My son will have this on his first birthday!!!!!
    I am excited!
    But your frosting looks alot ‘whiter’ than in your recipe you liked to. Did you do anything different?


    1. Hey Wendi! Let me know how he likes it!! :)
      As for the frosting, the difference is probably that I omitted the cinnamon this time. Also, the photo was taken in very bright light, so it might be a little washed out. lol

  67. Lorin says:

    I just made the pizzert this morning. I used 2 tbsp banana, cinnamon, and chocolate chips with peanut butter on top for an Elvis-like variation. I also used 1/4 cup oatmeal and 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour. It was really good, but I didn’t have a small enough pie pan so I just put it on a cookie sheet. It reminded me of a thick pancake and I threw in some sprinkles for good measure, I ate 3/4 of it though :) Thanks for all the delicious recipes.

    1. Aww, thank YOU for trying them! Seriously, it always makes me so happy!

  68. Wow, Katie! These cake batter recipes look AMAZING!!!! I can’t wait to try them! Thank you for posting them! You are so talented and creative!!! :)

  69. wendi says:

    Update: My son loved the cake! I doubled the recipe I believe and used 3/4 coconut flour to 1/4 part lentil/quinoa mix. Its what I had and it turned out great. I left out the sprinkles and did the frosting with coconut oil and it was delish!
    Thanks again :)

    1. Thank YOU for making it… and for leaving such a sweet comment! I’m so excited he liked it! :)

  70. I am like mentally ticking off in my head to make sure I have all the ingredients so I can go in the kitchen and make this now!

    1. Oooo let me know if you like it! :)

  71. Ok, I HAVE to make that “pizza.” How do you come up with these recipes?? You are a genius!

    1. chocolate-katie says:

      awww than u!!!! :)
      lol I have too many recipes… it’s hard to write posts for them all 😕

  72. Hey Katie! I hope you don’t mind that I kind of played around with this recipe as well as the chocolate-banana-coconut fudge frosting recipe, and the cookie ball pops and posted the results on my blog. I gave full credit for your original recipes and ideas! Here’s the link: I hope you don’t mind!!

    1. Awww I’m so excited you tried all the recipes! Your chocolate pizzert cakes look especially awesome… as do the pb cookkie balls!

      1. Why thank you :) I’m so glad you don’t mind that I played around with your recipes..they’re so fun!

  73. Kathy says:

    What’s the brand of sprinkles that you use? All the brands/kinds I found either had 1) Hydrogenated fats, 2) Artificial colors, or 3) All of the above
    -Pins onto Pinterest-

    1. Hi Kathy! You can actually find a brand called “Let’s Do Organic” at Whole Foods in the baking section. It is completely organic and free of trans fats :).

      1. Kathy says:

        Oh, thank you! ^^ I’ll surely have to check it out!

  74. Ally's Oma says:

    I love it, I love your site! I finally found some things I can eat. I’m 55 and have been a chocolate/sweets freak all my life. Then my adrenals crashed, I had to stop all sugar & coffee, then found out I’m allergic to eggs, milk/dairy, flour, lots of veggies (I can have cocoa, but not the stuff that makes it taste good)….and the list goes on, and on, and….but I can eat the pizzert and even make it for my Sunday School kids for a good snack! Thank you so much…..I’m so grateful I found your recipes.

    1. Aww wow, your sweet comment made me SO happy! I am so glad you found me too.

      Chocolate hugs!!! :)

  75. Jen says:

    Hi Katie!
    I love all your recipe ideas and cannot wait to start to bake them!!! Keep up the great work! :)

    What kind of butter extract do you use? Is that considered artificial? I ma not familiar with it!
    Thanks so much!!

    1. I found one by Wilton, and I emailed the company who assured me it’s vegan. But yeah, it’s not exactly all-natural! I figure it’s a tiny amount… and I have only used it once or twice in a year ;).

  76. Katie Campbell says:

    This was beyond amazing. It tastes just like cake!! P.S. I love your blog and all your recipes! I live in Fort Worth and I think you need to open a bakery so I can drive up to Dallas and buy all your food! :]

    1. LOL I would be a very bad bakery owner… I’d eat all the chocolate before it got served ;).

  77. Aly says:

    I cannot eat starches or grains due to severe damage to my intestinal tract. I was wondering, do you think you could use coconut or almond flour or even pea/bean flour in place of the flour? I would have to use stevia and coconut oil in the batter (cannot tolerate sugar) Let me know any suggestions because this looks amazing.

    1. Yup, see the “gluten free version” link for coconut lour :)

  78. Olivia says:

    Hey Katie I think the breakfast pizzas look amazing and really tasty! I want one! But whenever I try to make one mine doesnt look anything like yours :( It is all flopply and rubbery any suggestions? I only have self raising flour which might be the problem but is there anything I can do?

  79. Brooke says:

    I love pepperoni, green peppers and mushrooms on my pizza! Just a question, what do you mean by an un-preheated oven?

  80. Meghan says:

    I pinned this. Looks great! Pinterest name pawsandpotatoes

  81. Michelle says:

    I just made this with banana slices in the batter, and topped it with some chocolate PB2! I think I managed to hit all four major food groups: chocolate, peanut butter, banana, and sprinkles!

  82. Eleanor Young says:

    this reminds me of my fave cake as a kid, we called it rainbow cake, because the sprinkles leak and it’s colourful, might have to try this aswell as all the other recipes I want to try

    fave toppings: pizza with Onions, sweetcorn, peppers and tomatoes (bassically a dominoes vegetarian supreme without mushrooms)

  83. Jessica says:

    HELLO! Katie! Oh my god. Where to begin, I really hope you read and respond to this. You are so inspirational and I absolutely LOVE your website and recipes. I know this is far fetched and may be asking alot ( I’m so sorry, it’s just a question , doesn’t hurt to ask right?:p) my 17th birthday is soon. (June 14) and I have been eating clean and being healthy for a while now but. Cake. Yellow cake. That tastes like cake batter. Gimme!! All of it :|. BUT, I want to indulge on my birthday into something without like a pound of sugar and trans fats.. You know, have my cake and eat it too, literally (every girls dream)! Well I see your mug cakes but I’m not sure how to scale that up to cake size , I’m a little baking challenged in the kitchen if you feel me! And you don’t have a yellow cake (cake batter) flavor in your mug cakes. If you so happen to have the time please help me out with a recipe I can make on my birthday! I’d appreciate it SOOO much. And if not, I love u and ur page anyways. I hope you see this .. GAH! Thank u in advance <3

    1. SO funny… I was planning to post a yellow cake recipe next week! Maybe you were sending me secret subliminal messages :).
      Sometimes I change my schedule around, but I’m pretty sure I will post it by the 14th. Just in case I don’t, can you leave another reply and be sure to fil in your email address in the “email” space (which is only seen by me)? Then I can email you the recipe if I haven’t posted yet.

  84. Bell says:

    Can you make a healthy version of cinnamon scrolls!!! Please

  85. Marie says:

    Hello Katie,

    as for the reply: my favorite pizza topping are artichokes and pineapple :)

    But I am writing primarily to thank you for this recipe! I am currently working on eliminating sugar in my diet and I mean c.o.m.p.l.e.t.e.l.y. And so far I have done a lot of experimenting, often unsuccessfully. But this recipe is I think the first really good cake I managed to prepare! I altered the recipe a bit using only rye flour, a lot of apple puree, baking powder, cinnamon and coconut oil. And it came out perfect! I have already plenty of ideas to make this into so many fantastic desserts!

    And I am sure that more fantastic desserts will be coming since I have discovered your fantastic blog!

    So, I am sending a big thank you from the Czech Republic :)


  86. Janalee says:

    This looks so yummy and I do plan on giving it a try, but I noticed or simply missed the size of pan was not mentioned. Can you supply me with that information? Thank you!

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      8 inch round.

  87. Madeline says:

    I just made this and it turned out so well! I used applesauce in place of oil and it was still super delicious. It was very simple and I will definitely be making it again very soon. Thanks for the recipe!

  88. Jackie says:

    Tried this a couple weeks ago and LOVE it!! My non-healthy friends tried it (without the knowledge of its all natural content) and they all liked it too, was a bit dry on my first try but next time I think I’ll add more coconut oil or possibly bake it shorter. I might even make it again tomorrow for my birthday to have an artificial-and-processed-ingredient-free treat to guiltlessly enjoy! Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe! :)

  89. Katie says:

    So having this for my 13th
