How To Make A Chocolate Dessert Pizza

A soft sugar cookie crust is covered in smooth homemade chocolate frosting, for one completely epic dessert pizza.

This dessert pizza is one of my favorite recipes to make for guests around the holidays, because it looks so stunningly beautiful and impressive no matter how you decorate it. I frosted mine with homemade nutella chocolate frosting and shredded coconut, then I used a cookie cutter to add the strawberry hearts. Other topping ideas include:

Peanut butter

Mini chocolate chips

Chia seeds

Coconut butter

Homemade vegan peanut butter chips

Sliced banana

Rainbow sprinkles

I wanted to send 2016 off in true chocolate-covered style, with this giant frosted sugar cookie pizza.

The versatile recipe is–or can be–flourless, gluten-free, vegan, paleo, and even sugar-free!

*If a nut-free version is needed, try either my Healthy Sugar Cookies or Healthy Breakfast Pizza as a base instead.

  • 2 cups almond meal, or make your own by grinding slivered almonds in a blender or coffee grinder until finely ground (Nut-free options are listed earlier in the post)
  • heaping 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tbsp oil OR water
  • pinch uncut stevia OR 1/4 cup pure maple syrup or honey
  • Only if using stevia version, add 1/4 cup additional water
  • 1 cup frosting, such as chocolate peanut butter or my Healthy Nutella
  • Berries and optional toppings of choice


Preheat oven to 350 F. Line an 8-inch springform pan with parchment, and set aside. (If you have only a regular pan, make sure the parchment goes up the sides, and be very careful lifting it out so the crust does not break. If you only have a 9-inch pan, you might try scaling all ingredients up 1.5 times.) In a measuring bowl, stir together all ingredients except frosting. Transfer the dough to the prepared pan, and use a second sheet of parchment to smush the dough out evenly, pressing down again and again until the dough covers the bottom of the pan. Bake 12 minutes on the center rack. Let cool at least 20 minutes before either frosting right in the pan or removing from the pan and then frosting. I cut the strawberries with a heart-shaped cookie cutter.

    So I absolutely hate the tedious nature of sugar cookies. Sugar cookies with thick frosting as my husband’s favorite. This holiday season I skipped making them in favor of less tedious cookies, and my husband was bummed. Womp womp. So… pizza version of a sugar cookie with thick frosting is a PERFECT compromise. I might stick some random festive sprinkles on there just to make him happy. Haha!

    Once again, you’ve made a holiday bright! I have been gluten, dairy, and sugar-free for ages, but every now and then I really want to make a treat! Your unbaked brownies (black bean ones, too!) have sustained us. (: Your cauliflower pizza crust helps me enjoy pizza night with my family. We make your cookies on a regular basis. My daughters are growing up making your recipes, my neighbors trade notes on things of yours we love……THANK YOU for this website and for giving those of us with dietary restrictions a little fun.

    My 3 year old and I are making your dessert pizza as we speak, and she’s licking the bowl of both the crust ingredients and the healthy Nutella. Thanks for a special New Year’s Eve dessert! We’re big fans.

    How do you cut round strawberries with the heart cookie cutters? Can you use gluten free baking mix instead of almond flour.

    I love this and once again you saved my day I had nothing for my grand children and so I looked on Google and found these recipes and thank God I had the ingredients for these desserts. I love all your recipes and all your creations. Love, Tammy Hargis
