Ingredients
Cookie Pizza Crust
  • 12 pitted deglet dates
  • 1 C almond meal
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ C rolled oats
Frosting
  • 6 oz creamed cheese
  • 1½ Tbsp honey
  • 1½ tsp vanilla
Fruit
  • ½ C chopped strawberries
  • ½ C chopped oranges
  • ½ C chopped pineapple
  • ½ C chopped kiwi
  • ½ C blueberries
  • ½ C quartered grapes
Instructions
  1. Soak 12 pitted deglet dates in warm water an hour before you begin. Also, about 30 minutes before you begin, remove the cream cheese from the refrigerator so that it can soften.
  2. Once the dates are done soaking, make your dough. Combine the dates, almond meal, baking powder, salt, honey, coconut oil and the vanilla in a food processor. Process until smooth. Then add the rolled oats and process until they are chopped into small pieces and evenly combined into the dough. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for one hour.
  3. While the dough is chilling make the frosting. In a medium mixing bowl combine the cream cheese, honey, and vanilla. Using an electric mixer whip until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Refrigerate until you're ready to use.
  4. Cut up the fruit into small dime-sized pieces while the dough is chilling and then refrigerate until you are ready to use.
  5. Preheat your oven to 350ºF. Roll the dough out between two pieces of parchment paper. Using a water glass as a cookie cutter, cut out 8 circles. This is a soft, sticky dough, so if the dough becomes hard to work with, place it in the freezer for a few minutes to harden. Also, peeling the parchment away from the dough cut outs like a sticker, instead of using a spatula, works best. Bake for 9-11 minutes, and then allow to cool.
  6. Once the cookie crust is done cooling, decorate your fruit pizzas by spreading on a layer of the cream cheese frosting and then sprinkle with fruit. Serve immediately. If you aren't planning on serving the rainbow fruit pizzas all at once, store the cookie crusts, frosting and fruit separately and decorate before serving.
