Gluten Free Jack-o-Lantern Fruit Pizza
An easy to make Halloween dessert that's perfect for gluten free diets!
For the crust
- 1 cup Dixie Crystals granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup palm shortening
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp Adam's Extracts vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups gluten free flour mix I used Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1
- 3/4 cup almond flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
For the frosting
- 1/2 cup Litehouse Foods Pumpkin Spice Dip
- 1 cup Dixie Crystals powdered sugar
- 8 tbsp butter
- 1 tsp Adam's Extracts vanilla extract
- Adam's Extracts red and yellow food coloring
For the pizza
- 2 large Navel oranges peeled and separated
- 1 14 oz can Mandarin oranges drained
- black frosting for Jack-o-Lantern smile
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment or a Silpat baking mat.
In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar and shortening till fluffy.
Add egg and vanilla to sugar mixture and mix well.
Slowly, add in flours, baking powder, and salt. Mix till well combined.
Remove dough from mixing bowl. Roll out with a rolling pin into a circle until about 1/4 inch deep. Take some extra dough and make a small square for the stem of the pumpkin.
Bake in oven for 12-15 minutes until set and lightly browned. Remove from oven and cool completely.
For the frosting
Combine all frosting ingredients (except food coloring) in a large mixing bowl using a hand blender until a smooth frosting appears.
Add a few drops of red and yellow food coloring and mix well. Continuing adding food coloring until desired orange color appears. (I needed A LOT)
Spread orange frosting over cooled cookie crust.
Decorate with oranges and create a face with black frosting. Enjoy!
