That was some Superbowl Sunday…not. The game might have been boring, but at least I got to spend time with friends, watch the commercials (which weren’t that great this year) and eat some great food! I made a little Superbowl preview before the game, but now it’s time to share the recipes!
The first recipe I am going to share with you is my gluten free dessert pizza! Out of all the food I made Sunday, this one was my favorite. I am not gluten free and do not live a gluten free diet. I know a lot of my readers, friends, and recently, my mom live a gluten free lifestyle. When I was buying graham crackers for my dessert pizza, I thought it’d be cool to offer a gluten free one as well! If you haven’t tried the S’moreables graham crackers yet…you have too! They are incredible and taste so much better than actual graham crackers. You don’t have to be gluten free to enjoy a good gluten free food. Apples are gluten free and I enjoy them! 😉
Ingredients: *1 Large Ripe Banana, *1 Box Gluten Free Graham Crackers (or regular), and *3 Tbsps. Agave (or honey)
Frosting Ingredients: *3/4 Container Truwhip (or light cool whip) *1/4 Cup Light Cream Cheese, and *1/2 Tsp Vanilla, *1/3 Cup Baking Stevia
*I made two pizzas, so I doubled the frosting recipe.
Preheat oven to 350 Degrees.
Crush the graham crackers until they turn into a floury texture. *I used my food processor.
Add the banana and agave to the graham cracker crumbs.
Use a hand or an electric mixture to combine the ingredients. If you do not have one, use a fork and mash the bananas up completely.
Roll the dough into a ball and place it on a greased baking sheet. Make sure the baking pan and all other dishes are clean. Cross contamination can make someone with a gluten intolerance sick.
Flatten your crust into any shape you’d like. I made mine rectangle to represent a football field.
As you can see, my rectangle was kinda sloppy.
To give my crust a little extra character, I indented the sides with a fork. (kind of like I do with pie)
Place the dessert pizza in the oven for 12-15 minutes. Keep an eye on it. It’ll feel like a big soft cookie when it’s done.
While the pizza crust is in the oven, prepare the topping!
-Add all ingredients into a mixing bowl or mixer. Stir the frosting until creamy and whipped. I used my little hand mixer.
Place the frosting in a bowl and place it in the refrigerator to firm.
While the frosting is firming up, let the pizza crust cool on the baking sheet.
Get your toppings ready to decorate!
You can decorate the pizza for any occasion. I chose the two Super Bowl team colors. You can turn the pizza into a heart for Valentines Day, a tree for Christmas, a pumpkin for Halloween, Blue for a baby shower…and so on!
I used blueberries, kiwi, orange peels, blueberries, six lets, pecans, and almonds for my decorations.
Once the pizza is cool, remove it from the baking sheet.
Take the topping out of the refrigerator and spread it across the pizza evenly.
Add the decorations to the dessert pizza.
First, I decorated the Seattle Seahawk’s side.
I separated the side with “football shaped” nuts.
Last, I decorated the Denver Bronco’s side!
We all devoured the Bronco’s side first. Hopefully that wasn’t some kind of football voodoo.
After preparing the dessert pizza, place it in the refrigerator until serving time!
You can use a knife or a pizza cutter to cut into the dessert pizza. Or if it’s just you, break it off with your fingers! Whatever you prefer!
The crust was so cake-ish. This was such a treat. I don’t understand how people say gluten free food is gross. I couldn’t even tell it was gluten free!
We kind of slaughtered the pizza by picking at it piece by piece all night until it was gone. If you were to cut the pizza properly; it would have made 24 pieces.

Hi Taralynn, I recently made this, and just wanted to let you know a way to make it better – healthier and tastier! Instead of the topping that you made, I just whipped some coconut milk into a “Whipped cream” and put that on top. YUM SO GOOD.

Oh yum!! i’ll have to give that a try!:) Thanks
So, does the crust recipe make two pizzas? I think I’m going to make it for our family coming down for the 4th, and I want to make sure I have enough for everyone!
