If you are hankering for something sweet, vegan, and gluten-free, you really can’t go wrong with this vegan (and yes, gluten-free) dessert pizza. It tastes so much like the Almond Joy bars of our youth, only so much better, and better for you!
It’s easy as pie (no pun intended) and takes just 5 minutes to assemble, and 15 minutes to bake!
We created this almond joy dessert pizza, but really you can top it with almost anything that you can imagine! Here’s what we did:
Vegan Gluten-Free Almond Joy Dessert Pizza Recipe
- One gluten-free pizza crust (we love Outside the Breadbox, but if you can’t get that you can also get Udi’s gluten-free pizza crust on Amazon)
- One package vegan mini marshmallows (we like the Dandies, which are available on Amazon)
- Almond butter
- Shredded coconut
- Chocolate chips (make sure they are vegan, some contain dairy)
- Chocolate syrup
Preheat your oven to whatever temperature the instructions for your gluten-free crust indicate; if none then preheat to 325-350°.
Put crust on baking sheet.
Spread almond butter on the crust, as thick or as thin as you like.
Sprinkle shredded coconut on top of almond butter.
Dessert Pizza with Almond Butter and Coconut Layers
Sprinkle chocolate chips on top of coconut.
Top with mini marshmallows.
Now put the pizza in the oven and watch it closely – you want the crust to be done and the marshmallows to be either melty or lightly browned (depending on which marshmallows you use). Our marshmallows seemed firm and lightly browned on top, but were melty on the bottom when we pushed down on them, which was perfect for us!
When done, remove the pizza from the oven, and drizzle chocolate sauce all over it.
Spirographed Chocolate Sauce!
That’s it! You’re done! Cut that pizza up and enjoy it warm or at room temperature!
