Gluten Free Fruit Pizza

I have always loved fruit pizza and used to make it frequently for family events. Of course I used to use store bought sugar cookie dough and powdered sugar to sweeten the cream cheese. Now I can enjoy this dessert pretty much guilt free without compromising on taste! For the sugar cookie, I used a recipe that I found on The Baking Beauties blog. I changed the rice flour to almond flour, margarine to organic butter, cow milk to almond milk, and sugar to xylitol. It turned out amazing and both my husband and I have been devouring it! His exact words were: “I would never guess that this wasn’t regular white sugar and flour”.  He eats lots of white sugar and flour, so when I hear those words I know for sure it was a success!

    I was wondering if I could something else besides potatoe starch?

      You could use more tapioca starch or any other kind of starch. I’d like to come up with a healthier cookie crust with no starch. But this one tasted pretty close to the real thing!
