Delicious and easy nut-free fruit pizza recipe
A majority of keto-friendly fruit pizza recipes contain almond flour or coconut flour (actually, most keto-friendly savory pizza recipes do too!), but this version uses ground sunflower seed meal, which is, quite literally, ground up sunflower seeds.
The recipe features powdered monk fruit sweetener from Lakanto. If you’ve tried Lakanto’s granulated sweetener before, you’ll really enjoy their powdered sweetener because it incorporated realllllly well, just like traditional powdered sugar does.

Keto Fruit Pizza recipe FAQS
Before you make this, I would read through the answers to these commonly asked questions about this particular fruit pizza recipe.
Are there any ingredient substitutions?
There are a few options for substituting some ingredients in this recipe:
Powdered monk fruit sweetener substitution
If you don’t have powdered monk fruit sweetener on-hand, simply pulse granulated monk fruit sweetener in a high-speed blender or food processor until powdered. You can also choose to powder granulated Swerve or erythritol if you do not have any monk fruit sweetener.
This fruit pizza uses a mixture of fresh blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries, but you can interchange with strawberries too since a majority of berries have low net carbs.
Now, if you want to include fruits that are not berries, depending on your daily macro budget, you can use these fresh fruits to top your keto friendly fruit pizza:
- peach – (75 grams), contains 6.5 grams of net carbs
- kiwi – (70 grams), contains 8 grams of net carbs
- cherries – (75 grams) contains 8 grams of net carbs
- clementines – (75 grams) contains 9 grams of net carbs
Note that if you do decide to either change the quantities or substitute the ingredients, know that the carb count may increase, but if you stick to simply subbing in different berries, it shouldn’t be by too much.
Why is monk fruit sweetener used?
Monk fruit sweetener is a net-carb free ingredient that substituted into recipes at a 1:1 ratio for traditional sugar. This sweetener is low-glycemic and is a great sweetener choice if you follow a ketogenic diet.
Where can I buy powdered monk fruit sweetener for the crust and the frosting?
Monk fruit sweetener is now widely available at most grocery stores, especially specialty food stores and Costco. I personally purchase mine online from Lakanto and have it directly shipped to me.

Why do sunflower seeds and sunflower seed products turn green in baked goods?
Sometimes, when baking with baking powder or baking soda, the resulting dish may have green specks in it. This is because sunflower seeds contain chlorogenic acid that reacts to alkaline baking ingredients such as baking soda; this chemical reaction is what makes it turn a green color. You don’t have to worry though, since the color doesn’t change the flavor and taste, it’s still safe to eat.
The best foolproof way to avoid this is to use gluten-free baking powder.
How to make ground sunflower seed meal from scratch?
If you do not want to purchase ground sunflower seed meal (although, I highly recommend you do because it’s a fantastic ingredient to have on-hand!), you can simply add raw sunflower seeds to your food processor and pulse until fine. Be sure to not pulse for too long though or you’ll end up with sunflower seed butter.
How do you keep keto fruit pizzas from being soggy?
Nobody wants a soggy pizza! You’ll have to remember that fruits hold water in them, so you should only add the toppings when you’re ready to serve the dish. This is the best way to ensure that this dish retains its structural integrity.
You can also create the crusts ahead of time, but as with any baked good, it’s always better to enjoy them the same day they’re made.
How many grams of net carbs per serving?
Each slice contains 3.8 grams of net carbs. This recipe yields 10 servings in total and 1 slice is equivalent to 1 serving.
For additional information on the nutrition per serving, including total carbs, fat, protein, and fiber content, see the nutrition label below the recipe card at the bottom of this post.
What diets is this recipe compliant with?
This low carb fruit pizza is suitable for all the following diets:
- Keto and Low-Carb: One serving contains just 3.8 grams of net carbs.
- Gluten-Free: This recipe does not contain gluten products.
- Nut-Free: This recipe is safe for those who have nut allergies or nut intolerances. It is not made with almond flour.
- Coconut-Free: No coconut products were used to make this dish.
- Vegetarian: This sugar-free fruit pizza is vegetarian-friendly.
- Refined Sugar-Free: This nut-free fruit pizza is made with monk fruit sweetener, a keto-friendly low-carb sweetener, and is sugar-free.
How to store this recipe?
Store each component of the fruit pizza (crust, frosting, and toppings) separately in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 1 day. This is because the juices from the berries can seep into the crust and will make it soggy.
For optimal flavor and texture, though, I would recommend serving after prepared.
How to make this Keto and Nut-Free Fruit Pizza from scratch

Crust: In a large mixing bowl, mix all dry ingredients.
Using an electric mixer, mix together dry crust ingredients, egg, butter, and vanilla extract until well-combined.
Using a rubber spatula or palette knife, spread the mixture onto prepared baking sheet into the desired shape (rectangle or circle will work best). Transfer pan to oven and bake until slightly golden on top, about 20-25 minutes. Allow to fully cool at room temperature after baking.
Topping: While crust cools, in a mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, mix together cream cheese, heavy cream, monk fruit sweetener, and vanilla extract until thickened.
Using a rubber spatula, spread cream cheese topping atop cooled crust.
Top cream cheese with berries and fresh mint leaves.

Powdered Monk Fruit Sweetener Substitution: If you don’t have powdered monk fruit sweetener on-hand, simply pulse granulated monk fruit sweetener in a high-speed blender or food processor until powdered.

Berry Substitutions: You can use other low-carb fruits in place of the fresh berries included in the recipe. The most viable options that I would recommend are strawberries and kiwis. Note that any fruit substitution will change the resulting nutrition information of the dish.
Crust Turned Green In Some Spots: This is due to a chemical reaction between the baking powder and ground sunflower seed meal. Do not worry! The crust is safe to eat and will taste just as intended.
Dimensions of Fruit Pizza: The recipe was developed by making the crust in a rectangular shape (the dimensions were 10.5” x 7.5”). You can choose to make the crust circular if you prefer.
Net Carbs: Per serving, which is equivalent to 1 slice of fruit pizza, there are 3.8 grams of net carbs.
