easy paleo recipe for banana-split party pizza

Banana Split Party Pizza

Looking for a healthier dessert idea to “WOW” the crowd at your next party?

Here’s one that serves 12 – and paleo peeps can dig in too practically guilt-free because this one’s completely dairy-free and gluten-free.

Now before you all go crazy on me for making this decadent dessert, let me emphasize this is a special treat for special occasions – not your personal after-dinner dessert for the next 12 nights.

That said, both your paleo and non-paleo family and friends will absolutely love this one. It’s a treat that allows everyone to join in.

We used our Paleo Mudflat Brownie recipe to form the crust of this party pizza in a 13-inch pizza pan. Next I added a layer of paleo banana ice cream (made from coconut milk – instructions below). I placed the pan with the brownie crust and the ice cream layer in the freezer for a couple of hours. Then I topped it off with fresh sliced fruit and drizzles of our Caramel Flavored Topping.

I know, this one is a little over the top. But in a good, “oh my goodness this is so yummy” kind of way!

I can’t even begin to tell you how beautiful this dish looks all sliced up in the pan. If you want an impressive crowd-pleaser, this is it.

Keep this dish in mind for your next get-together – anything from a backyard barbecue to a birthday celebration. It’s the best version ever of a banana split!

Enjoy!
