Easy keto dessert pizza with a chocolate cookie crust, a sugar-free cream cheese frosting and fresh berries. It’s the perfect low carb dessert for any occasion. This post is sponsored by Bocha Sweet.
Pizza can be many things to many people. For those first embarking on a keto diet, it can often seem like it’s off limits. A thing of the past that they can no longer enjoy.
And then they slowly discover that there are, in fact, many wonderful keto pizza recipes that taste just as good, with far fewer carbs. So many possibilities: Cauliflower pizza, zucchini pizza, fathead pizza, and now cookie pizza!
Yep, that’s right, I said it. Pizza can be dessert too. Just think of it. A giant keto chocolate cookie slathered in cream cheese frosting and topped with your favorite sugar free toppings. Berries, nuts, chocolate chips. Let your imagination run wild.
How to make a Keto Dessert Pizza
Keto Cookie Pizza gets an update
This cookie pizza recipe has been on my blog for almost 6 years. It’s a perennial favorite, especially around the Fourth of July, since it’s got a little Red White and Blue going on. And it really appeals to kids. Who wouldn’t love a giant low carb cookie that looks like a pizza?
I do believe I may have been the first person to ever come up with a recipe for a low carb cookie pizza. But I figured it was time for a little update, and a video to show you just how easy and fun it is to make.
But I am also going to throw in a new twist on this dessert pizza and make the whole thing entirely with Bocha Sweet. Because, my friends, I am delighted to tell you that they have come out with a powdered version, perfect for frostings and other confections.
They asked me to try it out and I figured this was the perfect recipe. I could use the granulated Bocha Sweet in the crust and the powdered version in the frosting.
As an aside, I discovered recently that I am pronouncing Bocha Sweet incorrectly. I even do it in the video, much to my chagrin. It’s not a hard K sound but a proper “ch” sound. Not sure why I didn’t know that. I’m slightly embarrassed but hey, what can you do?
Before I go any further, let me tell you that the powdered Bocha Sweet worked perfectly in this frosting. Creamy, smooth, sweet without being overly sweet. I am delighted to have yet another keto sweetener in my arsenal of ingredients.
Tips for perfect Keto Cookie Pizza
This cookie pizza recipe is really quite straightforward, as you can see from the video itself. But here are my best tips for success:
The Crust: The crust is basically a giant chocolate almond flour cookie and could easily be made with the granular or the powdered Bocha Sweet. It’s up to you. Neither will affect the texture in any way. As I know Bocha Sweet is not available in many countries, rest assured that you can use your favorite sweetener here.
I like to roll out the dough into an 11 or 12 inch circle. I recommend a silicone baking mat here, if you have one. It slips and slides around a lot less when trying to roll the dough.
The edges of the dough will crack a bit as your roll it. But you can smooth them out and then crimp them decoratively after you have your circle.
The crust should be baked until it’s just firm to the touch. You want it do be sturdy but you also want it to be tender.
This is a simple keto cream cheese frosting. Be sure your cream cheese is properly softened, or it will get clumpy.
Also be sure that your cream is at room temperature before adding. Cold cream can make the cream cheese clump up again. You really want a smooth frosting.
Be sure to cool your crust properly before frosting it. Otherwise it will get very melty as you add it and possibly run right off your cookie pizza. Wouldn’t that be a shame!
Another shout out for the new powdered Bocha Sweet here, as it was fabulous. You absolutely need a powdered sweetener for this frosting. Granulated sweetener will be far too gritty. (again, since Bocha Sweet isn’t available in all locations, you can use another powdered sweetener).
I love the look of the sliced strawberries, since they resemble pepperoni and make it more like a classic pizza. And I love the contrast of the blueberries and the drizzled chocolate.
But nothing says you can’t use other toppings, like nuts, coconut, or sugar-free chocolate chips.
If you do use fresh fruit, be sure to refrigerate the pizza until you are ready to serve. And store any leftovers in the fridge as well. The frosting and toppings can get a little soggy if it sits for too long at room temperature.
Want to make it dairy-free? Try using coconut oil in the crust, and Kite Hill almond milk cream cheese and some almond or coconut milk in the frosting.
And that’s really it, my friends. This keto dessert pizza is sure to be a hit with kids and adults alike.

This was really good! I made this for my hubby’s birthday! I used the Dairy free substitutes for half the pizza (I’m dairy free) and it was so tasty. He liked the dairy free side more than the dairy side. The Kite hill “frosting tasted more like cheesecake” he said. I love that your recipes are not overly sweet! Will be making this again. I could see making this a dip too with the “pizza crust” made into little cookies. Yum!
P.S. I used powdered Swerve for the cookie and frosting. That’s what I had. Worked fine.
Have you tried this with any other Sweetener? I have Swerve, Allulose and Monkfruit in my cabinet and just curious if any of those would work well?
The original was made with Swerve so use that.
Looks delicious. I’m definitely going to make it. Does the carb count include the strawberries and blueberries?
It includes everything in the recipe.
Do you know how long to bake in an insta pot? My mini Bundt pan is for it.
I am sorry, I haven’t tried to cook this in an Instant pot.
Made this for my partner today and it’s a hot. Will make again. So easy. Thank you for sharing all your wonderful recipes.
Amazing dessert! Held up like day one on day three. The crust tastes just like an Oreo cookie. I feel like its on the lighter side of desserts….heah, heah. Really enjoyed making and eating. Will certainly have again. Thank you very much!
I loved the taste of Bocha Sweet but man oh man it sent me to the restroom for hours! Sorry for the TMI lol but I’d say to start off with a small piece and be sure you don’t have a reaction to it. I was so bummed because to me it was the best sugar substitute out there but I had to throw out my other bags and go back to Swerve. I can’t wait to make this though! I just bought 4 of your cookbooks off of Amazon. So glad I found you!!
I am so sorry to hear that! I have no issues with it but we are all so different. Allulose does that exact same thing to me.
I have found that the taste of Bochasweet is wonderful! However, talk about crazy intestinal issues – what a disappointment. Anyone else have this problem? And if so, does it go away eventually? I will try this recipe with Swerve, which doesn’t cause those issues for me.
We have not experienced any intestinal issues with Bocha Sweet. My whole family ate this without complaint.

Totally a hit here! We love this cookie pizza.
The most delicious keto friendly dessert ever!! Love the chocolate crust idea!!
I haven’t had dessert pizza in a long time, yours looks so pretty. I think this would go well with really cold milk or freshly made coffee.
Love it! Probably one of my favorite recipes of yours.

This dessert pizza sounds incredible!! My kids would LOVE it!!
Do you think you could make this in a tart pan instead? Would you change the baking temperature or time at all?
Well if your tart pan is 9 or 10 inches, it will be a bit smaller in width and thicker. Therefore it may take longer to bake.
I made this on Saturday for me and my husband and WOW!!!! This is the perfect dessert that isn’t too sweet and just right. Everything about this dessert is WONDERFUL. I can’t tell you enough how much we loved it. I even had my grandson get into it and didn’t realize it was Keto. Instead of the sugar you used I didn’t have that, so I used Swerve and it still was wonderful! Thanks for sharing all your wonderful recipes!!!
So happy to hear that!
Would a flax egg be very noticeable in the flavour? I have an egg allergy and this looks pretty scrumptious
You know, I haven’t ever tried it. I would be afraid it wouldn’t hold together as well, but I think it would still be tasty.

Hi Nikki, just speculating here, but you might try substituting the egg with some grass-fed gelatin dissolved in a small amount of water…maybe 1 T gelatin and 2-3 T water? I make an egg-free cracker recipe that uses gelatin (Great Lakes brand) as the binder, and they hold together well and turn out beautifully crisp. It might change the texture of the cookie crust, but it could work nicely.
Hi! Thanks for these recipes! If I were to omit the cocoa powder from the cookie crust for my DS who doesn’t care for it, would you recommend any other adjustments? Thanks again.
I have a vanilla cookie version right here! http://www.swervesweetener.com/recipes/sugar-cookie-pizza/

I Pinned this yesterday and now I’m just getting a server error from asweetlife (which I wasn’t initially), so I can’t access the recipe 🙁
I Googled it, however, and found the recipe, with your photos, uncredited on chefthisup.co. I left a comment directing viewers to this post, but thought you might want to know.
Looking forward to making it!
