Any fruit you want. I used strawberrieskiwi, and peaches, but it would also be great with raspberries, blueberries, cherries, orange slices, banana slices, or pineapple – get creative!
Soak dates in bowl of hot water for 10 minutes. Do not dispose of water.
In food processor, pulse cashews until it looks like coarse sand. Add in a pinch of salt and the dates. Pulse until the mixture stays together easily. If it looks crumbly/dry, add in a tablespoon of water at a time until you reach the desired consistency.
Press date mixture into a 9.5” round baking dish, I used a tart pan. You could also use a square baking dish and make pizza squares rather than slices. Place dish in the freezer for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine Greek yogurt “icing” ingredients together in a small mixing bowl. Taste and adjust to your liking. Set aside.
Rinse and cut your fruit into desired shapes/thickness.
Once the 15 minutes are up, remove the crust from the freezer. Evenly spread the Greek yogurt “icing” over the crust then top with your fruit.
Place pizza in the fridge for at least an hour (Note: We found this pizza tasted best the next day). Slice and serve! Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days. You could probably freeze any extras then defrost in the fridge when you are ready to eat to make it last longer.
