Gluten & Dairy-Free Raspberry Cream Cheese Rolls 


For the Dough:

  • 1/4 Cup Unsalted butter (we use Country Crock avocado butter for dairy-free)
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2-1/4 tsp Yeast Packet (it comes inside the package for the Pizza Crust)
  • 1 Cup Water (warm)
  • 3-1/4 Cup Gluten-Free Pizza Crust
  • White Rice Flour or Organic White Rice Flour (as needed for dusting.. I used Pamelas because I use it for everything)

For the filling:

  • 1/4 Cup Softened butter (we use Country Crock avocado butter for dairy-free)
  • 1/4 Cup Light brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 Cups Frozen raspberries
  • 1/4 Cup Granulated sugar
  • Zest of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 Teaspoon Cornstarch

For the frosting:

  • 4 Ounces cream cheese at room temperature (use Daiya cream cheese for dairy-free)
  • 1/4 Cup unsalted butter (use Country Crock Avocado Butter for dairy-free) at room temperature
  • 1 Cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon lemon zest


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Add 1 Tbsp of the sugar to the warm water.
  • Sprinkle the yeast packet on top of the water and let sit 5 minutes.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, making sure to blend in thoroughly.
  • Add the yeast mixture to the butter/egg mixture and blend.
  • Add in the pizza crust mix; blend two minutes.
  • Heavily dust a 2-foot long sheet of wax paper with rice flour — spread batter over the length of the wax paper, about 19 inches.
  • Using warm water, wet your hands, and press the dough outward to fill the sheet.
  • Keep your hands wet. Once the batter evenly covers the wax paper, brush melted butter over the batter from edge to edge.
  • Sprinkle dough with 1/4 cup brown sugar.
  • In a medium bowl, carefully stir together the frozen raspberries, granulated sugar, lemon zest, and cornstarch.
  • Sprinkle raspberry mixture over the dough.
  • Cut the roll into 1 1/2 inch pieces and gently place the disks into the 8 x 8 inch or 9 x 13 inch greased pan. (It is okay to crowd them.)
  • Let the rolls rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  • Bake for 20 - 25 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, cool until the butter stops bubbling, then flip out onto a plate.


If you're dairy-free, skip the cream cheese frosting OR use daiya cream cheese and dairy-free butter. They're so good plain though. For everyone else, frost and enjoy!
