As I mentioned before, this Christmas holiday we had Borneo Girl and her family to stay. One evening her son, Mendez (ably assisted by his dad), cooked pizza for the kids for tea. In the discussion on dessert, there was a bid for dessert pizza. A new concept to both families but dreamt up by the children as the ideal follow-up to normal pizzas.
So I noodled about the internet a bit and we came up with the following recipe:
Basically, you make a normal pizza dough, top it with melted butter and sugar before putting it in the oven. Then add sweeties and ice-cream sauce before serving. If you were feeling healthy, you could top it with sliced banana, apple (slightly precooked), pear or peach before cooking. We didn’t try that this time, though.
400g strong white bread flour
1 tspn salt
1 tablespoon olive olive
1 sachet easy blend yeast
(Or just use a bit of left over dough from your main pizzas – these don’t need to be that big)
Mix dough ingredients with warm water to make soft dough. Knead for about ten minutes. Leave in a warm place to rise for an hour or so. Then roll into 3 normal size pizzas, although dessert pizzas are probably better about half that size ie you could make about 6 from this recipe. Place on a greased baking sheet, or one topped with baking paper (I use those reusable sheets).
Brush with melted butter and sprinkle sugar over. Place in oven at around 240°C for 10-15 minutes.
Once out of the oven, add sweeties and sauce. Eat and enjoy.
