Florence Moore, the Recipe Developer at recipe box company Gousto, has shared this delicious dessert pizza recipe to satisfy your sweet tooth and pizza craving... you know it's going to be good!
With just a few simple items, you can have a quick dessert pizza on the table in no time. Why spend all night making a ton of individual s’mores when you can just make one huge one and call it a day?
Here’s the recipe:
Serves 4-6 as a dessert
Cook Time: 45 minutes
200g strong white flour
7g sachet fast-action yeast
2 tbsp caster sugar
50g cream cheese
1 tbsp icing sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract
30g mini marshmallows
20g chocolate chips
2 tbsp chocolate sauce
Step 1: Preheat oven to 240ºC/ 220ºC (fan)/ 475ºF/ Gas 9. Heat a large baking tray in the oven (this stops soggy pizza bottoms!) Add the yeast to a large bowl with 100ml warm water and 2 tbsp sugar. Mix and set aside for 5-10 min.
Step 2: While the yeast develops, mix cream cheese with icing sugar and vanilla extract. Set aside.
Step 3: Add flour and semolina to the bowl with yeast mixture. Add up to 75ml warm water, a little at a time. Mix with a plastic spatula until a sticky dough ball has formed, then tip onto a floured work surface and half (no kneading needed!) Dust each dough ball in a light coating of flour.
Step 4: Press each dough ball in its centre and push outwards with your fingers. Leave the rim of the pizza untouched to form a crust (stick the dough back together if it rips). Dust with extra sprinkles of flour to stop it sticking. Your base needs to be slightly smaller than a side plate (they’ll grow in the pan).
Step 5: Heat large, dry, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) over a high-heat. Once hot, add the pizza base, pushing the dough to the edge to shape the crust. Pick up the pizza dough, gently flipping it over with the back of your hand to stop it ripping.
Step 6: Add 1/2 cream cheese to each pizza and spread evenly with the back of a spoon (be careful of the hot pan!). Cook for 3-4 min, or until the crust has started to puff. Remove the heated tray from the oven and slide onto the tray. Repeat for the next pizza base. (Avoid raw dough by making sure the pizzas don’t overlap on the tray).
Step 7: Drizzle crusts with olive oil and bake for 12-14 minutes until the crust is puffed and lightly golden. Carefully remove and spread Nutella over the cream cheese. Sprinkle marshmallows and bake for a further 1-2 minutes until the marshmallows are toasted. Remove from the oven and top with a decadent sprinkle of chocolate chips and a gooey drizzle of chocolate sauce.
