Today I was a bit uninspired for dinner, as I have been for the past 3 weeks. I think I have cook's block because of the new, draining job I've just started. Instead of dreaming of baking goodies, I've been dreaming of working! Not very fun at all.
Anywho, tonight Mr. BB and I were to eat some lame-assed steakettes. I wasn't impressed at all, he jumps at the chance to eat mince but I really despise it. Solution? I made pizza's. They used up the steakettes and made me interested in eating them. This also inspired me to make a dessert pizza. I've been wanting to make one of these for about a year now. I first saw it on thisiswhyyourefat.com and then Giada from Everyday Italian made it- I thought it was funny how she made it as she is wafer thin.
This is my take on it as I didn't have any nutella in the fridge what wasn't a million years old and rock hard. I had used a regular 1/2 cooked pizza base, some left over dulce de leche as the 'sauce', chocolate chips as the 'topping' and finally marshmallows to represent the 'cheese'. Great combo.
I do recommend making this, but only a small one. After devouring the other pizzas for dinner I could barely stomach such a rich heavy dessert. We both barely got through 1 slice each.
Basic Pizza Dough
- 375ml warm water
- 1 sachet of dried yeast
- Pinch of castor sugar
- 600g (4 cups) of bread flour - plain flour is fine to use but I find that I get better results with the bread flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup olive oil, extra for brushing
Preheat oven to 190c.
Combine yeast, luke warm water and sugar in a small bowl. Set aside for 5 mins or until foaming.
Add flour and salt in a large bowl. Add foaming yeast and oil.
Kneed for 10 mins on a lightly floured surface and place into an oiled clean bowl. Set aside for 30 mins or until doubled in size. Cut into 3 pieces and roll out into circles. Pleat edges and brush with oil. Pre-bake for 10 minutes before adding toppings.
