Dessert Pizza - 4 Ways
Have you ever tried a dessert pizza? As a pizza lover, it's the perfect dessert for any occasion. Since there are too many great options to choose from, I decided to show you my 4 favorite dessert pizza variations.
Servings: 2 8-inch (20cm) pizzas
- 2 tablespoon packed light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
- ½ cup Nutella
- Optional: toppings of your choice (strawberries fit well)
- ¼ cup sliced almonds
- ¼ cup honey
- ¼ cup soft goat cheese
- 2 fresh figs
- Optional: additional honey for serving
- ½ cup cream cheese, softened
- ¼ cup sugar
- ¼ cup mashed strawberries
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
- 1 cup milk chocolate candy bars, chopped
- Toppings of your choice: chocolate spread and fresh berries fit well
All ingredients are calculated to make two 8-inch (20cm) pizzas. So remember to split all of the toppings in half for both pizzas. I recommend preparing one pizza at a time. When the first one is in the oven, prepare the second.Also, the baking time depends on which dough you choose, how thick it is, and what equipment you use. If you use and follow my yeast pizza dough recipe, bake for 5-7 minutes when using a pizza steel and for 8-12 minutes when using a baking sheet. If you use storebought pizza dough, follow the directions on the package.
Preheat the oven and a baking sheet to 475°F / 250°C for 20-30 minutes. If you are baking with a pizza steel, preheat for 45-60 minutes.
If you have a pizza peel, sprinkle it generously with semolina and set it aside. Otherwise, sprinkle a piece of parchment paper with semolina and set aside.
Prepare the dough, divide it in half, and shape it to your preference. Then transfer to the pizza peel or parchment paper.
Sprinkle the almond slices evenly on the dough and drizzle with the honey. Then bake until the crust is baked through. Top the hot crust with dollops of goat cheese, fresh figs, and additional honey as you like.
Combine the cream cheese, sugar, mashed strawberries, and vanilla. Then, spread half of the mixture on top of the dough and bake until baked through. Spread the remaining cream cheese mixture on top of the hot crust and add the fresh strawberries.
* You can use either store-bought dough, homemade pizza dough, or sourdough pizza dough.
