I never thought I would have posted a dessert pizza before a savoury pizza, but when the idea came to mind I got super excited. Of course, I don’t think I could have a food blog and not post a pizza recipe. However let’s be honest, there is no reason why you can’t google a classic margarita or pepperoni pizza. Which is why I don’t just want to upload a pizza recipe, but a pizza recipe that offers and inspires new ideas.
So I went with an easy, classic pizza dough in this recipe. For the toppings I wanted to have different elements of not just sweet, but also sour and fruity without overload the pizza. In fact, I think that should be the case with almost every pizza. In my opinion, you want to see and taste everything that is on the pizza, I think that less is more in that sense.
So whether you want to impress someone, or your having a super awesome pizza night or hell, you just want to make a frikin dessert pizza I hope this helps you. As always if you want to stay updated on new posts and recipes feel free to subscribe and/or follow my social media.

Dessert Pizza with Blueberry Crust
Chocolate, blueberry crust, strawberries, pears...This dessert pizza has it all!
- makes 1 pizza
- 1 Orange zested
- 25 g dark chocolate
- 25 g white chocolate
- 2 Canned/Jared pears in syrup cored and sliced.
- approx. 2 tblsp. Honey
- 1 Tsp. Vanilla extract
- 1 Tsp. Castor sugar
- Strawberries halved
- Pizza dough: Makes 1 pizza
- 125 g flour
- 80 g water
- Olive oil
- 5 g dry yeast
- A pinch of salt
- Pre-heat your oven to 210 degrees Celsius.
- Get your flour out on a clean surface and make a well with your hands.
- Add the yeast to your tepid water and stir around with a spoon.
- Pour the yeasty water in the well of your flour then add your pinch of salt and a drizzle of olive oil.
- Slowly bring the flour in with the spoon to bind it all together, then use the spoon to mix the dough around for a bit. Once the dough looks rough and is sticking to the spoon, set the spoon aside and get your hands in there.
- Move the dough around a bit bring everything together. Then sprinkle a bit of flour on the dough and on the surface to stop your dough from sticking so much.
- Next you want to knead the dough for about 5-10 minutes until it's smooth and elastic.
- Sprinkle a bit of flour inside a bowl, place the dough inside and then sprinkle a bit more flour on top. Cover the bowl with a damp cloth and set it aside in a relatively warm place to prove for about 45 minutes.
- Once the dough has proved and you can see it's risen. Then, dust your surface with flour and roll it out nice and thin. Then place it on a pizza tray or any other tray that will fit the pizza.
- Put your strawberries into a bowl, add the vanilla extract and castor sugar and then mix through.
- Place your blueberries neatly around the edge of your rolled out dough and then drizzle the honey over the blueberries. Gently roll the edge of the dough over the blueberries and firmly seal in.
- Get a brush and gently dab some of the syrup that came with the pears on the middle area of the pizza.
- Add your pears however you wish (you can make it look really neat and sexy or you can make it look more rustic). Put your dark and white chocolate into separate bowls. Then add half the orange zest and just a dash of juice from the orange to the dark chocolate. Melt both chocolates in the microwave and then drizzle over the pizza.
- Add your strawberries so they bubble and burst on top.
- Bake your pizza in the oven for about 10-15 minutes until the dough is cooked and golden on the sides and the pizza is bubbling on top. Sprinkle the rest of the orange zest on top for garnish and serve immediately. (You can serve a slice with a nice big spoonful of ice-cream on top).
Have a great day (:
