Ingredients

  • ½ pizza dough, ready to be stretched 250-275 grams of pizza dough; I use my mom's recipe.
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 3 cups fruits cut up, variety of seasonal fruits
  • ⅓-½ cup chocolate spread commercial or homemade, warmed up in the microwave
  • extra chocolate for drizzling
  • fresh mint for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C)
  • Brush about 1 teaspoon of room temperature butter at the bottom of a pizza pan. Don’t forget to also grease the sides.
  • Transfer the ball of dough to the pizza pan.
  • With lightly oiled fingertips, gently stretch out the pizza ball into a 10-12 inch circle.
  • Bake the pizza in the preheated oven (400 °F/200 °C) for about 15 minutes. Bake the crust until it is firm and the bottom turns a light golden brown.
  • When the pizza is ready. remove from the oven and place on a rack to cool off. This should take just a few minutes.
  • Then, spread a thin layer of chocolate spread (⅓-½ cup). The minimal residual heat from the pizza should make it easy to spread the chocolate. 
  • With a pizza cutter, cut the pizza into 6 wedges, while still keeping its round shape.
  • Place cut up fruit over the chocolate glazed pizza. 
  • If desired, drizzle with a little more chocolate and garnish with mint leaves.

Notes

  • Prep time DOES NOT include proofing time for the pizza dough. Please plan accordingly.
  • Quantities for the ingredients are for 1 (10-12 inch) pizza
  • Do not over bake the pizza crust as it will crack when attempting to slice it.
