Chocolate Spread Dessert Pizza




Yum

I had a little bit of time of work and decided to treat the kids a little with this cook.
Nutella Desert Pizza


And what better way than combining every kids favourite food pizza with all the other things they love, like chocolate and marshmallows?

I started of by making a standard pizza dough which i use for most pizzas i cook.
I find there's no need to make a different one as the toppings are so sweet that making a sweet base would be overkill.

I weighed out my ingredients
No Need for any sweeteners for this dessert pizza!
Pizza Dough ingredients


With the flour already in the bowl you add the yeast and the salt and stir it to ensure its mixed in well

Next make a well in the centre and pour in the water and the olive oil and stir with a wooden spoon untill it all comes together to form a wet dough
Lightly flour a surface for kneading on and turn out the dough onto it.
Now knead the dough for around 5 minutes until it becomes smooth then i lightly coated a bowl with olive oil and put the dough in, covered with a clean towel and set it aside for an hour or so while i set up the grill for the cook.

Once the grill had held at around 350-400c (650-750f approx) i rolled out the dough into a pizza-ish shape ready for the toppings!

I let the kids join in with this bit so they decided what the toppings were.
We started with our "pizza sauce" which was the Nutella spread.
Next they decided to put the marshmallows.
No pepperoni on this pizza but it needed something to fill the gaps so i sliced up strawberries and banana and the kids laid them on as if they were the pepperoni.

Now i took the pizza out to the grill and cooked it for around 6 to 7 mins.
I was aiming for the base to be browned and the marshmallows to melt into the chocolate spread but still char a little on top to give that crunch as tho they had been roasted on a campfire.

Yum!
The finished Desert Pizza!


I knew the kids would love it but it turned out a little better than i'd expected, the juice from the strawberries mixed with the melting marshmallows and came together to give a jam like taste that was awesome with the chocolate and ended up adding another flavour the kids loved to the pizza!

This would work just as well in the oven as it would on the kamado but id suggest precooking the pizza base before adding the toppings then return to the oven just long enough to melt the marshmallows.
