A great dessert pizza with nutella, chocolate and marshmallows. A little different and definitely decadent.

This is one of the recipes I came up with after becoming curious about the whole concept of pizza as a dessert or snack. I like when you can take a concept that is well established and turn it around a bit to achieve something that is better. In this case, it means taking pizza and turning it into dessert. I also see this as a fun way to end an evening where you have been serving pizza and happen to have some leftover dough which can be used to experiment a bit with - let the guests fantasize a bit about what a good dessert pizza would have for toppings and try to get so close to their suggestions as possible. Who knows - maybe a magical taste combination will be created that way.

When I was searching the internet for pizza as dessert recipes, I came across this combination of nutella, chocolate and marshmallows. I thought the combination sounded really good, but I felt a little worried about having chocolate in such a hot oven without it burning. An alternative was to lower the heat in the oven, which was good for toppings, but the dough did not turn out very well. So I chose to cook only the dough in the oven for a while and then add the toppings and put everything in the oven for a short while just so that the chocolate started to melt and the marshmallows started to get a little color. However, it is still very easy to burn the chocolate so you have to make sure to pick out the pizza before it happens. If you have succeeded with the timing, you get a nice combination of flavors that could almost be classified as a pizza cake. I ate it cold the next day and it was really good.

However, I have chosen not to do this a lot after the initial tests. This is because it is very easy to burn the chocolate that I mention above and that some of the other varieties I tested at the same time were simply tastier. I also think that the toppings used here are better suited for an oven at a lower temperature and thus also a different pizza dough than the one I use. However, I can recommend the combination of flavors here and possibly also add banana slices as well.

Ingredients

Pizza

Directions

Preparations
  1. Prepare the pizza dough according to instructions in that recipe. The dough needs to rest in the fridge over night.
  2. Note! This recipe is only for one dessert pizza, but the dough is for 4 pizzas. The idea is that you make 3 normal pizzas and ends the feast with a dessert pizza.
Pizza
  1. Using one ball of pizza dough (1/4, about 213g) and create pizza bottom.
  2. Cook the pizza bread (yes - no toppings on it right now) in oven using a pizza stone/steel or a cast iron pan until semi-cooked.
  3. Take it out of the oven and spread nutella on it. Add chopped chocolate and put it back into the oven.
  4. Once the chocolate has melted (careful not to burn it), take it out of the oven and spread marshmallows on top. Put it back into the oven just to start melting the marshmellows.
  5. Serve immediately or eat cold.
