Wow! A pizza... but made with chocolate! This might just be my daughter's favourite food. It's vegan and makes a fab weekend treat. You can also make mini pizzas as an easy and fun dessert.

MAKES 8 PORTIONS

  • 1 quantity pizza dough (see below)
  • 200 g dark chocolate
  • 5 tbsp non-dairy cream
  • 250 g soft fruit of your choice (strawberries, raspberries, redcurrants, blueberries, blackberries, etc.), washed and cut up if necessary

Roll out the dough on parchment paper. Prick the surface with a fork. Bake blind for 10 minutes at 180°C (Gas mark 4), uncovered and without ‘baking beans’. Leave to cool. Melt the chocolate in a bainmarie and then add the cream, a spoonful at a time, to make the ganache. Turn the pizza over and spread the ganache over it. Cut into 8 portions. Arrange the fruit on the pizza portions.

Pizza Dough

MAKES 2 PIZZAS FOR 4 PEOPLE

  • 600 g plain flour
  • 400 ml warm water
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 ½ sachets dried baker’s yeast (approx 14 g)
  • 1 tsp light brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp olive oil

Put the flour in a large mixing bowl. Mix the warm water with the salt, the yeast and the sugar in a bowl. Leave to stand for 10 minutes for the yeast to activate. Mix with the flour and knead for 5 minutes. Add the olive oil and knead for a further 5 minutes. Shape into a large ball and leave to rest in a bowl, covered with a damp tea towel at 20º-25ºC for 1-2 hours. Flour the work surface and a rolling pin. Divide the dough into two halves and shape into 2 balls. Roll them out to make the 2 pizza bases. Pizza dough freezes well. Shape it into a ball and freeze in an airtight freezer bag. Thaw at room temperature.

IDEA: This fun and easy recipe is great for teaching children to cook. You can make mini pizzas in the same way, or change the topping and make a pizza with yellow fruit (peaches, mango, apricots, etc.) or winter fruit (oranges, bananas, kiwi, etc.).
