Hello RKE readers, Danny here, finally making the time to contribute something. This is actually my latest experiment – a dessert pizza, or, as my youngest brother referred to it, a ‘Sweetza’; a much better name. I’ve had this idea floating around for a while, and finally had to do something with it, not really knowing how well it’d turn out but curiosity got the better of me. Using a pre-made base and some imagination, here’s what happpened.
1 pre-made base
One jar of mixed fruit jam (used just under half a jar, but you could use a little less if preferred)
Some white chocolate for grating
White chocolate ‘snowies’/’jazzles’
Half a banana, to be sliced
A handful of grapes, to be sliced
A packet of Fruit Pastilles
Started by covering the base with mixed fruit jam (which surely counts as 25,263 of your 5-a-day, right? Right?), then grating the white chocolate over it, as opposed to the more traditional tomato sauce and cheese, intentionally aiming for something that would look similar.
Then, slice half a banana, and coat each slice in a little toffee sauce when adding to the ‘pizza’.
Next, add the snowies/jazzles and sliced grapes, making sure to distribute evenly, and a few Fruit Pastilles. I used less of the latter than the other ingredients
Then, add more grated white chocolate, and if desired, a little more of whichever topping, as I did. Now it is ready to go into the oven, pre-heated at gas mark 6, roughly 10-12 minutes. Again this will come down to personal preference, but at least 10 minutes should do it, with monitoring.
The finished ‘pizza’. The misty parts are grape juice, which really tasted nice mixed in with the jam. I’ve yet to offer it around to friends (this will come next time), but it was enjoyed by my family, so a good start!
If this sounds appealing to you, but you’d like to use alternate ingredients, I’ll suggest marshmellows, coconut or other fruits. Either way, hope you enjoy!
Note: As the bases came in packs of two, I used the other to make a barbecue sauce-based chinese chicken, prawn and
babycorn pizza, which also turned out well!
