    the80srule's Note:

    I love dessert pizza! I figured why not come up with my own? Something that's not too sweet and can even be halfway healthy, is exotic looking, and can be whipped up quickly for entertaining-- ie, looks impressive and complicated but isn't! I used Sun Crystals in the cheese mixture, and 2 of those Baker's semi-sweet chocolate squares for the topping. A 12" pizza pan is integral for this, a pie pan won't make it come out right because the dough needs to be very thin and crispy-- and best of all, requires NO rising! Prep time includes chill time which is approximate.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 8



    Units: US | Metric




    • 10 dried apricots, chopped into pieces (approx)
    • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate (two 1-oz baking squares)
    • 1/4 cup blanched slivered almond


    1. 1
      Proof the yeast in the warm water with the honey or sugar for 8-10 minutes or until foamy.
    2. 2
      Add the flours, oil, and salt and knead well, about 2-5 minutes.
    3. 3
      If the dough seems not elastic enough, dust your hands with some flour and knead again.
    4. 4
      Grease a pizza pan or pie pan with cooking spray, and roll the dough out onto it. I use a pizza roller for this to curl it up at the edges and make sure it's nice and flat and even in the middle.
    5. 5
      Poke holes in the dough with a fork and bake at 400F for 5 minutes.
    6. 6
      While it bakes, make the cheese mixture in a blender/food processor to give it a smooth consistency closer to ricotta cheese, and disperse the flavors. And cut the apricots, about 8-12 of them, into pieces. Also run your chocolate squares over a hand/box grater to get fine chocolate shavings.
    7. 7
      Extract the pizza pan from the oven and spread the cheese mixture evenly over it. Arrange the apricot pieces on the pizza evenly too.
    8. 8
      Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes or until the cheese mixture has thickened up, at least 20 minutes.
    9. 9
      Move the pizza onto a wire cooling rack and refridgerate for at least 30-45 minutes.
    10. 10
      After it has cooled, add the chocolate shavings and almond slices.
    11. 11
      Cut into 8 standard slices, or cross-wise into several pieces to have as little hor d'oevres.
