My first dessert pizza
« on: December 12, 2010, 04:11:42 PM »
This is posted in other places, but it is a dessert pizza and it was very good, much better than I thought it would be, so I will post it here too.

This is my first ever dessert pizza.  It is a swirl of spicy cranberry sauce*, ricotta cheese, and chopped pecans.

The dough is a 70% hydration  80/20 AP/semolina dough room temp risen for 5 hours and cooked in a 550 kitchen oven on a pan.  I mixed some of the cranberry sauce 50/50 with ricotta cheese to make the lighter colored swirl, the areas under the pecans are straight cranberry.  I pie crusted the edge after pressing it out thin.  This was a 280g doughball normally used for a 12" pie pressed out to a 14" pie.  I do not eat much sweet stuff, but this was GOOD.


*Spicy cranberry sauce:

12oz fresh cranberries
2 cups water
1 cup sugar
2 clove flowers crushed
1 tbsp black pepper
2 tbsp crushed dried arbol peppers

All cooked down for an hour or 3 and hit with the stick blender.

Looks great.  Was it more sweet or more tangy?  :chef:

It was too sweet for me, and too spicy for the wife.  Next time it gets only the black pepper, no arboles.

Given the interest in dessert pizzas I hope in the future a challenge with that as a theme will be forth coming even if done before.
Warm regards, Don
