This fun take on a pizza is a great way to get kids involved with cooking while getting fruit into them.
Serves: 8 people
For the Base
100 g Dark Chocolate 70%
at least 70% cocoa solids, roughly chopped
3 tbsp Peanut Butter
almond butter or other nut butter
350 g SuperValu Medjool Dates
75 g SuperValu Porridge Oats
1 drop SuperValu Sunflower Oil
For the Topping
50 g Kiwi fruit
50 g Natural Yogurt
75 g SuperValu Blueberries
1 handfull SuperValu Fresh Mint
50 g SuperValu Mango
75 g SuperValu Raspberries
100 g SuperValu Ricotta
75 g SuperValu Strawberries
0.5 - SuperValu Vanilla Pod
or 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
This recipe makes 2 X 20cm pizzas.
- Grease the base of the 2 x 20cm round, loose-bottomed tins with sunflower oil and line with a disc of non-stick baking paper.
- Blend the dates in a food processor to make a fairly smooth paste. Add the chocolate, oats and peanut butter. Blitz everything together until you have a chunky paste.
- Divide the mixture evenly between the tins and press it down to make a smooth, level base. Cover with cling film and chill in the fridge for about 2 hours, until set firm. Alternatively, this will take half the time in the freezer. The base can be made up to a week in advance.
- Meanwhile, spoon the ricotta and yogurt into a medium bowl and whisk until smooth. Split the vanilla pod in half, scrape out the seeds and add them to the bowl. Alternatively, add the vanilla extract. Cover and pop in the fridge until ready to serve.
- Once the base is set and you're ready to serve, remove the bases from their tins, discarding the paper. Place on serving plates or boards and spread the ricotta yogurt evenly over the tops. Arrange your chosen fruit however you like on top, either in a fancy pattern or simply scattered over evenly. Scatter over the mint, if using. Cut into wedges and serve.
While this pizza might be full of wholesome ingredients, don't forget that it is still a dessert and should be enjoyed as a treat at the end of a hard week.
