I had to go to the local shop today as I had been too disorganised to arrange for our shopping to be delivered yesterday and we had nothing in the cupboards that I could make quickly. Loath to spend the higher prices compared to the supermarket shop I always head for the bargain shelves. And there, for only 45p each were three packs of the ready rolled puff pastry. So for £1.35 plus some other random ingredients like cheese and ketchup that are already in the house I figured I’d just find the kids some fruit for dessert and we were set.
My kids on the other hand had a different idea!
A few years ago, we’d had a takeaway menu pushed through the letterbox for a pizza place that had opened (and since closed without us ever ordering from them). One of their pizzas was a sweet pizza with m&m’s and skittles and some other random sweeties. *Apparently* at the time I had promised my darling children that we would make one “soon” and being as we didn’t really need three boring cheese, hotdog sausage and sweetcorn pizzas why couldn’t we make a dessert one now? Thus allowing me to finally fulfil my promise as every good parent should!
Well they made a compelling argument and I told them if they found enough stuff to go on it we would give it a go. Here is our result:
What did we eventually end up with as toppings after a rummage through the cupboards full of half empty packets?
condensed milk (for the sauce)
- grated marzipan
- chocolate chips
- sliced snickers bars
- grated banana(because I had to spoil it with something healthy)
- marshmallow fluff
- raspberry jam
It tasted lovely, the kids were trying to eat it before it had even cooled down! I think next time I would use a tart jam as the sauce to break up the full on sweetness, or add some sour candy. Win for me though, the banana was an all round favourite. The only one who may complain is Dadi, he’s not that fussy on pizza anyway and doesn’t have that much of a sweet tooth. Shame, I’ll just have to eat his slice too 🙂
Two courses for only £1.35 out of my pocket and I got to use up some leftover bits, not bad if I say so myself!
Have you ever made pizza for dessert? Did you like it? I’d love to hear some different recipes.
