255g plain flour, plus extra for dusting

½ tsp salt

1 x 7.5g sachet easy-blend dried yeast

175ml tepid water

1 tsp honey

1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for oiling

6 tbsps nutella

300g mixed berries

100g white chocolate grated

A few mint sprigs, to serve

 

Large mixing bowl

Pizza stone or bbq (optional but give best results)

 

30 mins + proofing time
Serves 2

I love this surprisingly delicious dessert. Sweet pizzas are definitely the way forward, and you can use fresh or frozen berries here.

 

In a large bowl, combine the flour and salt. Whisk together the yeast, water and honey and allow to stand for a few minutes until frothy, then stir through the olive oil. Make a well in the flour and pour in the wet mix. Using your fingertips, slowly bring the flour in from the sides and continue to mix until a rough dough forms.
Turn out the dough on to a floured work surface and knead for about five minutes. If the dough is too sticky, add a little extra flour until it becomes smooth.
Form the dough into a ball and place in an oiled bowl. Cover with a damp tea towel or clingfilm and set aside in a warm spot for about 45 minutes, or until it has doubled in size. Punch the dough down on a lightly floured surface, then knead again for a minute and place back in the bowl to rise for a further 10 minutes.
Pre-heat a pizza stone on a hot barbecue for about 30 minutes or in the oven at 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6. Divide the dough into two large or 4 small pieces and roll out into rounds as thinly as possible.

TOP TIP

If you don't have a pizza stone, heat a baking tray in the oven instead.
Pop one of the bases on the pizza stone and spread the base with the nutella. Add the mixed berries and sprinkle with the grated white chocolate. Cover with a lid and bake the pizza on the barbecue for about eight minutes or until the crust becomes crisp.
Repeat with the remaining dough. Decorate with the mint sprigs and enjoy!

    Your ingredients list says that it makes two, yet the instructions say to divide the dough into three pieces. So, is it two or three pizzas from this recipe?

    I’ve got another question about this recipe. I find Nutella a bit too rich and sweet for my tastes, and was wondering if, instead, we could use a nice fresh white cheese of some sort instead…say a fromage frais, or ricotta or (my first choice) mascarpone. I was thinking even some soft quark with a bit of honey mixed in could be nice. Then, once out of the oven or barbecue, a bit of grated dark semi-sweet chocolate over the top. Do you think this would work. I do love the idea of a fruit pizza, but am loathe to use such expensive ingredients if the end result would be inedible. I reckon I could make a small ‘test pizza’ first, and at least I wouldn’t be wasting that much food if it didn’t work. Anyway, what do you think about this idea?
