S'more Pizza

7:54 AM

Saturday Night is here yet again! That means Pizza Night in our house. I really wanted my go-to white pizza for dinner, so for dessert tonight we made a dessert pizza! A few weeks ago I found a S'more Pizza, "Not Just For Kids" according to Guy Fieri, on Foodnetwork.com that sounded intriguing. I have never tried the chocolate/spicy combo yet, and I almost followed the recipe exactly, but I thought for my kids' sake I'd skip the cayenne and chili, at least this time.

I made my own dough instead of store bought, but since I'm still terrible at rolling a pizza into a nice round circle, I gave up and just went with the rectangle shape it seemed to wanted to do. One day I'll figure it out. While I was putting the pizza together, I thought it looked almost plain putting the marshmallows and chocolate (I used chips) straight on the crust, and I didn't have high hopes for this dish at all. Stuck it in the oven until the marshmallows got big and poofy, then followed up with the remaining ingredients. I cut everyone a slice, and still not expecting much from it, took a bite - MUCH better than I expected!! A million times better in fact! For some reason I thought it would be dry, but that was not the case! And the almonds sprinkled on top was the perfect touch! To be quite honest, I had two slices of pizza, despite my expected disappointment, and much to my diet's dismay. I am so happy with this dessert pizza that I will definitely make this over and over again! Next time, though, I will make it "not just for kids." ;)

S'more Pizza
Yields 2 pizzas

2 store-bought pizza doughs (or homemade)
1/2 cup bench flour
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup slivered almonds
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 sleeve graham crackers, crushed
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups mini marshmallows
2 bars dark chocolate

1. Preheat oven to 450˚.

2. Sprinkle flour on a work surface and roll out each piece of dough into a 12 to 14-inch round, 1/4-inch thick. Dust a pizza peel with cornmeal and slide onto the pizza stone. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until just beginning to brown.

3. While pizza crust is baking, toast almonds in a saute pan over medium-high heat. Remove almonds to a plate, and in the same pan, melt the butter. When butter is melted, add the graham cracker crumbs, chili powder, cayenne and salt. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

4. Remove pizza from oven and top with half of the marshmallows, randomly place 1 bar of chocolate over marshmallows and return to the oven, 3 to 5 minutes or until marshmallows are puffed and lightly browned. Remove pizza from oven, sprinkle with half of the graham cracker mixture and top with half of the toasted slivered almonds. Repeat for the second pizza. Let the pizzas rest for 3 to 4 minutes, then slice and serve.
