Web's Best Recipe Chocolate Pizza

recipe chocolate pizza Tasty, eye-appealing and easy to make, recipe chocolate pizza is a hit with the little kids and the "big kids" too.

Is chocolate pizza a cookie, a candy or a dessert? Who knows? It can be anything you want to call it.

This page contains recipes for three variations on chocolate pizza: basic chocolate pizza is similar to a big cookie; Christmas pizza could be considered candy, and Chocolate Tiramisu pizza is an excellent dessert pizza.

Trivia: Seventeenth century Londoners visited chocolate houses where bitter chocolate was served as a hangover cure. Don't try this at home, folks. It doesn't work!

Chocolate.com
Chocolate.com carries the top quality, gourmet chocolate that can be difficult to find locally.

As always, I suggest you do yourself a big favor and use the best quality chocolate you can find or afford. It really does make a difference. You can order outstanding, premier cocoa, chocolate chips and baking chocolates at Chocolate.com.

Recipe Chocolate Pizza #1 : Basic

Cookie Dough
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (first amount)
1/2 cups butter or shortening (first amount)
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp baking powder

Glaze
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (second amount)
2 tbsp butter or shortening (second amount)
2 tbsp water
candy for decoration

Tip:For best results, use a good double boiler with even bottom heating for melting the chocolate for your recipe chocolate pizza. I recommend one like the Farberware Classic 2-Qt. Covered Double Boiler.

In your double boiler, melt 1 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup shortening over hot water. Cool. Stir in flour, sugar, eggs and baking powder. Mix well. Spread evenly onto well-greased 12 inch pizza pan. Bake in preheated 375 oven for 15 minutes. Cool.

Combine 3/4 cup chocolate chips, 2 tbsp butter and 2 tbsp water. Stir. Spread glaze evenly over cooled chocolate pizza. Decorate recipe chocolate pizza with candies, as desired.

Tip: For variation, top recipe chocolate pizza with dried cranberries, pecans, or white chocolate chips.

Recipe Chocolate Pizza #2 : Christmas Pizza

8 oz white chocolate -- divided
8 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup salted peanuts
1/2 cup mini marshmallows
1/2 cup rice crispy cereal
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup red and green candied cherries

In top of double boiler, melt 6 ounces white chocolate and the chocolate chips. Stir in peanuts, marshmallows and cereal. Pour onto a greased 10-inch pizza pan and spread evenly. Sprinkle with coconut. Place cherries on top. Melt remaining white chocolate and drizzle over your chocolate pizza. Chill.

Recipe Chocolate Pizza #3 : Tiramisu Dessert Pizza

1 baked pizza shell
12 oz Mascarpone cheese
1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup brewed Espresso, cooled
unsweetened cocoa powder
confectioner's sugar
fresh raspberries or strawberries for garnish

cover Using your food processor, whip the mascarpone cheese and confectioners' sugar until smooth and creamy.(The Cuisinart DLC-2014 PowerPrep Plus 14-Cup Capacity Food Processor, White is the processor that serious cooks call their dream machine.)

Beat in the espresso until mixture is creamy and easy to spread. Add a bit more expresso if mixture is too stiff.

Spread the tiramisu filling over baked pizza shell. Create a dappled effect by first dusting the cheese liberally with cocoa powder, followed by a very light dusting of confectioners' sugar. Arrange fresh fruit around the edges of recipe chocolate pizza to garnish.
