Here is another yummy pizza entirely unique from the regular savory ones. This is a dessert pizza with all the goodness of nuts and fruits. The pizza base is made with healthy nuts- walnuts, badam, dates etc and topped with fruits. You may use any nuts and fruits of your choice. This is a very simple and quick dessert made in 30 minutes.

Makes: 3

Preparation time: 30 mins

For pizza base

Dates – 2 (deseeded)

Walnuts – 4

Almonds – 10

Crackers/biscuits – 2 big (I used Marie gold biscuit)

Honey – 1 tsp

Vanilla essence – 2 drops

Other Ingredients

Frosting – 3 tbsp (Vanilla or chocolate, any of your choice) – I used store-bought

Walnuts, almonds, cranberry – 1 tbsp (for garnish)

Sapota/chickoo/sapodilla/zapota – 1 small (thinly sliced, you may use any fruit)

Grated coconut – 1 tsp (optional)

Procedure:

  1. To make the pizza base, blend together the walnuts, dates, almonds, biscuits under ‘for pizza base’ into a coarse powder.
  2. Add vanilla essence and honey to this and make 3 small balls.
  3. Press them slightly between your palms to shape them into cutlets.
  4. Grease an idly plate with butter or oil and place these cutlet shaped pizza bases one in each idly base.
  5. Refrigerate the idly plate for about 20-25 minutes.
  6. Remove from plate, spread the frosting on the base and top it with chickoo and nuts.
  7. You may also sprinkle coconut on the top.
  8. Mini pizza with a nutty and chocolaty twist is ready!!

Note:

  1. If the base falls apart while shaping them, add little bit of honey or dates and it will hold together. Alternately refrigerate it for 5 minutes and then shape them.
  2. The frosting need not be chocolate only. You may use any frosting. You may also use any glaze/peanut butter if you would like to.
  3. I had only chickoo at home, but you may use strawberry, watermelon, mango, apple, berries, whatever you have readily at home.
