No Superbowl party would be complete without pizza but this isn’t the pizza you might expect. There’s no delivery or box from the freezer here. This pizza has a crispy crust sweetened with date sugar and topped with a chocolate caramel sauce, fresh fruit and a dusting of shredded coconut.

Ingredients:

  • Whole grain pizza dough for a 15 inch pizza (recipe here)
  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 1 tbsp date sugar
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp grain sweetened chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tbsp skim milk
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup diced  fruit of your choice (I used strawberries, bananas, blueberries, pineapple, kiwi and blueberries)
  • 1 tbsp finely shredded unsweetened coconut

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Press the pizza dough into the pan. You want a very thin crust so you may not need all of the dough.

    Rub the dough with canola oil and sprinkle with date sugar before baking

  3. Rub canola oil evenly over the dough and sprinkle with the date sugar.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until the crust is crispy. Remove from the oven.

    Bring honey, milk and butter to a boil over low heat

  5. While the crust is baking make the caramel by placing the honey, milk and butter in a small sauce pan over low heat. Slowly bring to a boil stirring often. This needs to be done on low heat so the milk doesn’t curdle.
  6. Boil for about 5 minutes or until the caramel just starts to thicken.
  7. Turn off the heat and stir in the vanilla and sea salt.

    Stir in chocolate chips until the sauce is smooth

  8. Add the chocolate chips and stir to combine.
  9. Spread the chocolate mixture, reserving 2 tablespoons, evenly over the pizza crust.
  10. Top with fruit.
  11. Place the reserved chocolate sauce into a plastic storage bag (I use a freezer bag because it is thicker) and cut a very small piece off one corner. Squeeze the chocolate sauce down to the cut tip and drizzle the sauce over the fruit pieces.
  12. Top with the coconut, cut and serve.

      Be warned, it’s addictive. If you are a peanut butter fan you can skip the caramel sauce step and melt the chocolate chips with about a 1/4 cup of peanut butter for a different taste. Enjoy~Kristy
