Recipe Rundown

pizza with honey and powdered sugar

The other day, I developed this awesome thin crust pizza dough recipe, and decided to finish off the dough dessert style. You guys are going to love this dessert pizza. It’s so easy to make, and it just screams of love and spontaneity.

What Makes This a Dessert Pizza:

This pizza dough gets smeared and baked with honey then dusted with powdered sugar. For an even sprinkle of powdered sugar, I like to do this part with a strainer.

It tastes as good as it looks: chewy, crispy, and sticky – equal parts sweet and savory. Actually, you could think of this as a backdrop for chicken (like chicken and waffles). Find out how to cook juicy, crispy chicken thighs right here.

As you can see, I made 1 giant pizza, but you could just bake individual size pizzas until you run out of dough. I’m actually picturing this as a really fun dessert for a party because it’s novel and, come on, who doesn’t love a powdered sugar dusted yeasty dessert?

Let me know what you think…

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 450°F. Use floured hands to shape the dough over a piece of parchment paper. Let rest for 15 minutes to develop some air bubbles.
  • Add spoonfuls of honey around the dough, but avoid placing it too close to the edges. It will spread out a lot as it bakes. Transfer to a pizza stone if you have one (or bake on top of a sheet pan) on the middle rack: 9 minutes.
  • Remove and top with a dusting of powdered sugar. Cut and serve hot.

Notes

Pizza Crust:
You can use any pizza dough for this recipe. This thin crust pizza post includes a dough that works well for a dessert pizza because it gets nice and crispy. For best results, use the dough within a 24 hour period. Any later and the yeast will over ferment and the pizza will be too dense.
Baking:
For best results, always preheat a pizza stone on the middle rack at least 30 minutes out. You can set your oven to 500 or 450 and bake for 9 minutes. Make your pizzas small enough to make it easier to transfer in and out of the oven on a pizza peel. If you don’t have a peel, make them super small and use a spatula.
