Dessert Pizza with Chocolate ‘Pepperoni’ + Baking a Difference Giveaway


  • For the chocolate pepperoni:
  • 10 ounces semisweet chocolate chips (vegan)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup chopped vanilla wafers (I found a box of vegan wafers at Whole Foods, but any vegan cookie will do!)
  • 1/4 cup almond milk or other non-dairy milk
  • For the crust:
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 packet Fleischmann’s Pizza CrustYeast
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2/3 cup warm water
  • For the raspberry sauce:
  • 2 cups raspberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 cup almond milk or other non dairy milk
  • For the icing:
  • 1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup almond milk or other non dairy milk


  1. For the chocolate pepperoni:
  2. Melt the chocolate with the almond milk in a medium microwave safe bowl for 20 second intervals until melted. Stir in the chopped vanilla wafers or cookies and walnuts. Place in the refrigerator for 4 hours. Scrape from bowl and roll into a log wrapped in parchment paper or plastic wrap, forming a log about 2 inches in diameter. Place in freezer and freeze until solid.
  3. For the dough:
  4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, stirring until a smooth dough ball is formed. Knead dough on a well floured work surface until it is smooth and elastic, about 4 minutes. Roll out dough into 12-14 inch round and place on greased pizza crisper or pizza stone. Bake for 5-7 minutes, or until dough is lightly browned.
  5. For the raspberry sauce:
  6. Combine raspberries and almond milk in the bowl of a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth. Set aside.
  7. For the icing:
  8. Combine powdered sugar and almond milk, whisk until smooth and combined. Set aside.
  9. To assemble the pizza:
  10. Spread the raspberry sauce evenly over the pre-baked pizza crust, top with slices of chocolate pepperoni and drizzle with powdered sugar frosting. Cut into wedges and serve.
