BARBECUED SWEET PIZZA RECIPE
Recipe by Genenieve Taylor (Napoleon Ambassador)
Barbecues aren’t usually associated with desserts (or baking, for that matter!), but you can actually end off your party on a sweet note with this simple and customizable recipe! This recipe is activity for parties and to do with kids – get kids and guests involved in designing their own dessert pizzas with all kinds of ingredients which they can get creative with.
You might not be able to get all these ingredients in Singapore but that’s Okay. Try it with different seasonal fruits available in your local market (like durian or mango!) or make a kaya pizza – sky’s the limit!
P.S. If you’re not confident about placing the pizza dough directly on the grills, try using a pizza stone and pizza spatula!
50g Diced butter
1 tsp. Instant yeast
300 ml Warm water
2 tbsp. Runny honey
3 tsp. Ricotta
2 to 3 cups Water
12 fresh Raspberries
3 tsp. Mascarpone
a handful mini Marshmallows
1 tbsp. chopped Hazelnuts
Add the bread flour, yeast and diced butter to a mixing bowl - stir well until combined. Gradually pour in the warm water, mixing as you go to bring it together as a rough ball. Tip onto a lightly floured worktop and knead together for a good 10 minutes until you have a smooth elastic ball of dough
Place into a lightly oiled, clean bowl and cover with a clean tea towel or cling film. Leave to rise for an hour
Fire up the burners on the barbecue to a high heat and leave to get to temperature whilst you shape the dough. Have all your fillings prepared and ready in bowls by the barbecue so they are ready to go - this is a really quick recipe once you get cooking
Lightly oil a baking sheet and tip the dough onto it. Knock down the dough and use a knife or dough cutter to cut into 8 even sized pieces
Once the grill bars are really hot (about 10 minutes), you can start to cook the pizza
Take a ball of dough and roll it out on the oiled surface to a circle about 15cm. Lay directly on the grill bars and leave to cook for a couple of minutes. You can roll out another ball of dough and start cooking it but don’t try and cook more than 2 at a time as they cook so quickly it’s better to cook in batches
Once the pizza base is crisp remove it to a plate or board and turn it over so its cooked side up. Spread your chosen fillings out onto the cooked side - try not to overload or it will become unwieldy and there will be a danger of the fillings oozing off the base and burning on the grill
Slide the pizza back onto the grill bars using a fish slice and shut the lid of the barbecue. Leave to cook for another minute or two, just enough time for the toppings to melt and heat up
Slide onto a plate and leave to cool for a minute or so before eating!
