Recipe Details

Story

When Chef Michelle turns our favorite food into dessert, we say, “Yas, queen!” Pizzas are sweetly reinvented with a creamy “sauce” made of melted white chocolate and rich ricotta cheese. Lemony blueberry compote is subtly sweet and tart, making it the ideal topping for these perfect little treats.

    Cooking Steps

    1. Melt Chocolate

      Melt Chocolate

      Preheat oven to 425°F. Place white chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl and microwave in 30-second intervals until melted. Alternatively, create a double boiler: Bring 2-inches water to a boil in a medium pot over high heat. Place bowl with chocolate over pot and stir until chocolate is melted and smooth, 2-4 minutes. In a small bowl, whisk water and egg.
    2. Roll Out Dough

      Roll Out Dough

      Dab canola oil onto a clean dry surface. Halve pizza dough. Using a rolling pin or the heels of your hands, roll and stretch dough pieces to about ⅛-inch thickness. Carefully transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Using a fork, poke holes all over surface and brush dough with egg wash. Transfer to oven and bake until becoming crisp, about 12 minutes.
    3. Prepare Ingredients

      Prepare Ingredients

      While pizza crust bakes, halve lemon. Rinse mint and finely chop leaves, discarding stems. Slowly add ricotta to bowl with melted chocolate, stirring continuously until fully combined.
    4. Make Blueberry Compote

      Make Blueberry Compote

      Place sugar and blueberries in a small pot over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and cook, breaking up with the back of a spoon, until blueberries begin to break down and mixture is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove pot from heat and stir in 1 squeeze lemon juice. Set aside to rest for 2-3 minutes. Use remaining lemon to brighten a glass of water.
    5. Assemble and Bake Pizzas

      Assemble and Bake Pizzas

      Spread chocolate-ricotta mixture over each baked pizza, leaving a ½-inch border. Return pizzas to oven and bake until topping is warmed through, about 5 minutes.
    6. Plate Pizzas
