Next, we will add our plant-based cream into a pot, bringing it to a near boil (once a couple of bubbles burst ), and remove it from the heat.

Now that the cream it’s been heated, we will add the chopped chocolate into the pot and stir until it’s combined (it will turn into a creamy chocolate spreadable).

“Pizza crust”

Preheat the oven to 170C or 340 F for about 10 -15 minutes.

Next, we will take the gluten-free, vegan pizza crust, and with the help of a rolling pin, we will flatten the dough until reaching the desired shape (we did round pizzas).

Now, place the pizza crust into the oven and bake it for about 8 minutes (check that it starts to turn golden brown and hardens a bit).

If the pizza crust is still soft, place it back into the oven for an extra 5 minutes or until it becomes crunchy and hardens a bit.

Note: be careful not to bake it too long, or it will dry out.

FAQs

Can it be made ahead of time?

Yes, you can make it ahead of time. You can serve it straight away and enjoy the warmth from the pizza crust, or make earlier in the day and let it cool and enjoy it cold. It works both ways and they are equally delicious.

How should I store the Chocolate Pizza?

You should store the chocolate pizza in the fridge. It will last in the fridge for 3-4 days. If you want to eat it warm but are making it ahead of time, don’t add the toppings and place the pizza crust back in the oven for a few minutes to warm through.

Can I freeze the Chocolate Pizza after they are cooked?

Yes, you can freeze the pizza dough to use as and when you need to. The great thing is that you can pull out the dough and let it defrost and then you can use it as you want if you need a unique dessert or a lovely sweet snack the whole family can enjoy.
