Usually, pizzas are a savory affair. Pepperoni and mushrooms, sausage and peppers, and prosciutto and arugula are all classic topping combinations – not to mention cheese, and lots of it, please. But now chefs are putting sweet spins on them to create desserts that give new meaning to the phrase pizza pie. Goodbye, meats and veggies. Hello, marshmallows, Nutella, and fruit! Live the dream of eating pizza for dessert (which is almost as good pizza for breakfast) with these seven sweet slices that will blow your mind.
Bar Toma, Chicago. Illinois
Made with Nutella (because Nutella), cinnamon-y graham cracker crumble, and freshly toasted marshmallows, this pizza evokes the s’mores of your summertime memories, campfire not included. This, of course, means your clothes won’t smell like smoke and ashes at the end of the evening. Now that’s sweet!
Pizzeria Libretto, Toronto, Canada
Chef Rocco Agostino loves blueberries. So he dapples this limited-edition dessert pizza with the tart ‘n’ sweet blue beauties along with mascarpone, lemon sugar, honey, and fresh mint. Call it a slice of summer anytime.
Filini Restaurant and Bar, Chicago, Illinois
Nutella has the power to make everything taste better – even pizza. Chef Carolina Diaz slathers the chocolaty-hazelnut-y spread on the crust then adds toasted almonds, marshmallows, and strawberries. A drizzle of balsamic vinegar finishes it off. Truly delizioso.
Nebo, Boston, Massachusetts
Oh. Yeah. The Christoforo is crisscrossed with Nutella, topped with crushed hazelnuts, and finished off with a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Sounds like our kind of threesome. #menageachomp
