Since in my opinion dessert is always mandatory and you need one, even for a BBQ. There aren’t that many sweets that work well on a grill, at least I can’t think of that many. But pizza works and sweet pizza works even better. I enhanced a classic pizza dough with some sugar and then simply added some apricot slices and a yummy chocolaty sauce. It’s a very simple idea that is just delicious and will make you the hero at any BBQ party.

Makes 4 small pizzas

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of bread flour + some extra
  • 2 tbsp of raw cane sugar
  • 1/2 package of active dry yeast
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 3/4 of warm water
  • 10-12 apricots
  • 2-3 tbsp of raw cane sugar
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tsp of tapioca starch

for the chocolate sauce:

  • 2 tbsp of almond butter
  • 2 tbsp of cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp of agave nectar
  • optionally some oat milk to thin out the sauce

Method:

  1. In a large bowl place the flour and the sugar and mix well. In a small bowl whisk the active dry yeast in with 2 tbsp of the warm water until they yeast has dissolved. Let it sit for 10 mins.
  2. Now add the olive oil, yeast mix and the remaining warm water to the large bowl with the flour. Bring everything together with your hands then place on a floured surface and start kneading for about 10 mins. Work in some more flour until the dough has a soft a stretchy consistency.
  3. Dust your bowl with some flour and cover with a damp kitchen towel, now let the dough rise in a warm place for about 2 hours.
  4. Towards the end of the 2 hours, slice the apricots into relatively thin slices and place in a bowl, first cover with the lemon juice and then with the tapioca starch.
  5. After the dough has risen, punch it down and divide into 4 pieces, roll it out into 4 disks.
  6. Place the apricot slices onto the dough, slightly pressing them in. Now sprinkle with the sugar.
  7. Place on the grill, either on the grid or ideally on a hot pizza stone and grill for about 10-12 minutes.
  8. In the meantime whisk together all of the ingredients for the sauce and then drizzle over the hot pizzas and serve!
