For most of us, pizza means one thing: a round disk of dough topped with tomato, mozzarella and other goodies that are baked in a hot oven. It’s just one of those comfort foods that are almost always a popular choice. While pizza is mostly known as a main dish, it can be prepared differently and enjoyed as a dessert too.
That’s what Ricciotti Pizza, Pasta and Deli, an Italian deli, does to give diners who want a little something sweet a treat. The restaurant put a sweet twist to pizza and came up with a variety of great-tasting sweet pizzas, also known as Dolce Pizzas. They include Nutella, Strawberry (Fragole), Apple (Mela), Orange (Arancia), Cinnamon (Cannella) and Fruits (Frutta).
My personal favourite is the Cannella pizza ($13.90). Sweet mascarpone cheese mixed with cinnamon sugar and sprinkled with raisins atop a thin pizza dough base. This pizza tasted terrific! The texture and flavour seemed to blend really well.
If you are a fan of Nutella, I promise you won’t be disappointed with their Nutella pizza ($11.90). It comes with a generous spread of Nutella over freshly baked pizza crust and a sprinkle of chopped hazelnuts.
Ricciotti also came up with a few fruit pizzas for those who prefer a healthier dessert. Of all the fruit pizzas, I like the Frutta pizza ($14.90) the most. Topped with fresh mixed fruits with glaze and chocholate shavings, it’s both refreshing and light.
All the sweet pizzas are freshly made daily with less sugar and no artificial colouring or flavouring. Even the jam used is homemade. These 9-inch pizzas are big enough to feed two to three people.
Can’t wait to sink your teeth into a sweet pizza? Now’s the time to go, as Ricciotti is having a Sweet Pizza Promotion where all sweet pizzas go for $9.90, from 1st – 31st July 2011 only.
