Serving Size

8-10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 (12) store-bought pizza crust
  • 1 cup (250 mL) bittersweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 1 cup (250 mL) Canadian Ricotta
  • 3/4 cup (180 mL) plain pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbsp (45 mL) flour
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) white chocolate chips

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).

2. Spread 1/2 cup (125 mL) of bittersweet chocolate chips on the pizza crust, and heat the crust in the oven for 2 minutes. Remove from the oven, and spread out melted chips with the back of a spoon.

3. Whisk together Ricotta, pumpkin purée, egg, flour, brown sugar, and spices. Spread out on a chocolaty pizza crust and bake for 15 minutes. Let cool.

4. Melt 1/2 cup (125 mL) of bittersweet chocolate chips. Transfer to a small plastic bag and cut off a corner. Gently squeeze the bag of chocolate to make a spiral shape on the Ricotta topping. Repeat with the white chocolate.

5. Using the tip of a knife, make lines in the melted chocolate spiral starting at the centre of the pizza and moving toward the edge. Space the lines roughly 2˝ (5 cm) apart (at the edge). To create a web shape, make new lines between the existing ones, moving from the outer edge toward the centre.

6. Garnish with fruit or insect-shaped jujubes.

Tips

  • Instead of Ricotta, try Canadian cream cheese or Mascarpone.
