CHOCOLATE TOFFEE PIZZA

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup icing sugar
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup salted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
  • 3 tbsp icing sugar
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla
  • 2 butter toffee chocolate bars (39 g each), coarsely crushed
  • 2 tbsp chocolate syrup

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. To prepare crust, combine flour, 1/3 cup icing sugar, cocoa and salt in a bowl. Mixing by hand with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, add butter and stir until a soft dough forms.
  3. Shape dough into a ball. Using floured hands, press dough evenly onto an ungreased cookie sheet to form a 10 inch round.
  4. Bake until firm, about 15 - 17 minutes. Cool crust completely on cookie sheet on a rack.
  5. Meanwhile, using medium speed of an electric mixer, beat cream, 3 tbsp icing sugar and vanilla until stiff.
  6. Spread whipped cream over crust. Sprinkle with crushed chocolate bars and drizzle with chocolate syrup. Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours. Cut into wedges.
