Chocolate Chip Dessert Pizza is, in my humble opinion, the best kind of pizza ever made. With a simple thin crust, a cream cheese based “white pizza sauce”.
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour (185g)
▢½ teaspoon instant yeast
▢¼ teaspoon salt
▢⅔ cup warm water (155ml)
▢8 oz cream cheese (225g)
▢¼ cup sugar (50g)
▢1 teaspoon vanilla extract
▢1 cup mini chocolate chips (175g)
▢3 Tablespoons butter melted
▢¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
▢⅓ cup + 1 Tablespoon all-purpose flour (50g)
▢⅓ cup sugar (66g)
▢2 Tablespoons brown sugar tightly packed
Preheat oven to 500F (260C) and line a pizza pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine flour, yeast, and salt and stir well.
Add water and stir until ingredients are mostly combined. Use your hands to continue to combine until the dough is cohesive enough to form a ball.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 minutes (until elastic). If needed, add additional flour 1 Tablespoon at a time if dough is too sticky and sticks stubbornly to your hands.
Roll dough out into a 12” circle and transfer to prepared pizza pan. Pinch edges or gently fold over to form a crust.
Prepare your cream cheese “sauce” by cutting your cream cheese into 8 pieces and place in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 10 second intervals, stirring between each, until cream cheese is easy to stir.
Add sugar and vanilla extract, stir well.
Spread cream cheese “sauce” evenly over pizza dough.
Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly overtop and press/spread into the “sauce”. Prepare your streusel
