Chocolate pizza is a type of pizza prepared using chocolate as a primary ingredient.[1] Various styles and preparation techniques exist. Chocolate pizza may be prepared as a dessert dish, as a savory dish, and as chocolate molded in the form of a pizza. Some companies specialize in chocolate pizzas.

Preparation[edit]

Some chocolate pizzas incorporate chocolate into the pizza dough.[2][3] Chocolate pizza may be served as a sweet, dessert-style dish,[4][5] or as a savory dish that includes chocolate. Chocolate pizza may be prepared using cooking chocolate as a spread before baking in the oven. Another variety is the use of a hazelnut spread after the pizza is baked.[5] In recent years, chocolate pizza preparations have included icing sugar, banana, strawberries,[5] marshmallows,[5] sprinkles,[5] smarties, and white chocolate chips.

History[edit]

Chocolate pizza combines chocolate and pizza, two popular ingredients among school-aged children.[6] The confluence of pizza and chocolate developed in parallel in several Western countries and has become a dessert purveyed in franchise and chain restaurants.

Chocolate pizza is also known as a Valentine's Day,[7][8] Easter[9] and Christmas holiday[10] treat.[11]
