A sweet twist to the savoury classic, these Triple Chocolate Marshmallow Pizza Pinwheels are delicious and great served as a dessert.
It was Italian week on the Great British Bake Off this week. I made some Pizza Pinwheels as part of my #GBBOBloggers2017 which is a bake along to the show linky that I host (inboxed case you did not know this!). Then I decided on a whim, to make an extra batch of dough and create some Triple Chocolate Marshmallow Pizza Pinwheels for dessert.
I have made a regular shaped pizza version of this dessert before, but thought that pinwheels were a bit more fun. Plus they would tie in with the savoury ones that were already being made. You do not need to change anything to the pizza dough for the sweet version. This is because you use exactly the same ingredients to make it.
It is the filling that makes it different of course. You can add any chocolate spread you like. I know that most recipes on the internet use Nutella, but my kids don’t like the nutty flavour of that. Besides, an awful lost of chocolate spreads, with or without nuts, have so much added sugar. Therefore, I like to use Jim jams because it has the least amount of sugar in.
You spread the chocolate spread onto your rolled out pizza dough, as you would the tomato sauce on a regular savoury pizza. You can add whatever sweet or chocolate topping you like ready, but for the purpose of this recipe I added mini marshmallows, Cadbury Caramel Buttons and some white chocolate.
Once covered with your toppings, or fillings as it will soon become, you roll the dough into a large sausage shape, and then cut off slices.
Then it is into a hot oven to cook for about 12-15 minutes. Now this is the first time I have made a pinwheel version of a chocolate pizza, and a lot of chocolate and marshmallow liquid did get left behind on the tray! Bit of a waste, but luckily there was still lots inside each pinwheel.
You can eat these as they are, warm or cold or you could be extra naughty and serve alongside some ice cream and fruit. Of course you could just add some fruit, if that eases your conscience slightly.
Here is the recipe for these Triple Chocolate Marshmallow Pinwheels
- *For the pizza dough*
- 500g strong white bread flour
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 x 7 g dried yeast sachet
- 1 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 325ml luke warm water
- *To make the dough*
- Place all of the ingredients into a large bowl - I use my mixer so I use that bowl (but you can of course make this by hand)
- Use the dough hook attachment and mix well to form a soft dough and let the hook knead the dough for about five minutes, until it is silky smooth and elastic.
- Transfer to a clean bowl that has been very lightly greased with oil, cover with a damp tea towel (or clingfilm) and leave to rise for about 1½ hours, until doubled in size.
- Once the dough has risen, knock it back, and scatter some flour onto a clean work surface and then split the dough into two halves
- *TO MAKE THE PINWHEELS*
- Pre heat the oven to 180oC / 160oC (fan)
- Roll out each of the pizza doughs into an oblong shape which is not too thin or too thick
- Spread your favourite chocolate spread over the base
- Add your toppings - I used mini marshmallows, Cadbury Caramel Buttons and some white chocolate squares
- Carefully, tuck in the smaller sides, and then roll into a long sausage shape ensuring that the fold is at the bottom.
- Repeat with the other dough half
- Using a knife, cut off slices approx 1-2 inches thick -you should get about 10 slices per dough
- Place onto a large baking tray/s
- Cook in the oven for approx 15 mins

Bake of the Week
Thank you to everyone who linked up with my Bake of the Week co-host Helen last week. There were some delicious bakes and we appreciate all of you who took the time to link up.
This weeks Bake of the Week is this one – so well done to Glutarama with her Delicious Mocha Walnut Slice; vegan and gluten free. The idea of a walnut flour to make the base sounds wonderful, and it looks so decadent for a dessert that is free from so many things.
