Chocolate And Banana Pizza with Vanilla Icecream

"I recommend using a Pizza Chef benchtop pizza oven for this recipe but you could try it in a regular oven with a stone in the bottom if you like."


  • 200 g bitter chocolate buttons or shavings

  • 60 g butter

  • 100 ml cream

  • 50 g dough recipe below

  • 4 ripe not brown bananas

  • 0.5 lemon

  • 150 pure icing sugar

  • 1 l vanilla ice cream

  • Pizza Dough

  • 400 g strong flour

  • 100 g semolina

  • 375 ml water

  • 50 ml olive oil

  • 7.5 g yeast

  • 10 g salt


  • 1.

    Melt chocolate over double boiler or in microwave and stir in butter and cream.

  • 2.

    Pour into a small bowl and chill in the fridge for 2 hours or until set, then tip out and dice.

  • 3.

    Peel and slice banana, squeeze over lemon juice and toss.

  • 4.

    Roll out a 50g portion of dough, top with 4-6 small cubes of chocolate and spread with sliced banana.

  • 5.

    Bake in the Pizza Chef for 4-6 minutes (longer in a regular oven) then transfer to a plate.

  • 6.

    Roll one scoop of icecream in the icing sugar and drop on top of the hot pizza.

  • 7.

    Dust with more icing sugar and serve.

  • Pizza Dough:

  • 1.

    A good electric mixer (we used a Kitchen Aid) with a dough hook attachment is invaluable when it comes to making pizza dough, but if you’re feeling particularly strong you can use your hands instead.

  • 2.

    The dough won’t be as silky smooth though.

  • 3.

    Whisk water, oil and yeast together.

  • 4.

    Sift flour, semolina and salt together in a mixing bowl.

  • 5.

    With mixer on low and dough hook attached, add the wet ingredients all at once and then raise speed to high.

  • 6.

    Mix until you have a silky smooth dough; about 10 minutes.

  • 7.

    Leave to prove for as long as you can – overnight is ideal.
