Tasty Tuesday - S'mores Pizza!

Hey Chicago peeps - do you and your kids like theater? A chance to win tickets to The Emperor's New Clothes from the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre here.

***

I have to apologize in advance to you all. I'm sorry. I'm really and truly sorry.

My family went to Peel Wood Fired Pizza in St. Louis, and it was good. The whole experience was great (ok, except for the wait with small children - but that only proves how popular it is, and so not their fault). We had some really yummy pizza, and my family requested that I replicate it when we got home.

So this evening, I pulled this out of the cabinet.


Any guesses what I'm making?

S'Mores Pizza

Ingredients:
(note - this is my regular pizza dough and is enough for regular pizzas and then dessert pizza at the end. I make three small/medium pizzas for the four of us and then one ~8 inch pizza for the dessert one)

1 c water, warm but not too hot
1 T yeast
1 T oil
1/2 t sugar
1/2 t salt
3 c flour (this will vary each recipe, sometimes more and sometimes less)
1/2 c Nutella
2 graham crackers, broken into large pieces
1 T honey (leave it in the bottle)
1 c marshmallows


Directions:
Place the water into your stand mixer bowl (or if you're not lucky, into a regular bowl, but then be prepared to do lots of kneading). Add the yeast and oil. Add 1 1/2 c of the flour, and mix well. Add the salt and stir again. Start adding flour by the 1/2 cup. Mix well with each addition, kneading (or using the dough hook on the stand mixer) to thoroughly combine before adding more.

Once the flour is all incorporated and it's kneaded well such that it feels smooth to the touch (not tacky and not dry - adjust water and flour as needed there), let it sit. You'll want to knead with the dough hook prior to that for 7-10 minutes or by hand for up to 20. Place a damp towel over the top of the bowl while it rises for an hour.

Gently separate out the dough you want to use. As I mentioned, I use the dough to make other pizzas for dinner, first, leaving a little over a fist-sized amount for this one.

Lightly flour your surface, and roll out your dough into a round, turning it as needed. Use a spatula to spread the Nutella into a thin layer on the dough.

Have children break the graham crackers into large chunks if you trust them - or do it yourself if you don't want them crushed into granules. Sprinkle half the graham crackers lightly over the crust, then drizzle it all with honey.



(Yes, these graham crackers were way too small and too much, but the wee ones had a blast helping me with this. The only problem they created is that the granules made it such that the marshmallows didn't stick into the Nutella too well!)

Place the pizza on your grill on a pizza stone (if it's hot and summer and you don't want to turn on the oven - otherwise, back this at 475 degrees). Add the marshmallows and remaining graham crackers, and gently press into the Nutella and honey.


Bake it for 7-10 minutes, until the marshmallows are golden brown and all melty. Remove from the oven and cut into pieces. You'll want to eat this immediately, as marshmallows just aren't good once they cool off and get hard.



No, we have no leftovers. Just be happy I have pics at all! Enjoy this and more with Tempt My Tummy Tuesday and Blessed With Grace.

So this isn't for dinner, right? Because if it IS for dinner, and my family finds out, guess who's going to be standing on your front porch around 5 p.m. tomorrow night. lol.

That is just not RIGHT I just have to make it now. Crap I don't think I can make this and make it to the neighbors house. I may eat it all! UGH

Did I really need to know that this scrumptiousness exists?

Just wanted to start licking the screen!! I absolutely love Nutella! I hate having it in the house though as it seems to disappear too fast. YUM!

Hyacynth - Sorry, it was dinner last night. It's all gone now, but my husband has requested it in place of birthday cake this year....

Alexis - It's pretty good, and hey, I did apologize at the beginning, didn't I?

Unknown Mami - You needed to know about as much as I did, I think. Again, I did apologize!

Sherry - I'm with you on Nutella. I'm so glad it's available in the States now. And uhhh Costco carries a big two pack of it. That might keep it in house longer? ;)

Steph - Yeah... it was good. I think your girls would like it, too. Although the Nutella does have dairy :(
