Easter Recipe – Spring Special Candy ‘Pizza’
Easter Recipe: Who doesn’t love pizza? Yes, I know pizza doesn’t scream Easter to anyone but who says you can’t tweak it and make it into a sweet spring celebration. Adults and children alike will fall in love with this inventive use of sugar cookie dough and Easter themed sweets.
If you’re in need of keeping the kids busy, just watch their faces light up as they see your kitchen worktops and drawers filled to over flowing with the tasty treats for them to use as decorations! On top of this, because you’ll be using a biscuit base, these slices of sweet heaven can be kept in an air tight contain, put back in the cupboard and will last for up to a week…as long as you can prevent over snacking!
For the base:
- 110g caster sugar
- 275g plain flour
- 225g butter
For the topping and decoration:
(This is where you can choose what to top it with, listed below is what we used in the photos. For a healthier option, why not try Greek yogurt instead of marshmallow and fresh fruit in place of sweets)
- 180g mini marshmallows
- 1 bag of MaltEaster Mini Bunnies
- 1 pack of Smarties Mini Eggs
- 1 pack of Dairy Milk Pebbles
- 1 pack of Cadbury’s Mini Eggs
- 1 pack of Rainbow Buttons
- 1 pack of Ice Cream Cones sweets
- 1 pack of Foam Banana sweets
- 1 pack of Wafer Daisies
For the Base:
- Preheat your oven to 180C.
- Cover a standard size pizza tray with tin foil. If you don’t have a pizza tray, you can use any shallow cake tin – just cover the base with tin foil.
- Cream the butter in a large bowl until soft and creamy. Add the sugar and beat together until well combined. The mixture should look fluffy and lighter in colour.
- Sift the flour and mix with a wooden spoon until it forms a dough.
- Roll the dough out on a clean, lightly floured worktop until it’s completely smooth.
- Press the dough into the prepared pizza tray or cake tin, pushing some of the dough up the sides about 1cm all the way round to form what will be the crust of the ‘pizza’.
- Place in the preheated oven for approximately 15 minutes.
- Remove from the oven when the biscuit dough has cooked and turned a medium brown colour. Turn off the oven.
- Cover the biscuit base with mini marshmallows and return to the oven for 1-2 minutes, or until you see all the marshmallows have fluffed up.
- Remove from the oven and let the decorating commence. This is the part where you can become exceptionally creative so go wild!
