To make this recipe you need a Brioche dough. This classic French yeast dough is a very rich and buttery dough, and a cross between a pastry and bread.


Make your Brioche dough or use store bought dough. I made my own with this super simple Brioche dough recipe, but you can buy refrigerated Brioche dough or Shortcrust pastry.



Ingredients

Serves 6

  • 400g prepared Brioche dough or Shortcrust pastry

  • 20g butter, at room temperature

  • 100ml whipping (heavy) cream

  • 12 mint leaves (preserve 2-3 leaves to decorate)

  • 50g powdered sugar (icing sugar)

  • 2 tsp cocoa, unsweetened

  • 50g butter

  • 50g dark chocolate, chopped

  • 50g milk chocolate, chopped

  • 200g red currants

1. Make brioche dough: Find recipe here:


2. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).​ Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.


3. In small saucepan, bring to a boil the heavy cream and mint leaves. Pour it through a strainer to remove the mint leaves. Set aside and let cool.


​4. Meanwhile, on lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 4 mm (1/4-inch) thickness, giving it an oval or round shape.


5. Transfer the dough to baking sheet. Sprinkle the dough with powdered (icing) sugar, cocoa powder and place dots of butter over the dough. Set aside for 20 min at room temperature.


6. Bake for about 10 minutes. Remove the pizza from the oven and sprinkle with the mint flavored cream. Place in the oven and cook for a further 10 min, until the crust is baked, golden brown.


7. Remove the pizza from the oven and sprinkle with the chopped chocolate. Bake one last time for 1 min, until the chocolate will look only slightly melted. Serve warm with fresh currants!


Enjoy!
