Rocky road dessert pizza


Every time we make pizza here at my place we usually have a dessert pizza made with leftover dough. This one was inspired by a picture my sister posted in her facebook status, it was a marshmallow pizza. The next time we had pizza I thought my kids just love marshmallows, why not just add a few more yummy things to it, so here's my version.

Rocky Road Dessert Pizza.

Leftover Pizza dough

Frozen Raspberries
Dark chocolate roughly chopped
vanilla ice cream

Roll out the dough, lay it out onto an oiled pizza tray,
Scatter the roughly chopped chocolate, not too much but make sure there is enough for each piece of pizza.
Next add a handful of frozen raspberries,
Finish with marshmallows.
Bake for 12 min, hot oven, or till base is cooked.

Let it sit for 5 min as it's molten hot.
Serve with vanilla ice cream.

The combination here is just right, you have tartness, sweetness, bitterness, hot and cold. I mean isn't that good.
My kids thought this was the be all end all of dessert.

going away

I don't really ever go on about how it is for me having four children.

I try to keep my posts mostly positive sometimes I share snippets of the difficulty mostly I share the happiness and joy they give me. I have been a parent for ten years I have been a wife for almost seventeen. Today I stepping away from my post to spend some time away with a friend for the first time in all those years.

I cannot express the sadness I have to leave my still breastfed almost two-year-old. I know that she will be fine, I intend to continue to feed her when I return in four days. This may seem wrong or insane to some to go away for a break. My own self is struggling with it all.

I give everything to my house I have neglected my idea of home.

I am going to miss my family and I am going to appreciate them more when I return. I am looking forward to quiet to sleep and the break from all the nagging I have been doing, to not have to look after anyone for these up coming days. I hope I learn something about myself and redistribute myself in different ways when I get back.

I leave here with no lists, no instructions... just trust that will be ok.
