Pizza and cake are two of world’s most delicious entities. With how tasty these dishes are on their own, imagine the awesomeness that would ensue if someone found a way to combine them into one super food? Imagine no more.
Reddit user chiiza won some internet kudos recently when she posted a pizza cake she made to imgur, and baking giant Pillsbury followed up that post with a recipe of their own. Here is Pillsbury’s.
Start by grabbing a pan with tall sides, preferably a cake pan. Then, flatten out two rolls of refrigerated pizza dough. Cut out five six-inch circles from the dough and bake them in the oven for eight minutes.
Next, you’ll cut out a strip from the remaining dough that will wrap around the inside wall of the cake pan. Make sure the strip is half an inch taller than the pan. Cover the inside edge of the cake pan with parchment paper, and then put your dough in place. Then, put one of your pre-baked circles on the bottom. It should look like this:
Next, cover that bottom layer with a generous portion of pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni. Add another pre-baked dough circle, and repeat. Continue adding layers and toppings until you’ve reached the top of the pan. When your pizza cake looks like this, throw it in the oven for 20-25 minutes:
After 20-25 minutes you should have a golden-crusted pizza cake waiting for you. Take the cake out of the cake pan using the parchment paper. Let it cool for a few minutes and enjoy.
