Coconut Macaroon Pizza #SundaySupper

Coconut Macaroon Pizza

I loved pizza as a kid.  Probably as much as any other kid.  It’s comforting and easy to eat and can be delivered on a whim.  It was served at birthday parties and as part of our school’s Book It program.  We ate it at the mall and at home.  Pizza.  Who doesn’t like pizza.

While, in most cases me.  Your confused now, as you should be.  See, I don’t like tomato sauce.  At all.  I can’t eat anything with tomato sauce on it.  Pasta.  Pizza.  Mozzarella sticks.  Nothing.

So I required special pizzas made with no sauce (I was onto the white pizza trend before it was a trend) or in certain circumstances calzones, which almost never have sauce on, or rather in, them.

I haven’t had pizza in a long time, though I have had a craving for it, and there are plenty of awesome pizza places popping up everywhere.  While I could have crossed homemade pizza off my cooking bucket list, I took a different route this pizza themed Sunday Supper.

Coconut Macaroon Pizza

I made dessert pizza.  Coconut Macaroon Pizza.  I wasn’t sure how this would turn out, but upon one bite I realized it was pretty much everything and blows savory pizza out of the water.

It all starts with a giant coconut macaroon base.  Who doesn’t love coconut macaroons?  Okay, people who don’t like coconut, but for the rest of us, this is an awesome start.  Then I topped it with apricot jam and popped it back into the oven to get all caramelized.  Some homemade hot fudge, dried cherries and toasted pecans round everything out.

I was surprised at how awesome the apricot and fudge worked together- this awesome sweet, tart, bitter combo that is only enhanced by the chewy cherries, crunchy pecans and coconut macaroon that goes from crispy to chewy as you work your way from crust to center.

Plus, this just happens to be gluten free and totally serves a crowd.  The next party you have, this needs to be on the menu.
