JUBILEE CELEBRATIONS!:Idea no.2 Chocolate & Fruit Union Jack Pizza


Here's a bright, jolly, effective
and tasty dish for your
Jubilee Celebrations....infact this is delicious any time of the year!
The Union Jack style pizza is a little bit fiddly to make, but well worth the effort.

***


You will need:(Per Pizza)

1 Warburtons Squareish Wrap
1 mini pot Chocolate Philadelphia
Fresh strawberries, sliced and halved
Fresh raspberries
Fresh blueberries, halved

*

It's 6pp/approx.300kcal for the whole thing.


Take 1 Warburtons Square-ish Wrap.


Using this image as reference for a Union Jack flag, cut the wrap using scissors into the right shapes. It's much easier if you can serve this on a white plate, so that the white areas of the flag are, infact, the plate showing through your design. 


The reason I cut it first is because the base will be baked and crispy. It would be very difficult to cut and serve attractively as a whole, finished piece. So, although it's fiddly to arrange the fruit on the cut shapes, it's much easier to serve like this. The small triangles and stripes are easy to pick up with fingers. The large cross shape in the middle can be 'snapped' or cut without any problems.

***

Spray some greaseproof paper with a little Frylight Sunflower oil, then place the shapes onto the paper and bake on a baking tray for 10-15 minutes at 200 degrees centigrade.


Allow to cool.
Working methodically, spread each baked shape carefully with Chocolate Philadelphia. This acts as a 'glue' to hold the cut slices of fruit. Arrange the fruit so that it completely covers the chocolate and 'fills' each shape. Look how the cut edges of the strawberries fit right against the edge of the baked base.
Top the central cross with raspberries for a wonderful 3-D jewel effect.



Imagine how effective two or three of these would look on a themed buffet table alongside other celebratory foods.


***

Of course, this idea would translate beautifully for other celebrations such as birthdays - you could make someone's initials or name out of fruit.
For a yummy dessert any time of the year, just bake a rectangular base, spread with chocolate Philadelphia, then arrange slices of banana,strawberries, grapes, melon etc.
into stripes for a beautifully
vibrant and delicious dish.
This could serve 2-4 people for a very propoint/calorie - friendly pudding!

Who says pizza has to be savoury?

Why does the Queen use all these special caterers and chefs - just use Janey Green and all the country's problems would be solved. 'Eat a Union Jack a Day'. Looks absolutely beautiful and i am sure will taste as good. Perhaps a Royal Warrant is on the way
