Pistachio Butter & White Chocolate Pizza

yummy looking vegan pizza with white chocolate and red berries

Gotta appreciate Italy’s gift of pizza to the world, but it sure is fun (and rewarding) to go rogue with a decidedly un-Italian version sometimes. Pistachio butter, raspberries and white chocolate live in perfect harmony on this crusty dough.

Preparation time Prep: 10 mins
bake 20 mins
Skill level Easy Peasy

You will need:

  • 1 ball pizza dough, or premade base
  • 200g pistachios
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 punnet raspberries, halved
  • 1 bar of vegan white chocolate
  • Maple syrup, drizzle
  • Icing sugar, for dusting
  • Extra pistachios, for topping
Recipe: Michael Craig


  • 1Roast the pistachios in the oven at 200°C for 10 minutes. Remove the pistachios and set aside a small handful for later (for crunchy topping!). Then turn the oven up to 250°C and place your pizza stone or a tray in the oven to preheat.
  • 2Blend most pistachios in a food processor with salt until smooth; you will need to pause a few times along the way to scrape the mixture from the sides of the bowl. Depending on the food processor, this could take about 10 minutes, but will eventually be a nice smooth nut butter.
  • 3Stretch out the pizza base and brush with olive oil. Cook on a hot pizza stone for 10 minutes.
  • 4Take the base out of the oven, and top with pistachio butter as you would a pizza sauce.
  • 5Scatter raspberries across the pizza, and grate over as much white chocolate as your heart desires. Sprinkle over the reserved toasted pistachios, a drizzle of maple syrup, and a light dusting of icing sugar.
  • 6Pat yourself on the back (and thank Michael Craig from Red Sparrow Pizza for this recipe) cause that's gonna be one delicious dessert pizza!
