YYC Pizza Week Food Bloggers Pizza Challenge – Please VOTE!

Hi All! YYC Pizza Week is officially upon us and to kick it off several Calgary Food Bloggers have made pizzas to be judged by family, friends, and YOU…the public!

I made my pizza the day my daughter turned 16 and she is definitely an inspiration to me! And so, may I present to you….

Sweet 16 pear chestnut pizza


An autumn style dessert pizza inspired by my ‘Sweet 16’ year old daughter. A little bit nutty, a little bit sweet, and a whole lotta cinnamon sass.

The SWEET 16 pizza begins with a chestnut flour base with just the right amount of chew. The ‘sauce’ features our core ingredient ‘chestnut purée’, mixed with dulce de leche and spiced with cinnamon. The sauce is topped with candied cinnamon pear slices and roasted hazelnuts. Finally, cinnamon chocolate is shaved over the top.

I would be absolutely thrilled if I would have YOUR vote. Please head to YYC Pizza Week Food Blogger Pizza Challenge to vote.
