Preheat oven to 375oF (190oC).

Spread 1/2 cup (125 ml) bittersweet chocolate chips on the pizza crust, and heat the crust in the oven for 2 minutes. Remove from oven, and spread out melted chips with the back of a spoon.

Whisk together Ricotta, pumpkin purée, egg, flour, brown sugar and spices.

Spread out on chocolatey pizza crust and bake 15 minutes. Let cool.

Melt 1/2 cup (125 ml) bittersweet chocolate chips. Transfer to a small plastic bag and cut off a corner.

Gently squeeze the bag of chocolate to make a spiral shape on the Ricotta topping.

Repeat with the white chocolate.

Using the tip of a knife, make lines in the melted chocolate spiral starting at the centre of the pizza and moving toward the edge. Space the lines roughly 2˝ (5 cm) apart (at the edge). To create a web shape, make new lines in between the existing ones, moving from the outer edge toward the centre.

Garnish with fruit or insect-shaped jujubes.


Canadian Cream cheese, Mascarpone.
