Breaking News: Dessert Pizza Cake!

Pin It!

But first: Thank You!

Truly, heartfelt thanks for your sweet comments on my photo yesterday.

Your compliments mean so much to me. No, not because I’m vain; because I’m self-conscious! It’s terrifying, posting photos of myself on the blog! I’m guessing a lot of y’all probably feel the same way.

And now, big news for pizzerts: Some of y’all have found that your Breakfast Pizzerts, if made the fat-free way, tend to experience separation anxiety when you remove them from the pan. In other words, they stick (or crumble).

This is especially true with the Gluten-Free Pizzert.

Luckily, I found a remedy for this issue: instead of cooking the pizzert in a cake pan, roll the mixture out onto a cookie sheet (lightly sprayed or coated with oil). Separation anxiety cured!

Using this new method, I made the above pizzert cake for the little sister of a friend. It’s a spelt-and-coconut-flour pizzert half, stacked to look like a cake.

For the icing, I used my incredible Fudge Frosting.

I’d planned on adding sliced strawberries, but the cutie-pie customer insisted: “Spwinkles! Spwinkles!” And since the customer is always right, spwinkles it was. Hey, it’s still healthier than a Dairy Queen blizzard, one of my snacks-of-choice, growing up. (And I turned out ok!)


In-your-face pizzert with the Coconut Fudge Frosting.

Rule of thirds? What’s that?

Did you mispronounce any words when you were little?

I think it’s so cute how my friend’s sister says “spwinkles.” When I was little, I’d tell you my favorite color was “tur-toise” and my favorite food was “brocci.” And my sister would tell you my name was Tatie. We’d have her practice the K sound, but she’d just go like this: K-K-K…Tatie.

Katie is the baker, photographer, and author of the popular blog Chocolate-Covered Katie. Her favorite food is chocolate, and she believes in eating a balanced diet that includes dessert every single day. More about Katie—>

    Yep, that looks goood!
    I used to say hos-podal instead of hospital, cos my lovely sister told me that’s how you pronounce it :/ hard habit to get out of! Oh, and I used to think it was ‘pellow’, not ‘pilllow’ :p

  2. Jennifer JCD says:

    Wow, just wow! Yes, you looked gorgeous in that photo yesterday, but the photos today beautiful too! Mmmm… sprinkles!

    I don’t think I mispronounced too many words for very long, but I remember learning to count big numbers when I was 4 and 5 and I could get all the way up to 100! Then I thought I was really clever and could count to one hundred ninety-nine followed by one hundred one hundred, one hundred one hundred one… etc. The number TWO hundred didn’t make it into my counting vocabulary for a long time. 😉

  3. Katie, these pictures are SO beautiful!! I LOVE the color scheme, holy cow. These are just amazing. Next time we get together I think you need to teach me a thing or two about food photography.. which will require some fun recipe-making, of course. Darn. 😛

    1. Sounds tedious… but maybe I could gear up for it. As long as there’s no chocolate. ‘Cause that would just be too much ;).

  4. That pizzert cake looks fantastic, love the sound of the icing as well! 😀

  5. Hannah says:

    I love the sprinkles! I had a hard time with “spaghetti” as a child. I said “bisgetti” a lot!

    1. Valerie says:

      Haha love this! In our house, it’s “psketti.”

  6. Valerie says:

    Katie, that cake looks incredible! And I agree, a few artificial sprinkles never hurt anyone. The fact that they’re on top of a whole-grain cake made with sugar-free icing? Now THAT is awesome!

  7. HOLY MOLY that is beautiful!!! the vibrancy of blue in those sprinkles is AMAZING
    AHAHAH YES.. my brother is called Christopher.. when i was little i called him Fistapher and he called me Cawee… and i still mispronounce his name.. now I just say Chrisher– cuz c’mon 3 syllables is just too too much

  8. YUM! That dessert pizza cake is totally an acceptable breakfast, right? 😉

    1. Of course! :)
      I’ve certainly done it before!

  9. GabyE says:

    I have yet to try the breakfast pizzert, but I see them in my near future. They look delish!

    As for mispronounced words, I used to say tertoo (turtle) , and a bonus – i wrote my ‘y’s backwards for a very long time. haha.

  10. Gen says:

    Wow!! That looks amazing! =D

  11. Rachel says:

    I used to say gard-jup (garbage) and used to get the words garage and garbage mixed up all the time. I still sometimes have to think before I say those words, lol.

  12. That looks very festive! You are a very creative cook! My son couldn’t say his sisters name which is Katy, it came out Kay-kay! We loved it!

  13. Super yummy! I uses to say melk as a kid instead of milk..although I think I still say melk :)

  14. LOL this question brings back so many memories. I hope I can capture the humor in this comment! So, I essentially grew up learning English and Gujarati (my parents native language) together. Because of that, there were so many times where I would say an English word in a very Indian way. For example, many Indian people pronounce stove st-uh-ve, so I would prounce it that way too. LOL! In high school, my friends and I would review all the words that we misprounce because we grew up first generation American. Good times! Have a great day, Katie!!!

    1. I’m always so jealous of kids who learned two languages growing up! I’d rather know two pretty well than only one 100%! I have a friend from Taiwan whose dad always speaks to her in Taiwanese, and she answers in English. Too cool!

  15. Hela says:

    wow, this looks superb!!! I love the blue sprinkles! but you do, too, don´t ya? 😉
    I used to mispronounce two words, when I was little. one is rather funny. Instead of saying “Mutti” (“Mum” in German) I said “Nutti”, and “Nutte” is meaning “hooker” :D:D
    btw: my friends LOVED the vegan cupcakes!! first they were like “not too bad for a vegan cupcake”, then they were like “it is actually REALLY yummi” and then “can I have another one, please?” :)

    1. lol oh my gosh, that is hilarious!

      1. Hela says:

        it is, isn´t it?? I still get teased for that 😉

  16. Hannah says:

    I used to mess up cinnamon. Cin-na-na-min.

    1. hey, that’s a hard word to say lol. I still mess up some words!

  17. Hehe :) This goes on the list of recipes-to-make from your blog! You have to slow down so I can catch up, haha 😀
    And omg, Dairy Queen is awesome. I used to love getting the reese cup blizzard in chocolate ice cream. YUmmmmmm
    When I was little (and up until about 10th grade) I always pronounced the state ‘Arkansas’ just the way it was spelled. Until my mom heard me saying it and corrected me. The little boy that I used to nanny says “hostibal” instead of “hospital” Te he :)

    1. I’d get the mint blizzards. And then of course I had to hold it upside down, because the commercial said it wouldn’t ever fall out. (It never did, but my mom was not pleased that I tried it in the car!)

  18. Gosh, that looks just like a slice of cake, only BETTER! 😀 I remember my little sister always calling my dad “Si-wee Daddy!” :)


  19. Katie, I absolutely love your blog! I’ve been following it for a long time now but am kinda wimpy when it comes to commenting so this is my first comment! I couldn’t not comment on that breakfast pizzert – it looks divine. I’m a huge fan of yours and can’t get enough of your recipes and the nifty lil’ tricks you use – keep ’em coming :)

    1. Wow, Meghan, your comment means SO much to me… and lol your blog title is too cute! So happy to “meet” you :).

  20. YUM! You have the best ideas for turning every meal into a treat. :)

    My baby sister couldn’t say “Laura” when she was little, so she called me “Wa Wa.” To this day my family calls me “Wa Wa.”

  21. katie says:

    Your pic on the last post, you look beautiful as ever Katie! : )

    I still have not made this pizzert, and good to know now there is a better way to make it!

    Looks so good!!!

    Happy weekend love! xoxo <3

  22. I had a speech impediment as a kid, so I pretty much said everything wrong :) I also said ‘pasketti’ instead of spaghetti!

  23. I love your pizzerts to begin with but this takes them to a whole new level! Can’t to try some of the fudgey frosting!

  24. Gahh, how do you do it?! ha

    Have a great Friday :)

  25. Rule of thirds? What’s that? = that would be a third of your diet should be in the form of chocolate, right? :)

    I love reading about photography stuff…it’s like a whole new world opened up to me a few months ago!

    Posting pics of myself…I actually do less lately. Because I hate stalking my inbox waiting for the other shoe to drop, if you know what I mean. And I know you do.

    Enjoy your weekend hon! :)

    1. Haha well, in my book, it’d be 1/3 of your diet should be everything else besides chocolate ;).

  26. I couldn’t say my R’s, they were all W’s. Along with the, I’d always say “aluminuminuminum” and “cinamonimon” 😛

  27. I love putting photos of myself on my blog.. but I’m also a bit vain. 😉

  28. I don’t know if I mispronounced any words as a kid, but my 2 year old does now and it is the cutest thing ever! One of my favorites is “Movie time!” which translates to “Smoothie time!” :-)

    1. awwww times a million and a half!

  29. Kelly says:

    Loved the blue sprinkles. I make my pizzert in a pizza pan. No problem with crumbing or sticking at all.

  30. whitney says:

    Ohh my gosh, I love this. Well, I haven’t tried it yet. But I still love itt! Can’t wait to make this.

    I could never pronounce my R’s! I remember taking a speech class because it would not go away! They always tried to make me say “rail-road” but it was more like “wail-woad”! How embarrassing….


  31. Katie, these pictures are so pretty! Love the blue!

  32. Jess says:

    lol i’m so hungry now. i used to refer to dr seuss as “w” seuss

  33. Disturbed says:

    I can’t say it.
    I don’t know why.
    I just can’t.

  34. I love those blue sprinkles!

    I used to have a hard time pronouncing hospital and spaghetti when I was a toddler, luckily I grew out of it, lol! I also called albacore tuna Albuquerque. 😆

  35. bitt says:

    Pretty pizzert! Now that they make organic sprikles, we can have some once in awhile, huh?

    I don’t remember what I mispronounced, But I remember helping my brother (4 years younger) with his “th” sounds. It’s pronounce it like an F. cute.

    1. bitt says:

      ps: I dislike posting pics of myself on my blog unless they are exceptionally good. i’d rather post pics of my dogs and cat. they always look cute and never get pimples!

      1. LOL! I’d say the same, except my black dog, Molly, is not very photogenic. She’s adorable in real life. But in photos, unless she sticks her tongue out, she just looks like a black blob!

  36. Camille says:

    I have been told that I say the word “toddler” wrong. I say it “toddle-er”. I still say that I am right! And I also used to say won like “juan”, I corrected that one though!

    1. Ya know, until your comment, I never put two and two together as to why little kids are called toddlers… cause they toddle!

  37. I’m so sorry I haven’t commented lately! I went back and read all your posts and they’re amazing as always! I especially love those raw mint brownies! :) And I agree with everyone else that that picture of you is gorgeous!

    That pizzert looks SO good! I love the fudge layers!

    I used to pronounce biscuit like biksit. I kind of still wish I did 😉

    Have an amazing weekend, girl! 😀

    1. Aw, you’re such a sweetie… do you remember Limp Biskit? lol 90s band!

  38. My two favourite things together at last: cake and pizza! It looks yummy!

  39. BroccoliHut says:

    Haha, my family also has a few funny mispronunciations that live on today. I always said that I wanted “danilla” ice cream, and my sister often talked about packing her own “hootcase.” Those are regular parts of our vocabulary to this day!

  40. Moni'sMeals says:

    oh yummm. :) Gotta have the blue sprinkles!

  41. Sandi says:

    k-k-k-tatie! That made me laugh. I used to say “instresting” instead of “interesting”…my dad still makes fun of me about it.

  42. änne says:

    the cake looks sooo good,it’s amazing how effortlessly a “simple” pizzert can be transformed into a dessert that makes childrens eyes pop out :-) I have to keep that in mind when I’m babysitting again…
    As for mispronounciations,I don’t remember certain words,but I had a time then I switched parts of a word,so instead of “sidewalk” I’d have said “walkside”…and until today I tend to talk very very VERY fast when I’m excited,leaving out entire words…and believe me,it does not depend on the language I use 😀

  43. Katie your photography looks absolutely beautiful! :) and that is such a cute, and delicious looking cake!

    when i get home for break i am most definitely making me a pizzert 😉

  44. I’ve GOT to make some of these pizzerts I have been seeing them just about everywhere and they look DELISH!

  45. Aww, I love the blue spwinkles! The only sprinkles I have right now are Christmas colors… 😕

    I could not for the life of me pronounce the word “film” when I was little…it always came out “phlegm” Bahahaha!

  46. Charissa says:

    Amazing recipe….I’m in love.
    I used to say am’nt. A lot…code for “I’m not”. My family would say, “You’re saying ‘am’nt’!” I would reply with a frown. “No, I am’nt.” Haha…

    1. Aww hehe so cute! And economical too… why waste breath on more syllables, right? 😉

  47. shannonmarie says:

    Those photos are beautiful. I love how the sprinkles match the blue ribbons in the background. Nice use of space. The subject looks quite delicious, too.

  48. Katie says:

    I’m going to make this tonight!! I was always called “Teegy” (for Katie) by my little sister. I guess K’s were tough for all little kids :-p

    1. LOL our sisters would’ve been great friends! Poor us, right? 😉

  49. Kim says:

    I used to say “Bref-kest” instead of “breakfast.” My parents thought that it was cute, so they didn’t even mention it to me until I was about 9 years old. By that point it was kind of hard to stop.

  50. gisel says:

    hey whats the reciepe for the dessert pizza the one with the blue sprinkles i cant get it on the page ?? looks so awesome !

    1. Maggie says:

      The more I look at the word “pizzert” the more it sounds like “pervert”… which also rhymes with “dessert” …If that makes me a dessert pervert, I’m not sure what that means exactly, but I’ll deal with it.
