Breaking News: Dessert Pizza Cake!

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.

    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. Kelsey @ Clean Teen Kelsey says

    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. 😛

  4. 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!

  5. Carrie (Moves 'N Munchies) says

    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

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Parita @ myinnershakti says

    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!!!

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      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!

  9. 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?” 🙂

  10. Stacey (The Home-Cooked Vegan) says

    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 🙂

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      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!)

  11. 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

  12. 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….


  13. Meghan @ StruggleMuffins says

    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 🙂

  14. 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.

    • 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!

  15. kaila @ healthy helper! says

    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!

  16. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) says

    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! 🙂

  17. Alexandra (Veggin' Out in the Kitchen) says

    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! 😀

  18. Mary @ Bites and Bliss says

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

  19. J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) says

    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. 😆

  20. 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.

  21. 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!

  22. 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!

  23. 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 😀

  24. Heather @ kissmybroccoli says

    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!

  25. 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…

  26. 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

  27. 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.

  28. 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 !

    • 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.
