Wine to me is passion. It's family and friends. It's warmth of heart and generosity of spirit.

Death by Chocolate and Raspberries

1 - Store bought pizza dough
6 oz - German Baker's Chocolate 45-50% cocoa (finely chopped)
4 oz - Semi-Sweet Baker's Chocolate 50-65% cocoa (finely chopped)
2 tbs - Sugar
3 tbs - Brown Sugar
2 tbs - Butter
1 cup - Coconut
1 cup - Fresh Raspberries

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll the pizza dough to desired shape and size on a floured cooking sheet. Put dough in the oven for 4 minutes.

While the dough is in oven, melt the butter and then combine with sugar and brown sugar. Remove pizza dough from oven and brush the entire surface with the butter and sugar mixture. Once all of the mixture is applied, cover the pizza with the German and semi-sweet chocolate. Before returning to the oven, sprinkle the 1 cup of coconut evenly across the top of the pizza. Return to the oven for 6 more minutes.

Remove the pizza and then, using a butter knife, spread the melted chocolate evenly across the surface of the pizza, leaving the outer crust exposed.

Apply the fresh raspberries and enjoy!

5 minutes later enjoy your sugar rush and subsequent sugar coma!

  1. If you want to pair a wine with this, I would go with a Tokaji from Hungary or a Sauternes from Bordeaux. Although, you will probably just want a glass of milk!
