Guy Fieri’s Cherry Cobbler Pizza for Pass the Cook Book Club

Cherry Cobbler Pizza

I should feel really bad about eating this decadent cherry dessert pizza.

I should not be eating cherry pie pizza drizzled with chocolate when I’m suppose to be watching my diet.

I really should feel guilty and bad about myself.

But look at this freaking thing.

Would you feel bad?

I certainly don’t.

Not even after 3 slices…

or 4…

or even 5.

Somewhere around slice #8 I started to think I should probably walk away with some dignity left.

But then I figured there were only 4 slices left and the family would be home soon.

So I polished them off with a big old cherry smile and passed out on the couch.

Not a lick of guilt to be found.

Or a crumb of cherry cobber pizza either.

This is my first time joining the Pass the Cook Book Club. The group is run by the amazing Kita of Pass the Sushi. You all know I love me some Kita. She’s also my site designer and you can find her work at Silhouette Graphics. When Kita posted the recipes for March I may have done a happy dance. There was no question in my mind which one I was making. They all looked fabulous but me and cherries are old friends, so I knew we needed to meet again. And meet we did. The cherry cobbler pizza met my piehole and didn’t stand a chance of survival.

This month we tackled Guy Fieri Food. Each month Kita picks some recipes from different cook books she has gathering dust. We then pick which one we’d like to make and then post as a group at the end of the month. It’s a great group of bloggers and I hope you all join us. Even if you do not have a blog you can still join. I know right. Kita is awesome like that. So if you want to cook along and join the fun but don’t blog, that’s totally cool. So hop on into that kitchen of yours and get cooking.

I love Guy’s show and watch it whenever I get the chance. We want to take a road trip and visit some restaurants he’s had on the show. Seems like such a fun thing to do. He finds the most interesting restaurants and we’re usually drooling by the time the show is over. The man knows food. And I’ve realized after making this dish that the man knows food really well. This pizza is genius. Except for the mascarpone I was supposed to top it with. Sorry Guy, I swapped it for chocolate. It’s a Girl Thang.

Guy Fieri’s Cherry Cobbler Pizza

Decadent dessert pizza recipe topped with cherry pie filling, cobbler mix, and drizzled with chocolate.

Ingredients

  • 1 portion pizza dough (Guy calls for whole wheat but I used white)
  • 1 cup quick rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • Pinch of fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (I combined 1/4 teaspoon regular and 1/4 teaspoon roasted saigon cinnamon)
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 can of cherry pie filling (21 oz size)
  • 2 oz of semi sweet chocolate, melted

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. (original recipe calls for 500 degrees)
  • Spray a pizza pan with non stick spray.
  • Spread your dough over the pan.
  • Poke the dough with a fork a few times.
  • Spread the cherry pie filling over top and smooth out.
  • Now in a stand mixer combine the oats, sugar, butter, salt, cinnamon and almonds and mix well. Take that mixture and spoon out over top of the cherry pie filling leaving gaps here and there.
  • Pop the pizza in your preheated oven and cook for about 10 to 12 minutes. Start keeping an eye on it around the 8 minute mark.
  • While it cooks melt you chocolate in the microwave. Takes about a minute, but check and still every 15 to 30 seconds to prevent overcooking.
  • Remove pizza from oven.
  • Drizzle chocolate over pizza.
  • Serve with a big old there goes the diet smile!

    That dessert pizza looks better than Guy Fieri’s :)

  2. 3

    This looks AMAZING! I made the pork potstickers from the book last year. Fabulous!

  3. 5

    Technically if you only count the pizza as “one”, then you only had one slice.

  4. 7

    LOVE the pics!!!

  5. 9

    Chocolate was a good call. You and Guy make a pretty good pizza team.

      Thanks lady, it only he’d take me on one of his road trips. I bet the viewers would love hearing “winner winner chicken dinner” with my Canuck accent. Eh.

    Wow, what a wonderful looking pizza! I’ve never had a dessert pizza – what a brilliant idea! Definitely something to work on. ;-) Thanks a bunch for this!

    • 12

      Thanks so much John. I’ve done cookie crust dessert pizzas. I was super sceptical of this one but OMG it’s the bomb.

  7. 13

    PS – after talking to you so much about K and her BF I (almost) feel bad about that big old cherry smile :D

    • 14

      Bah ha ha. I almost did too, then I remember how they eat me out of house and home. I’ll have to make boytoy a strawberry version.

  8. 15

    You go girl!

  9. 17

    This looks amazing! I definitely would feel better after having some. Delicious!

  10. 19

    Wow this looks great. No wonder you ate almost the entire pizza yourself. I would have done the same thing. No point in telling them. What they don’t know won’t hurt them. Just start your diet tomorrow. Great recipe and so simple!

  11. 21

    I am surprised that you did not make 2 my friend, this pizza is BRILILIANTTTTTT :D

    Happy Easter

    Dudette loves Guy as well (she likes his hair). I’m sure she’d like him even more if she was handed a slice of this pizza. It looks amazing. Even though I can’t eat it because of the whole chocolate thing, I am fascinated by your use of roasted Saigon cinnamon. I’ve never heard of it before but it sounds amazing. I’m going to have to hunt some down.

    • 24

      She has good taste, he has awesome hair.

      I found the cinnamon in the states. I believe it’s McCormick that makes it. It’s fabulous. I wish you could do chocolate. Although this would be good as Guy eats it with mascarpone. I’m just such a chocolate fanatic.

  13. 25

    oh my this so soooooooooo amazing- drooling

  14. 27

    I could have guessed that the cherry pizza was yours! I would have gone that route, too. Gosh, what a fun group!!!! Way too much yumminess!!!

  15. 29

    Holy COW!!! Now, THIS is what I call a pizza!! My mouth is open, jaw on the floor, and already mentally figuring out when I will have time to make this. This is absolutely awesome and I’m drooling all over my keyboard. Wow!

  16. 31

    This is calling out for a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. This looks so amazing Kim. Chocolate and cherries belong together!

    • 32

      Oh, I like the way you think. Thanks Valerie. And you are so right, I love chocolate and cherries together.

  17. 33

    Pizza is good. Cherries are awesome. Chocolate is delicious. I love this recipe :)

  18. 34

    I love that you drizzled chocolate on top I wish I would have thought of that. I liked this recipe but think I could have made a better oat crumble for the top. Great job on this recipe and can’t believe you ate the evidence before the family came home :)

  19. 35

    Oh my gosh this looks amazing! I’m not going to be able to get it out of my head! Cherries & chocolate?! Yes. Please.

  20. 36

    I’ll pretend Guy has nothing to do with this pizza and gobble this pizza down! Love this concept!

  21. 37

    LOVE this pizza. I wouldn’t feel bad about eating it either. :) I may want to give this a try just so I can see for myself how good this is! The cookbook club sounds really fun! I bet you all had a blast making these recipes. Your photos make me want to bite my computer screen!

  22. 38

    I don’t think I’d have an ounce of regret. Nope, none at all. It’s just too delicious to regret. Yum!

  23. 39

    Decadent, indeed, Kim- and so delicious!
