Dessert Pizzas from Around the World

Besides the run-of-the-mill savory pizzas that you're used to, in Brazil, they also like dessert pizzas. Since Brazil has both Domino's and Pizza Hut, it's not surprising that each chain offers a dessert pie or two to complete your meal...

At Domino's Brazil, they offer a Banana Pizza and a Chocolate Pizza.

The Banana Pizza (shown above) comes topped with mozzarella, banana, sugar, and cinnamon. I'm a bit curious as to how the mozzarella works with other ingredients.

The Chocolate Pizza looks a bit like worms on a pizza, but it's actually Nestle chocolate sprinkles with an unfortunate appearance. Underneath there's vanilla cream and chocolate icing on your standard pizza crust.

Pizza Hut Brazil has a similar item that they call the Brigadeiro Pizza. A brigadeiro is basically a Brazilian chocolate bonbon and is covered with chocolate sprinkles. The pizza is much the same:

But Brazil, isn't the only country where the pizza chain's offer dessert pizza.

At most Domino's locations in the Middle East, there's the Chocolate Calzone:

It features a crunchy thin crust filled with melted chocolate and sprinkled with powdered sugar.

But that's not to say they haven't offered dessert pizza here in the States.

Back in 2007, Domino's was offering the Oreo Dessert Pizza:

And, in 2011,
Papa Murphy's offered a Smore's Pie around Valentine's Day.
