What is Dulce de Leche?

Dulce de leche is a confection from Latin America prepared by slowly heating sweetened milk to create a substance that derives its flavour from the Maillard reaction, also changing colour.

Dulce de leche is Spanish for "Sweet [made] of milk". dulce de leche is known as 'manjar de leche or just 'manjar.

You might notice a strange ingredient in the recipe and that is lemon juice. Dipping the banana slices in lemon juice will stop them from going brown.

It is quite expensive though, so I can recommend an alternative; Carnation Caramel, it still tastes amazing and I have used it a few times when making Dulch de Leche filled Muffins.

Anyway, both are available in any good supermarket.

Readymade Pizza Base

I can't recommend these pizza bases from Marks and Spencer enough! They're sold in packs of 2 and you'll find them in the food hall, usually on the grocery counter, somewhere near the rice and pasta.

They're lovely and soft and actually don't look too readymade if you know what I mean.

Ingredients in this recipe

  • 1 x soft shop-bought pizza base - I used Marks and Spencer's
  • 2 bananas - sliced
  • 1 lemon - juice only (to stop the bananas from going brown)
  • about 8 squares of dark chocolate - melted

Dessert Pizza Recipe

This is quite rich so this recipe will easily serve 4 - Serve as it is or with ice cream.
Prep time: 5 MinCook time: 15 MinTotal time: 20 Min


  • 1 x soft, shop-bought pizza base
  • a jar of Dulce de Leche (I used Merchant Gourmet) you won't need to use the whole jar so it's an excuse to make more pizzas!
  • 2 bananas - sliced
  • 1 lemon - juice only (to stop the bananas from going brown)
  • about 8 squares of dark chocolate - melted


Preheat your oven to 200°C /400°F or Gas 6
  1. Put the pizza base onto a baking tray or pizza stone and brush it around the edge with water and sprinkle the edge with caster sugar.
  2. Cook the pizza base for about 15 minutes WITHOUT adding any topping.
  3. Meanwhile, squeeze the juice from a lemon into a small bowl. Slice the bananas and cover them, a couple at a time to make sure they get fully coated with the lemon juice. Removing the banana slices as you go, put them onto a plate. *If you don't use lemon juice your bananas will go brown almost instantly.
  4. Once the pizza has cooked and is golden around the edge, remove it from the oven and put it onto a wire rack and allow it to cool slightly.
  5. Spread over the Dulce de Leche leaving the golden edge of the pizza on show.
  6. Arrange the sliced bananas over the caramel.
  7. Get a fork and dip it into the melted chocolate. Drizzle over the pizza using a side-to-side motion from a little height - that's the best way to get a nice-looking covering of chocolate.
  8. Eat while the pizza is still nice and warm.
