Chocolate and banana pizza boat


This is a traditional pizza-like food served in Greece. It’s called “Peinirli”. It is shaped like a boat and can be filled with both pizza toppings and sweet toppings like this!

  • Preheat oven to 220* C (428*F) Fan.
  • Place a baking pan, upside down, in the oven and let it get extremely hot.
  • In the mixers bowl, whisk together the yeast, water and 140 g of flour, using a hand whisk. Allow the mixture to rise for 30 minutes, until bubbles form.
  • In a small saucepan, melt the chocolate along with the olive oil. Stir continuously with a spatula over low heat.
  • When the yeast mixture is ready, add the remaining flour. Start to mix with the hook attachment and add the melted chocolate.
  • Mix until an elastic dough has formed. Transfer dough to a bowl that has been brushed with some olive oil. Sprinkle dough with some semolina and cover with plastic wrap. Let it rise until it doubles in size, for 1 to 1 ½ hours.
  • When the dough is ready, divide into 6 parts. Roll out each piece of dough to a sheet 3 cm thick, with a rolling pin. Sprinkle with semolina, to help the dough roll out easier.
  • Folding the edges of the dough, on both sides, giving it a boat shape. Fill the wide middle part with mascarpone, some sliced bananas and a few tablespoons of hazelnut-chocolate sauce.
  • Sprinkle some semolina onto a pizza peel (the special wooden tool with a long handle used to slide pizzas in and out of the oven).
  • Carefully transfer the “peinirli” to the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • Remove with the pizza peel. Serve warm.


You can use any ingredients you like for toppings. Make sure the baking pan put in the oven is situated above the oven fan, so that the dough can rise while baking!
