Sweet Mimosa Inspired Pizza Twists
Hey everyone! Sorry for the delay in posting this. Classes started a few weeks ago and posting this last recipe completely slipped my mind. But anyways, the grand finale has finally arrived! These twists are so simple to make but look super cute and taste amazing. I mean honestly, this recipe was bound to taste pretty freakin' good because it combines two of the most delicious things in the world: bread and mimosas. Seriously, if I was stranded on a desert island, my choice items to bring would probably be an endless supply of bread and mimosas (yes, I'm that food driven). But regardless of whether you're stranded on a desert island or just plain hungry, these twists make perfect companions for any brunch (or Superbowl) gathering.
Pizza dough - I used the Pillsbury crust but you can use any vegan variety you'd like.
1 cup cream cheese
1 tsp cashew milk
1 tsp orange juice
2 tsp cane sugar
1/4 cup champagne
1 1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp orange zest
*cinnamon & additional orange zest for garnish
1. Pre-heat oven according to the directions your dough requires.
2. Cut your dough into strips about 2 inches wide and 6 inches long. In a small bowl cream together all of the ingredients for the filling. Spoon the filling down the middle of each strip so that it's just one long thin line. Next, begin twisting the sides of one strip over to form a twist. Don't worry if some of the filling comes out just push it back in with your fingers or a spoon. Repeat for each strip.
3. Bake according to the directions for your dough. Remove from the oven and allow the twists to cool.
4. While the twists are cooling, mix together vanilla, champagne and orange zest for the icing. Slowly whisk in the powdered sugar until you've achieved your desired consistency. Drizzle over the twists. Top with cinnamon and extra orange zest if you're feeling fancy.
